Didn’t give 5 stars for food because sweet potato fries weren’t really tasty, not bad but good but improved.
Absolutely great service!

Our server Clay was amazing! The place was packed and the food and drinks were good.

However... keep in mind here, our table consisted of 4 service industry people. We know what busy is. We know what brunch service is like. And we know what table timing is.

The four of us are very good friends and we hadn’t seen each other all together in months and we were celebrating one of us getting a new job.

As we were getting ready to leave, (one friend still had half a drink in hand) the host comes up to the table and informed us that they have a 90 minute table limit and he’s had a table waiting for 20 minutes...

Not only were we already leaving but none of us have ever been to a restaurant in any state or star rating where we’ve been asked to leave. If that’s a stipulation it should be stated before you make a reservation.

Honestly, we had a great time but after the bad taste that was put into our mouths prior to leaving, we won’t be back.

Hutch does have a 90 minute table time. It's very rare to ask a table to vacate. unfortunately 2 hours and forty five minutes was far exceeding our limit, and with no tables available my last reservation sat 15 minutes before our kitchen closed. I apologize you felt offended but I do have to think of all my guests.

We went to catch some of the Andersonville Restaurant week. There were several good choices, though this is another restaurant that seems to think mashed potatoes don't need gravy; that's wrong, they do need gravy. I thought $9 was a bit much for a glass of wine, but their house chardonnay was pretty good. The big problem I had was the noise level. The dining room wasn't full, but it was loud, even with the TV sound turned off. Also, dimwit diners kept both doors open at the same time. It gets cold very quickly when stupid people do that.

Upon entering the establishment, the bartender gave us a very friendly greeting. We were told we could sit anywhere we liked, menus were provided, and drink order was taken. Aidan(?) was very kind and hospitable. 🙂 Unfortunately, my entree was only lukewarm. I didn't want to complain, but that was a little disappointing. My drink, a blood orange paloma, was very tasty. 😋 I would return to Hutch: Andersonville again. 😊

We came for brunch on a Saturday and was pleasantly surprised with how many people were there. It’s a small space so I imagine had it been full, it would’ve felt cramped. The food was average: my boyfriend really enjoyed his chicken but my steak burger fell flat. Overall, we would try it again.

Food is good quality and drinks are also quite good. What really separates Hutch is the service. We had a larger group birthday party and the service was just exceptional. Found the right balance of attentiveness vs letting us enjoy ourselves, recommended good things, and just took care of us.

Also, compared to a lot in the area, this is a fantastic value. The bill came out significantly lower than we expected.

Strongly recommend.

Pork chop was delicious! Service was a little slow but still made it out in time for our show. Our only real complaint is the chairs. They are SO uncomfortable, especially for normal sized older adults. Otherwise a good spot for comfort American.

We had a great time here! Drinks were on-point (smokey rosemary? yes, please!). Food was delicious. Server was terrific - friendly, but not invasive. Heck, we would have invited him to join us, he was that delightful, if he had time. We cleaned our plates and then made room for dessert, which was also delicious. Will definitely come back and recommend.

I’ve been to the Lakeview location many times, and this was my first time at the Andersonville location. I find the staff in Lakeview to be far more warm and welcoming than what I was greeted with today in Andersonville. Food was still good, but definitely disappointing to not get the same level of warmth as I’m used to from the staff.

We went for our anniversary dinner (little more low key than usual since we went on vacation the week before). We enjoyed the food a lot but it took a long time to come out. We ordered a starter but it didn’t come out until the same time our entrees did and the starter was a little cooler than it should’ve been. Taste wise though, it was delicious! One of the best veggie burgers I’ve ever had and my boyfriend loved the steak burger! Excellent value.

I love the Hutch brand and its food. But had the avocado toast and it was super bland and dry. The Sriracha chicken had no flavor and was super dry. Avocado toast is hit or miss so guess this one is a miss. Everything else was good! Service, drinks and ambiance. And my man loved his chorizo Benedict!

I dined there on Sat the 19th with a group of friends. Our server was very pleasant, but could have been more attentive. We had to get up to get more water for our table. I ordered the beef brisket and it was dry and hard. It came with a very good horseradish sauce and I was never able to get her attention to get more.
I got up and went to the restroom in the hallway and the room I went in had no toilet paper. I went out and told the host who disappeared into another doorway and I waited for him. He came out without toilet paper and told me it was not his problem or responsibility, that the bar next door took care of the restrooms. I asked if there were others and he said no, that was it. So he told the busy bartender on the other side and the 2nd restroom became available which did have paper. Both toilets were not flushed and it took an engineering degree to figure out the correct way to wave your hand. Don't think I will rush back there

Sorry for your experience that evening, I remember you fondly. I would have loved to hear more about the brisket that evening it would have been my pleasure to replace it with a more pallet-able one. Please note there are additional bathrooms in that door I disappeared away in, downstairs. It is posted clearly on that door. Our new fall menu is out, I'm sure there is something you would enjoy, contact me here at HUTCH my name is John, I am the store manager.

Everything was great besides the lights that kept becoming bright and then flickering to a dimmer level. Seemed as if there was an electrical issue. Didn’t ruin our experience, but was slightly annoying.

Nice people. They have a very nice happy hour also with nice wines and bar foods at a great price. I ordered the avocado chicken pizza because it was something I have never had. It was one of the best pizzas ever!!! Also the fish tacos are very good. Has them there before. All in all an enjoyable evening with good food and friendly atmosphere.

Despite my 3-star review for this experience, I'd still give Hutch in Andersonville a recommendation to friends. On this particular occasion two things really steered my review towards less than 4 stars. 1) The time for our service was terrible. Our waitress was quickly attentive and took our drink orders and then food orders when we received our drinks about 5 minutes later. Excellent timing! Then it took 45+ minutes to receive our food. We watched as table after table around us received food with many of them having ordered after us. It was disappointing to say the least. 2) The breakfast pizza my girlfriend ordered was very unappealing. She found it to be far too thick with a load of bread with potatoes on top as well. The cheese was crusted on around the bacon. I enjoyed my breakfast grilled cheese and my friend enjoyed his meal though.
On other trips, I've had way better luck with Hutch for both food and service, so I still give it a nod as a great breakfast spot, but this time was a bit lackluster.
