We both had burgers and really enjoyed them. Awesome onion rings! Also beer on tap. Weather was a bit chilly, so we ate inside which is a little closed in and cramped. So I would think that warmer weather sitting out on the patio would be really nice. Next time we are in PG we are going to try the... More

Pacific Grove and Monterey are expensive. But, this is a good option for a low-key place with good food. I had the spicy Thai wrap which wasn't particularly "Thai" but was really delicious. The service was quick and friendly. Had I had my dog with me, we could have eaten together on the patio- something which is becoming rare these... More

Came over to Pacific Grove from Monterey, and had lunch here. What a great tasting burger. I ordered the Classic and was able to order it how I like it. They have "themed" burgers too and quesadillas, but this is what I was feeling that day. Nice place for a quick lunch.

Nice little deli/grill with very cold beer and outside seating. If you are lucky you might meet a local character named Steve Munsie. Be sure and check out his colorful commentary on Pacific Grove history and culture.

This was a block from our inn. A nice, quiet restaurant. I'm sure it's popular with the locals which is what we wanted. Friendly and accommodating. One of the best Philly cheese steaks I've had! Hats off to the chef.

Nice little place with outdoor patio where you can bring your dog. Indoor has seats too, but no dogs allowed in there. Good variety of food selections and drinks (beer/wine only). Won't break your wallet like full scale restaurants, especially if you have kids with you. The burgers are very good and the bowls are yummy as well. Enjoy!

We visit Pacific Grove once a year and each time we make a point to eat here. Great burgers. Place isn't much to look at but the burgers are cooked on a perfectly seasoned grill. Let friendly on the out door patio. Appears to be local favorite.

This place has a large selection of gourmet burgers and wraps among other things. I obviously can't speak for all the items but our FIRESIDE BURGER (with BBQ Sauce, Corn Salsa, And Cheddar Cheese) was great.

We enjoyed a flavorful hamburger and fries sitting outside on the patio watching the parade down the main street. workers were hanging chinese lanterns in the trees to celebrate the beginning of summer!
