My boyfriend always orders a burger and really likes them. They have everything from sushi to burgers to salads BUT they do it all well is what... More

OK food, but got my orders incorrect 3 out of 3 times I ordered! They promptly corrected it, but entailed waiting another 10 minutes to get the food that I ordered correct

I've been here a few times for brunch and lunch. The menu is quite large and the food I've tried have been mediocre but the nachos are delish! The chips are housemade and the regular order is massive, so get a half order if you're not too hungry. A half order is perfect for sharing as a starter as well.

I met a friend early evening at Hub 51; he suggested it because it was near my hotel. The food was fine. Nothing exceptional, but not bad. The atmosphere was OK; not what I'd choose (a bit noisy and I have some hearing issues), but then again it was really much more of a young professional place and I'm too... More

We chose this restaurant for dinner with an out of town guest on a whim. What a lovely surprise. Great variety on the menu and easily able to satisfy a gluten free palate. Will definitely return. I highly recommend.

Within 5 minutes of my recent dinner at Hub 51 I expected that my review would be no better than 3-stars. I did not like the atmosphere of the place. It is noisy and the industrial floor and bland color scheme gives the restaurant a stark, cold feel that is not inviting. However, by the end of my meal I... More

We went to Hub 51 for lunch on 12/30 and sat in the bar area. The Server ( sorry I forgot your name), was great. Offered suggestions on food and drinks. Was very attentive and didn't rush us. We split a bowl of turkey chili which was very good. Fresh and not too spicy. Just the right amount of beans.... More

Service is always top notch at Hub 51 and every time we've dined here, we are impressed with the quality of the food. From the sushi to the huge mound of chicken nachos--which are to die for--every dish is delicious! Drinks are generously poured as well!

Great selection of food and very tasty. It's quite large, with a big bar and seating selection. They don't take themselves very seriously, especially if you read their menu.

My husband and I ate dinner here on NYE. This was our first time here. I ordered the lobster tacos and they were delicious. My husband had the pulled chicken nachos, but substituted the chicken for braised short ribs. He loved it and the portion was huge. Hub 51 is in a great location and the food and service was...
