Haywire is not just a burger joint. My wife and I go there quite a bit. We have never had a bad experience there. The staff is very good, even when the place is packed. I've tried almost every burger and never have been disappointed. The parking lot is a bit of a mess, but there is usually someone there... More

The parking lot is awful: Tiny and difficult to navigate. But it's usually full, which is always a good sign for a restaurant. We eat here about every month or so, especially in the summer. The burgers here are interesting, though expensive. They are always cooked perfectly and come with a side of shoestring fries. You can "go haywire" for... More

I have eaten here several times and not have had a bad meal yet! The tap list is fantastic also. The servers are attentive and courteous. A true shoreline gem!

I live about an hour away from Haywire, but I have been there several times. Usually after a day of shopping at the outlets my wife and I will go there to eat instead of having to drive home and cook. I am a very big fan of the variety of burgers they offer, and they have been cooked perfectly... More

On a recent trip we stopped here for lunch and discovered that it was hard to make a choice of burger. The selections all sounded good. They also have a big selection of beer on tap. I had burger special that day -- French Onion burger -- with one of the IPAs on tap. My wife had the Holiday Turkey... More

Don't be fooled by the bar. This is a great place for burgers and more. Several sea food dishes and chicken meals. Great service.

As you might guess from the fact that the parking lot is always packed at mealtime, Haywire Burger Bar is worth the trip. The modern but warm decor, friendly staff, and delicious food make for a great meal out. My husband and I visited Haywire last week and had an excellent time. Before the meal, we split 10 wings, a...

My husband was craving a hamburger, and it was a Tuesday so we stopped into Haywire. It was quieter than our first visit; although the bar had patrons, the music was not loud and a conversation was possible. My husband ordered the Haywire burger and I had the burger with avocado. I chose a side salad instead of fries. My... More

We went to this place after a friend raved about it to us. Well, my friend was NOT wrong. We walked in and seated right away by a friendly host. The rustic but modern decor was nicely done. I wish I could remember my servers name because she was very cheery and provided such great service. The chicken quesadilla was... More

Went here for dinner while we were in the area. There were a couple of items other than burgers on the menu, but burgers was what we went for. The burgers were generous (8 ounces), and came with a wide array of toppings. I thoroughly enjoyed the brie burger, while my husband had the Hawaiian burger. The Burger Bar also... More
