visited for lunch on june 5th/07.
the burger bar is a long narrow space with a nice marble topped bar running along one side, booths on the other, and tables up the middle. lots of dark wood on the walls gives it a bit of an "english library" feel, but there's a definite modern slant too. 24 taps, about half craft and half imports, mostly more common stuff. the music playing was odd...early 90s pop/hiphop type stuff, with some other less interesting stuff mixed in.
quality was good. one thing i found a little odd was two different beer menus: the regular one with their draft list and some bottles, and a "reserve" list with some wackier belgian and other imports. definitely ask for the reserve menu (which was in a nice chimay book). the two beers i had were good, one i'd never heard of.
the service was great. we sat at the bar, and the bartender was attentive without being annoying. the "beer guy" was quick to answer our questions and very helpful, even when we asked about other places in the area to visit. the only real faux-pas was when the bartender noticed i still had about a half ounce in the bottom of my bottle and dumped it into my glass before i could protest. i only had a sip left in the glass and didn't really care, but would have been unhappy had this happened at the start of my glass.
the selection was better than i expectd in a casino, but nothing too crazy. while most of the imports are more common stuff, it was nice to see the chimay white on tap and several things in bottles that i'd never tried before.
the food was excellent. this place is great, since even your non-beer geek companions will enjoy the visit (and the couple macro taps may be to their liking anyway). we both really enjoyed our burgers. my wife said the lemonaid was the best ever - not too sweet or acidic, and she also really liked the sweet potato fries and what seemed to be home made dressing.
i thought the prices were reasonable. they weren't spectacular, but definitely better than i expected in a casino (and less than i paid at a few other places in the area). i'd happily return and would recommend this as a good beer oasis on the fairly bland vegas 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.
