Great for Buffalo lovers and Vegetarians alike!

We went out of our way on a trip to be able to eat here again. First time was about 7 years ago and we remembered our experience - which is amazing considering how many places we go and how poor my memory is!! We loved it once again.

Not a bad bar. Good bourbon selection. Had live music. Didnt eat any food. Was good for a date, a bit loud for a business meeting.

Great atmosphere, very cordial server. Food was okay. Ordered the Bison Burger, Bloody Mary and a local. beer. We made the mistake of telling the server we were going to shar the burger because we weren't that hungry. Burger has a big chunk of gristle and when the bill came we were shocked to see a $10 charge for "sharing"... More

Food is Good depending on the night you go.......when it is great it's great, when it's not it certainly is not. They have a remarkable reputation and award winning chefs, I just wish it was a little more consistent. The bar does pour a heck of a drink though! This is a spendy place for the portion size but worth... More

I have visited the HoDo Lounge multiple times and have always had a great experience (sometimes the service can be a little off, but not enough to deter me and my friends.) The drinks are typically made very well and the selection of wine, house cocktails, and beer is decent. I absolutely love the lamb meatballs and cheese tray -... More

We tried the HoDo again on Sat night. We had excellent service and enjoyed three new dishes-duck, lamb, and bison. All of the food was delicious and we will be back again. Quite expensive but worth it once or twice a year.

Three of us ate there recently with their new menu. We each had a salad--HoDo, Summer, and Watermelon--and each of them was quite tasty. The Watermelon salad was actually the prettiest, but also quite large. For our entrees we had the halibut, the bison hanger, and the vegetable sauté. We were all very pleased with how nicely the food was... More

Visited this place on the recommendation of a local friend. Dinner and a cocktail on a Thursday afternoon at 4. The place was busy and WAY understaffed. Even so, my server made no attempt to hustle and often just ignored me. It's incredibly frustrating to come go to a restaurant, watch others be seated after you and served before you.... More

I really wanted to like this place, because it has such a "hip" vibe to it and it came recommended. I just can't give it my top score though, because the service was really not up to par. It was ten minutes form the time I was seated until my waiter arrived, then ten more minutes for him to return... More
