Delish! Great food, so many flavors, I retesting dishes. Good beer list, cool setting, great service. Such a good find and a really sweet vibe.
I hear brunch is to die for too. Will defiantly be back!
First off- remember that you can come back, so don’t order everything on the menu even though they all sound good, and they are, because one might be a bit uncomfortable after packing away all of that good food and drink! Trust me, and my wife. She will definitely back me up on this.
Anyway, the staff were very friendly and helpful, taking back a beer that didn’t agree with my tastebuds, no questions asked.
First visit - get the Pretzel- wow!
If you’re hankering for a corn dog- do that, too! You’re already near the limit- but the meatballs are great(a bit spicy for me but I’m not a spice guy, so..)
The beers are pretty much overwhelming and on tap , an entire wall of taps, it appeared! You’ll find your way, or will be gently guided by the very present, near hovering, but not clingy, staff.
I liked the street scene , too. Interesting passers by.
The duck liver mousse was excellent- and they brought extra bread to be sure that we finished it off.
My only complaint, though really not something I would expect anywhere, they could have slapped the utensils out of our hands when we clearly exceeded any reasonable limit on food consumption. Seriously though, the food will take you past comfort, if you fail to observe the red flag warnings.. The only signage I obeyed was the giant hog pictured on their logo.
Glad I don’t keep kosher.
Oh yes, the front door handles are a kick. You’ll see.
Excellent quality food as always. The corned beef was exceptional as it was house cured. We eat corned beef sandwiches all year round, do we know when it's the best. The cod for fish & chips smelled excellent, but we were too full. All good here is good, even when it's not to my taste, the quality is SO exceptional that I like it anyways. Everything they serve is totally complimented by the massive selection of on tap beer - that changes regularly also, do it's always a gastronomical experience!! ENJOY!
A real gem. A funky place in an up and coming neighborhood. Can't wait to find an excuse to return.
Great food, however the meal pace is slow and this is the second lunch meeting I have had there in a week, so I would say that is an issue
The food was creative, flavorful and prices just right
Really love this place, but the new menu is sausage-centric. Also, on this particular evening it was really drafty inside. Had to keep our coats on. Still going back!
Brunch on a Saturday. We made a reservation because it can be crowded. It was not on the day we went. The food is good and somewhat creative. I like their interpretation of eggs Benedict. I got it without the breakfast potatoes and sybarites extra spinach. The breakfast potatoes are good with the interesting addition of fennel.
This Was her first time there. We really enjoyed the food and beer. It had a really good vibe and the people are friendly. We will be back.
Great vibe, enjoyed the community tables, and food was outstanding! Good choice of beer.
Delicious food and responsive efficient service.
No problem with reservation even though we were 15 minutes early
Everything we ate was amazing! We'll definitely be back.
Everytime we visit the Hog's it is great!
Best brunch in the east bay hands down
Excellent craft beer selection that goes very well with the food. The brunch menu had many delish choices. Service was on point. VJ played some nice record choices at perfect volume.
Brunch was exceptional - highly rexommended
The beer and the vibe were right for any night of the week. Food was tasty including the sausages which were paired with an excellent flight of beer. Staff and service we're all around pleasant, aware and ready to make the experience enjoyable.
Terrefic service. The best food I have eaten in a restaurant and at least a year. The Fried Chicken was over the top.The vegetables and preparation were super creative everything was fantastic. Highly recommend.
We were there for restaurant week but after we ordered I realized that I hadn't asked for the restaurant week menu. It's a fun, young people's place with music, super friendly staff and lots of beers on tap. We ordered a fish sandwich which was excellent and a spinach salad that we couldn't eat because it was drenched with vinegar. Overall, I think it's a fun restaurant for a casual meal swigged with a beer, or two. The decor is pretty basic with a lot of shared tables and bench seating.
Fun place but not fine dining.
The food is always amazing as is the staff. I’ve never had anything I did not enjoy. They take sometimes common eats and alter them with fresh ingredients. I love this place!
Though the beer selection is quite good and reasonable, the menu selections are very pricey. The salumieri's selection is $30 for delicious duck liver mousse, , spicy pork rillettes, mortadella, and a few pickles, mustard, etc. Too much for what was presented, and though included toasted baguette slices, there were no other cured meats.
The "Executive Package" was $45! Though the three specialty sausages and accoutrements were delicious, along with a large soft pretzel, it was way too costly for this. The pan-seared braised pork belly with lentils was $16 for a very small portion.
I would come here for the beers because of the great selection of craft beers at a reasonable price, but wouldn't spend the dollars for the food.
