With burgers in the name I would have expected them to be exceptional.... they "read" well on the menu but were very mediocre, rather small and for almost 15 dollars a disappointment. We were in a party of six and ordered 5 different varieties so we gave them a real shot. Everyone ordered the burgers cooked to medium but one... More

We had a party of 8 so we called ahead and only had to wait about 15 minutes which was good for this restaurant because of its popularity. Very large dining area and it was packed the night we were there. Liked the decor that had some older touches but still modern. Our Server was a little hard to understand... More

This was our lunch choice and we both liked our food. My husband had a burger and I had the fish tacos. Good iced Cute spot, high top tables in the bar and the bar is quite lovely. Attentive service.

This place offers nice ambience and some truly refreshing flavors. Mussels were top notch, coming in several tasty options. The burger I tooks was perfectly made. The place also offers not-so-common delicacies like foie gras, truffle fries, chevre fig salad, or fantastic duck fat fingerling potatoes with herbs.

I've been to Mussel and Burger Bar twice, and both times, I have eaten a burger that I very much enjoyed. I've eaten both the Spanish Blue and the Italian Job (and I have sampled the Cubano and the C.E.O. with foie gras). The Spanish Blue burger was definitely a solid choice, but many of the flavors and the toppings... More

Burgers were good... nothing spectacular. Mussels we just ok. Very small and the sauce was just not seasoned well. This was a big disappointment for my wife and I. We had a $50 gift card and went for lunch. We did not get adult beverages and no dessert and the bill was over $60. We won't be back. The service... More

This is a unique restaurant and menu. We were on a tight schedule so we ordered a burger. My cheeseburger was cooked to perfection. The smoked pineapple sauce for the sweet potato fries was ok, would change on next visit. The staff was absolutely top shelf. We had a mistake on one of our meals and one was well under... More

Mussels were absolutely amazing. There are two things they do very very well...yes,you guessed what that is. Ordered several kinds of mussles and even shared a few burgers. This place did not disappoint. Everything was good... Highly recommend!

Was staying at a nearby hotel and ate here on a whim. Muscles were good. Plenty of good broth and nice bread for dipping The burger was good as well, seasoned and moist, but lots of toppings and fell apart fast. Server was very friendly. Pepsi no coke, that's the biggest down side Beers were served in jars, this can... More
