“Good”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Sunday brunch was good. We had a group so they could of had more than one person helping our group to ease the getting of drinks, etc. The waitress could of been on top of it a little more as we trickled in. Food was good tho!

“Better than we expected”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

The Hitching Post was long known for so-so food at cheap prices and that seemed to work for them. Now, the latest owners offer excellent food at reasonable prices. We happened to retry it summer of 12 and have been going back ever since. Nice atmosphere, great service with friendly staff and really good steaks and seafood on par with the Dell Bar in our opinion. They also have a pretty good salad bar. I have been recommending this place to my friends but am a little afraid that everybody will find out how good it is and make it crazy like Cimaroli's. But until then, we will keep going back.

“Ok food”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Don't order the Mexican it is awful. Nothing authentic about it. I think they use Pace picante sauce and cheap chips. Burritoes are awful. I think the steaks are probably a better bet.

“It is worth getting off I-94/90 to drive into Portage!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Yes, it is 5 miles off I-90/94, but if you are hungry and don't want fast food, the HItching Post is the stop!!! The 4 of us tried different items on the menu and all were very happy with our choices. Our server was friendly, helpful and very prompt! With most entrees, you get the salad bar and there you will have an array of salads, 2 soup choices, and their famous "corn fritters with honey butter! From the bowl of soup, to the Buffalo Burger, to a steak, or the shrimp and perch dinner, it was all very good!!! Don't forget to have a piece of their homemade pie!!! I had the coconut cream.....so good!!

“Great Place, Good Food, Excellent Service, Reasonable Prices...”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We haven't been here in a few years. We went when it has new ownership. I remember it being cramped and cluttered. It was nice and open. The food is great, the service is great, nice little place to venture to.
