Friday Night Happy Hour

We went there on a Friday night for their happy hour (which is from 4pm-10pm) and had excellent service sitting at the bar. It was busy but service was good and the food was excellent. We ordered a few sushi rolls which were so-so, but the pretzels and coal oven wings were excellent.

A very nice atmosphere, the Baby Back Ribs were the best I've ever had, and a very large portion. The presentation of the food was very nice, and the wait staff very friendly and attentive.

Great aps, great service, fun atmosphere? We visited on a Friday where drinks where half even if you sat in a booth. There were many aps to choose from and we were so full that we did not need a meal...even took leftovers from aps

On a rainy evening, we came to Hemingway's after hearing positive reviews from locals. Upon entering, the waitress sat us down in a far corner of the restaurant, away from most people. We were not dressed inappropriately for the restaurant, and felt a bit offput by this. The waitress then never came back. Ever. After waiting 15 minutes for our... More

Great menu, the sushi was delish! However, my main entree contained what seemed like part of plastic bag that I hoped was from the Parmesan cheese in my dish. They did comp my meal which I didn't ask them to do so that was very professional and appreciated. I would definitely go back here.
