We enjoy eating at Hopmonk for lunch in particular. The French Onion Soup is especially tasty. The pulled pork sandwiches are great. Service is always topnotch. Deerts are good too.

For a table of 8, we waited for 45 minutes, which is fine because we went at a busy time of day. The thing is, the food was standard brew pub fare and didn't really merit the wait. Sufficient kids menu. Very good garlic fries....More
