Amazing service with a great happy hour! All of the bartenders are above friendly and love to chat. Avoid the oceanfront hotel bars and come out here and get great craft beer and an excellent selection of specialty burgers. Highly recommend the fried pimento cheese with fried pickles and the Mexicali burger with a Two Hearted beer.
We went last night. The service is slow, I definitely enjoy a relaxed environment but this was too much and the food was not worth the wait. We weren't asked how we wanted our burgers cooked, and that is a bad sign. What we ended up with was overcooked, dry, gray meat. It seems like they are precooked and then reheated, definitely took away from the quality of meat they are promoting on the menu. The fries were also overcooked and over-salted. The buns were not the right type of bread for the burger, and they were stale. We also had the kale chips, which I was excited for but again disappointed because they were over-fried and basically turned to dust. The concept is great but because ALL the food was overcooked we will not be back and for the lack of good customer service.
SO SO good. Husband got an amazing burger, I got the Hawaiian with grilled chicken, which was even better than his burger. Daughter got chicken tenders that were out of this world! We went right at 5pm on a Saturday and it wasn't busy. Sad we visited on our last night in town. We will DEFINITELY make this a staple in our VB vacations, most likely more than a couple times.
I never been to craft Burger Bar before until recently. I found the wait staff friendly and they had great suggestions on the food items I should try or that they recommended. The atmosphere is nice and of the beach vibe. I ended up getting a burger with a few substitutes that water based off of my waitresses suggestions. It was the pepper jelly burger with pepper jack cheese and added bacon. It was delicious! The only downside was when the burger arrived there were a side of kale chips where I was expecting french fries. This was easily rectified by wondering a side of fries as I'm not a fan of dehydrated kale. I wish I had known in advance so that I could have ordered french fries along with my burger.
The burgers here are pretty good, we’ve eaten here quite a few times and have never had bad food. The service is another story. We like to sit in the bar on Saturday nights and the girl that bar tends is THE WORST! She never actually does anything for us, a man that I’m assuming is some type of management does all the work. She’s very busy yelling about her boyfriend making her mad and then doing probably super important business on her phone. Same for the girl working as hostess. She also has a lot of very important business to do on her phone. We also got to witness two of the servers fight over tables, which was pretty cool. So if you like pretty good burgers and people doing important work on their phones then this place will be your jam.
