This is an AWESOME place! The staff was super and accommodating! We needed to sit outside due to my dad’s age, and they made that happen! The outside patio is awesome, shaded, and had a cool breeze. Our food was delicious, and our server and wait staff went above and beyond! The bar is so cool, and we will absolutely be back to sit there when it is cold. Very, very clean restaurant and bathrooms, as well! Must go here!!!

Due to state law we had to sit in tables of six and keep an empty table between each group... which was a challenge with 24 people, but they accomplished it with very little fuss! The place is neat, the food was very good, and the server was fun! Would definitely recommend!

Our son was jealous we didn’t take him with us for our anniversary dinner, so he didn’t hesitate to make it up to him. It’s always an enjoyable experience!

Bru is one of my favorite places to get staples that are always done right. We go often enough that I have tried most of the menu and have been impressed with the range and quality of options. The staff is generally very attentive and give recommendations if you ask.

The chicken wings with blue cheese dip are always hot, flavorful, and perfect to split with whoever you bring with you. The valencia salad with salmon is hands down the best salad I have ordered at any restaurant (ask for the salmon to be cooked medium-medium rare). If you opt for a burger, my faves are the honey chipotle bbq burger, blue cheese burger, or the bourbon burger. For dessert you can’t go wrong with the bread pudding.

Made a reservation and when we showed up and were given a table that was in a high traffic area by the entrance. When we tried to talking to patrons, there was lack of concern/hospitality

So glad Bru has decided to get back to normal. Service was great at this location. Food was exactly what we missed having. Atmosphere was honestly probably better at 50% capacity because it wasn’t overly crowded. Drinks were nice and outside seating was pleasant.

Great service! Arrived early evening on a Tuesday. Server was attentive without hovering. She took time to explain the appetizers and entrees. Good selection of beer with a variety of local and regional craft beers on tap that were delicious. Nice atmosphere, reuse of the historic bus terminal was well done. They kept enough of the historical character without compromising effectiveness of the restaurant. Actually a rather broad menu considering its all based around burgers. Food is excellent!!

Bru burger was good but it did not live up to the expectations. The patties were definitely frozen and were kind of expensive for a mediocre burger. Onion rings were phenomenal though! There’s also not a whole lot of room to move. Very crowded area. Was it worth trying, yes, will I go again, probably not.

It sometimes takes time to get a table, but I’ve not found a better place to get an amazing burger. I’ve also enjoyed everything I’ve tried that’s not on the burger menu!

This was our first visit to Bru Burger and it will not be our last. They had our table ready promptly at the time of our reservation. We were seated upstairs and it was very nice. I did notice that the noise level on the first floor was a bit loud, but it wasn't a problem on the second floor. The service was exceptional and the food was phenomenal and very reasonably priced. They have an extensive beer list and also some unique cocktails. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Amazing place to eat at. It was my wife and I’s first time eating there and we loved it. Food was delicious and drinks were great all for a reasonable price. To top it off the service was on top of it.

New Years Eve Dinner with friends -- had never eaten at Bru Burger, but will definitely be back!! We each had a different burger and shared; all were excellent. The onion rings are outstanding (if you like a lot of batter, which we do)...the fries were very good as well. The historic building was so cool to see....even on such a busy night, the noise level was not horrible...we could still easily have a conversation.

Got reservations, didn’t get seated at high table. Appetizers were cold, ran out of drink constantly.

After we left, I received an email about how I didn’t show up and how it affects the business.

Well, I did show up on time, told the hostess of reservation, they didn’t even look at it or confirm it.

Probably will not go back.

This seemed like a very slow day barely anyone was in the place. The New Yorker burger was okay. The real issue. I loved the burger but the Pastrami and garlic aoili were awful. The pretzel bites were good but the cheese and mustard sauces weren't. No New Yorker would approve of these. The Bru Margarita was delish and saved my meal. I ordered dessert to go so I hope it will be a great night cap. Not sure why this place won awards. Maybe it was what I chose. I'd go back for the drink so next time I'll try a different burger.
