They started a new local deal, Half price burgers on Thursdays. Normally I wouldn't come since they are a little on the pricey end but can't go wrong with that deal. I got my favorite, Downie street burger (bacon, cheddar, onion rings and chipotle mayo)....More

We dined here with another couple on a cold rainy Saturday. Our server, Ellen, provided friendly and attentive service. The food was hot and tasty. The beer was cold and tasty. Everything about our dining experience was awesome. We will definitely be back!!

We tried this place our first night in Stratford, after reading reviews and the menu. As a lacto/ovo vegetarian, I check places out . My husband is a picky carnivore. I decided before we got there to have a modified “Dirty Burger” with peanut butter...More

We recently ate at Downie Street Burgers. It was recommended by the people at our Hotel. It was an AWFUL experience. It started out by our noticing that our waitress was ill. We asked that someone else serve us ( The waitress acknowledged that she...More

A beautiful day in Stratford so we just ordered a wrap and salad and sat on a park bench soaking up the warmth of the sun. The wrap was certainly different but good and the salad very fresh and delicious.
