There seems to be a ton of burger places in the greater Portland area and this seems to be another one to add to the list. Unfortunately, it does nothing to put itself ahead of the pack and is really just another standard burger place.

My friends and I ate at this restaurant on a Sunday evening while vacationing in Lake Oswego recently. The waitress was admittedly new to the position and shared with us multiple times that she really was not "into beer and could not offer any advice on the beers offered at this establishment" even though they specialize in beer. She brought beer samples we requested and then again shared that she was not "into beer". The service was less than prompt. One in our group had her order totally done wrong and had to wait longer to get what she really ordered. We were also close enough to the kitchen to over hear the argument that ensued between the waitress and cook when the order had to be redone. The chicken wings were way too spicy and the fries were swimming in a pool of grease and very unappetizing to look at, let alone eat. The soup was cold and had to be sent back to be warmed to room temperature. To top it all off, one member of our group who ordered a burger ended up with food poisoning that night and into the next day which not only was horrific for her but also cost her a portion of her vacation being violently ill. I would not recommend this over priced burger place to anyone considering it. There are plenty of other fine restaurants in Lake Oswego to choose from where one will leave satisfied and wanting to return.

We have eaten a Blast Burger several times since it became part of Lake Oswego's very pleasant downtown redevelopment. On this visit, we were pleased to find that table service had been added and the menu substantially expanded. On a sunny day, there are few places as nice as the outdoor seating in the downtown complex in Lake O. Blast Burger is on the corner of the building so its large windows that open up make even patrons in the interior feel like they are outside.
My burger was excellent. The meat was flavorful and the toppings well prepared and presented. There is an excellent selection of different burgers. My wife had a chicken and vegetable bowl which she also found to be very good. Fellow patrons appeared to be enjoying their burgers and other food.
Strongly recommended.

Great place to go and eat. Nice outside seating as well as that inside. The Bison burger is worth a try. Embarrassingly big. Tasty. You'll have to squish it to get it into the mouth. Ha!
Good service too.

My husband and I visited Blast burger for dinner. It's in a beautiful spot right next to Oswego Lake, although you can't see the lake from the patio. It was perfect weather for dining on the patio so we sat outside. There was live music inside which people seemed to be enjoying. We started out with the loaded tots, which were good. My husband had the clam chowder, which he said was fair and I had a cheeseburger with sweet potato fries. The burger was cooked as ordered but nothing special about it. Same with the fries. If you are looking for a pretty location to hang out on a nice night (or day), Blast is good. Nothing extraordinary food wise but not disappointing either.
