The first time a group of six of us dad been together in months. We were generally disappointed. The food was not prepared as ordered. The server was not over worked, but slow to respond. Example: asked for salt and pepper as the food was delivered....she brought it with the check. No lie.

The restaurant was so loud, we could not hear each other speak and I am not sure why. It was a Saturday night, but not packed.

Not the usual Cunningham Restaurant Group experience. Well below.

First visit to any of the Bru Burger locations so was uncertain as to what to expect. I had the Bourbon Burger, my wife had the Lamb Burger and we both had onion rings and the pretzel appitiser. The cheese and spicy mustard dips for the pretzels were bot very tasty and had just the right amount of spices to let you know they were there but were not overpowering. The Bourbon burger was cooked perfectly and was very flavorful as was the Lamb burger. The onion wrings were large and not greasy tasting. The service was very good, our waiter took good care of us even as the number of diners continued to grow. We would return.

We frequent Bru Burger Carmel. The food is incredible, always delicious, and the service is amazing (every time). We especially love having Matt as our server! It's easy to get to, parking is always available, the bartenders get creative with drinks, and make us feel at home. We are a theatre, and on opening nights, we hold our cast parties at Bru. They are great at handling large numbers and keeping everything flowing smoothly. There is not a bad item on the menu. Everything is delicious, and cooked to order. Special mention to the onion rings, and all the dips! We'll continue to go to Bru as long as it's standing!

Their burgers were great. The restaurant was busy, but the service was great. Didn't get to see the outdoor patio, but with that there was plenty of seating.

It was average.

Service was a little slow too.

The Lambburger has olives on a feta arelish but the menu didn’t say that. I was expecting more of a tzadziki. That would have been much better.

Bruburger has been better in the past. I don’t know if I’ll return.

We had a lovely table outside, great service. As we were with visiting relatives its was nice to be able to sit and eat and yet visit with them. We were not rushed at all, intact probably overstayed our welcome but nothing was ever said to us about leaving.
Thank you!

When you go there you need to bring ear protection. The food is great, the service is excellent, but the noise level is so high you need to yell at your friends in order to be heard.

Have always loved BRU burger and Cunningham restaurants. However, our experience tonight was subpar. Food was bland, server spilled water all over our table and never returned to wipe it up, only 1 person out of 4 was given silverware, and the manager came by to ask how everything was and walked away before we could even respond. Did she even care or were we just being checked off her list?

Love all the different burger and sandwich options here. So many creative pairings and ingredients. Fries are absolutely delicious and would highly recommend the bread pudding!

I had a wonderful dining experience during my most resent visit at Bru Burger! From the moment I was welcomed upon entering the great staff service, quality of food to my departure; I was thanked for coming in and was invited to come back. I have come to think that is Cunningham’s standard. (High standards)

Was so looking forward to eating for the first time at Bru Burger with a friend of mine. The food was enjoyable but what was disappointing was our server. She wasn’t that friendly at all. But all in all I would definitely try Bru Burger again.

I've been to the Bru Burger downtown and this location is at best a poor imitation. The food is substantially similar, but the service was truly atrocious. We never received appetizers that we ordered and only got our main course twenty minutes after tables that had been seated after us received their food.

The burgers were good and the onion rings were delicious. They make their own ketchup I believe and it was good, but the texture was different than tradition smooth homogenized ketchup. It was more like a marinara sauce in texture. The staff was friendly and the service was really good.

The food was fantastic as it was the last time I went to Bru Burger downtown area! Our server Ed or Eddie I don't recall which name he told us but he was fantastic as well! Very very customer service! Best Mother's Day my mother has had in a very very long time! We lost my father in December and they were married 63 years and she's having a tough time with it so to take her to a place that treated her like aqueen was fantastic! Thank you thank you thank you

Had lunch with colleagues and tried the vegan Impossible burger; surprisingly good! The fries are always fantastic, and I shared a gorgonzola berry salad that was fresh, crisp, and quite tasty. My co-workers had burgers and fries - always a good choice. Service was great and the noise level was moderate - easy to hold a conversation. Great place for a work lunch!

Eat here often but this visit was not good. Service was horrible with long wait times to take orders (and get your drinks) and observed the table next to us having issue after issue with their food. Our food quality and taste did not measure up to our previous visits - obviously something has changed.

MY HUSBAND AND I TOOK OUR SON OUT FOR DINNER. OUR WAITRESS WAS GREAT, AMBIANCE WAS GOOD AND IT WASN'T LOUD. MY HUSBAND AND I BOTH ORDERED SALADS AND MY SON GOT A BURGER. EVEN THOUGH WE DIDN'T HAVE A BURGER OUR SON SAID IT WAS THE BEST HE'S EVER HAD, AND WE'VE EATEN AT A LOT OF BURGER PLACES. THE SALADS WERE EXCELLENT AND SUPER FRESH. ALTHOUGH IT WAS PRICEY. OUR BILL WAS $103.00 BUT THAT WAS BECAUSE WE HAD 8 COCKTAILS BETWEEN THE 3 OF US. LOL WE'LL BE GOING BACK SOON.
