    This was mine and my husband's first time at Bru Burger in Evansville, the staff was very helpful and courteous, the service was exceptional, and the food was so good. We were able to cut down on wait time by reserving a table for 4, two days before arriving which helped us get in and seated quickly. My choice was the Stilton bleu cheese with pear-bacon jam, fried onion, truffle aioli, spinach, very good, my mouth is still watering. Great place, exceptional staff, we will return.

    I am so disappointed. We haven't been to Bru Burger since covid started, visiting from San Francisco. We brought our family to celebrate being together. I'm afraid the food was awful to inedible. What wasn't awful was the onion rings and the homemade ketchup. Please get it together.

    Great food and atmosphere. Employees were friendly and helpful. Burger was delicious and the bread pudding dessert is as advertised. I loved the setting in an old Greyhound building. It was also beautiful and clean inside. I recommend 100 percent and will definitely return if I am in the area again.

    Food was very good, but a bit over priced for a burger that doesn’t even come with a side item. The atmosphere is cool, inside of an old bus station. The high ceilings make for a lot of noise.

    Bru has great food and any time we come to Evansville we enjoy going. Once again the food was great but service… we just showed up, were not even seated and the waitress wanted to take our drink orders. We had two children, with coats on, and trying to get them situated and yet… the waitress taking our drink order was primary for her. Drinks came and instead of serving from the right, the waitress passed full glass tumblers over the heads of children and between adults. (Serve from the right please!) Food came and ALL the servers except one passed food over the heads of the children again and expected the adults to sort out the dinners. (Please walk around the table) The waitress would disappear for long periods of time too. Food great; service poor at best.

    We’ve eaten at bru burger several times and it was just not that good this time. It was very loud which made it difficult to order, I ended up with a different burger than I ordered but kept it to not make a fuss. The food was all okay. We went for a birthday dinner but I will probably make reservations at a different place for any future birthday celebrations. I made the reservation the night before but then the host called me the day of the reservation and asked if I was still coming, which was odd to me. I like that they check but the reservation was made less than 24 hours of her calling me.

    We were sat immediately but it took 15 minutes to be greeted by a server that wasn’t ours to get drinks. Drinks took forever to get to the table and our server had to be flagged down every time for refills. The food is mediocre. We will probably not return if we find ourselves in town again.

    Love bru burger Evansville. Fell in love 10 years ago at the mass Ave location. Life/Love brought me to Evansville and the one restaurant bright spot is bru burger! Please never change your chicken nachos. My only recommendation is to actually include the current rotating taps on a QR code. Given the current food service staffing shortage the knowledge of what’s on tap is suboptimal. Would be great to be able to see without relying on a conversation with the server who isn’t sure whether or not zombie dust is still the 3 Floyd’s rotating.

    I ordered the garlic three cheese burger and cloves of garlic were sandwiched between the buns. This might be how it was designed as a burger but I feel like it would be best to just mince them up and add them rather than have someone bite into a clove of garlic. Also, my fries were luke-warm and burnt. So I paid money for a meal that I had to pick the garlic out of and added $2 for fries that we not good. I have been to another BRU Burger Bar before and really enjoyed it so I had expectations coming in to the Evansville one and they were not met.

    BRU Burger Bar - EvansvilleResponded on October 1, 2021We are sorry to hear that you did not have a pleasant experience this time. We would love for you to come back and give us another try. Our Garlic burger is prepared that way in all of our restaurants, but your fries should of been hot and fresh. We hope to see you again soon so we can provide the best food and experience for you!
