Order at the counter and then there are food runners and bussers who will help you with what you need when you are seated...bring you drinks, silverware, condiments, etc.
Where is the restaurant from The Hyatt Place?

Response from upthehudson | Reviewed this property |
In a shopping plaza basically around the block from Hyatt Place. Maybe 10 minutes walking.
Do you have gluten free options? Are you burgers without the bun, gluten free?

I'm sure Ms. Gilbert will be more than helpful in satisfying your dietary needs. She was very reassuring when we inquired about nut allergies. And, I still say they have the BEST burgers. Hope this helps!
