My 2nd time to eat at HPL - a lunch and dinner. GREAT food both times. The menu and wine list is not huge but is well curated and has choices for all. Food is fresh, delicious and well presented with excellent service. Chef came to table to check satisfaction. A great dining option for this area which is slim on good choices. Definitely recommend!

Me and my five friends live in Bentwater. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff could not have been nicer. We celebrated one lady's birthday. Hodge Podge Lodge has wonderful food compared to the Bentwater Grill.

Food, ambiance and service was incredible. Beer cheese soup was best bite and very unexpected. Sea bass cooked perfectly and great size portion. Ask for Ferris, and will have amazing night.

Food was delicious - plating was nice, pasta was cooked fresh in house. Service was impeccable. Lots of happy diners, so the noise at times was a little loud, but nothing overwhelming.

Everything was great as usual. It was a cold day and the back room was very cold as well. I asked about the heat and I was told it had been turned up.

Anyway, maybe a little heater would help.

It was a great lunch anyway.

Thanks

This was my third time to eat here. Two for dinner and one for lunch. The first time we were not charged to share an entree. The entree was also much larger the first time. It was cold in our room and one waiter kept going out the back door and leaving it open. I asked to have my salad as an appetizer but it was brought out with my meal and I was not asked if I still wanted it, which I did not. We arrived at 6:30 and left at 8:00. We did not have dessert or linger with coffee. The food was delicious on all three visits.

Excellent food. Very quaint setting in an old house. But loud acoustics during lunch crowd.
Highly recommend the haystack appetizer, spinach dip appetizer, chicken salad croissant with sweet potato chips and anything brunch!! The pollo Limon pasta is very good too.

With the exception of not being greeted by the hostess, a waitress, and the manager, service was good.
The new bar is beautiful and the food is outstanding with portions large enough to share. Great place to meet for lunch or a take a date for dinner. Will definitely return.

We went for a special occasion holiday so things were hopping! Even with a reservation, we waited another 45 minutes to be seated. But that was an indication that people were not leaving having had a wonderful meal. Though they ran out of some of the offerings, the substitutes were just as delicious. We left stuffed and satisfied. The service was remarkable. Would like to go back on a more 'normal' night.

We loved the food and service, the garden view is breathtaking. We had the crab cakes and they were fabulous!! The wine selection was very good and reasonable for fine dining. We enjoyed every minute of the evening!! The owner came by to check on us to see if we needed anything, he was a breath of fresh air.
We liked it so much that we went back the next night!! Keep up the good work, it was a Fantastic experience. You can't go wrong here, Enjoy!!

We started off a little “confused” with servers. But they sorted that out. It is a bit noisy.

Brought a friend from The Woodlands and she was impressed. Would go back.

Parking is an issue especially after it has rained. No one wants to get “stuck”!

My husband and I had dinner here last weekend on a Friday night. It was cost and quiet and we had a great meal. My husband was very impressed. It was his first time, and I had been here for lunch but not for dinner.

We even got a complimentary apple pie from the chef since it was our first time.

We will be back!

My friends and I came here for lunch the other day. None of us had been here before, although I had heard good things about it.

I had the crepes, which were delicious, others had sliders, chicken sandwich, eggs Benedict, and one had a green salad with chicken salad on top.

Everyone loved their food. The chicken on the sandwich wasn’t quite cooked all the way through, but she ate around it.

There were a lot of people there and maybe not enough servers. It took a long time to get my cappuccino.

All in all I will go back. The house and grounds are beautiful.

Had lunch two days in one week. Excellent food and nice choices. The restaurant was packed with people enjoying the holiday decorations and fun. Service was slow and the waitress seemed unsure of her self. All in all though, it was very enjoyable. Especially in the sun room. Will definitely take friends, family there and plan to use the "b&b" facilities also for out of town guest.
