The food was great. The service was a little slow but they explained there was a large table upstairs so we didn’t mind waiting. Will definitely go again!

Best burgers I’ve ever had. Perfectly cooked; bun was excellent (not too big relative to the burger); perfectly dressed…Just excellent!

We love 189. I have nothing bad to say so I will hype them up-the Spanish bombs are an amazing summer cocktail, I had 2 and I was feelin goood. I tried the Greek burger on black bean and it was ~full chef’s kiss~ my boyfriend tried the spicy BBQ burger & it was full of spice and everything nice. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather !

I have been going to 189 for their bourbon and burger night for quite awhile. Everything still very good but noticed the burger was very small this time and there was more bun than beef. I understand that with rising rates on beef maybe the customer should this or have the bun fit the burger? anyway always one of my favorite spots to go

Always enjoy 189 burger. We had a reservation but felt a bit rushed on this visit (never before). Other than that, it was again a great night!!!

Southwest salad - very fresh, chicken was exceptional. The dressing made in-house was also very yummy. We had a pinot Grigio but the spicy margarita kept calling lol and that was truly amazing! Little bit pricey but great food

Everything was great! I have dietary restrictions and there were options available or easily removed items to make it safe! Delicious food and drinks, great service, and we love the exposed beams and brick!

Food was excellent. Burgers were cooked perfectly. Service was okay. Our waitress wasn’t very fast with drinks. One person at our table asked for a second beer twice and had to reminded her to grab it. Not a huge deal. Noise was a bit loud but we were seated further back so it wasn’t a problem. Overall a good dinning experience.

It took an extremely long time to get our food. Once we did my burger was cold. I just ate it that way since the service was slow anyway. Drinks were expensive.

The bourbon onion burger is frankly the best burger you can find ANYWHERE in western NY. That burger is so good, I have dreams about it. The bourbon & whiskey selection is fantastic as well!
