Gourmet Burger Bistro, Port Jefferson, LI, NY

Look at that burger!  You'll never find one that will be its equal. 

We are at GBB, otherwise known as Gourmet Burger Bistro.  The burger that's in front of me is the Napa Valley burger that Rob and I shared.  The meat is marinated in cabernet with a minced shallot patty. It is topped with fresh basil, red onion, tomatoes and Monterey  Jack cheese with a pesto mayo.
 It's also served with lots of delicious onion strings and  a pickle.  The fries are served separately, but believe me, you get plenty of onion strings and that fits the bill.  If you do get the fries,  which is what we did the second time we were there, you won't be disappointed.  Everything there is delicious.  That night, Susan had Spinach Feta burger without the bun (and you have three choices to choose from, btw) which is a chicken patty mixed with crumbled spinach and feta and covered in cucumber yogurt sauce.  Yum yum. 

GBB was started in 2008 and is family owned and operated.  In a time when burgers were gaining in popularity, GBB had only one goal in mind and that was to "serve the finest burgers with the freshest ingredients."  Each burger is made to order and is uniquely all their own creations. They have a wide selection to choose from, chicken, turkey, veggie or seafood. And I can tell you that their crabcake burger is phenomenal!  You can even build your own burger and it can be done at affordable prices.

Only one side of the eating area
It is located in beautiful and historic Port Jefferson, which overlooks Long Island Sound. Walk around the town, shop, watch the ferries arrive and depart, but most of all soak up some history. This town is famous for it. Then sit back and enjoy the finest burgers this town has to offer. 

The other side of the bistro
All the servers are courteous, friendly and will answer any question that you may have. We didn't have a long wait (and we've been there 3 times already) especially if you are there early and believe me, you will never be disappointed. Mike, owner and chef, is very personable and friendly and will go out of his way to make you feel at home.

This is the owner, Mike.

  1. Okay Clyde, here I go again...I am so jealous of the places that Susan and Rob take you! Although not a burger eater, I would love this place with all the unique burgers they have on their menu. Thanks for sharing!
