It would be very interesting to see how this burger would measure up to others in a blind taste test. Charlie Beinlich's has a sterling reputation but I think it is more due to the atmosphere and simplicity of the bar. The beef is definitely...More

I stopped into this place while my dog was being groomed on the strip mall next door. It was like stepping back in time to a 1950’s bar and grill. The place is immaculate, with well dressed waiters who provide quick service. My Swiss cheese...More

We have heard about Beinlich's for many years and finally stopped in. Wisconsin road house yes. Ambience no. Clearly, it is predicated on they know what is best for you. A thin burger, steamed bun and that's it. Expensive but then it is North Shore...More

I went early on a Thursday evening and it was rammed. Great atmosphere, attentive staff, and simple, non-nonsense, delicious burgers. The coleslaw is also absolutely delicious and at $20 for burgers, fries, drink and a tip it was an affordable and enjoyable dining experience.

They make a good burger, probably the same way they have been making it for years. Not to many choices on the menu, but everything is good. No credit card!
