Stopped in too see what the lunch options were. There was a woman seated near the door who seemed to be the only one that cared who came in, and she asked what we were looking for. Assuming she worked there, I asked for a...More

Hubby and I stopped in for a quick bite and drinks. Place is a little run down. Food took forever to come out even though we were the first ones to order and the bar was not busy. Ordered a chicken wrap that was dripping...More

Craig has single handedly ruin Burkes with his horrible people skill, absolutely miserable work ethic (I'v never seen him do anything other than take money from drawer and leave). It's clear he has no restaurant experience and no intentions of learning it. He knows everything...More

Employees are great and know the clientele very well. The owner (Craig)is just someone who wants to boss people around. The bar functions on its own. For the most most part a great place to go and watch people.

I don't understand the appeal of this bar. I can't think of one reason to go there. I've been twice, only because I was dragged along by coworkers who wanted to eat outside for lunch a couple of times. The first time, it was a...More

Years ago this used to be a local hot spot that I spent many Friday nights at, but a couple owners and a recession later it has deteriorated to a dump. Horrible food, inattentive bartenders, and a run-down feel await you here. Keep driving and...More
