The service was good, they were attentive and provided speedy service. The real downfall was the food. Specifically I had the fish taco's and on the second occasion the blacked salmon BLT. The fish taco's were served with a black bean salad and a relish or salsa of sorts, the problem was no matter how you doctored the taco's they were bland (with the exception of over use of cilantro). The obvious missing ingredient was something acidic such as lemon or lime. Even vinegar in the slaw bed would have made it better. Second the salmon BLT, I guess an overall bad idea as it was impossible eat as every bite would squirt the mushy salmon out the sides. Not impressed at any price!

I have been here a few times now and have found the service a tad bit slow and the prices a bit on the high side. But the two redeeming qualities, by which I measure a restaurant, that this joint has are friendly servers and just simply phenomenal food. The price, then, is after all, worth it!!

I'll admit that I haven't dined here in a while. That's because this particular Hamburger Hamlet is/was legendary for extremely slow service, even when near empty. I wonder if this issue has been addressed. Having said that, the food was always good, and it's one of the nicest dining spaces in the Underground.

I've been to Hamburger Hamlet with my family on several occasions and we always enjoy the food and atmosphere. Good selection, great children's menu, and attentive service make the experience enjoyable and hassle-free. There's also a nice sunroom/bar area. Can be quite crowded on weekend evenings, but our family has usually been seated fairly quickly even on busy nights. A good choice for tasty, simple food in Bethesda at a reasonable price.

This place is simply not good, the only redeeming quality is that they have cold beer. Better off eating at elsewhere and spending $4 on a sandwich instead of $20 on a subpar meal.
