As a local, Hopmonk is one of my go-to places for lunch, dinner or drinks. The food is tasty and fresh (I highly recommend the black bean samosas), the beer choices are great and the beer garden is my favorite place to sit with friends in town for a drink -- either around the fountain or the fire pit, often...

Such a great local spot. Food is yummy and fresh. We had the fish and chips, french onion soup and a delicious mix of veggies lightly stir fried. The atmosphere is homey and cozy. Wait staff super nice. And if that isn't enough, prices are very reasonable. Plus you can bring dogs, I hear! What's not to love????

Prior to the winter holidays, Love Choir, a local group, were invited in to Hop Monk to have a caroling sing-along...We were delighted to find a very welcoming stage and seating area, under cover from the weather...In addition, there was a huge fire ring where we could sit while not performing...And the food was great, including gluten free. Lots of... More

Love all of the choices of beer and the food is excellent; especially some of the appetizers. The service was good and very friendly. All in all a great experience and would definitely keep this as a go to restaurant.

When we walked in the hostess asked to sit in or out. Well we decided inside as the weather was brisk and overcast. The wait would be 15 min yet there were several booths open. After a party of 11 came in the hostess mentioned the wait time and it would be outside but it was covered and heated. I... More

Been wanting to check this popular hot spot for a while. Good location with parking if you get there early enough on a Friday night. Otherwise, there's parking on Main Street. I was looking for gluten free items and chose the risotto. I didn't expect such a large plate of it and I split it with my sister who had... More

We like HopMonk a lot. Great local pub, and very nice variety of menu items for the entire family. One of my favs is the taco trio. The kale salad, sliders, all delicious. Very good selection of beers. A big negative is lack of live music free to customers. We don't Often want to stay much later and pay again... More

The outside decor is aesthetically pleasing! It is perfect for dinner or a special occasion. (I think there was a rehearsal dinner the night we ate there.) The food was also fantastic. We have told a lot of friends about this place and we will definitely go back if we are in that area again.

This was a nice little "bar/tavern" and was obviously a locals favorite as it was pretty busy for a Tuesday night and most people seemed to know each other. Food was good, service was prompt, so it was a good choice not far from our hotel. Menu was not extensive but had some good choices.

Lively tavern/diner with live music the day we visited for dinner. Food was good very tasty and better than other brewery/diners we have been in recently. Beer very good too and service was speedy but relaxed. Atmosphere great and outside seating comfortable. Well worth a visit also seemed popular with the locals always a good sign.

Thank Bob H
