The food was really good, and I loved that it was inside the hotel. I had tasted the burger, fries, waffles, blueberry pancakes, and bacon. All very good!

We’re a British crew staying here for a week whilst visiting a conference. We had some late finishes but the awesome welcome from Kelly and Nancy in the evenings made it all a whole lot easier. Great food, good drinks and top banter. Kcaty and...the breakfast team kept us fuelled for our long days ahead!More

Amazing food and great location! My son had the chicken fingers and French fries super tasty and they came out hot and quick, I on the other hand had wings and a grilled chicken salad which was amazing! For dessert the brownie sundae which was...also perfect.The restaurant has a swanky vibe and is in the perfect spot in downtown Houston. The bar is great and the hotel is well kept. Kcaty W. was the young woman who took care of us and made our visit wonderful, checking back to make sure everything was to our liking and giving us the perfect amount of service and conversation! Ask for Kcaty W when you visit she’s amazing!More

Chef Damacus is the man!!! He put time and attention to the details and the food was amazing. I’ll be back as long as he’s in the kitchen.

The burgers are delicious. You can either pick from a selection of choice burgers or build your own. I selected the classic and added jalapeno. The burger came with fries and a pickle. The verdict: juicy and delicious. The fries were crisp and well seasoned....I also had a couple of beers and they were served at room temperature and not so great. A burger with jalapeno was about $12. Pretty expensive burger, but it was good. Would I go back...possibly not.More

Well, as the name says, it is all about Burgers! if you are a burger afficiando, you will love the menu here! The place has a nice atmosphere, which is a mix of a sports bar and a restaurant. The staff are super friendly. The...burgers itself are quite nice. Located within the Holiday Inn hotel, this is a good place to drop by if you happen to be hungry when in downtown Houston!More

I was greeted by Erica the minute I walked in. She was the only one that acknowledged me as the others were too busy. I’m really big on customer service and honestly I feel she’s gone way above and beyond her call of duty. She’s...amazing and I want her to know she’s appreciated for her service.More

So many things we wrong that I'm not sure where to start. We came in with a 3 yr old and a 1 yr old but weren't given children's menus and they don't have high chairs. We ordered drinks but she never brought my husband's...beer so we had to go to the bar to get it ourselves. We ordered our food but the waitress didn't know what all side items included for the children's menu. Our food took a long time to come and my husband and daughter both didn't receive their plates for the entire meal. We asked to speak to a manager so the "head cook" came out. He kept interrupting us when we told him what happened and said he would fix our bill. He took some things off, but it was the wrong bill and had things we didn't order. We also requested the bill to be split but only one bill was brought back so we had to request the split again. Then the bill had my meal on it twice and we were charged for my sister's drink so we had to request a new bill again. They ended up not charging us for our drinks but for all the hassle we went through for mediocre food I feel like they should have done more. It definitely did not taste like a gourmet burger. I felt bad for the waitress because she was the only server but there weren't that many people ordering food and I'm not sure how she AND the kitchen overlooked two meals. Plus we had two dirty glasses and the restaurant smelled like it had been cleaned with dirty water. Please please please find a better restaurant. Wimpys burgers is on Louisiana a few blocks over. I haven't been there but I suggest going just because our experience was that bad!More
