“Best bbq in Htown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Screamin wings with homemade chunky blue cheese, are really good, and chorizo burger is awesome. Not many places to choose from in hagerstown for BBQ, so this is the best by default. Not a huge fan of ribs, chicken but that because I like wet ribs. They use only dry rubs and you choose type of sauce which is squeeze bottles on table.

“Best place in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

I love Hempen Hill. The food is some of the best in town. I have been many times and never disappointed. The specials are always interesting and very tasty. Beer selection is constantly changing and stays fresh. Hempen Hill is a must try if your passing through town or if you've lived here your whole life. Friday and Saturday can get really busy so reservations definitely recommended.

“Good bar b que place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We ate at Hempen Hill recently. I order stew and an appetizer that provided three different meets and my husband had the brisket. Our service was excellent. We were in and out in a jiffy. My stew was really good as was my appetizer although I definitely had enough meat for 2. Hubby raved about the brisket.

“Family holiday party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We love Hempen Hill so much that we had our annual family holiday party here. (They do have private rooms.) Our entire family(about 25 people) really enjoyed the food. The menu has a LOT of choices,which made everyone happy. Of course the barbecue is great, but there are many seafood options too.Everyone loved the food.Our waiter was awesome, he became an honorary member of the family.

“Pretty darn good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

First visit on a recent trip to Hagerstown. Great big menu, good beer...lots of crab and seafood for this non BBQ eater! I got crab soup which was fabulous and scallops, also done well. Don't let the name/strip mall location fool you...very good menu, fun atmosphere.
