Went here for dinner. Food was excellent, staff were accomodating with a meat substitution, super friendly and very attentive to our needs. We felt great when leaving here, not just because we were fed, but the service was by far one of the best we've experienced! I highly recommend this place!!

The atmosphere is intimate and pleasing...the menu options are broad - from local favorites to traditional to some alternative selections. The staff was friendly, efficient, and very professional. The food came fast and well-prepared. Our drinks were great too. It was a very popular place for... More

You got it. Hops is always bustling for a reason! They show us how a local restaurant should be! They offer great food, the menu isn't long but what they do, they do well. There's a long list of beer and wine that are available with your meal to compliment that delicious food too. I have always received good service... More

This was our first visit to Hops which is a high-end burger restaurant in downtown Kalispell. It opens at 5pm every day and the four of us made a point of being there when the front door was unlocked. The interior is not very big but it has a wonderful classy atmosphere. We each ordered a different burger and they... More

We came in on a Saturday night and it was crowded but the wait wasn't bad. Nice choice of local beers and delicious appetizers. Several signature burgers including game burgers.

My wife and I enjoyed our meal at Hop's tremendously! 👍🏻😃 I ordered the Yak burger which is seasoned with a delicious Ginger BBQ sauce with a sides of crispy potato chips, fresh lettuce, tomato and Bermuda onion slices and a dill pickle slice. First of all it is truly Yak! That's right the one with the long hair, raised... More

My husband and I have been to Hops several times. They have the best burgers in the Flathead Valley! They offer Yak, Buffalo and Beef. My personal favorite is the bacon and Brie burger. Their coleslaw is crunchy, not wet, they have a nice wine list and a nice variety of beer. The servers are friendly and efficient. It's small... More

The burger here was pretty good but the chips that came with it were burnt and flavourless. We wouldn't eat here again.
