Stayed at Mandalay Bay for a convention. After reading about this place went with a couple other co-workers to check out the beer list. A couple hours later we were still sitting at the bar trying as much beer that we could from the west coast. Bartender was very knowledgeable and did a great job showing us some of the more rare beer. Of course those bottles were pretty pricey, however the draft and some of the bottles weren't to bad for being on the strip. For what we drank I'm pretty sure he gave us a few beers for free. Had a larger amount of bottles to choose from and a good selection on tap.

We ended up going back to eat there everyday we were in Vegas. Burgers were awesome. A little expensive but well worth the visit in. We had a great experience every time we went in the Burger Bar from the service to the beer. Will definitely be going back for at least a beer and burger next time in Vegas. (912 characters)

I usually dont visit the strip on my days off but I had to after hearing about this place. It's located in Mandalay place, which is situated between the Mandalay Bay and the Luxor.

It was a nice looking bar, clean and modern. They had a very nice bottle list, including some reserve releases such as Parabola. The beer was pricey, but expected for being on the strip. The burgers were good and service was great.

Overall a great place to eat and have a good beer if price doesn't bother you too much. (503 characters)

In Vegas for work, I decided to pop in to the Burger Bar. It's in a mall that is attached to Mandalay Bay. I expected it to be fancier with a celebrity chef owner, not that that is a bad thing. There is a big bar where I sat, tables, tvs, etc. The beer selection is good although I expected more west-coast specials and hard-to-finds. They have all the Belgians, Lambics, Unibroue, many DFH offerings, some locals, New Belgiams, a list of vintage selections plus more. The food here is great. I had he Hubert Keller burger for $20. It was incredible (not for everyday, but worth it as an extravagance). The bartenders were great and attentive. I'll be back. (657 characters)

Located in the mall area between Mandalay Bay and Luxor, Burger Bar is a smallish restaurant with the vibe of a mid 20th century steakhouse... wooden tables, chairs and booths with a stone topped bar with minimal decor.

The beer menu is fantastic for the location with craft offerings from all over the country, not just the west coast. The draft list contains many fresh and local craft options as well as others from across the country. The bottle menu is dominated by craft beers with a small "vintage" list including the last 3 FSW anniversary beers. Felt funny to see a big DFH promotion 2,500 miles from DE.

The burger menu offers a hanful of cuts of meat and bun options and about a page worth of topping options. The burgers were fantastic, cooked perfectly to how you ordered. All the ingredients were top notch, no wilted veggies or unflavorful cheeses.

Would have returned more often if I actually had a tendency to eat more than just little plates throughout the day rather than a full meal when im on vacation. (1,027 characters)

While my rating of Burger Bar is based solely on the beer, first I have to make a comment about the food. The Surf & Turf burger (a lobster tail and asparagus burger) was simply the best burger I've ever had in my life. Try it. I may go back for another!

Back to the beer. Okay to good selection of taps, good to very good selection of bottles. All using correct glassware as far as I can tell and with a few cool beer related items hanging up on the wall. I had a Saison from tap and enjoyed it quite a bit.

The service was very, very good and fast as hell. Definitely worth going back. Soon. (595 characters)

The restaurant is located in the walkway/shopping area between the Luxor and the Mandalay Bay hotels (called Mandalay Place). If you're in either hotel, or THEHotel, you can get to it easily without setting a foot outside. Any other hotel is easy enough, either through the tram, or you can walk if you can brave the heat or it's winter.

There's a bar the length of the restaurant (the place is rather thin) with a good amount of seating, and TVs to watch which I assume mostly have sports on. There are also tables and booths.

The beer selection really surprised me, with a good tap selection and an awesome bottle selection. I'm not sure how many people actually decided to go for the craft beer though, so there may be lower turnover. I did see a Pumpkin Ale in a bottle (this was in July), so I'm guessing a lot of beer sits in the fridge for a while.

The burgers are really good, as it's their specialty.

Good service and friendly. The prices are a little higher but it is Vegas, so it's expected.

