Beinlich's has been around forever. The bergers are great. Try the shrimp and crabmeat salad. Some limited sandwiches. Outstanding bar. No deserts or coffee served. Just a great place or it wouldn't have been in business this long.

Had heard about this 1950 relic being a great retro place for lunch with the locals. Cute place, plenty of parking, great service, clean... but the food was not great. And it was really high-priced.

This place is a traditional very good place to go for lunch if you want a burger. Everything is good, the burgers, the coleslaw and the staff. I have NEVER had a bad experience and I go all the time.
