I've been going here on and off for 24 years. Food has always been good and sports coverage is great. Nice gem in a residential area. If ever in the neighborhood, stop in and enjoy yourself!

I come here with friends for wings Wednesday. Flavor variety is limited, and wings are pretty good. I’ve never had anything else so I can’t comment much on other food. They have a good beer selection but I don’t like beer. I like their gin and tonic and Long Island.

I'd love to give this place a better review because it's close to where I live and, in general, has a variety of food and drink I like. I can't though. I was a part of a group meet-up that was about as low-committal as a large group could be in a restaurant industry sense. People were coming in and paying their own tabs, on their own time, within a couple hour frame. So at no point would any one waitress be overly burdened with the service of many people or have to be bothered with having to split checks; nor would the kitchen be overrun with a bunch of food orders as most people were just coming in for drinks. Basically this would have just been 15 extra patrons on any given night in this bar's business. The fact that we were sort of grouped together bothered the manager so much that he made it a point to not only tell us that we should have called ahead but that if we had called ahead he would have directed us to go to a different bar. 15 people. I wonder how this place stays in business. The guy acted like the place was making enough money to be able to turn 15 people away because - and this is a direct quote - "the kitchen gets messy if too many people order at once." Again, no one even wanted food. I mean, it was the oddest encounter I've ever had with a manager. For the record, the woman who organized this DID call ahead and was told they couldn't take reservations for groups, but was not directed to go to a different bar. Likely, because whoever spoke with her had a shred of business acumen.
I rarely use yelp, nor do I ever feel compelled to use it to say bad things about a place. In this instance I'm mostly hoping the owner of the establishment sees this because he or she has to know what ever manager they have in place is not in the business of making money. Either the owner is unaware this manager is condescending and often directing clientele to other locations OR this inept manager is some kind of blood relative that can't be let go for whatever familial obligation.

A great little pub to hit after work. Absolutely love the food and a great waitress who remembers your order from the last time you've been there.
Update: this place is still great. It's been many months since we've moved here. Almost a year. This is our go to place about 75% of our weekend outings. We love the service, we love the food, its still great!

Where it's AT
The Hop & Vine was a great choice for Valentines Day this year. Our server was new & in training but did a fabulous job. The selection of Beer & Wine was great and the food was excellent. Highly recommend the Currie Chicken bowl. We'll be back.