Overall, a place to hit if you're on the south end of the Strip. (1,075 characters)

I am Here now reviewing from iPhone. Great food. Beer selection is best I've seen in Vegas. I had a 90 min, a chimay white label, a sublimely self righteous, and a delirium tremens on tap and a great burger with guacamole cheddar and afried egg. Service is good at bar (where I am sitting). There ate lots of people here and for good reason this is the best burger and best beer in Vegas. I am about to refill with the next round so sso long farewell. I've just found I must make up a few more words to finish this review (521 characters)

Ate alone at the bar on Tues, 5/25/10 around 9:00pm.

Greeted by Julia, the bartender. She was everything you could want in a bartender starting with her friendly service and knowledge of the beer and ending with... well, let's keep this about the beer. The place was steady but not swamped, so she took time out to chat about beer a few times. I seemed to be the only BA-type there.

Looked over the taplist and was reasonably impressed. A solid lineup of 25 or so beers by most standards, exceptional for Vegas on-Strip. You can order two different full-size pours or put together a six-beer 5-oz sampler flight. I went for the latter:

-Sin City Amber (gotta try the local, even if it's not your favorite style)
-Grand Teton Bitch Creek ESB
-DFH 90-Minute
-SN 30th Anniversary (Ken & Fritz)
-Stone IRS (2010, tapped just two days before)
-St. Louis Framboise

Ordered the "Country Natural" beef for my burger. I kept it simple with a sesame seed bun, pepper jack, and A-1, but you can build your own from a list of almost any topping you can imagine or choose from a handful of pre-defined setups.

While I was waiting, I looked at the bottle list and briefly regretted my decision to go for the taps. The bottle lineup is outstanding. I can't even begin to name them all, but a few things stand out, just because of their Vegas-like extravagance. They have FW 11, 12, and 13. You can buy 12 and 13 solo, but 11 is only available as part of a vertical of all three that requires three adults and $200. Pricey, but it would be a fun splurge if you have a group of BAs for a weekend trip. Overall though, most of the bottle prices seemed pretty reasonable for restaurant service and, once again, *very* reasonable for Vegas. Markup on singles was about 100-125% and bombers around 75-100%.

The burger arrived perfectly cooked (pink through-and-through medium). By then I'd finished the Framboise, the Sin City, and the Bitch Creek. It paired nicely with the 90-Min and both stouts. Sweet potato fries accompanied.

This is the place to go for a burger and craft on the Strip. Pour 24 (@ NY NY) doesn't have food and the Burger Brasserie (@ Paris) has crap beer (and neither the burger nor the service were as good.) (2,217 characters)

What a strange place to put a beer bar, on the shopping walkway between the Mandalay and the Luxor resort complexes.

We (my wife and I) sat on the bar corner as you walk in, most tables were full and the bar stools well populated on an early Monday evening in May. The fridge in front of me had beers calling to be bought (Deus, etc, etc), but I'm here for the beers on tap I can't get in Europe.

My wife, bless her, orders a Pabst Blue Ribbon, I fall off my bar stool but recover in time to ask for a Grand Teton Bitch Creek ESB without losing too much street cred. I don't think anyone else heard her order. I then had beers from Kona, Pyramid and Ommegang, all from the taps. Too full for any food, pity, everybody else seemed to be enjoying theirs.

Friendly staff who let us get on with our drinking, attentive, but not obtrusive, helpful when asked and appeared knowledgable.

I would never have set foot in the place if it wasn't for this site, as you'd just never guess the joys that it holds by looking at it from the passageway it sits on. (1,051 characters)

I only managed to slip in here a couple times on my trip to Las Vegas, but it was great little place. The beers I had were fantastic. Being able to pick my own flights was nice, minimum 6, and they seemed to be priced reasonably. The bartender even placed them in proper order, aka least intense flavor to most intense, which was nice to see. Finally had my first taste of Murphy's stout on tap, soooo good. I also had a nice comparison between two hoppy beers, Dogfish head 90 Min and Grand Teton Bitch Creek. Both very good but I prefered the Bitch Creek. Never did get through their whole list, but that is for another trip. The food smelled and looked amazing, but all I had was beer, maybe next time. (705 characters)

I am almost as much of a foodie as I am a beer geek. But it was the food that attracted me to Burger Bar...and Chef Hubert Keller, also of upscale (and, thank you chef, a small but thoughtful beer list for a French restaurant) Fleur de Lys. This was the chef on Top Chef Masters who, in the dorm room challenge, cooled pasta in a shower. He won that episode and finished third.

