I popped in last night for dinner and have to give the place the thumbs up.

The fare was great and there were some 13 or 14 staff squeezed into what is a fairly small eatery. What I particularly liked was the attentiveness of the staff and the speed with which the food arrived.

One surprise was that if you order a drink (any drink, be it tea or a beer) the burger is half off after 9PM (at least that was the case on Friday night). This made the bill for two people at just over $20 with tax.

Wow, that's good to know - great post-movie bite! I went about four days in and was really impressed with the quality and selection. I found the burger itself to be a little on the small side (something I've heard from others, too) - but I was definitely full by the end if it. I'll attribute that to the beer and Panko-breaded onion rings I has instead of the fries. Definitely some of the best onion rings in town.

Yup, I'll second the onion ring opinion. They were awesome.

My girlfriend's house salad was alright, too -- for anyone wondering about non-fried sides.

At half off after 9 you simply can't beat the price/quality ratio in this town.

I went here for lunch about a week after they opened. Was good, especially the bun, but other than that wasn't super memorable. I'd go back to check out some of the other burgers though, and I'd definitely go back for the 50% off burgers.

Went there when it opened and was impressed with the Elk Burger. The 50% off after 9pm deal is definitely worth going back for. Strange lounge-type feel for the location, but they seem to make it work.

I got a Bin 4 Burger gift certificate at my staff Xmas party that I'm eager to use.

Based on my experience there the other night you'll be able to put that GC to good use.

Mrs Deeds and I went by on the weekend, there was a 45 minute wait that turned into an hour for people behind us. They took our cell # and gave us a call when the table was ready while we went for a walk. Burgers and fries were great but the onion rings didn't live up to the hype for me though. I suggest the Bison burger, it was fantastic! Reasonably priced for a fancy burger joint.

Ended up here last night. I had the pre-season burger. It was good, but I think I'll be moving on to another menu item next time I drop in.

At about 7PM the place was packed but the rush had died down by about 8.

Coincidentally Solomon Siegel of Solomon's cocktail bar fame (Victoria's first-ever cocktail bar) and son of Howie Siegel came in and sat down next to us at the bar. He said it was his first go at the place.

OT but Solomon will be taking over the bar and lounge at the Marriott, starting pretty soon from what I hear! Great lounge, methnks he will be a great fit, and right across the street from Clive's. :)

It gets packed again after 9. The last couple times I've gone I've made reservations because there end up being a line up for tables after 9.

I guess it's called Bin 4 because Cabin 12 was taken?

Seriously, anyone know why it's called that?

Bins are another name for wine racks above a bar. He likes wine and his favourite number is 4. Seriously. The could have just as easily called it (Dish)Rack 8 or (Cash)Register 3.

^^At least it's memorable. Pop quiz: what was the name of the long-standing cafe that used to be in this location? Uhhhh....

Correct. But I will deduct one point for omitting the accent on the e.
