Menu selection is really good (though they’ve taken a break from their”celebrity burger”; not a big deal, but that was always fun). Staff is friendly, and the place is always clean. The selection of draught beer is certainly broad enough.”
“Good quality. A little pricey but worth it for the quality. Service was excellent but there were only 3 tables besides us. Wife and I split the beet salad which was really good. It was taco Thursday when we went so I ordered one of each taco and all were very tasty. Wife got a ranch something burger and she enjoyed it.”

“Very good service. They followed all protocols for health that I could see, everyone was wearing a mask and I could see that every once in awhile they used hand sanitizer. I had the effing fish sandwich and it was the best fish sandwich I have ever had in my life. The only thing that I have to say is that my fries were not salted when they arrived, I like them salted when hot. it’s a small nitpick and was resolved at the table. My friend had the boar burger and she enjoyed hers as much as I enjoyed mine. Highly recommended! 👍”
“We were at the south side location. Food was fabulous all around, the beer tap list is small but absolutely top notch. I had the boar bacon Swiss which was absolutely mouth watering. The rings are also very noteworthy, delicious fish style batter paired with large sweet onion loops done perfectly; the batter puffy and the onion having the right amount of crispness! (I am above all else an onion ring connoisseur!) Our server Jordan was the perfect mix of attentive without being intrusive. Best burger experience in Edmonton!”

I stopped in and the place is beautiful, and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Amazing gluten free options, even dessert! I had a regular burger and fries and they were fantastic. I will be going here from now on when I have a craving for that kind of comfort food.”
“Went to burger village mid week, just found it through a random google search. I would go back over and over again to try all their options. I got their wild boar burger with Cajun fries and both were so delicious. I love that they have different types of meat (elk, salmon, bison, etc). Really good variety.
