Place is going out of business I think. Out of everything, including glasses. Light bulbs burnt out, lights flickering, closed early.

Fair enough it was a Sunday night but the quality of food and service has really gone down hill here... it's still good, just not one of my favorites anymore

We have been a fan of this restaurant for a while but the service has really been slipping recently. We were there this past Saturday afternoon when the restaurant was mostly empty and the service was AWFUL. We waited about 10 minutes for a server, we had to ask for someone to take a drink order - which was subsequently forgotten about because it was another 10 minutes before our drinks were delivered, food came out wrong and took forever -- and when we did finally receive some of our food you could tell that it had actually been sitting under the heat lamp for a really long time. All the while, we're watching two of the staff in the restaurant - including the person who took our order - chit chat in the corner of the restaurant. Won't be going back. Which is sad because I really used to like this place.

Sadly, we were massively disappointed by this visit to Hot's. A few years ago we rented a vacation home nearby. It became our go-to place for awesome beer selection, great food and fun vibe. We were back in the area for a long weekend. Hot's was our first stop for dinner. We were quickly disappointed by the lack of service and poor food quality. There big tables left uncleared for a long time, people at table looking around for help, and staff that looked frustrated. Our food was blah. Beers were good- hard to mess that up. They comped us two tacos, but it really didn't matter. Another issue, the lighting. It was oddly dark, not purposeful for ambiance, but as if lighting was missing. We will not be back.

Food was good. Service was awful. Didn't remember the entire table's order. Wasn't crowded and we waited for a long time for our food. It was my husbands birthday and I wrote it in the OpenTable reservation but they didn't seem to even remember or know that I had a made a reservation when I arrived.

We really enjoyed our meal. Best kale salad I have ever had! Brussel Sprouts and Cauliflowr were outstanding. Inventive tacos and great wine and beer selection. Service was very attentive and helpful. Only downside...parking was super difficult otherwise a very pleasant evening.

The server was tossing food and running away, the hostess was clueless and disinterested. The food was strange and poorly executed. They were out of many advertised beers. The dining room was stuffy.The server often left in mid sentence.

Amazing dinner at Hots Kitchen. We went for the chips and guac and truffle fries for apps. We could have had just those for dinner. Tacos are amazing and good sized portion. Good selection of beers.

Great food and brews as always, but.... we were disappointed to see noticeably fewer taco choices. Even more disappointing, though, was to see the note on the menu about the 3% hospitality fee. I first saw this kind of thing at the Proud Bird and vowed never to go back. Just raise the prices if you must. And stop complaining about paying your employees a living wage and proving healthcare. That's pretty low class in my book.
