Not sure what the concept is here...fair selection of beer...Vermont has a bustling beer scene yet wasn't represented very well...nor was Western or even Eastern Ma represented very well. The food was OK...kind of cold...very small portion for the price..just cauliflower for my mom was kinda strange...maybe throw in a starch ? Was impressed last visit...not this time...and Maria try... More

Took some friends here (they are in their 40s). The waitstaff refused to serve them unless they showed their passports. They do look good for 40, but are both going gray and DO NOT look under 30. They drove back to their hotel, got their passports, and were finally allowed to be served. When we ordered the waiter was cold... More

When we arrived there were only two other parties in the bar. No one even acknowledged our entrance, long enough for me to contemplate leaving. Once they came the service was fine, not great. We had a cocktail & cheese plate that was very nice. It could be a great place with a bit of employee training.

A delightful dinner with friends started with the best mussels we have ever had, a whipped goat cheese small plate and grilled asparagus. Wines and beers are well curated and the waiters knowledgeable and helpful in selection. Creative cocktails, too! The salmon dinner was perfection with beers and pickled carrots but the standout was the roasted cauliflower main dish -... More

Food was not good, service was worse. When you try to raise allergy concerns the staff and manager cannot keep your kids safe

From other reviews, I expected the menu to be more about choosing hops (beer) or vines (wine). As best I could tell, this was not the case and I did not find their beer or wine list particularly impressive. I did enjoy my cocktail. The food was average for the fairly high prices, and our waiter was not particularly friendly.... More

Mediocre New American at fine dining prices. These people just don't know how to run a restaurant. (They serve oysters all summer long. They are disgusting!) Been going there for years, and each time someone says, "Let's meet at Hops.", I know that it is only because of the location. The food is hit or miss. It can be good,... More

We are here after rehearsal for a friends wedding. The food was phenomenal and we are foodies. The wine and drink selection is really appropriate and tasteful as well. Great time. Great food.

We really enjoyed eating here. The food was tasty and thoughtfully prepared, the service was attentive and flexible, and the atmosphere was highly conducive to relaxed conversation among our large group, some of whom were meeting each other for the first time. Especially accommodating to the small child in our party. Overall, a very positive experience which we would repeat... More

Not a bad place to eat or drink, but it is not quite as good as it appears it would like to be. A large selection of beers on tap and most of them are just not good beer, in my humble opinion. To many gadgety micro brews like bourbon or maple flavored. If I wanted maple syrup tasting beer... More
