Nothing to rave about! We tried a few items and all seemed typical and like any old bar food like joint! Good prices but nothing I would go out of my way for. The only bright delight was the cupcakes. Funny item to to have...More

Went here for lunch with a friend. It was during peak time and the area is kind of dark but the service was quick and I had a great turkey burger! Would definitely recommend!

This place got great reviews and it was fine, but not great. The food and service were nothing to write home about. With 5 different people and 5 different things ordered, everyone felt about the same. Just average. We ordered cupcakes to go thinking they...More

Restaurant 55 serves the BEST burger I've ever had. They have a good variety of add-ons so there should be something for everyone (And the fries are delicious as well). If you like burgers, Restaurant 55 is a must try!

Love going to this place for happy hour but also family dinners! Food is amazing and the martinis are so good! There is usually a wait on the weekends but worth it!

This is a great restaurant with a full service bar and delicious burgers! I rarely find myself in front of a plate I can't finish, but 55 challenges me every time. The portions are huge without sacrificing quality! Only criticism is the fact that the...More

I'm honestly not too sure why this place is as popular as it is. I'm some one who LOVES a good hamburger and French fries, but theirs are just ok. Fries don't come with the burger, they are extra. Everything cost extra. I don't like...More
