Poor service from our waitress. Kitchen was slow. Our waitress never checked on whether or not we enjoyed our appetizer. Never offered us another drink. Checked with us as our burger was delivered and never seen her again until she brought our check.
This was our second time at the restaurant, both times service wasn’t good but food was excellent.

The food took a very long time to come out, we thought our appetizer and burgers would come out at the same time it took so long. Oh no, because they ran out of stuff we ordered so they told us that after we ate our appetizer and then it took longer for our entree and they weren’t as good as it usually is. Server was great, kitchen and food not so much

Great burgers! Waitress wasn’t great but not bad either. I’m not sure how many tables she had but my glass was empty for a bit. Cool place with Other places around to stop after dinner.

We really enjoyed our dinner at 189. We split the beef on weck egg rolls & a Caesar salad for appetizers and then each had a burger (one 189 Burger and one All American Burger) for dinner. Service was prompt and friendly!

The outdoor area was great! Lights, and overall ambiance was so nice. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was awesome! The beef on weck egg rolls are simply the best. My only complaint is that there were too many flies.

This is our second time in a month. LOVE it! The ambiance and staff are awesome. They have the best burgers I have had bar none! The beef on wick apps are also outstanding as are their load fries. I can't say enough about this burger place in East Aurora. It is a must even more so if you are a Bourbon lover!

Had an incredible dinner at 189 Burger. We loved it when it was 189 Public House and the updates do NOT disappoint! Following COVID-19 protocols wonderfully. Excellent bourbon selection, Basket of Bacon appetizer is life. Our waitress was wonderful and our burgers were delicious. Highly recommend!

The burgers here are of very good quality. They came out just as we ordered them. For an appetizer we shared the bacon basket. We should have ordered two - it was very good. If you want a very good burger I would recommend 189.

A+ on the food and overall feel of the place. We ate outside and the flys/bees/bugs were unbearable. It really made the experience outside poor. The service could have been better as well. Overall we would give it another shot as the food was great!

The outdoor seating was all in the sun, no shade. We went inside and had to sit at a high top table. The waitstaff was not very knowledgeable of the menu. It took way to long for our order to come but the burgers were very good.

Outdoor dining. Reservation was botched by computer system but hostess sat us promptly. Outdoor seating area was nice with the exception of a serious fly problem which really ruined the experience. Food was decent but definitely not as good as we’ve had here in the past.
