Was there on 11/14 from about 6:00 to 9:00. Located in Mandalay Place, the shops in the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino. Up the escalator from the House of Blues and a little way down on the left.
The bar seats about 20 and runs down the left of the room, with tables filling the other side, then also running beyond the bar in to a back room like area. I sat at the bar. They have a two sided beer menu with taps on one side and bottles on the other, but be sure to ask for the leather bound Chimay portfolio which contains many, many more bottles. The bartender also told me that they have about 50 more bottles not yet on the menu. By FAR the most extensive beer list on the strip, that I have seen. Prices are a bit high, but not that bad for where you are.
The food consists of high end burgers and a few other choices. I had the Kobe Beef Burger and it was fabulous, $16.
I started with a Big Daddy IPA (draft), as I can't get this in MA. Had a Chimay Grand Reserve with my burger, a Chimay white (draft), a St. Bernardus Abt 12, and some winter beer that I was recommended by the person next to me. All the beers were served in non-chilled glasses, and I didn't even had to ask :)!
Service from the team of bartenders depended on which one was helping me. It ranged from very good to average. Beers were say $7 for a draft to about $10 for each of the Belgians that I had, but I had a craving.
A definite don't miss bar every time to the strip.

I had the pleasure of visiting the Burger Bar on my recent trip to Vegas and I was quite pleasantly surprised. My group went there for the food and were quite amazed with the beer selection here.

In addition to a very nice tap selection, there's a great bottle selection. My brother and I both had the 2011 Anchor Christmas ale, though they had a few other vintages available. Really, any place with multiple years of the same beer gets kudos from me.

Service was good, although we didn't really test the beer knowledge of our waiter -- this is primarily a restaurant, after all. However, if you are looking for dinner and want a place with a lot more than the regular BMC crowd, this is it. It should also be noted that prices here are quite reasonable, with respect to other places on the strip. Most of their draft beers were in the $6-7 range, versus paying $8-9 for a bottle of Corona elsewhere on the strip.

So, value, selection and great food -- definitely worth a stop.

We went to Burger Bar this afternoon for an early lunch. We walked there from MGM Grand, it's located in Mandalay Place, which is located in the mall between Mandalay Bay & Luxor. We got there right when they opened at 11AM and there was already a small line.

The service here was excellent. Our waiter was friendly, responsive and attentive. The beer selection is solid with over 100 bottles offerings and about 30 or so draft options. The drafts were divided by country and the bottles were divided by style.

I started off with a Belgian Kriek that was amazing and served in appropriate glassware. I also had an Anchor Steam with my burger and that was fresh. The burgers here are the main attraction and you can choose from angus beef, kobe beef, turkey, buffalo, lamb, etc. I went with a kobe beef burger and it was delicious. I ordered it medium and it was cooked perfectly. They have an extensive selection of different toppings, so you can make your burger to your preference.

I really enjoyed this place. Check out the nice selection of brewery signs in the long hallway at the back of the restaurant. I would definitely suggest checking this place out if you are staying on the strip and like quality burgers & craft beers.

A - Vegas touristy. It's IN the Mandalay Bay

Q - All the beers there are good stuff. Mostly Belgians, with some other good stuff too.

S - Typical Vegas service - outstanding

S - The beer selection was all good stuff, but it was small. Not a lot of variety.

F - OMG. Amazing. Greatest burgers in the known universe.

V - Expensive.

Visited with the family on a recent trip to Vegas. Being the only recognizable place on the Strip with a decent craft selection, we decided on this joint. Located amongst the shops and other restaurants on the main floor of Mandalay Bay, medium sized place and a dive-bar atmosphere with about 20 OK craft taps (some Belgian, DFH, Sierra Nevada and unoffensive local offerings - a wit or two and some pale ales), nothing outstanding or overly enticing. Good friendly service, didn't have to wait for a table when we arrived at around 5pm. An OK regular bottle selection, alot of which is recapitulated when I asked for the "Special Bottle List." Nothing crazy in here, but it's pretty pricey - they had bottles of Abacus and Parabola for $40, and that was the rarest of what they had in store. Above average food, albeit unspectacular - my Kobe beef burger was good, but not the best I've had. I might revisit here if I came back to Vegas, but there was certainly much left to be desired.

Stopped in upon consulting with local BAs via forums.
Very strong selection, though inferior to Todd English. Lots of Belgians and US crafts.
I decided to go with the burger, to see if the place can live up to its name and not only was it priced rather reasonably, but it was pretty delicious.
Eventhough it is located in a mall type setting, the ambiance is inside is pretty tolerable. Some of the other visitors were consuming BMCs, as the name would absolutely attract "beer junkies," that live on Bud Light and other such delicacies, and some of the waitresses, whose natural shapes have been modified by surgeons operating in the fields of plastics, had no shame in not knowing much about the good beer, but nevertheless, for this locale, if you must have craft beer- this is one of the stops that I would recommend.

I stopped in while waiting for my flight home on a recent trip. It seemed like other BAs have enjoyed their visits, so I made this my last stop before heading to the airport. I grabbed a seat at the bar and ordered a burger. Service was quick and I didn't get lost in the shuffle during a shift change, which was nice. The surroundings felt like LV, with a mixture of higher end (stone bartop and dark wood) with campy (lots of neon) elements. The selection was solid, with ~24 taps and ~100 bottles, including ~10 vintage bottles (stuff like FW12&13, Stone VE, etc.). Beer prices were reasonable, barring the vintage bottles, with $6 pints available (there were also 6oz samples for $2.50). My buffalo burger was good, but not exceptional, although the jalapeno bacon and onion rings were quite good. Overall, I was expecting a little more, but didn't leave disappointed.
