Stopped here for a dinner alone before a conference. I had the Sriracha Bacon Burger and truffle Parmesan fries and both were very good. The selection of craft beer was decent and the bartender knew her stuff. I just wish my burger hadn't fallen apart! Made it a little messy...

I had a burger and it was really good! Everyone I was with enjoyed their food. We had to separate our large party into 3 separate tables but that was okay. I would recommend trying it out.

Great burgers, appetizers and service. We order a Maui and American burgers. Both are delicious. Great place to dinner with friends or family.

......When you build a hamburger, you must use the proper bread source to hold it all together.....and don’t overcomplicate it.

Granted their burgers dazzle and entertain, but eating them is a sloppy process ......and not in a good way. I hosted 9 lovely ladies and two gents, that chose this spot for lunch today. They all had familiarity with Prime 16, while I was a virgin.

I ordered a Honey Truffle Gourmet Burger, which featured apple smoked bacon, swiss cheese and roasted tomato.

The good: The meat quality, the taste, its' texture, its' juiciness......almost perfect. The bacon and cheese was spot-on.

The bad: construction and assembly suffers. The bottom of the roll soaked up most of the greasy goodness of the burger, but the top bun crumbled into pieces and fell to the plate. Handling it was a mess. The roasted tomato was not properly roasted, but was two unripe undercooked hard wedges, that squished out of the burger assembly, across the table at first bite. The honey dripped off the burger and puddled on the plate, and was sadly soaked up by a superfluously placed paper napkin placed under the canister of soggy, truffled fries. Was I supposed to suck the honey/greasy/salty/truffled goodness out of the paper napkin .......I was confused and also embarrassed to have to retrieve my tomato.

So, my disappointment comes from structural problems which made it difficult to eat.

The burger simply did not hold together.

Next time, if there is a next time, I will build my own burger, request a potato roll, with hardly anything on it.
