They had me at fresh corn bread hot out of the oven. What a great place. We wanted to go back the next night but they are closed on Sundays ; )
I recommend the fried chicken plate.
We’ve been here twice and love be it! Great good, drinks, and atmosphere! We’ll be back, for sure!!
Went to H&H on a Tuesday night. Place was full but we had a reservation so able to sit at 6:45. The fried chicken had been lauded online and by others. We ordered that and the ribs. We added an extra piece of dark meat chicken at +$3 to our order so we could make sure we had plenty for sharing. The chicken we received was very unevenly battered with almost none on half of the breast we received. The white meat was dry. The drumstick was also barely battered and worst of all, the added dark meat appeared to be the thigh from a pigeon. It was so small, after taking the skin off, there was one mouthful of meat. The ribs had a very nice flavor but were not cooked enough and very difficult to get the meat off the bones. The sides of mashed and potato salad were boring and the biscuit was dry. Service was ok but as it was very busy, not able to spend any time with us.
Everything was excellent except the noise level - it was difficult to hear and carry on a normal conversation.
Excellent cornbread in cast iron skillets with delicious honey butter! Caesar salad was spicy & sooo good. Mac & Cheese was great (definitely 5 stars)! Shrimp and grits were savory & smoky and also 5 stars. Service was top notch. Highly recommend this restaurant! Only negative is how hot it was inside. Felt like it was 85+ degrees.
Noise level was a too much on the ground level.
We’ve eaten at Hops & Hominy a few times and have always been pleased with the food/service/value. This visit however, we had a server that made our experience unpleasant with her aggressive behavior. She was rude, and overly possessive when I asked a restaurant employee about the types of Bourbon carried at the bar. I wanted to know what was carried and the expert opinion of the bartender. Our server was rude, walked up to me and demanded that she be consulted. Last time I checked it’s still a free country, even in SF. I tried to explain to her that I wasn’t bypassing her service but to no avail. She remained unpleasant for the remainder of our dinner.
We love Hops and Hominy. I hope that she was just having a bad day.
We had dinner there as it's my daughters favorite restaurant while we're in San Francisco.
They sat us in the back room and told us VERY RUDELY that if we want a better table we would need to wait 45 minutes even though I had made reservations over two months ago.
I should've left at that point rather I chose to stay and endure the agony of semi rude service and bad food.
I will never be going back again you can count on that!
Super fantastic restaurant! Brussels Sprout appetizer was amazing with the perfect amount of bacon crunch and seasoning. All 4 of us were very happy with and thoroughly enjoyed our dinners which were Shrimp & Gritz, Burger, Skirt Steak and Mac and Cheese. All presentations were superb as well. Drink menu is fun and service rocked!
Casual dining in a convenient downtown location. Great service. Food was very good. Loved the arugula, sweet potato salad, black eyed peas fritters and Mac and cheese. Cocktails were expensive but tasty.
