It was a delightful brunch! I ordered eggs bnedict Florentine and it was perfect. The sauce was light and did not overwhelm nor cover up the wonderful taste of the other ingredients. I looked at the dinner menu and am eager to give partake of several items.

The food is a little pricey, but considering this is a gourmet restaurant in a small town, it is to be expected. The Chef greeted us upon arrival and the staff was engaging. The restaurant is in a Civil War era home and the grounds are immaculate. The food was excellent and the menu is creative. We will be returning.

This was our second visit for dinner. The food was even better than the first time, which was excellent. The special of the night was a two-bone pork chop that was as tender as I've ever had. The same venue had a wedding reception occurring at the same time, so parking was a challenge and on grass. This could be a problem after a heavy rainstorm, but we did find a spot only a few yards from the entrance. We'll be back frequently.

Previous Brunch experience was excellent. First time for dinner; we'll go back soon for both, for the food. Overall dining was a very good experience. The only rub was our young waiter is still in training and failed to keep up; he did not offer a taste of the wine; cork was already out of the bottle when he brought it to the table; had to flag down a waitress for water refills (she brought a carafe), he never refilled wine glasses, we had to ask for steak knives after three of us ordered steaks, etc. When the menu says "sharable" they mean large portions. Be sure to make reservations as they were sold out.

Historic home in the middle of downtown Montgomery, converted to a B&B and eatery. Surrounded by beautiful grounds that are home to several old Pecan trees, fragrant Ligustrum and beautifully kept gardens. Comfortable, warm ambiance inside. We were greeted with a self-playing baby-grand piano and a cheerful welcome from the owner and promptly shown to our table. All three courses of the meal were a home run! Enjoyed a nice conversation again with the owner and assured him that we'll be back. I didn't dare pull out my cell phone here for fear of ruining the pleasure of taking in one of Montgomery's little-known secrets!

Perhaps the best steak we have ever had. And all of the staff were exceptionally attentive. Although we only get to eat at Hodge Podge occasionally, they remembered us and treated us like family. We definitely want to start going there more often.

Great food good n a beautiful setting. We have eaten breakfast at Hodge Podge Lodge before but this was our first time for dinner. It did not disappoint! The menu is not extensive but has several options from steaks to seafood and pasta. Although we didn’t have desert the options looked fantastic. We’ll definitely return.

The Chilean Sea Bass is incredible- probably the best I’ve had anywhere in the country. My husband enjoyed the tenderloin as well. We split the spinach salad to start with, and it was delicious as well.

The portions aren’t giant, which we love. This isn’t like eating at other establishments where each dish could feed an army. We felt that this was a great, relaxing dinner in a more intimate (there are not a lot of tables) environment. Can’t wait to go back again!

Beautiful surroundings. The food was well-prepared, but the menu is limited... It's an event venue, and the menu reflects that. The carrot cake was great! Up-charge for splitting an entre, and when we asked for bread, we were offered crackers with the salad. No explanation for why no bread.

Waitress was polite and pleasant, but inexperienced. A couple of gaffes (brought dessert tray mid-entree, no forks with the carrot cake) for which she apologized.

They're aren't a lot of fine dining restaurants in Montgomery/Conroe, so I would still recommend this one, but it just fell a bit short.

Thank you for your critique. We appreciate the opportunity to improve and all suggestions help us to train our servers to be their best! Our menu is limited, yes. We have only been open and offered our dinner options for about two months. Stay tuned as we are expanding our menu and operating days in mid May. Thanks again for taking the time to share your experiences! Warmly, Ceff Jeff | Owner

The food was okay, nothing more. The presentation was a terrible attempt at cleverness. Mis-matched, and presented on a cutting board, making it awkward at the least, sloppy at best. Waitress, although pleasant, was forced in action. Response of "my pleasure" made me feel I was at a white tablecloth version of Cick fil A.

We admire every guest that takes the time to share areas that we can improve upon. If you do have a chance to pop in again we can always plate our dishes on other vessels. Chick Fil A happens to have the best and most consistent high service marks and we do tend to train our staff to serve with unconditional gratitude...it beats the alternative for sure. Thanks again for your comments. Every suggestion is highly regarded. Chef Jeff Owner

I had heard so many good things from people but I have to say I was disappointed. The man that sat us was extremely friendly. Our waitress Wendi seemed very pre occupied and overwhelmed. The service was below expectations. We ordered mimosas and it took awhile for them to arrive, she came back to table and said Oh you haven't gotten your drinks yet. Just seemed like too long in between times we interacted with her. I thought I heard her say someone called out. Maybe she is in the wrong because she only had about 6 tables with no more than 3 at any one table. The food tasted good but was just too much food. The size of the triple decker was ridiculous. Can't say I will be back.
