    Posted up for a solid burger and some good calamari in November, so I didn't have the al fresco dining experience. Good tap selection and the girls were all cute and very nice in their service.

    Eggplant burger is great. Mango rumerita is great. Awesome fries. Great time and price. But... Don't sit under the awning when it rains. They may or may not roll it up and dump a waterfall on you.

    Don't miss the mural on the wall of this old bank-turned-restaurant. Most of the people depicted are well known residents of Burlington long ago.

    Buffalo Wings were really tasty but not really Buffalo. Medium rare burger came really rare and they forgot the bacon. Waitress was good and gave a little discount.

    We didn't arrive until 8pm on a Thursday and service was very slow. Server was pretty inattentive as well and didn't seem to care much about the customer's experience

    I tried going there with my wife for lunch today and after being sat in the quiet area of the dinning room we were ignored. 15 minutes and nothing.

    Burgers, late night. The fact they will serve you food right until the last minute the kitchen is open no questions asked... Servers are hot.
