Contemporary American
Earnest Bar & Hideaway: a relaxed restaurant and refined tavern serving comfort food classics & craft cocktails inspired by Ernest Hemingway in rustic-chic surrounds.
Reasonably priced entrees like the 32oz. Bone Ribeye and Grilled Pork Tenderloin. However, the Korean Fried Chicken has already established itself as a Earnest Bar & Hideaway classic. Saturday & Sunday brunch is 10:30AM - 2:30PM! Don’t miss out on the Ribeye French Dip sandwich, Brown Butter Pancakes, Hot Chicken & Mac! Wash it all down with Bottomless Mimosas.
The half bottle of champagne is the enemy of man -EH
Come join us for fare and libations!
Cheers!

Exceptional service! Our appetizers took a while to come out of the kitchen so our server promptly let us know that he removed them from the bill, which was totally unexpected and very much appreciated. Food was delicious, ambiance was warm and intimate, and our kind server was just the cherry on top. Love this place!

Awesome place, first time here but will definitely be back. Had a reservation for 11am, walked into a mostly empty restaurant but it filled up quickly so I recommend making a reservation for Sunday Brunch.
Service was spectacular, JJ was our server and he kept the glasses full of mimosas for us. Food suggestions were great as well.

I only wish they had sat us by the window versus in middle of room when there we open tables. The innermost part by the bar does not have a lot of natural light.

Loved Earnest brunch!! Do yourself a favor, order the captain's coffee and the huevos rancheros. The coffee is like Christmas in a cup, and I would go back for that drink alone. The huevos rancheros could have maybe used a bit more salsa; however, I loved it as it wasn't the typical soup-like consistency that so many other places create. We'll be back, no question!

Delicious Sunday Brunch. Get the French toast! Glad they had a grace period for reservations because we were a little late. Their espresso machine was broken so we couldn’t get lattes, we just got regular coffee. Just wish our server came around more to refill our coffee cups. Overall a very good experience!

We wanted to go somewhere local for our anniversary so we chose this place, assuming we could avoid hordes of tourists. Regrettably not the case, as every other table in the joint was a large party. The kitchen was in the weeds and we waited quite a while. Food was good if unremarkable. We might go back some day, but then, isn’t it pretty to think so.

Ambiance was great. Cute little gem off the beaten path. They accommodated our big group very well. Service from the start was SLOW, and from then on - non-existent. Didn't fill up waters or check on drinks. Food was OK.

The server was great, poured the bottomless mimosas like I was dying of thirst. The food on the other hand, was heavy like the pour. I also think the duck/wagyu burger was uncooked which meant I took many trips to the bathroom later that night. Maybe again, idk.

Parker was a great server - friendly and informative. The first Steve McQueen cocktail was amazing, as was the second, third, and so on... Delicious food (i.e. brussel sprouts that children would fight over). Overall Excellent in all respects - I highly reccommend!!!

We have dined here multiple times over the last couple years. Since we both are well past the two weeks for the Covid vaccines to be maximally effective, we decided to head out for our first indoor dining since February of 2020. Here is what to expect: Plenty of space, most excellent service, perfect food and cocktails. When you visit, make sure to take some time to explore the building and art work.

The food is ok at best - I suppose changing the formality from Hemmingways to Earnest should be our first clue that this went from cool and elegant to informal and little effort made. Service was excellent, but a server can't improve what comes out of the kitchen.