I've enjoyed past visits, which made this one so disappointing. The server was friendly & answered questions. She came by frequently at times, but also disappeared for long stretches. The party of 4 who arrived after us somehow got their food, ate, and got their check more quickly. We were a party of 2. We didn't order drinks, and we didn't dawdle, yet somehow we were there for 2 hours, unwillingly. All the hot dishes arrived lukewarm. We don't know if that was the intent of the cooks, if there was a slow expediter, or if it was the server. The restaurant wasn't full. The Fort Bragg cod tasted fresh but had a strong fishy odor, unlike Atlantic cod, so this was a time that local wasn't better. The Draymond's Greens didn't work. It was a mishmash of things. The fig sausage seemed expensive. The housemade potato chips and triple onion dip were good (though not enough dip) and the pot de creme was good. For $100 for 2, though, I would've expected better food and service. Later that evening, I realized I was sickened by the dinner too. Don't think I'll be coming back.
Great food, great beer! Went for my buddy’s birthday. Fried chicken and Schnitzel mmmmmm.
Great location and creative menu. The staff is awesome and very nice.
Always great! Hog's is our go-to place for a quick beer and a bite. Always friendly service.
Seriously delicious. Highly recommend the Devil Bird and the biscuits and gravy for brunch.
Love our Hogs Apothecary! A loved neighborhood cozy spot.
We love this place! We went for my birthday, upon recommendations from others, and we were seeing a show in town. We were seated immediately, and the service was excellent. The food could not have been better! It was fresh, creative and beautifully presented!.My husband said it was the best pork chop he has ever had! They even surprised me with a special dessert for my birthday! The atmosphere is that of a neighborhood pub, but the food is on a par with the best restaurants anywhere. The prices are reasonable for the quality of food. We are looking forward to going back and taking a group of our friends!
Fun eclectic buzz of a place with hoppin (tryin to keep up) waitstaff bringing delicious unique dishes & great beers! Family style fun, you have to eat here!
Tried brunch, and food was tasty but felt it was a bit overpriced. There are many good brunch places that provide better value. Since this was our first time, we were worried about the negative comments regarding the service and have to agree that they can be more customer request oriented... had to ask multiple times for butter, water and tea refill. And they don’t have decaf coffee. They seem to try hard, but miss on a couple of points.
Great. Pork is fantastic
Unique and delicious. A new perspective on sausage and pork chops. Wide selection of craft beers, great for a family meal or a date. Pretty pricy though. Not an everyday place for most budgets but great for an occasion.
New find for us. Love it. Terrific meats.
Spotty, inconsistent service delivered by more than one waiter. Waited a very long time before main dish arrived. They brought me the wrong entree, then sent it back and took forever to bring the right item. By that time, my dining companion had already finished her meal, which was a vegetable appetizer. They apologized and offered us free potato chips, but we had already eaten an order of potato chips while waiting, so they brought me a salad. They also brought the pretzel about 40 minutes into the dinner; it was supposed to have been an appetizer. Food was mediocre -- not delicious. Best things were the beer and pretzel.
My family went there for brunch. My husband was super excited for the Pastrami Benedict. His excitement was short lived. The pastrami was not trimmed there was so much fat he could not eat it. Though the mustard hollandaise was a treat. My scramble was just ok and my son was not thrilled that his waffles had leaks in it. Overall we did not enjoy.
Dining at Hog's Apothecary is always a unique and fantastic experience for your senses. One of the more thoughtful beer lists that pairs wonderfully with brunch, lunch, snacks, and dinner. With a constantly changing menu based upon seasonality of ingredients, there's always something new or reinvented by their team.
The waitstaff is consistently friendly, attentive, and patient with me and my guests.
This was my third trip to the Apothecary, home of an outstanding beer list and some great, German-inspired food. On this trip, we got caught in that dinner rush vortex where your order goes in at the same time as many others. The first courses came out in pretty timely fashion...but there was a long delay for the entrees. Just as I was about to suggest bailing, the server came up and apologized. To me, that's often enough: I just want somebody acknowledge there's a problem and to reassure me that we haven't been forgotten. Fortunately, the food came soon after and was super good. All is forgiven. As a bonus they knocked a few bucks off the bill. So take warning, be vigilant, but don't skip this place. It's just too damn good.
My party brought down the hipster quotient by at least 25%, but our service was attentive and friendly. We love this spot but brought friends for their first experience and the food and food service sold them. Noisy, but it was the restaurant's anniversary, so it was understood.
Our wait staff were very forgetful, although friendly.
GM had a tasting waiting. Service was great. Food delicious.
Early drinks and dinner...arrived at 5:30 on a Thursday. No trouble getting street parking on 40th.
My party was greeted on entry and seated promptly (I made though didn't appear to need a reservation). Extensive beer selection. We each had no selecting a beverage of choice. i recommend the Pretzel for 2 and the jug-roasted corn (aka beer nuts).
I ordered the Chopper and the other two in my party order Country Bird. Waitress took our refresh drink orders and dinner arrived shortly after the fresh drinks. My pork chop was delicious...paired well with grits and collard greens. I was told the chicken was also satisfying and exceeded expectation. None of us had room for dessert.
Some might say it's pricey but the quality of food and selection of beers makes this a good value. I recommend you try The Hog's Apothecary.
