This place is awesome! The staff were so friendly and helpful. I am allergic to gluten so they went through the menu with me,nothing was too much trouble and they even had gluten free beer! Lots of choice for coelics and most importantly the food was excellent!

In one of my experiences in this location of The Counter, I experienced a very hostile manager who I hope is not in employment in this establishment. I got the attention of a staff member to ask a question about my order who turned out to be the manager and/or owner. She was very abrasive and was just shy of... More

We visited here on Friday night at about 7pm with a friend, it was really just which was a good sign. We were seated fairly quickly and ordered some drinks while deciding on our burgers. The chap who served us could have been a lot friendly which is why I'm marking down to a four star. He was quite little... More

Amazing place with homemade totally up to you burgers. Being vegetarian is sometimes not easy to find nice options when it comes to burgers but this is amazing. They have the veggie burger which is tasty and you can combine with any of the ingredients they have on the menu. For the sides I would recommend onion rings or the... More

4 of us went to the counter last Saturday. They don't take reservations? Strange. And annoying when you want to go on a busy Saturday night but that's their policy. The food might not take so long if they did take reservations but I digress. When we arrived at about half 6 the waitress said the food would take about... More

I visited for the first time last week. The ability to create your own burger from the extensive pick and mix menu is brilliant. The quality of burgers is excellent and the shoe string fries too. The women bathrooms could do with some more regular cleaning and are quiet foul smelling.

I've been here a few times in the last year. Burgers are good but the wait staff were pretty unfriendly every time. Let's the place down, otherwise would get 5 stars.

Nice place, friendly staff and great burgers. Compared to other famous burger places, I would say better than Jo'Burger but still not at the level of Bunsen. Recommended! My suggestion is: try it but stay away if you are seriously starving because you'll have to wait at least 30 minutes before seeing your burgers!

The restaurant is located very central, food is very good, maybe a bit too special, because guests have the possibility to build their own burger. Too much information for my kind of liking, but quite interesting though. Staff is friendly.
