  • "chicken fried steak gravey was over salted. Cornbread was delicious. Fried chick was average but accompanying hot sauce was tasty."

  • "Great atmosphere, packed with lots of happy customers; the service was excellent and the food was too. Extremely interesting choices, tried the battered oysters for starter - they went down well with a beer! Had a steak for mains and again, really different and tasty! The staff were enthusiastic, friendly and seemed genuinely interested in their customers' dining experience. Would highly recommend this place!"

  • "This was my second time at Hops & Hominy. First time we sat at the bar, had some awesome cocktails, shared some corn bread and mac & cheese. This time we sat at a table (no room at bar). We ordered two gin & jam cocktails- yum! I ordered the Chicken & Dumplings and my friend had the burger. My chicken and dumplings showed up with NO dumplings to be found. I sent the dish back and they added my dumplings in. The way I know chicken & dumplings is very creamy, almost like a chicken pot pie but not in pie style. The description gave no indication it would be any different. My dish however was more like Chicken soup and it was very bitter (too much green onion I thin). My friend said her burger was really good but I was bummed about my meal."

  • "I'll keep this short. Basically, the food and drinks are good, but the service sucks. Our waitress hardly paid any attention to us the whole night, forgetting a bunch of stuff and then completely ignoring us. The people next to us had to get up and track her down to get their bill. Normally, this wouldn't prevent me from leaving a normal tip. My friend and I split our bill and our waitress told us she wouldn't take the change we threw in to round out the bill. When we explained it to her she said "Um, okay..." It was rude and we left a bad tip because of it. My friend and I were in shock walking away after that. So much so that my friend decided to call the restaurant and complain. Like I said, food was good, but won't be coming back."

  • "The food is very representative of gulf coast southern cuisine. Absolutely spot on. Sweet tea had soured a bit by the time we got there at 7 pm, but understandable oversight when the rest of the food is so amazing."

  • "I decided to try this place based on a coworker's recommendation, and I'm happy to say that all her "ooh-ing and ahh-ing" was my reaction, too! Yummy cocktails, delicious entrees (pork chop was amazing!)and decadent desserts. Even when it became really busy and crowded, service was great. I'm telling everyone I know to come here to satisfy their comfort food cravings!"

  • "Hops & Hominy is my favorite find in San Francisco. Growing up in Texas, cornbread, grits, chicken and dumplings, and chicken fried steak were some of the best comfort food. And find it outside of Texas and the south is hard. Well, it's easy to find. But to find it made well is difficult. Hops & Hominy always delivers. I enjoy going with friends and love the drink menu as well. Every time I have been it has consistently been good. It definitely gets loud so it's probably not best for intimate conversation."

  • "Loved it! Very innovative Southern cuisine. I had their eggs Benedict which had pieces of deep-fried white fish in it - very different but delicious. I made a mistake in what I ordered and our waiter was extremely gracious and accommodating about it. Has browns are to die for. Be warned - it is REALLY noisy!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Food was fine. They don't use grits, though, they use corn meal. We were celebrating our anniversary and when I booked the reservation over a week out, I asked for a table in a corner. I renewed my request when I called the morning of the reservation. They simply ignored my request and stuck us wherever they felt like. Which was distressing. Otherwise, we had a great meal and ended up during next to some very nice people."

  • "This restaurant came highly recommended and is near the hotel where my company was having its annual conference for members. The food is really, really good - we didn't have the fried chicken, but I had the shrimp and grits (divine!) and my colleague had the mac and cheese (equally divine!). We also each had a cocktail that involved apple, bacon and bourbon - again, very tasty, and also very fun to announce to co-workers that we'd had a cocktail containing bacon! Service was quick and attentive, and the decor is nice - lots of exposed brick and wood. Tables are not too close together (a big plus!), but I can see it could get hard to carry on a conversation once the bar got crowded. A good dining option in the Union Square area."

  • "Food was delicious. It is very noisy in the restaurant though. I recommend the black eyes pea fritters and the brownie ice cream dessert."

  • "We made a reservation for 2 only one hour before arriving. The staff greeted us at the door right away, they were very busy but we were still seated within 5 min, excellent food, good staff!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Space: Great. Looks good, great table. Food: Meh. Tasteless Chicken and Dumplings. Bland broth. Black eyed pea fritters were gummy and pasty although perfectly crunchy on the outside. Had high hope for the cocktails, and they were fine. Service: Perhaps a miscommunication between kitchen and service staff, but our main dishes came out while we were all still enjoying out appetizers and chatting. Two servers tried to make space wherever they could find on the table and our server said, "Sorry...I tried to course it out." Tab: $200. (Not including the 20% tip.)"

