Everything seemed to be pretty average. Had the bru burger and friend had the hot chicken sandwich. The chicken sandwich was definitely the better of the two. A little pricey for what it is but nothing terrible.

The atmosphere was great, the service even better! My wife and I were in town for vacation and couldn't decide which burger to order. Our server recommended we try the plain sample burger, 4 ounces instead of 8, and have it customized. Thank you so...More

The Bloody Mary was excellent. Bourbon burger so so. Too much bun, friend liked the patty melt rye bread, although he took the top bread off

Great food with great service in a cool spot. We went for lunch. The burgers are amazing, soft bun with flavorable well cooked meat. The onion rings are very tasty. And a great beer selection.

I realize this is a burger restaurant and they are great, but the salads are amazing. My fav is the Gorganberry pecan salad with Chicken. Yumm!

Delicious food. Great service. Clean environment. Fries and house sauce were so good! Family friendly but bar seating is an option. No wait for us.

Fun area in downtown with good food however the service was disengaged and inattentive. Too bad as it had a nice vibe to the place.

I have no idea. I assume if you call them they will happily sell you one. I think they are part of the Cunningham group which is quite large. The gift certificate would probably work at any of their restaurants. karen

As long as you're willing to walk a 2 or 3 blocks you can usually find metered parking on a street or a small lot around the area. Sometimes there's a cost, sometimes not as it depends on the day or time of day.
