Went to celebrate my 30th anniversary with my husband. We were really looking forward to having the seafood burger. We were seated immediately and they were not very busy. We waited for 10 minutes to be greeted, several servers passed us by but it seemed we were invisible. We got up and left without being noticed. Thanks for making me... More

We are regular customers at MBB. We love the burgers, though we have never tried the mussels. The service is attentive and management is top notch. The KY Lemon Drop is my favorite drink, while my husband typically indulges in the beer selections. The Spanish Blue is decadent (especially if you enjoy blue cheese), and the truffle Pom frites are... More

Yep.....they serve mussels and burgers. Not just plain old food. Creative dishes. Excellent bites. Wide beer selection. You just can't go wrong with a meal here. Not crazy expensive but certainly no Mickey D's. Go. Enjoy.

Went for a dinner with family. Been here few years ago when it was still pretty new and was interesting place to eat at. This visit was huge disappointment. Place was falling apart and needs remodeling as soon as possible. I gave impression of really dirty restaurant. We waited 50 minutes for a table since there was bunch of teenagers... More

The burgers are great quality but seems to be trying too hard. We couldn't really come up with how to express the character of this restaurant. Paper Table covers, random music selection 80s,90s thru current. My wife and I had this place recommended and now that we have tried it we know that it's not for us. Overall I'd say... More

Ate here because it was within walking distance from the Kentucky Science Center. I had the Moules Basquaise mussels and I found them to be pretty disappointing. Didn't care for the broth, tasted like canned tomatoes with diced chorizo. My friend also had a mussels dish which she thought was bland. On a positive note, they had a kid's menu.... More

We were in the area and wanted to try something different. It was relatively busy for a Wednesday night but we were seated immediately. We started with the pork nachos and they were tasty. It needed crisper more sturdy chips. I had to eat it with a fork. Then I tried the mussels which were a bit lemony for my... More

Let me first say, the food was excellent, but for four burgers and appetizer and four drinks $127 including tip is ridiculous. We started with the Dates In A Blanket--Stuffed dates w/ goat cheese & roasted garlic, wrapped in Nueske’s bacon, smoked honey, tomato sofrito. $10.75. You get three in an order, not good for four people. I wish our... More

You really can not go wrong here if you are looking for a somewhat off the wall menu. Burgers are burgers but one has a very decent array of toppings offered here. I can't speak for the muscles as they just ain't my thang. I will say this however, I posted a excellent review of this place in Open Table... More

Many different varieties of Mussel's and Burgers (their namesake). Many different takes on these classics including (Greek, Indian, Italian, Mexican, and Belgium). Its not low calorie, however food is amazing. Never disappoints. Brunch is terrific on weekends (get the short rib nachos)
