The Impossible burger is amazing, seasoned to perfection. The onion rings are sooo good. Best I've had in a long time!!! Overall, it was a great dining experience and I'm looking forward to returning.

The food was great and this was my second time dining at this restaurant. I came back because I had such a wonderful experience the 1st time and I wanted to share that with my sister. Unfortunately the 2nd visit was not so good. The waiter was a little aloof and was spending more time behind the bar making drinks than waiting on us. We were seated at the high tops across from the bar, so I don’t know if he was doing double duty. I noticed another table next to us (with the same waiter) was waiting a long time for their food and they got up and complained to the hostess and then magically she produced their food in seconds. So obviously it was sitting in the kitchen waiting to be taken out. The next time I go, I am going to specifically ask to be seated elsewhere.

Always enjoy the Gorgonberry Pecan salad. The french fries could have been a little crispier. Our nephew really liked the Double Bacon Burger.

We went during Restaurant Week. We ordered hamburgers and my husband ordered chili. Asked for chili to be served before burgers. We waited for 25+ minutes and no chili. Server apologized and said chili would be out soon. It came with burgers. We were disappointed because we had not been to a restaurant in a very long time due to COVID-19.

Waited an hour for food after we ordered.
They blamed it on too many carry out orders.
Not what I wanted to hear.
We left.

My first visit to Bru Burger Bar will not be my last! We wanted to go someplace new (to us) for lunch to celebrate Restaurant Week. GREAT choice! Normie, our server, was friendly, cordial, gracious and efficient. As full as we were (we took half home), we ordered white chocolate peach bread pudding for dessert to share! My friend got the bourbon burger, I got the salmon. Both were wonderful. The iced tea was the best I've ever had! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Bru Burger.

Had great service and food was great as well!! We ordered pork nachos to start and we all (5 of us) ordered burgers. They were all cooked correctly and everyone said their food was delicious. Homemade ketchup was a big hit. Would definitely recommend!

The atmosphere is amazing. Cozy and modern. I love that they have a 2nd level. I would love to go back during the summer to check out the patio. The food was good and there were several vegetarian options to choose from. Service was great and quick. Great beer selection. The restaurant did a great job at implementing Covid precautions.

Didn’t matter that I made a reservation - informed upon arrival 10-20 min wait.

Drink price expensive!

Food portion for chicken sandwich lacked chicken!! Put some damn meat on the bun!

Service was excellent but the food was not impressive. The house made ketchup was so bad no one at our table liked it. The fountain drinks were not carbonated and we needed to request need ones. My teenage daughter even said we should have gone to McDonalds. Yikes! It was that bad.

We wanted to try this burger place for a couple of years. The salad my wife ordered was terrible and she could not finish it. The bison burger I ordered was greasy and not good! I could of done better at Wendy’s! They did not charge for the salad which was the appropriate thing to do. At least the cocktails were good! We will not be returning and would recommend to our friends not to eat at this establishment.
