We set our standards to old world expectations. Bringing it back to a simpler time — we grind our meats in house every day, blend them into burgers and sausages, and then serve them with craft beer and spirits.

We went here during Blink. The service was slow but that was to be expected during a busy night. But 45 min to get a couple orders of fries and 2 sausages seemed a bit much. The server was apologetic and pleasant. The food was decent, not a wow, but good for the style of food. It’s a casual place where I could see a group going to have a few drinks and some snacks or a quick meal. I can’t speak to the burgers but the Lincolnshire sausage was herb-y like it was supposed to be. I will say the sausage tasted more like oregano instead of sage which is the traditional Lincolnshire. In any event, I believe if you enjoy a casual place in OTR and are looking for burgers, fries, sausage, and beer this could be a decent place to go.

Food was excellent. They comped an appetizer because they thought our food was taking too long which was nice and the meatball was delicious.

Best chili and harvest salad! Yum! It was a busy night because of Blink, so service was a bit slow and not as attentive as other times I’ve been there. Reasonable prices and great food! Expect to sit pretty close to table next to you - it’s a small establishment.

Food is consistently good every time we've been there. This particular night was extremely busy but we had a reservation and they seated us right away. Kitchen was backed up but appetizers didn't take long. Our server and a manager kept checking on us and apologizing for the delay in getting our entrees. We were in no hurry but we really appreciated them keeping us updated. And the food was great!

Great food and service was amazing. I like the location and quick turn-around for food. There is also plenty of cocktails one can order. The only think I found a bit odd is there are absolutely no desserts. Not even a piece of pie. I think this is the first restaurant I’ve been to with no sweets.

Really small menu but enough variety for a vegetarian and a salad lover to be good to go eating with the burger lovers ( what they do here). Really excellent service- high on personal attention meter! Food slow coming out after ordering. Big group beat us to the punch

Good gourmet burgers. Very good sides. Nice bet selection. For the emphasis on burgers, thought there would be more topping choices

We had a fantastic time! Loved the food, our waiter was awesome, it appeared that the clientele were having fun, also. I look forward to going back to try other items on the menu and to sit outside. Great place for a casual, fun evening.

Service was excellent!
The kitchen was slow with our food, which has happened both times I've visited this restaurant.
Drinks were great, and the food was as well.

Krueger's is always a solid "go-to" for me. Their Kale Salad is THE best in the city (Typically, I don't even like Kale). It comes with a lemon vinaigrette, fresh parmesan cheese and crushed croutons. Their Krueger's burger is ALWAYS a solid go to in addition to their fries and asparagus. The rooftop is the best part!

I've been to Kreuger's a handful of times, and have never had a bad experience. This was my first time making a reservation. The table was ready on time, the food was as good as always, the noise level was vibrant but not preventing conversation, and I will continue to frequent their establishment.

We had the perfect evening on the first cool day in a while, so an earlier dinner on the rooftop with fabulous breezes was such a welcome change! Add to that ambiance, we had a fabulous meal where everyone loved their meals, a super-fun waiter, and fabulous service overall. Can’t wait to go back!

Food was great and restaurant scene was very fun. Staff though was very aloof (like they couldn’t be bothered with our party) so over all could only give this spot a 3 star rating.

Food is good and reasonably priced. Rooftop outdoor area is really too small.... it’s unrealistic to think you’ll be able to snag a table there- even though that’s why we came... and requested it on our reservation form. Noise level is deafening. We could barely hear our small table of four talk among ourselves! Stairs to 2nd floor are steep... and when we started up, apparently someone had just dropped a burger/fries dinner. The hostess just kicked a few fries aside and kept us walking up!!! A lawsuit begging to happen! Probably won’t go back.... but the burgers still deserve 5 stars!

As always, the food was delicious! I was disappointed because after specifically requesting the rooftop for a special occasion, we were told when we got there that it had just been fully seated! Other than eating downstairs on a lovely evening, it was great...

Loved the outdoor seating and the food was delicious! Not impressed with service! Felt rushed! In addition, I had mentioned in reservation it was for a special occasion. Server did not ask or acknowledge what special event we were celebrating.

The location and atmosphere is great, nice open patio and big garage door in back! I felt that the service could have been better (my server was Prince, and he seemed a little busy and not as attentive as I would have liked during the lunch rush), and the food was okay (similar to Bru burger but not quite to that level). May consider coming back for beers or drinks.

Krueger's is perfect for a casual lunch or dinner, and drinks. Especially if you can get a table on the second floor patio, it's a great jumping off point for a day or night in OTR.

We had never been here before but heard it was amazing and it was! Our server was Nick and he was incredible! He was quick and knew the menu well - it was pretty busy but he never seemed overwhelmed. The only downside was I ordered the Bleu cheese burger but there was so much onion jam on it that I only tasted the Bleu cheese in one bite - so next time I will order the onion jam on the side. Otherwise, it was amazing and we will be back!
