People are going to spell our name wrong and they’re definitely going to question the choice. Simplicity applies to all things and burgers are most definitely not an exception. We get right to the point at HAMBRGR, giving our guests the perfect combination of locally sourced ingredients, a wide selection of craft beer, culinary artistry and of course, one of the most memorable experiences one can possibly muster in the enriching restaurant culture sweeping over the city

We had an amazing meal and great service. We had the tater tot fondue and wedge salad to start, and both were excellent. The main course, burgers, poutine and fries, were the star of the show. And unbelievably we had room to share the Funky Monkey shake, and were so glad we did; it was fantastic. We'll definitely be back :)

Don't expect too much when it comes to service though. Our waitress was super busy and seemed to disappear every now and then. Very difficult to flag her down. But once she was with us, she was great.

Specifically asked for main entrees not to immediately follow our apps. Hadn’t even finished apps and burgers came. Waitress said burgers would be medium well with some pink. Burgers were over cooked. I ordered two types of cheese and only received one. When one server tried to light the tea candle with no wick to keep fondue warm he just shrugged and said “I tried”. Would have been less time if he just grabbed another tea candle with a wick. Which another server had to do.
Very disappointing evening of overpaying for average tasting food.

We've been to the Ottawa St location numerous times and we were not disappointed with King William either. Service was great, food as always was great. We will definately be going back when we're downtown. I've lived in the city my whole life and I'm happy for the downtown rejuvenation and especially that Hmbrgr is part of it.

I will 100% be returning & wish I had tried it sooner! The burgers were so delicious, the beef patties were incredible. All the topping were so fresh. I can’t wait to try more of their apps and sides.

The food was great and Julia our server was exceptional. She was very attentive and made the experience so much better. The only issue was noise. Hard to talk but don’t let that stop you from going.

The staff were very friendly & accommodating. However, I didn’t think my salad had any kind of wow factor which I like to experience when eating out. I ordered the beet, apple & goat salad—all ingredients that I love—but maybe the dressing just didn’t have any flavour. I ordered the smashed burger with the salad & didn’t care for the taste of the burger at all (maybe undercooked or a little “off”), so I removed the meat, hoping to enjoy the salad—I was just okay.

Not up to usual par. Burger did not have its standard crisp outer edge, fries were soggy. Not typical of either location. Service was fantastic. No problem. Been here many times, of course will continue to go, everyone has off days.

Great location and good food. Wish the fried chicken sister restaurant was available since I love fried chicken.
Very generous portions and lots of choice.
Great milkshake.
Would definitely come back again.

We went here for my husband’s birthday lunch.
Great menu with a lot of drink choices

Everyone loved the shakes for dessert and you can have them with alcohol.

The parm fries were not enjoyed by our group. They found them disappointing

We’ve been to your place several times , cause in our opinion it is the best burger in town. I love the fact I can try a draft that I’ve never tried before just to see if I like it , next time I’m going to get the Flight . This is the first time my wife and I had dessert, one of the extreme Milkshakes, pretty incredible !!!!

Awesome as usual. The only problem is that I order too many apps (because they are so delish) and then I’m so full when my burger comes 🤦🏻‍♀️ get the popcorn !

HAMbrgr is a great restaurant, whichever location you choose. The food is great quality and the portions are very satisfying. My favourite meal is made up of the BYOB burger, sharing poutine and a chocolate milkshake. So yummy.

Our server was one of the best ones we have had! I forget her name but she was training the new guy! He also was really good! They both kept checking up on us more frequently compared to most waiters and waitresses. Food and drinks were amazing. Wish the tables werent so close as the people we originally sat beside were extremely loud and annoying. But overall, was a great night and will be back for more!

We go to HAMBRGR on a regular basis - generally the service is good and we rarely have issues with the food. This time the parm fries were literally swimming in grease - and the burgers/chicken on our sandwiches were both slightly overcooked.

Since HAMBRGR reopened - we have found that the food quality has not been good prior to renovations. Whether this is related to new staff, and or growing pains, it is difficult to say.

We will still give HAMBRGR another try.

Overall it was delicious food and a good experience. The patio music was a little loud and made conversation a bit difficult but it is a great outdoor space that they have.

I would say i was a little disappointed in the garlic Parmesan fries. Probably because I was expecting them to be coated in some kind of dry rub mix but instead it was regular fries with Parmesan shredded on top.

The KFC burger I got was DELICIOUS. And my husband loved his Maui Wowi burger too. The beers/drinks they offer are great as well! I will definitely be back.
