4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our 40th Class reunion was held at Hemingway's Café. I had never been there before this event. I was pleasantly surprised by how big the interior of the place was with many rooms, and bars. The buffet was very good, all the food I tried was tasty. I had salmon, chicken and beef. The side dishes were all good too.

Eat here for happy hour - most appetizers are good - would recommend the sushi- front desk girls do not treat you as a priority nor or they too courteous. Most waiters are good.

I was a guest to this restaurant. I had not seen my friend for a while so we had a lot to talk about. There was a wait. They took our name but we decided to sit at one of the high tables at one of the three bars. The atmosphere is great here. They have televisions to watch sports... More

Went there for first time. Sorry to say but disappointed. Ordered half rack ribs, and that is all I got! no coleslaw or fries. Wife ordered filet mignon rare with baked potato. Got a piece of meat that a cow would be embarrassed to give up. It came out on a bed of garlic mashed potato.Sent it back and got... More

The worst dinner ever. Horrible service. Manager was not responsive until we got up to complain. We are frequent dinners but after tonight we will not be back. It is unfortunate that they didn't think to comp the meal for their forgetting to dinners meals

Recently took my brother here for dinner . The service was slow but the waiter was nice . I had the Sushi/ Sashimi combo . The presentation was horrid and would cause a real Sushi chef to be embarrassed . The quality of the fish was second rate and the freshness highly questionable . Imitation crab and tiny shrimp were... More

We went to Hemingway's for dinner on Saturday. The hostess was overwhelmed and rude (several people walked out while we were waiting). Once we were seated our waiter was polite and we loved the menu. The atmosphere was great and the food was even better. We will definitely be back.

After a long day we were looking to go out for a nice dinner and Hemingway's was recommended to us by our hotel manager. We were seated rather quickly. There were two hostesses - one taking names and one seating people. The one seating people was very personable and on the ball about table availability. The food was pretty good... More

Great food - everything was fresh and delicious. However, the waitstaff is another story. Ours was not familiar with menu, unsure of ingredients. They have billiards table and live entertainment.
