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.

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.

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.

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 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!

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!

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.

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.
