Good Place for Mid-Week Dinner

This is diner food, one of the several restaurants owned by the same people in the area. This is one of their best. Very pleasant dining room with large windows that look out onto Wright Park and a small but lively bar. We like their home-made wine. Service is attentive without rushing you. They... read more

We went to this restaurant expecting to find a great local fare, but was surprised to find just the opposite. According to reviews, this place was a local favorite. Not so, my daughter's eggs came to the table cold. We asked to have the problem fixed, so they microwaved the dish. Prices for average food brought a whopping bill of... More

The Hob Nob is not a fancy restaurant, but the food is always good. I have never eaten anything there that was not excellent. The portions are large and the prices are reasonable. It is a solid place to go on a Friday or Saturday evening for a good meal.

My friends and I came here one Friday night. I was surprised that it was not busy at all, but if that's the scene you're looking for, this is your place. The drinks, from what I can remember, were good, although we did not stay here too long.

This is a nice little grill right across from Wright Park, which is a great visit. They have good lunch menu with lots of old favorites. The bar is small and quiet, with well poured drinks. Worth a visit if you are at the park.

The Hob Nob has been around since I was a kid and was the place to go. We happened to be in that end of town last week and thought about the Hob Nob, so pulled it up on Trip Advisor and was so disappointed to read all the poor reviews, but we decided to give it a try. It... More

My husband and I have been going to Hob Nob for breakfast on the weekends for several months now, we have noticed in the last couple months that the atmosphere and food has drastically changed for the worst. I'll start with the food, it seems that they are always out of several items, the food portions have shrunk and it... More

I went to the Hob Nob for breakfast recently with a friend visiting from Riyadh. We walked to the Hob Nob from my place, about twenty minutes, to build up an appetite and we were glad we did. My friend had the biscuits and gravy, a menu item not available where he lives, and I had the vegetarian skillet. While... More
