“Tasty Salad, great Tomato Bisque, and they have a Vegi menu! Ask!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

The special Tomato Bisque was great with lots of basil, and I really enjoyed the garliccy salad dressing on my baby lettuce salad. The mashed potatoes were average. Mine are better. :-)

They have a special Vegitarian menu...but don't advertise it...We found out because we told them we are vegitarian. Ask and you will get! 7 Items on this menu.

“Good, really good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Just went there tonight, my wife loved the Mahi Mahi Piccata.
I had the New York, it was ok, but I have no taste so I'm going with my wife's impressions.
Our server Jonathan really made the meal great, he was really good at suggestions and overall is the benchmark for a great server.

“DELICIOUS - FANTASTIC PLACE - HAD A BLAST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Had an exceptional (and huge!) lobster dinner tonight here - and on a $16.95 special!! Fabulous food, a wonderful Margarita - yet, they were extremely reasonable for everything - my boyfriend had a wonderful shrimp and steak dinner which he enjoyed immensely. The atmosphere was festive in the nearby lounge area - a birthday was transpiring and the crowd was having SUCH fun! The restaurant section per se was PROMPT in service - they were at our beck and call as soon as we barely sat down!! You always find regulars patronizing the Hindquarter - very friendly people here, both customers and servers alike.
Obviously they care about the ambiance they provide, the atmosphere warm and the food quality top notch. Inventive dishes - therefore it's always an absolute joy to visit here. The Hindquarter is always dependable, flexible with their food preparation and they deliver a perfect experience every time we visit. We invariably laugh, enjoy our meals and return every time we have an occasion we want to be sure is memorable! The Hindquarter is truly a point of pride in Santa Cruz area!
