Bru was great on Saturday! We remembered to make a reservation which worked out great. We were seated outside, but the patio is blocked off and stays warm and quiet. Food and service were great!

The food is great and it seems like a great place to hang out. What I didn't like is that I felt like they were trying to push us out the door the second we got there. Definitely would've liked better rush-hour management.

The food is not as good as it is in Indy. The nachos weren’t great and the bun was way bigger than my burger/ too much bun. We asked for ketchup when they brought our food. No one ever brought it. I had to get up and ask a hostess for it. Food wasn’t hot when we finally got the ketchup.

We had a wonderful experience at Bru Burger. We were seated immediately. It is a beautiful restaurant. Our server (I wish I remembered her name!) was very sweet and accommodating. One member of our party has some food sensitivities. When she asked some questions, Seth, the manager came out to our table and put our minds at ease about meeting her needs. Fantastic service! The food was delicious! We will definitely return.

Disappointing. I have dined at the Indy locations of Bru Burger and am always pleased. The burger was not flavorful and it was drowning in the herbed goat cheese/garlic aoli. I scraped it off to just eat the burger, but it lacked all seasoning was quite bland. It was obvious that I was not eating it but the server just cleared my plate and asked me if I wanted to buy dessert.

We decided on dinner after taking our college students to move in. The restaurant was very busy and it took 15 minutes to be seated after we arrived. Thankfully the food improved our perception. The Chipotle Mac and Cheese appetizer was delicious. The burgers we tried were very good and we would return to try something different. Richard was an attentive server.

The hostess told us we would have a 45 minutes wait even though we had a reservation. She told the same thing to the next people who had no reservation.
Then when we got in in 5 minutes she was bitter so tried to seat us next to the kitchen when there were multiple open tables away from the kitchen. Fire her. Snotty hostesses and wait staff should never be allowed.

The food is good. I got to try 2 different sandwiches: a burger that was excellent, and and the spicy chicken one - also fantastic. Waitress was a little stoic, but she got us our stuff. Beer selection is "meh" considering the local and regional beers available is through the roof. But that's the problem with a chain: they don't know nuffin' 'bout local beers, and some big wig in LA thinks he/she can tell all franchises which beers to get. Sigh. A problem that dates back to the 1980s at the dawn of craft beer. When will people learn?

Hi Bill! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I'm happy that our burgers rocked! I am concerned that you weren't made aware of all the great local beers we have to offer. You see, we are part of Cunningham Restaurant Group, out of Indianapolis. We do have 10 Bru Burger locations, but not quite a chain and definitely not a franchise. We do keep a couple domestics to please the crowds, but 9 of our 16 taps are Indiana beers. We love local beer and I hope you'll be back to try some!

When you reserve online it gives you the option to reserve a table outside or inside. We reserved outside, but when we got there they told us the system can't actually reserve outside dining. So despite having a reservation, we ended up on the wait list for 35 minutes to get the table we'd reserved. And to cap it off they listed me as a no-show on the reservation I'd made, so that I couldn't leave a review, forcing me to go back five months to a previous reservation.

The manager needs to figure out how to remove outdoor seating as a reservation option. In the Covid era this actually matters, and to bait-and-switch people with a supposed outdoor reservation that doesn't exist is simply unacceptable.

Not many places in this class of restaurant are open on a Sunday night in Lafayette, so BRU Burger does a brisk business. Our table was ready right on time, food was good, service was timely.
