“OMG - Soooooooooooo GOOD”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Perhaps the best burger of my life!

Full bar with a great beer and wine selection.

I would give it five stars but, the noise level was almost intolerable. They could really use some area rugs or something on the walls to absorb sound and lessen the hard surfaces. Our group had to scream at each other across the table.

Be prepared to wait.

The staff at our hotel told us about this place on our January visit to St. Pete.... it was awesome! We purposely had friends meet us there when we returned to Florida in February... they were knocked out too. You won't be disappointed if you can find it....

“Great staff and great burgers!”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

Stumbled upon Engine No. 9 to have a beer and watch the Blackhawks game. After enjoying some Goose Islands and watching the game, I went through the menu and had to try one of these delicious looking burgers. It was amazing! Since then, I have gone back for several more burgers! Each burger has been cooked to the perfect temperature and so delicious. The fries are amazing too. Make sure to get the fried pickles also. Staff is awesome and you can always watch the Blackhawks here! A must stop in St. Petersburg. You will not leave here hungry and I guarantee you will go back to try a different burger next time!

“Best Burger on the Planet!”
Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

We are visiting our daughter in St. Petersburg. Since we live on the East Coast of Florida we decided to try something different and not fish. The specialty at Engine 9 are hamburgers and these are the best and the most different that I have every tasted. The flavors and combinations are too many to mention. You will mot be disappointed. The only have a few booths and table tops so you may have to wait but it is well worth it. Delicious food , great service and beautifully presented.

“Amazing Burgers!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

The burgers were huge and there was a lot of different choices, some very unusual. My friend had a burger made of giant shrimp and said it was great. My tex mex burger was awesome. We all had different burgers and no one was disappointed. The sweet potato fries were cooked perfectly, really yummy.
