We stopped in for a quick lunch and were delighted to find one of the most extensive beer selections around paired with great menu options and truly outstanding service. The service, in particular, really impressed us because every single person with whom we came in contact was gracious, attentive and intuitive—a rare experience!
Food was fantastic and the service was amazing. We will definitely dine again.
Thank you for joining us, Paula! We can't wait to see you again soon! :)
This was our first time at Hoppy Gnome and we had Kris as our waiter. He was pleasant and super helpful. We could tell that he knew the menu very well and he prides himself in customer service. The food was delicious and we will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for joining us, Emily! We will make sure to share your kind words with our staff! :) We can't wait to see you again!

Great food, go there about every two weeks. The beer list is wonderful!
Thanks so much for dining with us! We can't wait to see you again soon :)
My partner and I went in having been recommended the Hoppy Gnome as a decent place to get vegan food. The veggie tacos I got were horrible.

Thank you for dining with us! We're very happy to have you, we hope to see you again soon! :)
Stopped on way through Ft. Wayne. Sure glad we did! Fantastic tacos. The flavor combinations were perfect. Great service and social distancing precautions. Fun bear and cocktail selections. We are driving 2.5 hours again soon just to eat here.
Thanks so much for visiting!! We're so glad to hear you had such a wonderful experience :) Can't wait to see you again!
One of my favorite places for a lite meal. It is hard to find places like yours that serve healthy, tasty and reasonably priced meals that don’t overstuff their customers. Decor is rather stark and modern which is of less importance to us who prefer a warmer atmosphere.
We especially enjoy the variety of tacos. Tried the taco with mushroom, vegetarian and almost always order the mahi- Mahi taco. Both are out of this world yummy
Thank you so much for dining with us (and for your kind review!) We hope to see you again soon ! :)
Really good vibe. Nice beer selection. Food was excellent, service excellent too. Will be back.
Thank you for joining us, Elizabeth! We're excited to see you again!
Great service, I always get a variety of tacos
Thank you so much for visiting :) We hope to see you again soon!
Our reservation was for regular seating, but we were seated in the bar area.
Table was very wobbly and my husband had to go the bar to get napkins to stabilize it.
Waitress was accommodating, and had an intern with her.
Was disappointed that “3 little pigs” taco was taken off the menu.
Ordered the brisket and shrimp-brisket was very good, but shrimp one only had 2 small shrimp on it, and mostly breading. Seemed pretty skimpy for a $5 taco.
Overall, just wasn’t impressed. This was probably our 10th trip to HG.
Carey, Thank you for providing us with feedback from your dining experience - it is the best way we can learn from our guests and fix our mistakes for the future! I'm disappointed to read about your visit with us (from beginning to end) and would love an opportunity to rebuild your trust within our establishment.

The food was perfect. But the service was outstanding!!
Thank you so much for dining with us, Kara! We'll make sure to share your kind words with our staff :) We hope to see you again soon!
Good food and great service. Always enjoy coming here.
We appreciate you for coming, Dan! Can't wait to see you again :)
First time there. Food was amazing. 10 minutes into the drive home. Got sick & was sick until the next morning.
Great atmosphere inside and out. Got to eat outside and it was great. Tacos were exceptional, old fashioned was tasty, sangria did the trick, tacos were great to sample, service was kind & friendly. We will definitely be back
Thank you so much for dining with us! We can't wait to see you again! :)
Great food. Great staff. Great restaurant.
Thanks so much for dining with us! We hope to see you again soon :)
The cooks did an Amazing job on our meals!!! Thank you
Thanks so much for dining with us! We'll share your kind words with our chefs!
We sat outside and had brunch. It was the perfect day for it. The food and service was excellent!
Thanks so much for dining with us!! We hope to see you again before patio season is over! :)
I love Hoppy Gnome it’s always the place i go to everytime I’m in Forth Wayne especially those exotic tacos!
We love having you, Rachel! We hope to see you next time you're in town!
Great service but very crowded and noisy
Hi, Elainel! Thank you so much for coming! I'm sorry to hear it was a little noisy during your dining experience, depending on the time of day, our environment can get very energetic. In the future, we can reserve or designate you into a quieter area of the restaurant upon request! We want to make sure all of our guests feel as comfortable as possible. We hope to see you again soon :)
Very good food great prices. Loved our waiter and the customer service was great. Would recommend to everyone.
Thank you for visiting and for your kind words. Hope to see you again soon :)
I ordered the pork shank redemption. But I don't eat sugar (came with pineapple salsa) or carbs (came with dirty rice). So I asked to sub the cauliflower mash and a side of the aoli that comes with the meatball appetizer. Maddie our server immediately said no problem and made the modifications as requested. Thats what u get with a scratch kitchen. Mr. Khan runs a fantastic restaurant and the servers are so well trained and accommodating. We love hoppy gnome, proximo, and baker street. All 3 are consistently excellent!!
Thank you so much for coming! Our scratch kitchen's purpose is to satisfy as many guest requests as we can; I am so glad we could do that for you. I will share your kind words with our staff :) We hope to see you again soon!
The food is so good!!! Not your average fare. So many varieties of tacos! My favorite food is the Asian Tuna Tartare. And forty beer taps!
Thanks so much for coming, Andi! We, too, love us some beer! Hope to see you again soon!
Disappointed could not sit outside. Dining room was uncomfortably full by the time we finished

