I was at the restaurant dining with my family. The server took my credit card and never returned it to me. I get all the way to my home state to realize i dont have my card. I immediately called the restaurant and they told...me the server left it at the register. They never apologize for their negligence unbelievable. The servers should never be this negligent with anyone financial business.More

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant/bar. My husband and I both had the "create your own" chicken sandwich. The chicken was very tender and delicious. The ingredients are high quality with very nice size portions. The fries and tater tots were delicious sides....They have an extensive listing of craft beers and the wine was also high quality at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The owners came over to check on patrons which I thought was a great touch. Service was also very friendly, helpful and welcoming. A must try!More

Ordered with coworkers to try it out and change up out lunch places. We each ordered different variations of the pulled BBQ chicken sandwich. Flavor was good but there was NO sauce. The chicken was coated a bit but very dry. Well cooked, tasty, but...we all agreed it needed a cup of bbq sauce poured over before serving. Fries were good. Will try again, the menu seemed fun.More

We tried Gillerson's out before going to a show at the Paramount. The show was at 7 so we arrived at the restaurant at 5:30 thinking this should be plenty of time. We ordered an appetizer and drinks, which came out pretty quickly. But then...our server didn't come back for over 25 minutes to take our dinner order. By the time our food finally came out we had 10 minutes before we had to leave. My Mother-in-Law only had time to eat her salad and had to take her entire burger in a to-go box. I had to take half of mine in a box as well. The burgers and fries were excellent, however, so I would recommend this restaurant, just not if you have anywhere to be at a certain time!More

My husband and I decided to eat here after a concert. Lucky us because as soon as we walked in the door our server Zach informed us that the kitchen was only open for another 5 minutes but he would make sure we got food....We both ordered the O.G. Classic burger with cheddar cheese. The burgers were cooked exactly as we asked and I had the tater tots which were seasoned. A wonderful surprise was the house made ketchup! It's made with lime juice, brown sugar and tequila....YUM! They sell bottles of the ketchup as well. They also have a burger called the "Fire Fighters burger" in which they donate $2 from the cost of the burger to the Regional Fire Museum. Hat's off to them for that! Reasonably priced and would definitely recommend and return in the future.More

Five of us ate here before a performance at the nearby Paramount Theater. There were four adults and one child -- we all had something different from the menu and all loved our meals. The sweet potato fries that I had with my portabello burger...were perfect. We had cut our time a little close, but our server was very helpful in expediting everything.More

This place popped up on Groupon a couple weeks ago and looked interesting. Went tonight and we were very pleased with everything. My wife and I split a burger and the oodles of noodles along with a couple of drinks. Food was great, nice handcrafted...Bloody Mary for my wife, and a great selection of craft beer on tap and bottles/cans. Couldn't have had a better experience.More

Very good food that was tempered by fair service. It was a tad slow. Staff very friendly. Atmosphere really great. We will go back but to make it a regular the service will have to improve.
