The food was OK. Maybe I expected more according to the other reviews.
The service was good.
Overall a nice place to grab a bite.

Overprice for ordinary fare. The complimentary corn bread is a nice touch but it was bland and lacked the sweatness of corn. My husband and I each ordered an apitizer, which was enough food.

Ein echter Geheimtipp den wir nur dank Tripadvisor entdeckt haben..

Da wir im Hotel Triton übernachten, war der Weg dahin nur ein Katzensprung. Weil aber in einer Seitengasse gelegen, muss man die Augen offen halten.

Das Essen war ein wahrer Genuss und auch die Bedienung war sehr zuvorkommend und nett. Wir hatten als Vorspeise "Mac & Cheese" (unbedingt zu zweit teilen), Hops & Hominy Bürger und das Country Fried Steak. Sowohl die Vorspeise als auch die beiden Hauptgerichte waren sensationell!

Müsste man einen Minuspunkt suchen, so wäre dies die Lautstärke, gleichzeitig gehört dies aber zum Ambiente.

Delicious food. We both had halibut. Perfectly cooked, lots of veggies, wonderful cornbread. The restaurant is dark and the menu almost impossible to read but aside from that a wonderful evening. Delightful server also. Recommended and I'll be going back.

Extremely loud and, due to the nature of the seating, you're intimately involved in your neighbor's conversation. The food is mediocre and certainly not worth the $80 for an appetizer, two meals, and a beer (the beer was the best part). Service isn't bad but you can barely hear the waiter /waitress and carrying on a conversation with your dinner partner(s) is almost impossible. In fact, it was easier for us to text each other than to yell at each other. And "southern inspired" dishes? Uh....nowhere close guys.

Creative drinks; wide variety of beers
Everyone's food was perfectly prepared and tasted great (soups, salad, burger, chicken fried steak). Loved the corn appetizer.
All diners agreed: Hands down the BEST Mac and Cheese --creamy, not overwhelmingly cheesy, pasta cooked properly.

Came here with the wife for date night. I hadn't heard anything about this place before we went, besides seeing the menu. We shared the black eyed pea fritters for an appetizer. They were delicious. Crispy outside, creamy center with the avocado sauce and slightly spicy. My wife got the fried chicken. It was crispy, moist white meat and delicious. I got the shrimp and grits. Best shrimp and grits I've ever had. Love that the heads were still on the shrimp. That's the best part. The grits were perfectly cooked. For dessert, we shared the pecan pie. The pie was out of this world and I'm not a huge pecan pie fan. I would definitely come here again.

The combinations on the dinner entrees were tasty and the free corn bread was a nice touch. We had a drink at the bar prior to our reservations and the bar got crowded really fast. The bartender on scene was not very kind. He served us our drinks with efficiency, but when we asked for another wine because a knat type fly fell in the wine, another bartender poured my friend another glass. The original bartender didn't know, and charged us for it. He corrected it after the other bartender alerted him of the change but he then rolled his eyes and impatiently issued us another bill. The hostess was great though. Our server was fine. Unfortunately the seat I was in and my height, my head bumped a sharp corner off this ledge bordering the dining area. I would advise to soften that edge or forewarn diners ahead of time.

I am a sucker for fried oysters, they did not disappoint and had a very nice spiceness to them. My wife thought the asparagus salad may have been the best she's ever had.

Ambience was nice, a little "cozy" given the size of the place, so don't expect private dining.

Service was rushed, they needed the table. Every 10 minutes someone was there either taking something off the table or filling water glasses. It was too obvious. I ordered the Pork Chop ask for well-done my server was clearly instructed to discourage customers from that request, by explaining how the Pork Chop was cooked. Thereby, there is no for it be cooked well-done, I just brought it in a doggy bag and finish cooking it at home. It was OK, nice smoky flavor.

Dinner for 4 @ 6:15pm on Saturday evening. Seated promptly.
Drinks - creative, plus good beer selections.
Food - Country Fried Steak - completely unrecognizable meat product even though it was listed as "flatiron steak". Had texture of beef tongue. NOT RECOMMENDED. Corn chowder was thin and bland. Other items ordered, and side dishes were all very good.
One (burger) of 4 entrees arrived much later than others. Staff quickly responded with the order AND a free cocktail. Very attentive staff... once an oversight was identified.

Not far from Union Square - don't take alleys to get there though - take main roads if walking. Great food and drinks, nice service but an incredibly loud restaurant. There were two of us and we really had to shout across the table. We had the shrimp and grits and burger. The burger was wonderful and cooked perfectly rare. The tomato sauce on the grits was a little different but worth trying.

The staff was among the friendliest I have ever experienced. For starters, we ordered the wings, mac and cheese, which I highly recommend. For the entrees, my friend ordered potbelly sandwich, and I ordered the shrimp and grits which were absolutely delicious! They have to be among the best shrimp and grits I have ever tasted, and they had crawfish along with the shrimp! Highly recommend.

First time at Hops & Hominy. Great place. People working there are friendly, cool and interesting. The place is gorgeous, and has a great vibe. Interesting drinks menu, and of course, the fired chicken was absolutely to die for. All in all, I'll be back, for sure. Bar manager Brandon Pugh was super cool, and I had a blast.

We love the food and atmosphere at Hops and Hominy. The beer selection is okay - could be improved. But the great food makes up for it. Nice sized portions. I had shrimp and grits. It as wonderful although I would have preferred the shrimp without heads. It was a bit messy. My husband had the hamburger with egg on top and he enjoyed it as well.

The food was excellent, but this place is SUPER SUPER NOISY. Like, the sort of noise level where you can barely converse with the person across the table. I would go back, but not at prime time (my reservation was for 7:30). There were a handful of outdoor tables and I would imagine the ambiance would be very nice there on a warm evening.

I usually love Hops & Hominy, but this time I was very disappointed with the octopus fettuccine. The squid ink pasta was not good and the entire dish's palate was entirely too briney (or perhaps too salty and acidic) -- it was loaded with artichokes and olives with no counterbalance. Also, they cancelled the Pork Chops and Apple Sauce Martini -- a real winner -- how disappointing!

Menu on Open Table did not match menu at restaurant. Made a reservation (obvi) and got seated in noisy bar section. Whole restaurant very loud. Service was inattentive and hurried. Had to flag down waitress after entree arrived (midway through) to get another glass of wine - and she stopped and took a dinner order at the table next to us further delaying the wine. Server described soup as a purée - apple and sweet potato - it was chunky. No spoon on table or with soup had to flag someone down. Macaroni and cheese tasty but not as hot as I would have liked or expected. 2 glasses of wine and 1 beer and bill was over $100. Bad lighting ( even the 20-somethings next to us had trouble reading menu). Out of cheesecake by 8 pm. No regular coffee just espresso drinks. Weird. Milk (not cream) given for my Americano (as close as they could come to coffee) and espresso is too bitter for that. One shining point was the breading on the fried chicken and the biscuit with honey. Nothing else stands out and fried chicken can be gotten elsewhere. Disappointed.
