Birthday lunch at 523 with Saganaki and crab cakes to start out, then we had gyros and the best burger ever created. Our second visit here and it surpassed the first. Thank you.

Great find for a late lunch. The weather was great so we enjoyed the outdoor seating. The food, refreshments and service were great. Great selection of both the food and refreshments (we were looking for cold beer).

Excellent customer service from the time you walk in until you get a come again on your way out. We had a male waiter ( can't remember his name so sorry) that was so personable and helpful with suggestions I wish he worked in a restaurant in my town. The food was cooked perfectly, the wine list extensive as is... More

Great place for a date night. The food choices are great and weve never had a bad lunch or dinner. Servers have been wonderful each time with no exceptions.

My wife & I needed a place to eat close to the Lerner Theatre in downtown Elkhart where we were seeing a play. We chose the 523 Tap and Grill which was just across the street and down a couple of blocks. We were very impressed & pleased. We were shown to a booth by the hostess which was outside... More

Try the Main Street burger. It is pretty awesome. Nice place right downtown with cloth table cloths and real plates. Kind of an upscale bar and grill. Prices aren't too bad for this type of place. Pretty diverse menu, and good service.

Great restaurant with interesting menu and great bar. Service can be a bit slow if busy but overall fine. Great stop if going to a show at Lerner Theater just down the street.

We were here on a Thursday evening, and it was pretty quiet. We chose to be seated outside, which was quite pleasant. The menu was rather limited, but the hamburgers were very good. They had a nice selection of droughtbeer. Our waitress was friendly and efficient.

We are from the area and love coming here to eat. The atmosphere is quaint and cozy - more of a date night experience than with family, but family is appropriate as well. Food is amazing and presentation is fun. This is a gem to Elkhart and nice to not have to travel far for a great steak. The Saganaki... More
