It seems like a cool place, but their hours of operation are bizzare and they never seem to be open. The first time I went the atmosphere was really cool, the beer and soup were great, but the cheese sandwich came out cold and un-melted. The second time I went it was jam packed and the live music they had... More

We've been by Hiram Haines Restaurant and Bar and it is never open....Not sure what else to say. I want to try the place but can't seem to ever get there when it is open.

My only meal here was very good and reasonably priced. Desert was good to very good. It is obvious that a great deal of thought is expressed in this restaurant. Service was excellent. The ambiance is delightful and quiet though there was music with vocals. The seating was really comfortable and conversation was accentuated by the arrangement. The absence of... More

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by our first visit to Hiram Haines. We both got the evening special, which was beef stew, It was loaded with fresh vegetables and succulent, well seasoned pieces of beef. The stew was surrounded by a sweet potato and mashed potatoes, more than enough for even the heartiest of appetites. We topped the... More

We stopped here for coffee and dessert and were not disappointed with either. The coffee was a special house blend served in a French Press. We had a lemon cheesecake sort of dessert that was super. The ambience is tremendous, with books and paintings/pictures lining the walls.

Hiram Haines has become a favorite pit stop for any night out for my wife and I. While we don't normally spend the whole evening at Hiram Haines we really enjoy our short visits for a beer and a snack. Their fruit and cheese platters are the perfect way to calm an appetite mid-afternoon walking through historic Petersburg, and a... More

This is a wonderful place for a nice bite to eat! The sandwiches are great, the atmosphere is cozy, and the staff is always wonderful! The history of the actual building only adds to the experience!

We were getting our hair done at the nearby LeRouge Hair Lounge and asked our stylist where we could get a quick bite to eat. Without hesitation she said Hiram Haines and suggested the chicken salad. We took her advice and did not regret it. The chicken salad was absolutely delicious as was the dessert. Yum!

Thank you to the staff at Hiram Haines! The food was delicious and the teas and coffees were amazing! Fast and friendly service and a quiet little place to settle in with a good book or meet up with friends! Loved the Poe atmosphere!

After riding around the battlefield on our bikes we were looking for coffee, both hot and cold. We were pleasantly surprised at the fabulous coffee shop - such a visual delight and the cold coffee was great, and my husband's french press coffee was excellent. Be sure to look up when you go into the back room. Wish I lived... More
