First visit. Pleasantly surprised because I expected a "burger joint" but this was far nicer with an imaginative menu for serving mostly burgers, as well as a couple other proteins. I would go back for a casual meal prior to a theater or other type of performance in the area, which is what brought us there last Saturday. I did find it a bit pricey for what was served however... our bill for 2 was over $70 before the tip and we each had only one cocktail. That will temper how often I go back, but I definitely will return.

Burgers were juicy and tasty. Shakes and floats were delicious.

I was very disappointed by this place. They somehow managed to get all of our orders wrong. Not to mention we waited over 35 minutes for our burgers to show up.
Burger were wildly over cooked, I asked mine to be medium, and it was 100% well done. My friend asked for the egg to come on the side of her burger and they didn't do that either.
My other friend asked for an egg for his salad and didn't get it. I asked for sweet potato fries and they put it on my friends order.. to top it all they forgot about my other friend's order of milkshake.
what a complete MESS.
The waiter was just unprofessional and we really did not have a good experience. Ate so many better burgers than this one - BBC, yard house, five guys, tasty burger and more.
Will not be coming back there.

Waitress was not good. Burgers came out over cooked and we actually had to bring the burgers inside (we were doing outside) manager did come out with the new burger, just not a great experience. Will not be going back.

After seeing this restaurant, which has locations in NYC, we were excited to try it. The burgers are large. That said, the quality was average. I had a Kale salad bowl with Tuna, which was nothing special. My family had the burgers which were not as good as what they had at Red Robin. Disappointed.

The decor was plain. The service was good.

We enjoy this place before concerts at Symphony Hall and it has become our tradition for lunch on Marathon Monday. Food and service always great.

Was here in Boston for my husbands conference. The food was good, but a bit overpriced given the quality. The burgers were huge, though! Overall a very good choice of restaurant!

Love at first bite. Didn't recall what i had ordered on my last visit, but as soon as I but into the burger I remember why we were back. Good drinks, GREAT burgers. We were late for our reservation but sat us quickly and got our food out quickly so we could make our show. Good food, good service, good times.
