About a hundred yards from Newport Beach Brewing. Upscale burgers with a pretty good draft list, just like any other number of restaurants in the same vain these days. Service was friendly, the place was well kept, but didnít eat as I wasnít in the mood for a $15 burger meal. Definitely has a nice variety to the draft list, but you probably wonít find much of anything you havenít seen around the area.

Best Place I found by far in Newport Beach. I would recommend this place over the neighborhood brewpubs, which I also checked out. The neighborhood brewpub had the usual lineup of mediocre beers, and a clientele more interested in getting a Bud or a Miller lite as the local offering. Crow Burger, by comparison, had a varied and unique set of taps that for an east coast person like me was exceptional. The usual Green Flash and Stone, but also a lot of small California breweries that I had never tried before, like the Drakes Pale Ale (very dry and very hoppy) and a couple DIPAs I forget. And the burgers (beef, Poultry and Veggie) were GREAT! Expensive, but very high quality. the staff was enthusiastic (if a bit spacy). Yes it was next to a Chipolte, and the outddoor seating was a bit strip-mallish, but the vibe was fun and I had a great time on both visits. The best place I could find in the Newport Beach/Laguna Beach area.
