I found Hempen Hill when a friend was working at a nearby business. This was just about a year ago and now this is my go-to restaurant. The service is great; the staff know the menu and answer questions, particularly about the variety of craft beers on tap. The smoked chicken wings are the best ever (the blue cheese dressing,...

The whole family loved their meals! The smokey flavor of the wings gave them such a unique and delicious flavor. The Pit Beef was tender and tasty with 3 choices of BBQ to choose from on the table. The Chorizo sandwich was amazing and packed with flavor. The smoked turkey club with smoked bacon was so good too. Lots of... More

I found out about Hempen Hill about a year ago and it is now my go to place. If I want a great meal at a fair price I don't know of any better. I've searched for a long time to find a place to become a regular, this is it hands down!

I could say not a single bad thing about this place. Quick service (especially on a busy Saturday evening), and a friendly atmosphere. The BBQ is the real deal.... those trophies are displayed for a reason.

We go here 3-4 times per year and it had been awhile. There were a lot of not positive changes to the menu. The menu had stickers all over it/maybe 1/2 of the menu was being discontinued. We use to get this great plate of all their different bar b ques and split it because it was such a generous... More

HH is our favorite local restaurant and we have excellent service and food every single time we've come over the last 6.5 years. We usually go every few months. We booked their private room( free of charge, which is an amazing deal) for my husband's 40th bday for 14 people. It was a wonderful experience, with excellent service and food.... More

I love the food and the exceptional menu, service has always been first class too and the prices are in line with the quality of the table fare...but I don't go anymore. The acoustics are harsh which allows sound to rattle around and creates a very noisy atmosphere. I like to have quiet conversation with my dinner. Not going to... More
