Wow! Stumbled across this while walking through downtown St. Paul with the family. Awesome food and even better service! Definitely will return if we are in the area again.

“Hamburgers, crafted not made.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

This place as the atmosphere of an old style dark, cigar smoke filled, steak house. Instead of steak, however, hamburgers are the chief selection and the only smoke you should expect is be applewood. They have a great selection of sandwiches that go beyond ground beef and with a fair priced daily special on display as you enter this sun deprived, wooden cavern i can't understand the $$$ i see from some reviews.

“Won't be running back to this place.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Went here with several friends after visiting the Body Exhibit at the Science Museum. We all ordered a burger and fries. One person ordered theirs medium and it came out well done. They offered to make her another one which also came out well done. They did comp her meal which was nice but would have been better to get it right the second time. They are pretty proud of their burgers with some costing over $15. We all felt that the burgers/fries were not worth the money. Will continue to go to The Nook or Shamrocks for a real burger instead of this place.

“late night meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

We went to the Burger Bar after midnight, after a concert. The menu was great and the service was very good, considering it was quite busy. our food was very good and we would be happy to return there again for a meal. Really loved it!