Thank you so much for coming Khara! We will share your kind words with our staff - hope to see you again soon :)
We stop by every year on our way to and from our lake vacation. The food and service is always fantastic and specifically plan our trip stops around eating here. We love how family friendly they are while also offering really great food!
Wow! Thank you so much for the kind words. We're honored to be a regular stop on your family vacation! Looking forward to serving you again in the future. Cheers :)
The food was fantastic and came out quick. Service was outstanding!
Thank you for visiting. We're so glad you had an enjoyable experience :)
Great food, patio seating is nice, beer was delicious.
Thank you for coming, Zack!
Great food and atmosphere as usual! Very hospitable, and complied with all Coronavirus recommendations
Thank you for the kind review and for your support Ryan! :)
Excellent food! Great service. Great beer. We ran into a little confusion regarding availability of outside seating, but this was resolved satisfactorily.
Thank you for coming! We're glad your seating issue was resolved promptly :) We hope to see you again soon!
This was our first visit and we will be back! Our waitress was the best and very helpful from start to finish. Some of the best food around. If you haven’t tried it you are missing out. Try the meatball taco you will not be disappointed!
We're so glad you enjoyed your visit, Nelly! Can't wait to see you again :)
We were greeted promptly and handed a wonderful anniversary card from the hostess. Seated quickly. The server was nice, and very informative. Wonderful experience.
We are honored to share these special moments with you! Thank you for your kind review :)
Food was cold and not done.
Thank you for visiting and for your feedback. We clearly dropped the ball and can only hope that it was remedied in the moment and we were able to get you food that was done and hot. If not, our hope is you'll give us a 2nd chance to make a good impression. Our standards were clearly not met on this visit. Thank you again for giving us a try. Have a great day.
We arrives a little earlier than our reservation but they seated us immediately. Service was impeccable and food was excellent. Casual atmosphere that encourages families to dine out. Not surprisingly, beer list is extensive. We definitely would dine at Hoppy Gnome again!
Thank you for taking the time to leave this kind & detailed review. We truly appreciate it and hope to see you again soon! : )
Drinks and food were very, very, very slow to come out. It was $85 for 3 of us for lunch. We had alcohol, no appetizers or dessert. Subtracting the $36 spent on alcohol, it seemed really pricey for 2 tacos and 2 orders of breakfast burritos??!!
Thank you for your honest feedback and for visiting . Our standards were clearly not met during your recent visit. We strive to provide quick service at a value to our guests and we dropped the ball on both ends it seems here. Our only hope is you are kind enough to give us another chance to impress. If not, we understand and, again, thank you for your feedback. That's our only true metric to gauge how we're doing and focus on areas of improvement. Have a great day
We love the Fried Chili Cauliflower as an appetizer, the soft shell corn tortillas for tacos, and the fun of tasting and sharing flights of beer.
Thank you for your review!
