The food was great. The service was mediocre. The server was not very attentive and didn’t take time to listen closely. Overall we will definitely return.

Our server Zach (I think) was fantastic! From giving drink/meal suggestions to his top notch personality, he did a great job from start to finish. The reason I gave 4 stars rather than 5 was because it took quite some time for our food to come out. We had to have him check to see where it was because it took so long. Either way, I love the place. Great burgers, great drinks and great service ZACH!

Food was fantastic. This is my second visit and the food was great both times. They were not very busy but our server seemed to want us to finish up and leave. Within 30 seconds of finishing our food the server grabbed us our plates and handed us our bill. We planned on having another round of drinks but since we felt he was rushing us out we just had a beer someplace else.

Good burger, GREAT shrimp cocktail!! Service was attentive. Bacon left something to be deisred. IT was just chunks of pork belly. Not bacon like you would think for a burger. Burger was well cooked and juicy.

We love the burgers and the shrimp cocktail. It was unclear who our server was, and we were pretty ignored. Seating on mall window is unpleasant AND there’s no clear TV view in that direction. Also, the electronic checkout process was vague and the device was more or less tossed in our direction with no explanation.

The burgers were fantastic and the service was great! The only issue we had was that we were sitting near the door and there were a ton of people standing right next to our table waiting to be seated. It would have been better if the hostess asked them to wait in the mall for their table. Other than that I would go again - just ask to sit somewhere else.

My family and I visited Burger Study during Devour Indy. We had heard great reviews about the restaurant and wanted to try it for ourselves. We were very impressed by our experience! The restaurant staff was friendly and checked on us just enough throughout our meal. Our food was delicious and my husband told me that the Homecoming Burger was the best burger that he has had! Overall, it was a great experience and we will definitely be returning.

We went during Devour Indy so for a small up charge we were able to try some of the burgers like the prime burger that is usually pretty pricey. It was phenomenal. The atmosphere is more upscale than most burger joints but still comfortable for our group before a comedy show. Would recommend trying it out.

This was the second time I’ve been there and it will not be the last! My boyfriend and I were greeted by several pleasant ladies and then our server, Austin, took great care of us. He was helpful with explaining the menu and was extremely personable. The food— unbelievable. My mouth is watering just thinking of it. I loved the entire experience and my boyfriend was raving about it to his friends later. Five stars!

Food is okay. Service sucked. We had no utensils or napkins. When our starter was served, the runner who brought the onion rings to us walked off before we could ask for them. Then our server was MIA the whole time we had appetizers. We didn’t get napkins or utensils until long after our appetizer was gone and we had to flag down the server for something to eat with. It was kind of ridiculous. Food is fine. It’s good. But the irritating service problems aren’t enough to make up for the middle of the range food.
