“Great food and ice cold beer, but service can be hit or miss.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

We visit Hop Jacks every couple months and love the happy hour, especially for the ice cold beers, boneless chicken wings and icy martinis. Overall a great neighborhood restaurant but service can sometimes be hit or miss. On a couple occasions it's been VERY slow. Overall though, very good hangout and one of the best bar/restaurants in south Lacey.

“Excellent 'on the run' Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Had a window of opportunity to enjoy a nice lunch with my wife today. We're both glad we selected Hop Jack's - an exciting local eatery with an excellent 'inventive' chef. Food was plentiful and tasty. She enjoyed a great fish sandwich, and I tried something INSIDE a restaurant, that I usually see more frequently OUTSIDE a restaurant - street tacos! I was hungry, and curious at the same time. I've eaten many 'street tacos' before, in several cities here in the US, as well as several cities in Mexico. Difference at Hop Jack's? Only one tortilla per taco (streets usually have two corn tortillas per taco). The ones offered at Hop Jacks were every bit as good, and in an important aspect to me, at least, were better than normal - the meat wasn't overcooked!. Fast service, once again, provided by Brooke -- she's the best, and hopefully when she has her baby, and IF she wishes to return, she'll do so, and we can continue getting great service at an excellent restaurant!! Hop Jack's - Recommended~

“nice local gathering place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Food is very good, several delicious burgers and the beer is always ice cold! There is often a wait to get a table but well worth it.

“Great place, great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Hop Jacks is a busy, happening place. It can be loud, service can be slower sometimes due to the volume of business...but it is a great place with good food and reasonable prices. The beer is ice cold - literally. Bar service is good if you are not with young ones. Every item on the appetizer menu is great, especially the tacos. The burgers are good and very filling. The servers and bartenders are friendly and attentive. Breakfast on the weekends is the best in town. My family and I have made this one of our regular hangouts, and we we highly recommend it.