Anyway...Burger Bar has some excellent burgers. I was really happy with the food. Had a Kobe burger with caramelized onion, bleu cheese, and peppered bacon on ciabatta.

For a non-beer focused place, this has a very good beer list. Couple that with being in Las Vegas, and it is a downright oasis. Good selection of Dogfish (e.g., Palo Santo on tap!), Sierra (had XXXth Anniversary on tap), Firestone Walker (do a 11th-12th-13th anniversary (22 oz. btl each) tasting for $200 min. 3 people). Nice selection of Belgians: Deus (!), Orval (great with a burger), Chimay, Piraat, etc. Quebec's Unibroue and New Belgium also abundant.

I would call this a must-go for anyone visiting Vegas. (1,063 characters)

So much has been said about Burger Bar that I had to convince my two friends to come here with me.

Looks and feel like a resto-bar without all that casino noise and smoke, which was a nice thing during out stay. The booths have a very intimate feel, and they even have TV's for each booth! On the walls are beer memorabilia and collections of beer coasters.

The tap selection is acceptable for a beer geek, though not earth shattering. The bottle selection, however, is noteworthy. They have a lot of Trappist beers in the bottle, also some BCS, The Abyss, and Firestone 11, 12, and 13. My friend got a Haywire Hefe, while I got a DFH Indian Brown from the bottle. I got a tulip glass to pour my beer into, and my beer wasn't served too cold, so big props to Burger Bar for correct serving temperature.

Service was acceptable, though I would have liked to have been checked on a little more often as I was still deciding on a beer. I take a long time to decide on beer, and even after our food order had been taken, I was still deciding. Then when I had a decision, it wasn't until our food came out 15 minutes later that I could finally put in my beer order. That's why I prefer to sit at the bar.

Oh yes, the burger. It's freggin awesome. Nuff said! Too bad the sweet potato fries were overcooked.

It's kind of pricey, so I'd come here for a great burger and a great beer. Even the beer alone should get you over any craft beer withdrawls while gambling in Vegas. (1,474 characters)

Okay...you are in Las Vegas and realize that every restaurant and bar has the same old beer, not good. Well do yourself a favor and go to the Burger Bar located in Mandalay Place (which is inside Mandalay Bay). It is the only place on the strip which has any respect for good beer. It has 24 beers on tap, some are excellent and some are horrible. Stone and DFH on tap so atleast you know some are good. LOTS of bottles available including some of the best selections in the world. The bottom line is that if you are a beer advocate (which you obviously are if you are reading this) and you find yourself in Vegas, then this is the place to go! On top of their selection, their bartenders are excellent. Once one of the bartenders realized I was a beer freak (Julia) she gave me free "tastes" of some really awesome beers where she and I split a beer. I didn't try their food yet, not really important, it's all about the beer. (927 characters)

Visited on November 4 (I believe, I didn't write the date down)

I'll try to make this short and sweet because there's not a whole lot to say that is beyond what the other reviewers have said.

Atmosphere was dark and a bit noisy, but that's to be expected at lunchtime at a high-quality restaurant/bar. I dug the seating and lighting setups.

Food and beer were both delicious. If you're a vegetarian, fear not - they have a burger or two for us and the one I had was quite good. I ordered a DFH Palo Santo Marron to go with it. The beer was spectacular but that' can't be attributed to the bar now, can it?

