Excellent burgers and service. Great location just off fountain square and less than a block from the streetcar.
Absolutely delicious! Can't wait to go again! Reserve ahead worked perfect
It took a while for the server to come by when I first got there, and although my server was friendly and helpful it took a while for me to get anything I asked for (which wasn't much). There was something that tasted off about their basic burger when it arrived and I ended up taking the cheese and bacon off the burger to try to fix that (which I never do). For a place that specializes in burgers I would have expected a lot more flavor from the meat, in particular. It's also a little odd that you can't switch out the fries that come with the burger for a side salad without ordering a (very large) salad separately.
We went out with some friends and we were seated promptly with our reservation. The drinks, apps and dinner were great.
Love having the option to sub chicken for a burger.
We didn’t have our drinks when our food arrived and our food was cold.
Great place food was hot and ready
Food was great; server friendly. It was a bit loud
Thank you for the review JCGO!
I've always loved Bru Burger for their beers and burgers, but was even more pleased with Bru Burger when I was planning a group dinner that included a vegan and a person with celiac disease. Bru Burger could accommodate them both easily -- with multiple options for them both!! That is such a rare thing to find. We all loved our meals and decided to hold our group meetings here from now on.
Thank you for the fantastic review Julie! We're glad everyone enjoyed their meals and we can't wait to see you all again!
The pear Cosmo is out of this world delish! You must try it. We had bourbon burger, black bean burger, patty melt and spicy fried chicken sandwiches- all very tasty. The spicy chicken was spicy! Everyone enjoyed their food.
Thanks for the great review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit!
Waited over an hour for a table.
Got a salad and was massive for a half size. Flavor was okay. Too much going on could not enjoy as taste buds were all over the place.
We went for lunch on a Saturday. Got there early and they sat us right away! The service was great and our waitress was great and gave awesome recommendations! Loved it and would definitely recommend!
We had such a wonderful time. It was a gorgeous night and we were very lucky to be sat outside for our meal. Our waitress, Ally, was so sweet and friendly, and honestly made our night. We both kept talking about how wonderful she was, and how grateful we were that she was taking care of us on our anniversary! We will definitely be back!
Was very good overall. Great food and service. Would recommend
Excellent service … charcuterie board was very good.
My burger was perfect! I asked for rare and actually got rare. This is a rare occurrence!- many places do medium when I ask for rare, so I was very pleased. And I love the pear Cosmo!
We were disappointed that there were no sweeter wines available on the menu.
Keith was great!!!
I was a little disappointed that I did not get to try the Black Bean Burger.
Our server was fantastic (went to Indiana state, 20, in college). we ate outside. Our food was sooo good. great innovative choices for burgers . There were many options for flavors plus your choice of beef, bison, turkey, chicken patty, and gluten free! There were many other appetizers and sandwiches that sounded amazing!
We had great service and great food. Burgers were excellent and everything was priced reasonably.
The experience was unlike anything I've had before, the drinks were amazing, the service was great and the food was phenomenal. 9/10 only because there were birds diving close to our heads on the outdoor seating.
Took my team there for a celebration and we enjoyed ourselves and the restaurant was following all COVID measures. The waitress was awesome. Will definitely recommend them.
Our server, Ally, was awesome!
Absolutely horrible!!!! Service was absolutely HORRIBLE!!! One of us ordered a drink from the bar. Server never delivered it and she had to get up and find the bartender to get it. Then we asked for 1 paper menu never brought it. Ordered our food. Two of us were going to share the onion rings but when food was delivered I decided to place an order for myself. When server asked was everything ok I told him I placed an order of onion rings and he rudly said I thought you were sharing. Kept passing our table snapping fingers. Had to ask for our checks, etc. This server was awful. We come here often but I think we will choose another establishment from now on.

Madi was our server. She did an excellent job of taking care of our many dietary needs. She was very accommodating and friendly.
Thank you for the 5 star review! We are happy to hear that Madi did a great job!!
Wonderful food and great bloody Marys. Best chili cheese fries!
Thank you for the great review! We're glad that you enjoyed the bloody mary and fries!
Great service and great food. Love the gluten free options
We had an early Mother’s Day lunch. Burgers were great and the cocktail I had was tasty!! We sat on the covered patio and it was very comfortable!
First date went well, going on a second
Food was very good. Drinks were good. Service was great too
I just thought the food was overpriced.
Food was very good
We're happy to hear you enjoyed the food, and hope to see you again!
Great burgers and lineup of local craft beers. Save room for the bread pudding or maybe just stop in for dessert.
The service was amazing!!!
Thanks for the 5 stars Kimberly!
The slaw and mac&cheese sadly ruined this whole meal. The dryness of both was sadly offensive. The presentation was beautiful, but the taste was a big NO! The burger and fries were fairly good. The waiter was the sweetest, he handled his handle. Unfortunately, I do not plan on returning again.
Out of towners looking for an easy, casual place to eat. Burgers were delicious. Service was very good. Happy we visited!
Great experience. Fast and friendly service
Good food, prices are okay. The beer on tap was good as well. The service was slow and had to ask for silverware, refills, etc multiple times before receiving it.
Food was very good, service was slow. The wait staff was busy and seemed to be working hard but inexperienced. We needed to ask for things several times.
They were out of a few things and wouldn’t allow my son to substitute a turkey burger fit his kids meal but overall yummy food & good experience!
