“Best in tally”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

I've been looking for a great restaurant in Tally for years and finally found it. Sat at the bar and had the highly recommended Mac n cheese- I will never think of Mac n cheese the same-absolutely delicious. Also had the beef sliders- they were fantastic. Great beer and wine selection. Bartender has great personality and makes everyone feel at home. Highly recommend and will become my go to place when in town.

“Love going here...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Clusters and Hops has become our favorite place to go. We have tried virtually everything on the menu and never have been disappointed. Right now my fav is the Goat Cheese Sandwich...grilled eggplant, goat cheese and fig jam, the combination is unforgettable. I can't wait to go back, we take all our out of town guests here to sample their wonderful fare.

FYI---Avoid Cool Beanz, we feel that the people writing the reviews must be paid off, been there once and never again and it definitely does not deserve the rank of #1 or #2. Dirty place, go see for yourself!

“Outstanding from start to finish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We read about this restaurant online and went there this past weekend as we were staying nearby at the Hotel Duvall. The restaurant is a quick walk from the hotel. We arrived and went to the bar. The bartender/waiter offered us a wine list and said we could select something from there or pick a bottle from their store. We purchased from the store. We were told the wait would be about 30-45 minutes. Not bad since it was prime dinner time and the restaurant has maybe 15 tables. We started with a few appetizers - the truffle mac and cheese and the bruschetta. They were both mouthwateringly delicious. Our main courses were the pan seared ahi tuna and the beef tenderloin medallions. Again both were fantastic, but I liked my tuna the best. The atmosphere is very laid back and quiet. This restaurant is a great find for any town, let alone a college town.

“Wonderful Surprise! Fabulous Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

The chef here won Chopped on Food Network if that gives you a hint!...I got a bottle of Merrivale Carneros Chardonnay 2009 for $27.99. It is a great price for that wonderful wine. It tasted magnificent and they chilled it to the perfect temperature. Small corkage fee of $8.50.

We the ordered the Quesadilla of Duck and grilled apple, their famous truffle Mac-n-cheese, fresh buffalo mozzarella caprese salad and herb and espresso crusted filet mignon medalions. All were presented artfully and the preparation was executed perfectly. I think they should call their Mac-n-cheese Cheese-n-mac instead though. The flavors were absoluty magnificent.

This place is in a strip mall at one end. You think you are walking into a wine and cheese store, and you are, but when you walk through it you are in a restaurant with a bar and about 10-12 tables. The decor is not why you are there so get over it quickly...You are there because you can pick out a fabulous bottle of wine from the store front with very affordable prices and have them serve it to you. You are also there for the food you will absolutely love.

If you like to hang at the bar with good friends stop in just for the bar. You will meet some wonderful locals! I loved meeting Michelle, Jerry and Elroy! They also have a huge selection of wonderful craft beers and heavenly cheeses you haven't seen before. Take some home with you!
