During it's heyday this was one of our favorite restaurants. It used to be really crowded and you got to know the wait staff. But before they tore it down business had dropped off and it just seemed sort of old. Even then we went there every few months. They seemed to have a high turnover in staff and they... More

My fiancé and I used to love to go here. He is a big fan of craft beers and loved the beer and atmosphere at Hops. Sadly, they closed and another steak restaurant is being (re)built in its place.

Bummer, it was awesome while it lasted for quite a number of years, but now it's closed, along with the craft beer brewed on site...replaced by a national chain, which will never match up!

Don't bother - they shut down a few weeks ago, just disappeared over night. I think they were just slightly over-priced and had settled for easy generic previously frozen food.

My colleagues recommended Hops and being a beer affocianado, as my expanding waistline testifies, I can recommend this wholeheartedly. The microbrews are excellent and a great way to wash down the excellent food. Come and enjoy!

The food has always been great here and they have excellent root beer that they make themselves! I've been here numerous times when I'm in the area on business and I have never been disappointed. The service has always been excellent as well!

I will not be going back. I have been there twice and both times was not impressed. The food is just not any good. The service is ok. Just find something better. Go to NoDa Brwery for beer!

After staying close to Hops in the past I always chose something else. There is a great drink selection here and food has been good. The warm sweet rolls served with every meal are awesome!!! This is a recommended stop for me and also recommended by the locals. You won't be disappointed.
