We celebrated Father’s Day last night and had a lovely evening. We were well attended to. We ordered calamari and stuffed mushrooms for appetizers and the food came out in 10 minutes and was delicious. For entree my father and I shared the tomahawk ribeye cooked medium plus so my portion was med rare like I like but my fathers piece was more well done like he prefers. My son ordered the cowboy ribeye which he enjoyed. We also had the grilled asparagus which was perfect and the brussel sprouts were fantastic as well. The lobster Mac and cheese was okay they just put a heap of lobster on top of their regular Mac and cheese dish so it doesn’t taste like a part of the dish. More

I have come to Hubbard Inn many times for their good food, beautiful décor, and good service. This weekend was a little disappointing based on past experiences. They must have JUST started a new menu, because when I looked online while booking the reservation the menu was different than the menu we were given at the restaurant. This was disappointing, as I was entertaining family from out of town that are quite picky and I wouldn't have picked the restaurant based on the new menu. Additionally, our "Truffle Sliders" were missing the truffle aioli that they are named for...quite disappointing. Aside from issues with the new menu, we had a good experience and enjoyed ourselves.

Ate here with colleagues when in town on business. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Great selection of tequila. Guacamole was good- we had the three variety appetizer and each was unique. Salsa had nice heat. Ceviche was fresh and tasty; generous portion that was more “brothy” than others I’ve had but I liked it very much. Only disappointing thing was their tres leches cake. More like corn bread muffin consistency and not sitting in any leches sauce. More

Spent the weekend in Chicago in route to India and Asia with my wife. The ambiance, food and service were amazing. Nara, who waited, on us was extremely nice. She gave us ideas of what to do that evening. Everything was great. More
