“Extremely pleasant setting and delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2010

We found this restaurant a year ago and when driving back from Mt Pisgah today, decided to stop for lunch. It had been raining, but still pleasant, so we opted to sit on their inviting front patio underneath the awning. The setting is delightful.
I ordered the Coconut Curry Risotto with Jumbo Shrimp ($14) with asparagas and tomatoes. The enormous portion of risotto was cooked to perfection and the coconut curry sauce could not have been more delicious. There were a nice number of perfectly cooked, tender shrimp on top and enough diced tomatoes in the risotto to warrant adding them to the menu. The two or so 2 inch long grass like pieces of asparagas I managed to find in the risotto were not sufficient to add to the name of the dish. If you aren't going to add asparagas, don't say you are.
We also ordered the French bread with chimichurri olive oil ($2) which was interesting in flavor and texture and the bread was excellent.
Even though it was a very rainy Saturday, the inside of the restaurant was packed. The waitress took our order promptly, our food arrived in a reasonable amount of time, but once we were finished we had to wait a very long time for our bill and then again wait for her to come back to accept our payment. Maybe they were slammed inside.
All in all, it was a very favorable dining experience and I would certainly go back.
Oh, an important note: if you have a dog, it can sit outside with you as you eat on the patio.

“Best location for lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2010

This was definitely the right location for a nice peaceful lunch away from the main drag and constant 'chirping' of the crosswalk signals. The outside atmosphere was pleasant when the kids were not around. The food was definitely very good but unfortunately we had a slow waitress plus she brought us the wrong soups we ordered.. Too bad because it would have made for a better overall rating. The sandwiches were top notch.

“Top quality food in a small town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2010

I have dreamed about the bread pudding at Hob Nob's . We were driving home from Charleston to Cincinnati and had to make a stop in Brevard just to go to Hob Nob's. The Bruscetta is so refreshing with the delicious side salad. The roasted chicken with red potatoes and asparagus was the best my husband had ever eaten. I had the seafood lasgana and couldn't believe my mouth...I call an experience at Hob Nob's my Happy Mouth Time. I wish they were here in Cincinnati. I haven't had this quality of food in Charleston or Cincinnati. Keep up the good cooking.....we will be back.
