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

I have been going to the hob nob for more than twenty years. It is one short block from my house, so very convenient for me. Honestly the only gripe I have is the last 3 or four visits the hash browns have been hard as a rock. Can get busy around 9am on Saturday and Sunday

My spouse and I stopped in after a particularly stressful medical office visit and found ourselves enjoying a solid breakfast experience. I had classic Eggs Benedict done just right with a soft poach. Spouse had biscuits and gravy. His biscuit bottom was too tough to cut so that's why only 4 stars. Our service was prompt and friendly. We'll be... More

This is one of my 2 most favorite breakfast places. If you are in the Tacoma, WA area you have to stop here for breakfast and try the Dungeness Crab Benedict. They are VERY generous with crab portion size. You will get two large helpings of crab on top of two english muffins. The eggs are then cooked to the... More

We visited this restaurant on a Sunday morning (roughly around 11am). The wait wasnt bad; we were probably seated 5 minutes after arriving. But our timeliness and positive attitude all changed after that. It took our waitress 10 minutes to bring us our water and another 10 to take our order. This caused other customers to get up from their... More

When I first read the reviews I was skeptical to even go here. But it is where my niece wanted to have her "special time" with her aunts before her wedding. They do not take reservations, but I called anyway and spoke to Jeannie, who understood that we would need tables pushed together for our party of 12. She appreciated... More

A Group of us went out on a Friday evening. The restaurant was not very crowded we were greeted and sat promptly by the hostess. The service was okay but when we got our food my steak was overcooked, the Clam chowder was more like "bacon chowder" with more bacon in it than clams and it was like a pepper... More
