Great food, great service! I’d love to keep coming here on the patio with my friends. If there was any way to get a heater by the tables on patio, we could extend our outings into the cooler weather. If not, I’ll still get takeout for myself.

This is our favorite spot. The food is always amazing. We had burgers (both cooke perfectly) and the fries were fresh and hot. Do yourself a favor and get the garlic mayo for dipping - perfection.

Seated very quickly, food was out fairly fast but was very salty, service was friendly and attentive. Wish food was better both my onion rings and steak sandwich tasted like I was eating salt.

Delicious, large burger. Fries were good but could have been crispier. Server was friendly and appropriately attentive. Acoustics could be better. Overall, very happy with the visit!

It’s Covid, and it was a rainy day, so the restaurant was dim, sparse and quiet. But I can imagine it with a crowd at the bar and Our waitress was awesome,

Had great service, seated immediately, waitress was very attentive. Delicious mimosas and the crab cakes with hollandaise were definitely on point I absolutely love a crab cake with little to no filler....

Will be returning soon, and will highly recommend to anyone looking for a good brunch spot

For the first time since Burning Buffalo opened I didn't;t order a burger!! Ordered the fish fry and was not disappointed. Fish was moist and plentiful. Their fries are just delicious and the cole slaw was very good. They didn't skimp on the tarter cause, which seems to be a trend now a days. Excellent!!

Went for brunch on Sunday during social distancing. Awkward having to look the menu up on our phones but the real problem was the noise level. Even half full we could barely hear our server or each other at our table. Meals were good but some minor missteps like over salted frittata. The bloody Mary’s were fantastic tho - and I generally don’t even like them!

During phase 3 we were fortunate we thought to get an outside table. Groups of six were leaving and congregating next to us removing face masks/ sanitizing hands/ hanging out / talking/ laughing/ having fun / but get away from me already!
Friendly / timely waitress.
