After reading the great reviews about this place on BA, we decided to hit this place up while a short trip to Vegas. I definitely regret making the effort.
Service: I had made reservation to get to this place. We arrived 5 to 10 minutes passed our reservation time (due to bad traffic). The hostess told us that "we were very late and should consider going somewhere else." I figured she was having a bad day, so I told her we would wait. We were seated 10 minutes after (not long at all). Our waiter, great guy, but told us that they were short staffed, therefore the service was slow (yet decent).
Beer: they had a good selection, I noticed Deschutes and Widmer on the menu. My only problem was that I felt overpriced! I tend to do beer flights (to find new beers). They averaged $4.50 per taster. What made it ridiculous was that they would charge you $4.50 for a taster of MILLER LITE! It is already a bad beer (surprisingly they offered it), and then it was overpriced (much like everything else). I believe you can buy a six pack for that price. Wow I was shocked!
Food: I had noticed other reviews had talked a lot about the burgers. I decided to order a burger for $20 (I figure there has to be some magic going on, ciabatta bread, blue cheese, etc). I was wrong. It wasn't that the burger was bad, but it wasn't $20 good. At best it was ok. I was there with 3 other friends and no one at my table was impressed.
Atmosphere: regular diner looking place. Lots of things hanging from the walls. You have to walk out of the restaurant to use the bathroom.
In conclusion, we were disappointed with this place. We ordered 4 burgers, and one beer. Our bill came out $88 and change, very overpriced. Not worth a repeat.

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.
