    Loved the restaurant and the experience. The manager was charming and visited with us for a long time. The server was terrific and was very patiently training someone, but the music was so loud that it will make me wonder about going back. I realize that I'm a bit older than the average patron, but I think everyone wants to be able to talk without feeling they have to yell. Overall great otherwise.

    I have been here many times for business lunches and so had chosen this restaurant to take a newly hired colleague for lunch. First, he ordered a kale salad but was brought a salad with regular iceberg lettuce - our server went to find out what had happened and told us the kitchen ran out of kale and she wasn't aware. Why would the kitchen issue an alternative dish without asking if you want it? Then I had ordered the bash burger and my colleague the classic and two classics car out. There was an offer to fix but I am not going to have us eat separately whilst I wait for my food. Server said it was her mistake and offered us free dessert but we didn't have room for that so couldn't take advantage. Just a bit disappointing this time

    Chose this place because i was craving a good Bloody Mary and the BBQ Bacon Bloody definitely didn't dissapoint. One sip and I was in love but that wasn't even the best part. Even though they are most notable for the Bash Burger (which I had), my favorite item of the night was the Rigatoni "Mac" and Cheese. It may be a little offputting with the $14 price tag but definitely worth every single penny! So delicious each person at my table bought another one to go.

    If you're catching a film at the Angelica, it's perfect (across the street) as to location. But no matter what it has a lot of variety on the menu, and it all comes out looking and tasting much more than decent. The cocktails are great, the wine list is no slouch, and though I've no care for beer I'm sure their selection is favorable to those who prefer beer.

    The service was friendly and patient as one in our party was late. The pub style room was pleasant, however the music was very loud such that it was difficult to hear our own conversations. Food was tasty; frittata cooked properly, chicken and waffles well prepared, kale salad fresh, and fruit/yogurt plate balanced. Prices seemed a bit high and I felt the menu was somewhat limited. A perfectly acceptable lunch place, but I'd probably try something else next time I'm in the area.

    Food was above par...actually, very surprisingly good. We expected a tourist trap, but this place has great food, very fresh, and excellently prepared. The Bison Burger trio was amazing...the meat was tender and melted in your mouth; the prosciutto on the flatbread appetizer was of artisanal quality....however the flatbread was a tiny bit on the dry side. And the service was excellent as well, from our server to the hostess. We've been here numerous times, and based upon our experience tonight, we've made this place one of our favorites. Definitely recommend.

    ...always a hit! I have dined at B & B for over 2 years now and it has never failed to provide me an excellent dining experience. Whether it is lunch or dinner, the food & drinks are always outstanding. The service and the management also play a major part of making your experience just right. You always receive a warm greeting, the food is always perfect and the drinks seal the deal. I have recommended B & B to businesses, family and friends and many tell me they dined there and continue to come back. That just says it all. The place where first timers always become repeat diners.

    Went here for the burgers and it did not disappoint. We also had some small shared plates, which we enjoyed thoroughly and our friends ate from the very generous pre-fix. Absolute musts: Smash burger, fried cornish hen chicken, banana cream pie and the kale caesar salad. Best pickles EVER on our burger and I don't like pickles on my burgers normally! Music was a little loud but we were sitting by the speakers.

    EddyRoadVIP
    Dined on 6/22/2014
    Heard B&B had wonderful burgers. Mine was very disappointing. Got the signature BASH burger. The onion & bacon spread, together with a slather of melted American cheese on a soft bun made the burger a mushy mess----which I wouldn't have minded if it tasted good. I tried the burger without the bun and scraped off all the muck, but the beef alone was unsatisfying. Lacked flavor and was overcooked well beyond the medium-rare I ordered. Came with fries served in a VERY HOT metal cup, but the fries inside the cup were luke warm at best. Tasted as if they'd spent a lot of time under a heat lamp. Appetizerss were very good: chicken lollipops, tuna tartar, iceberg wedge with bleu cheese.

    The lamb burger was outstanding! I am looking forward to the next time I will be there eating a lamb burger!!! the lamb was topped with a taste of feta cheese, a little fried onions and aioli sauce. Sooooo goooood!!! We got there on a very rainy night. We found the first table too drafty and the hostess happily moved us. We came for an early dinner with a teenager. The atmosphere was just right !

    Food was nice although on the pricy side for what it was. Turnaround time between ordering and receiving food was incredible - although a little too fast, making us wonder if if had already been sat under heat lamps prior to us ordering. Other than that we enjoyed our experience.

    We got bash style burger that were really good but, unfortunately, the service was rather negligent with long waiting times and a messed-up food order. They took the wrong food order off our bill, and everyone seemed nice enough - so maybe they just had a bad day.

    I had a great time at dinner on Thursday. I am so glad that I made a reservation in advance. The restaurant was completely packed when I walked in, but I didn't have to wait for my table. Everything my date and I ordered was amazing, specifically the southern fried chicken and the pork ribeye with bok choy. I can't wait to come back and try the rest of the menu.

    I had the special Hemingway burger being made for a few weeks in April, and it was delicious. They did an excellent job recreating a recipe and creating spices that are no longer produced from scratch. The burger was cooked perfectly so that every bite was oozing with juicy goodness. The service was just as great as the food. I made a reservation for 2, only to find that a 3rd friend was showing up. The restaurant was packed, but the hostess was able to get an extra chair for us. The waiter was attentive: our water glasses were kept full, orders were taken quickly, and the food was served promptly. We also tried the cabernet sauvignon on draft, which was good & reasonably priced. I'll be going back sometime to try their normal menu.

    We had a great dinner at Burger and Barrel! I had the veggie burger which was very good. My BF had the classic burger had the classic burger which he loved and said that the meat was very well seasoned. The fries were also very good. My only real complaints were the music and service. Our server was "breathing down our necks" for a drink order before our butts even touched the chair but then disappeared for 20 minutes. The place wasn't crowded so I didn't understand her inattentiveness. She recommended a beer that they didn't have and then when we reordered didn't bring our drinks. We couldn't find her at all after we got our food and had to ask someone else for condiments and more drinks.
