Burgers are the specialty at the Brakeman Grill and they do an excellent job. Our group tried several of the different burgers on the menu and everything was full of flavor and delicious. The secret seems to be the seasonings added to the meet.

This place is THE BOMB! The "Shoreline Burger" is a beef patty with a pile of pastrami on top with horseradish sauce and Swiss cheese. DO I REALLY NEED TO SAY ANY MORE? Great service and very friendly. You have to get there.

We stopped in for lunch and were not disappointed. My husband was grateful that he could substitute a turkey patty on the Yellowstone. I enjoyed their twist on the BLT and the kids loved their little Brakeman burgers. It was a nice decor and friendly...More

Many burger styles -- all very good. Mostly half pound patties. Quarter pound patties available. Also salads, BLTs, and chicken sandwiches. Beer menu includes local brews. Service excellent. Can get busy on weekends. Good local atmosphere.
