On our way back home, we stopped in, and we were so glad we did. It's a cute little pub that is, in fact, on the hill. He ordered the Smoked Brisket Mac & Cheese bowl, and that may have been the best brisket we've had in quite some time. I ordered the @StPatricksDay special - a Rueben sandwich made with some amazingly delicious corned beef on golden toasted Rye bread. I also had an old fashioned which was well made, and he had a sour from Pfreim.

The staff was friendly and attentive. The dining area is nice looking with a rustic collection of hard hewn woods. The parking lot is decently sized. They have an outdoor dining area that appears to be only one seasonally. The restroom was clean and well kept. All in all, a great shop for a weekend lunch.

It's been a few years since I have eaten at Hops on the Hill and I am kicking myself for waiting so long to go back. Previously when we went they only served beer and cider, and I don't drink either so we just never went back. But now they served mixed drinks as well.

The food is outstanding! Every bite had me doing a happy dance in my seat. The brisket has so much smoky, yummy flavor. It is some of the best brisket anywhere around. And the cucumber salad was perfection.

My husband talked about this food for an entire week. We cannot wait to go back!

I love the ambiance of this place as well. It is small, quaint, and relaxing.

Nice little bar/food establishment. Helpful, pleasant staff. We loved the sliders. We had the brisket and the smoked carrot sliders. They were perfectly sized (3 on each plate) for our senior appetites. Delicious. We will visit here again.

I. Love. This. Place.
I seriously try to spread the love around but I can't help but find my way back here at least twice a month. (I could make it here 5 days a week since I live up the street). I have to try to NOT come here more often.
I work in a restaurant, full disclosure... but dammit the French 75 and PULLED PORK are AMAZING!
It's casual and neighborhoodihsh.
Everyone that works here is great with handling the business regardless of busy or slower times... knowing when to engage with guests and when to let you enjoy your time alone.
I appreciate how hard you all work to make sure everyone is happy.
Special mention to the Caesar salad. Sorry I didn't get pictures this trip. I was hungry.
