We went to this place after a friend raved about it to us. Well, my friend was NOT wrong. We walked in and seated right away by a friendly host. The rustic but modern decor was nicely done. I wish I could remember my servers name because she was very cheery and provided such great service. The chicken quesadilla was... More

Went here for dinner while we were in the area. There were a couple of items other than burgers on the menu, but burgers was what we went for. The burgers were generous (8 ounces), and came with a wide array of toppings. I thoroughly enjoyed the brie burger, while my husband had the Hawaiian burger. The Burger Bar also... More

We just drove in from Brookfield and we're starving. Found Haywire and looked it out on Trip Advisor. Glad I listened to the reviews. Really delicious and tasty hamburgers. So many types to choose from or create your own. Service was also outstanding. Wished we lived closer so we can go more often!

Stopped in here twice for dinner early in the summer, both times it was after the busiest dinner hours and I sat at a table in the bar area. The menu is varied and on both occasions the food was very good, the burgers are delicious and the sides well prepared. However, on both visits although the restaurant was not... More

This place is pretty consistent. Food looks and smells good. I had a chopped salad and a friend had the same. The bill came to $34.03! For shredded lettuce with chicken and two waters, that's a bit expensive. The gentlemen in the booth were speaking loudly and for some reason, there were two or three flies and a few gnats... More

We were sent to this popular place by our hosts at Harry's Marina. We loved everything, especially the imaginative burger varieties. LOVED our server, and the service was excellent. The appetizers (we had fried pickles) and sides (sweet potato fries, onion rings) are delicious and generously proportioned.

Came in for a quick but, never had a bad meal here and the service has been excellent each time. The burgers are big and thick with many choices of toppings. Nice bar area and also an area for families with children.

I am not usually a burger eater, but Haywire make the best burgers on the Shoreline, bar none in my opinion! They have so many different varieties, or are able to make whatever you want. Always busy and can understand why! If you haven't been, go!

The food was very delicious and the staff was very friendly. The food came out very quickly. I highly recommend the Spinach artichoke dip. The Haywire is a perfect little Place for families. We sat outside and enjoyed the gorgeous weather and atmosphere.

Thank daybout