The service was a little slow and the ladies weren't wearing a whole lot. It's great for the single dudes out there who love to ogle but for those of us who like to keep the eyes on the prize (the wife is the prize, by the way), it's a little off-putting - especially when not all of the waitress-ladies have the appropriate dimensions for their selected clothing choices. Not a big deal, the lack of fabric probably works to their advantage most of the time and a happy waitress will work faster and be more pleasant. Upon re-reading that paragraph, I sound like a jackass. Forgive me, but heed my warnings your fellow restaurant-goer is concerned with those sorts of things.

The beer selection is the best I've seen. Of course, I've not been too many places (I'm prairie land-locked up here in ND) but the selection was quite good compared to what I imagine a lot of places to have.

Food, as I mentioned earlier, was fantastic. No extra comment needed in that department.

The prices were a bit higher than I was hoping for but I feel like the price-to-quality ratio is better than I get most other places.

So, it turns out this review wasn't as short as I initially thought it was going to be. Let that be a testament to how good this place is. I couldn't leave it brief, the Burger Bar is too good. (1,915 characters)

Overall a decent place but I really expected better from an eatery/bar in Mandalay Bay Casino. Very good burger and worth every penny of the $20 I spent on it. Cooked to perfection, well presented and with excellent ingredients . So what's the problem?
The service was ok for Fridays style place but the servers have little to NO understanding of the beers they are serving.

Averageish selection Dogfishhead and Chimay abounded (YAWN), I figured in a town that is know to have some of the best of everything they could have done better. Taps beer was good tasting, I had the 90 minute. I settled on this after they could not find the other two bottled beers I requested.

Do n't get me wrong if you want a great burger joint that happens to have a good beer selection then this is the place. If you want a great beer bar that happens to have great burgers then move on to another spot. (889 characters)

Missed this place on my previous visit to Vegas, but glad I checked it out this time.
Excellent range of beers, both on tap and bottled. Food is good too as other reviewers have noted.

We tried the 6 beer sampler which is good and obviously beers on tap only.

Service we good and we were recognised the third time we visited and given a free beer each which was nice.

The only down side is the prices, though that could be partly due to the weak £ against the $ for us!

Recommended. I'd certainly visit again on any visits to Vegas. (537 characters)

Burger Bar Beer Floats

On a recent trip with my wife to Vegas (and thanks to all who recommended their favorite places for beer on the strip), we went to Hubert Keller's"s The Burger Bar in Mandalay Bay Place. There's plenty of reviews of the place, as it is probably one of the top 3 places for beer on the strip.

But I'm here to remind you of the beer floats. We sat at the bar to have a better chance of talking to the bartenders and staff--always love to watch the dance behind the bar. My wife ordered a flight of beer floats to finish up our late lunch (I had the Kobe beef burger with smoked bacon and an aged Wisconsin Cheddar). As I attacked my burger and the remnants of my flight of beers, I watched another flight of beers being poured. Beer geek that I am, I couldn't help but make fun of the poor guy's selection--with so many good beers around, they were pouring 2 Guinness, Blue Moon, a Framboise, a Newcastle Brown Ale and a Beck's. Certainly nothing that they couldn't get at home.

Little did I know, that these beers were being poured for me!

They came on the same flight board as had my own flight--but this time those simple beers were topped with ice cream. Embarrassed, I lifted the Blue Moon and tasted it. Nothing special and a little strange.

My wife, however, took one of the Guinness glasses and quickly mixed the vanilla ice cream into it. What a difference! We quickly mixed each of the beer floats--Guinness and Chocolate, Blue Moon and blueberry, Guinness and coffee, Newcastle and pistachio and the Beck's with cherry. The only one I thought was a bit over the top was the Framboise paired with vanilla. Bit too sweet for me.

But the flight of beer floats was so delicious, we decided to make another trip back to Mandaly Bay the day before we left for home to have them again! (1,818 characters)

This is my favorite restaurant in Vegas and I think my favorite beer bar anywhere. Unbelievable beer list including many draft beers and an amazing selection of bottles. This is the first place I had Deschutte's Abyss as well as numerous sours and other interesting finds.

The food as well is amazing. The main entree, the burger of course. But at this place you build your burger with a myriad of cheese choices, bacon choices (inlcuding jalapeno bacon), veggies and many other toppings.

