“Gourmet Burgers = AWESOME”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Hey if you're a burger person.. which is the easiest meal to make great.. or screw up.. you're IN for a TREAT at The Counter. Service is great and the burgers are MADE TO ORDER.. whatever you like as a topping, they HAVE it. Burgers don't come with fries so be sure to order the "Half & Half" which is a half plate of fries & half plate of onion rings. I don't have much else to say except get to The Counter and serve yourself up some goodness in circular meaty form.

“Decent place for gourmet burgers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

If you are looking for gourmet burgers in Venice / Marina del Rey this is a nice place to go.

We tried this restaurant twice. The food was good. Not the best burgers I ever had but nonetheless on the high side. Prices are slightly on the high side (for this type of place) but still reasonable.

I did not enjoy the decoration (a bit noisy and cold lightning) but your mileage may vary.

“Best Cheeseburger EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Wow! We stopped by this center to pick up a couple of last minute items. Were headed to Ca Pizza Kitchen when we saw the Counter and said let's try it. Warmly welcomed and there was slight wait but it turned over quickly. We were given a very inviting and complete rundown of menu, assisted in choices. Attentive service even thought very busy and cozy. Food was out of bounds good. Burger perfectly cooked and fries were just right. Service was friendly and attentive in just right way. Fun place! Upbeat vibe and fabulous food!

“Delicious Burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Super food, simple menu to build your own burger or burger bowl. A little noisy, but it hasn't kept us from going back twice.

“Have Fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Tired of normal burger places? Dislike paying high prices for so called gourmet burgers? Then the next time you are in the Marina area, I highly recommend stopping at The Counter and enjoying great food at a reasonable price. The service is excellent. Good variety of burger meats and toppings enable you to make your perfect burger. The atmosphere is casual and relaxing. Will definitely return the next time I am in the area.