  • "The salmon and risotto was fresh, perfectly done and refreshing , the country fried steak was tender and tasty, but the sauce (gravy) was bland and lukewarm on top of the hot steak. The garlic mashed potatoes were a bit salty and not garlicky. The tri-tip sandwich was just ok,nothing special. The fritters were very flavorful, nice spice but a bit underdone. The cornbread terrific and the kale quinoa salad perfectly dressed and a delicious combo."

  • "It's tough to find good southern food in the Bay Area. This is a very loud place, close to Union Square. Good selection of interesting draft beer. Excellent appetizers - we had the mac n cheese, black eyed pea fritters, and kale salad - all good. Fried chicken was excellent, small portion of collard greens was just OK. Burnt my finger on hot skillet that the brownie came out on. Wished the waiter would have warned us about that. Overpriced, but hey, it's the city. "

  • "Having grown up in the South, I'm pretty picky about places outside of the South claiming to make Southern classics. Hops and Hominy doesn't claim it, they just do it. And do it exceedingly well. Their sausage gravy rivals some of the best I've had anywhere in the South, rich, a little spicy, with a perfectly executed biscuit. Shrimp and Grits is similarly spot-on, as is the Chicken Fried Steak. I have been here for both brunch and dinner and love them both in equal measure. And the wait staff is attentive, skilled and very friendly. This place is a winner in every respect."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "The restaurant has a cute logo and a good location, close to all in Union Square. The dining room was extremely noisy even for a late mid-week meal. The menu was all soul food. The service was mediocre at best. The young waitress was unattentive. The shrimp and grits arrived with half cooked shrimp swimming in a spicy sauce (grits were the only good part of the meal). The chicken pot pie was very good but with mediocre service we won't be returning. "

  • "Loved the place and decor. The appetizers came out lukewarm and the service was okay. The fried chicken was good"

  • "We dined here for dinner before a fancy party and did not feel out of place even though it was a Southern food restaurant. Seemed like there was a great happy hour going on before we arrived. Food was hearty and tasty, but the waiter was not knowledgable about the wine list or menu which was the only frustration of our evening."

  • "Great food, although a bit on the pricey side. Black-eyed Pea Fritters (3 stars) Fried Chicken (4 stars) Mac & Cheese (4 stars) Pork Chop (5 stars) Oyster Po Boy (4 Stars) Good place to hang out, but just be ready to spend a bit."
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "Saw this on open table, wanted comfort food, and some drinks. Comfort food was very good. One of the most amazing corn breads and biscuits and fried chicken. Corn bread is not sticky and sweet like most, but rather fluffy and light! Fried chicken definitely on par with ad-hoc in napa and drinks are amazing / dangerous being strong and refreshing. Pork chop was a bit dry, which behooves me as its easy to cook pork chops. The tri-tip sandwich was good, but also a bit dry unfortunately. I think stick with the comfort food and its perfect! Definitely a good energetic place with great drinks and comfort food."

  • "This was my first time to this restaurant and I must say I was happy I chose it! First of all let me say that the black eyed pea fritters are to DIE for and the dipping sauce was not hot either, it had the right amount of kick. For my entrée I chose the pacific halibut and my friend had the oyster po boy sandwich. She said it was good but a little dry. My halibut was perfectly seared on the outside yet flaky and tender on the inside. Thanks to Yelp for the suggestion! "

  • "Hops & Hominy brings the new southern cooking to San Francisco. The black eyed pea fritters were fantastic. The southern fried steak and mashed potatoes ventured away from the traditional white or brown gravy and it worked very well. The service was attentive, but not hovering. All-in-all, a great dining experience"

  • "We went for Sunday brunch. My boyfriend is a big fan of biscuits and gravy so I thought that we would give this place a try. The food was seriously amazing. The chorizo gravy gave the traditional dish a really great new twist."

  • "I've heard about Hops & Hominy for a while & just had to check it out. After all the hype, and my "experience" consuming southern food, I expected more. The fried chicken was perfectly tender, but lacked flavor & the breading was too light. While honest, our server should have stayed on message instead if saying things like "I've been here so long that the fried chicken has lost all its appeal." She was clearly "over it" in all aspects. I wanted more butter for my biscuit, but after multiple attempts & about 20 mins of trying to get her attention, I gave up & ate it with the hot sauce that came with the chicken. Although we had a lackluster dinner, I will give this place a 2nd shot because of all the endorsements I've heard."

  • "The primary reason we go out to restaurants - what they offer to eat and drink - Hops & Hominy is great! Wonderful southern fried chicken and fried oysters! I'm a little too old to appreciate a restaurant being a "Hot Spot", so it was rather too noisy for me. I'm glad I enjoyed the meal with just one companion sitting next to me, so I didn't have TOO much trouble hearing. One other minor complaint (perhaps another sign of my being a little too old?): the menus are printed to small and also with light type, so even using my reading glasses, I had a very difficult time reading the menus."
