The food and staff were outstanding. However, the music was BAD. Music did not fit the atmosphere. I dont think the burgers can be rivaled by any place that I've eaten in Rochester.

Great menu, a little expensive but well worth the price. This has to be some of the best Seafood in the Midwest. I had the Sea Bass ratatouille. Amazing selection. This restraunt is a must try.

I was feeling a bit under the weather so we ordered to go. It was hot and so good. I love their fatty melt and the peanut butter burger. I’d highly recommend them our burgers were perfectly cooked.

Best burgers in Rochester. I have never had a bad meal here and I am a frequent flyer. Friendly and quick service, never uncomfortable. Besides the burgers they have some kick a$$ fish tacos and hot wings. Rotating tap beer and free popcorn.