The mandalay bay is and one end of the strip and can be a trek if you're not at that end. However, it's well worth the trip and they have good black jack and crap tables for after dinner. Say hello to my money if you win any of it back. (728 characters)

Burger Bar always has a great selection of taps as well as a great bottle selection. They interchange taps quite regularly and bring out some nice seasonal beers. The food their is very quality but a tad pricey. It is always a pleasure to go their before a concert at House of Blues. Probably the only place in town where you can get a Firestone Walker anniversary vertical but with a bit of a price. Definitely worth checking out. Last time I was there they had Sublimely self righteous and mirror mirror on tap. (513 characters)

Visited Burger Bar on August 6, 2009 and after reading reviews on BA, was very pleased with the beer selection. Was able to get a Stone Sublimely Self-righteous ale on tap, which was excellent. Had a great conversation with the owner who happened to have a sample 750mL of Firestone IPA in the back. He brought it out and shared it with me at no cost...great guy who knows his beer no doubt. Overall, great selection of bottled beers and decent selection of taps...all reasonably priced, especially considering this is Vegas. Also had a Fire Rock Pale Ale and Deschutes black butte porter...

Would recommend this place to any BA in the area...best beer selection I could find during my visit. (693 characters)

Okay, no one is going to Vegas for the beer selection. With that in mind, make your way over to Mandalay and you will be very impressed. I tried to get over there before their keg of Mirror Mirror ran out but I was a day late. The bartender saw my disappointment, gave me two tasters and could tell I was a beer guy and pulled out the black book of vintage beers. Very impressed. Almost talked me into a $30 beer.

After I enjoyed two nice drafts and paid, I noticed they even cut my first beer price in half. Talked to the manager and he knows his stuff as well and appreciates any BAs talking to him.

Wished I had didn't have big meal planned an hour later or would have tried the food as well. Worth the visit if you're on the Strip (737 characters)

A nice tap selection that was quite diverse overall and an even more impressive bottle selection, though some to the prices on the bottle list seemed a tad bit prohibitive.

What proved to be a severe let down was the service. Saying it was average at best, would be a severe understatement. One cusomter asked the bartender what the difference between DFH 60 & 9- Minute IPA was, and they replied, "you'll like it, it will get you drunker quicker."

The food was good, but again the burgers didn't quite live up to the hype.

The atmosphere was also a little off-putting as I found it hectic and chaotic, not somewhere where I could truly enjoy a beer. I felt rushed and really didn't enjoy the experience.

Overall, I may have had elevated expectations based on the experiences of my fellow BAs, but the Burger Bar proved to be a severe let down. (850 characters)

Was there for the UFC 100 hoopla and stumbled upon this place after the wife and kid went to see Chris Angel (who?). You heard me right. I played it off and decided to venture to Mandalay Bay and back to the Luxor where I went upstairs and found heaven! I just wish I found it earlier. Crap beers in EVERY hotel except this place.

Went in around 8:15 and found a single seat at the large bar area and promptly looked at some empty tables which would quickly fill. I was astounded by the number of taps (23?) and great beers in the coolers directly behind the bar. They had all Chimay bottles, Urthel singles!!, Rochefort 6-10, Hennepin, Westmalle, Gulden Draak, Nogne Porter, Duvel, Old Stock Ale and numerous Trappist Achel to name a few.

On tap they produced Dogfishhead 60 Minute, Bitch Creek ESB, Mirror Mirror, Franziskaner Dunkel, Haywire Hefe, Chimay Red, Delirium Tremens, Lambic Framboise, Primo, Stella Artois, Miller Lite, Bass Ale, Lost Coast Tangerine, Boddingtons, Blue Moon, Fat Tire, Newcastle, Big Daddy (Speakeasy), Grimbergen and Stone Self Righteous! AWESOME selection to satisfy any thirsty man waiting for his wife and kid to get through some fake magic act.

