Love the USA? Missing the vibe? Go to Varsity. By far the best burgers around. Sport TVs all around. Staff are all happy Charlie's. The brioche bun - yum. The patties, oh so good. The fries. Crispy as. The Devils Wings ... unmissable and blow-your-socks off HOT. Go Sunday for $5 PBRs Go Tuesday for Wings night Go Weekdays for... More

The food here is delicious, we'd never been and both ordered burgers which were delicious!! The chips were average but that cheese whip sauce was to die for. Good selection of drinks and really friendly staff. We also got to watch a chicken wing challenge which was a real laugh. Great place, very cool vibe but I probably wouldn't bring... More

Had not been before so decided to give it a go. It's an American burger bar, loud music, pool tables, tv's with boxing cricket or grid iron on. Birthday boy, myself and one of our daughters arrived ahead of the rest of the others. So we thought we would have a side dish while waiting. Wow we had the deep... More

When we were being taken somewhere almost as a surprise for dinner, I was relieved to find it was at a burger bar! I was a little nervous about the chances of cross contamination, but was taking the risk anyway. When I went up to place my order the guy behind the bar didn't seem to either understand what I...

American style bar, though more North American as there Canadian style food like poutine (not as good as the real thing though). Wide range of local and international beer. Big range of burgers and sides. Very busy and pretty noisy. Hidden away inside the shopping complex.

We had 4 buckets of 30wings each. The hot sauce ones were so flavorful. Highly recommended. Mind you, they are pretty small in size so 30wings a bucket ain't that much actually.☺️ Their Presley burger 🍔 was overrated. It tasted dry. Their beers were good. In summary, just got for their wings promotions on Tuesday and have them with beers!... More

Stopped by on Sunday to try their burgers as I had heard lots about them. Place was busy because of the NRL final but still managed to get a table. Loved their $5 pints of Blue Ribbon, $5 pints is a bonus! Burgers came out quick and wow, best burger I've had for a long time, took me back to... More

This is about as close to an American sports bar as it comes in Perth. Great selection of beers and spirits and the wings worth the visit no matter how far you have to travel. People watching is also great in this place..... FYI - Varsity are also opening another bar in the old Waterford Tavern in the next month... More

My colleagues and I had lunch at Varsity Bar yesterday to farewell a colleague. The staff were great, were able to accommodate our table of 8 easily (we booked shortly before arriving), were helpful and courteous. The atmosphere is great, supported by great staff attitudes. The food was plentiful and delicious, and I'm glad I took their advice and didn't... More

My partner and I met here by recommendation actually, we had a great night! The atmosphere was amazing as everyone in the bar seemed to be having a great time. Although we didn't eat anything other than some fries the other meals looked awesome, like they put in alot of effort for presentation. The ping pong tables are always on... More
