Dining room was not open at 6:00 PM but could order food in the bar area. Full menu was provide and it worked out great. Attentive service. Food served relatively quickly. Everything worked just fine this time. That has not always been the case. While we would have rather been in the dining room the bar area was OK because... More

We tried to eat at Hound's for the third time in a couple of months. It was a Wed night and we visited after church was over (8:10-8:25 timeframe). Upon walking in, the barkeep informed us, "The kitchen is already closed," before we could even sit down. What bar closes their kitchen that early? Sadly enough, we do like the... More

Our server vanished into thin air. Took care of another table that came in after us. When he finally came over he was kind of rushing us. We ordered 3 burgers and a grilled cheese for a 1 year old. The grill cheese cost more than the burgers did. The service was horrid. Didn't even refill drinks until asked. Poor... More

The first time, we went for stuffed burgers. Wife received the wrong one. When we told the server, she disagreed that it was incorrect, and we had to really insist. Tip: Cheddar and swiss aren't even the same color. We went back for the regular menu, and had an excellent time. We will go again, I'm sure, but I'm still... More

Fantastic burgers and one night a week stuffed burgers with a huge amount of choices that are all great. This place never seems super busy but everything is always great.

This eatery was a little difficult to find as it sits in a plaza off Galena Blvd but it is worth the search and now that we have found Hounds, we will be returning frequently. My husband grew up in Wisconsin and enjoyed weekly fish fries so he has been searching for a fish fry that compares to his childhood... More

My family and I came to this restaurant to have a nice meal before going to the theater. Oh my god ! The girl that was supposed to be the waitress had no idea about the questions I asked about items on the menu. Her reply to me was "I don't know because no one ever orders that." I ordered... More