Three bartenders to tend to the thirsty and I started with a Stone Self Righteous and get this....it was served in a Goblet! Whoa! Now that was way suprising and the bartender even mentioned "Nice choice." Next was a Mirror Mirror which was also served in a goblet. Wife called and I had to go. :o(

Overall I had a great experience with my attendance at the Burger Bar. My only regret was not staying at Mandalay Bay or the Luxor to experience all the high quality beers this place has to offer. The bartenders were attentive even though I didn't order food (which you can at the bar) and even had a little small talk. For the UFC 100 going on and a Saturday night to boot, I had a great experience. I didn't order any food but the dudes hamburger and onion rings next to me looked awesome.

Don't make the mistake I did and wait to venture to this place on the end of your trip. Seek it out next time your in Vegas and you won't be disappointed. I know it's on my to do list next time. (2,171 characters)

Good beer selection, good location, excellent burger.

First, this place is about the burgers and the burgers you get here are top notch. Menu consists of pre-built or build your own burgers. Depending on what type of meat and toppings you get, you could spend anywhere from $15 to $75 just on the burger alone. It's worth it.

Beer selection is pretty good. About 10 beers on tap. Mostly good stuff (Stone Sublimely, Deschutes Mirror Mirror to name a few) and only 1 macro. Higher alcohol beers on tap were only served 9 oz at a time.

Bottle selection was extensive, and some stuff they had was not on the menu (I noticed some DFH 120s in a cooler and got 1). The 120 was fairly priced I thought, but some of the other bottles (Firestone Walkers, Stone VEs, Cantillons) were too expensive in my opinion. The 120 was served in the bottle with a snifter along side, very nice touch by the bartender that evening.

Atmosphere was nice. For a place with 2 bars, it was mostly quiet. Didn't notice any smoke and you are in a mall type area so you are a 1 minute walk to the Luxor or Mandlay Bay cansino floor, but far enough away that you aren't smoothered with the sounds from the floor.

Overall, a pretty good place. I would like to see them offer more reasonable bottle prices, but the stuff on tap was fair and the burgers were excellent in every way. I ate here 2 times and spent some time at the bar on my last night in Vegas. This is a place I will visit every time I'm in Vegas. (1,485 characters)

I live here in vegas and finally made it to this place! It's crazy that the first beer spot in vegas to offer vintage cellared /vertical beers along with high quality seasonals or special releases on tap happens to be on the strip or in a casino.

As of today the beers to look out for on tap are:

Stone - Self Righteous ale - extremely fresh and hoppy tasting!

Deschutes - Mirror Mirror Barleywine - Haven't had it in the bottle yet but this was a nice barelywine, almost like an IPA but a little sweeter and maltier, seems like it could use some aging IMO.

I saw they still have Dogfishhead 90 minute IPA which has popped up a few places around town. I think its a good IPA and worth seeking out on tap, but def not as crazy hoppy as alot of people make it out to be.

Also the most impressive bottle selection in all of Vegas. Not the biggest but they;ve got the Unibroue 16 - 17 verticals, THe Firestone 10-12 Anniv, Stone Barleywin 08 + 09, Really great Belgians like Castille, and couple other belgians I've only seen in California (stuffed sandwich)

The most important thing is the fact that these beers tasted fresh and that the lines (taps) were clean. Besides "32" in the M casino almost every other beer bar in vegas does not take care of their lines proper with the exception of the local breweries. I pretty much stopped going to yardhouse due to dirty/stale lines.

Pricewise the beers on tap wern't too overpriced but if you want a cocktail or milkshake with liqour be prepared to shell out some dough. My wife ordered a coffee liquour milkshake for $11 and it was half whip cream and not enough liqour to give her a buzz. THe worst part is they served it in the smallest glass I've ever seen a shake served in. Pretty much a rip-off! Almost a punch in the face!
And a kobe beef burger for $17 just is not worth it to me.
Although I'm sure it's one of the better burgers you can get in town. I'm just not down with the whole trendy gourmet burger fad.

Overall as a local I'm very happy this place exists.

The bartender said they will be getting local brewery Tenaya Creeks new seasonal - a hoppy red ale I think? (2,138 characters)
