Amazing burgers and a wide variety of beers to choose from! It gets busy on the weekends but the wait isn't typically too long.

We stopped at Restaurant 55 on our way home from VA. We found it through Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed! The restaurant was very busy on a Thursday evening but we were seated within about 15 or 20 minutes. The service was excellent. We ordered burgers and they were very good. We also took home cupcakes and they were... More

Eaten here several times. Opens for lunch at 11; serves Lunch and dinner daily; CLOSED Mondays. Interesting décor; tables nicely spaced; good bar; homemade baked goods especially featuring their cupcakes. At lunch the menu is varied and they always offer specials of the day. Lunch tends to be less crowded and less noisy. They offer a wide variety of sandwiches... More

The burgers area amazing! The beer selection matches. The burgers are generally locally sourced so they may be out of some ingredients. Definitely could eat here a lot.

We have been loyal customers for years now. Friendly staff and yummy food each time we visit. Sometimes we decide what is for dinner when we see their specials board. It changes frequently. They recently updated the regular menu and Incorporated past specials.

We frequently dine here for a casaul meal. There hamburgers are made fresh and never overdone. It's nice to be able to substitute a salad for fries. Best yet, they have a great selection of craft beers.

They post new unique menu items on Facebook almost daily. They've never disappointed me, my family, nor my friends. Their customer service is top notch.

The food is very good. I've had the fish'n'chips and the salmon burger; but for the price, I much prefer to go next door to the Cool Springs Fish Bar. The "background" music at Restaurant 55 the times we were there is too loud to have any kind of conversation without shouting. The cupcakes were good (for cupcakes), but then... More

I have this place three tries. The bar is nice- but the good is super average and touted as terrific by locals. I found the hamburgers were just average. Service was the real Problem. The last time o was there we were obviously ignored by one server and finally a server came to us. We were made to feel like... More

We only ordered the burgers as that was the reason we were told to visit. I had the santa fe burger and it was excellent. My husband ordered the NFB burger which had sage sausage along with the beef. He is a burger fanatic and he says this is one of the best burgers he has ever tasted. The fries... More
