These burgers beckon with piled-high toppings and a beer to boot. Finish off the meal with a one-of-a-kind ice cream creation.

Loowit Brewing & Treat Vancouver

The simple burger-and-beer combo speaks volumes at Loowit Brewing in downtown Vancouver. Wash down a BOMB (bacon, onion, mushroom, bleu cheese) burger with a classic Shadow Shinobi IPA made with Pacific Northwest hops—you won’t be disappointed. 

Handcrafted in small batches, Treat Vancouver sources only the best ingredients for their seasonal flavors—like Freckled Peanut Butter using all-natural PB and Jacobsen Salt Co. sea salt, or the vegan Vanilla Oat Milk Chai featuring tea brewed by local Great North Coffee. You’ll smell the homemade waffle cones a block away! 

McMenamins & The Yard Milkshake Bar

Whether it’s the Hammerhead BBQ sauce on the Backyard Burger or the Tillamook cheddar on the classic cheeseburger, the homemade and local influences make themselves known on McMenamins on the Columbia’s patties (which also come in elk, vegan, and garden varieties). Sip on a Hammerhead Ale overlooking the Columbia River to round out the experience. 

Follow the river west to find The Yard Milkshake Bar for essentially another whole meal. These mason jar concoctions come with full cheesecake slices, peanut butter brownies, or chocolate chip cookie sandwiches piled on top for a creation worthy of any Instagram snapshot. 

Stack 571 

Don’t let the tall burgers at Stack 571 intimidate you. Bring your confidence to take in all the rich flavors of the Three Pepper (fried jalapeño, roasted pepper, and pepper jack cheese) or Truffle Mushroom, complete with Cambozola, tempura-fried parmesan oyster mushrooms, garlic-herb Boursin cheese, and baby kale. While Stack specializes in whiskey, they also make their own Hefeweizen, blonde ale, and IPA—pair one with whiskey for a $2 Beer Back. 

Skip the hops and head straight for one of Stack 571’s boozy milkshakes! Channel your inner child with a Lucky Charms S’mores shake with a shot of brandy, or get the best of Washington and Oregon with a WA Triple Berry shake infused with Rose City Vodka.

Grays & Short & Sweet

Explore the culinary delights of Grays, located in the Hilton Vancouver in downtown Vancouver. This contemporary gastropub serves up a delicious range of Northwest dishes along with a great selection of local craft beers, regional wines, and handcrafted cocktails. Grays has earned a spot on the 2023 Portland Mercury's Burger Week list (now ended) and continues to serve a variety of delicious burgers on their regular menu.

After indulging in a specialty burger, take a walk to Short & Sweet located on Main Street. Their motto, "Life is short, so make it sweet!" rings true with their selection of delicious boba teas. Try the Okinawa milk tea, which boasts a roasted brown sugar flavor, and is topped off with crème brûlée, egg pudding, and boba. Trust us, you'll be hooked! It's like having dessert in a cup.

Brickhouse & Ice Cream Renaissance

At Brickhouse, you can treat yourself to a variety of delicious burgers that showcase the chefs' creative skills. Experience a medley of flavors with their weekly specials and menu favorites, ranging from the Vegan Beyond Western Burgers to the impressive Cheezus Christ—a bacon cheeseburger nestled between two grilled cheese sandwiches (pictured). In the past, they've also offered unique specials such as the Salmon Burger with a spicy habanero glaze and the Vancouver Fat Boy, which includes double beef patties, and glazed pork belly.

Up the street, feel the energy at Ice Cream Renaissance in Uptown Village, always serving up scoops with a smile. Also handmade in small batches, their flavors pack a punch, and you may find one you’ve never tried before, like honey lavender or blackberry basil bourbon. 

Hudson’s Bar & Grill & Angel's Donuts 

After a day of traveling, there's nothing more appealing than a satisfying burger that's easily accessible. Just take the elevator downstairs at The Heathman Lodge to Hudson's Bar & Grill, where you can enjoy Wagyu beef with traditional toppings. The restaurant offers delectable cuisine and a range of local wines in a cozy, friendly ambiance. The Executive Chef creates Pacific Northwest comfort food in a relaxed, rustic setting. The menu features a range of seasonal dishes that are just as imaginative as the lodge's decor.

Nearby head to a local favorite, Angels Donuts & Ice Cream—a beloved family-owned establishment that's been dishing up fresh-baked donuts, ice cream, and tasty snacks since 2004. Their wide variety of donuts and ice cream flavors are simply delicious! The staff are always friendly, welcoming, and helpful, which makes you want to come back again and again.
