“Great drinks, terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Came here for two World Cup games and Hopscotch was understaffed with incredibly slow and just plain incompetent service for both events.

A great atmosphere with good drinks and food. Just wish management would hire enough servers with proper training.

“Would visit again, nice food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

With a great mix of craft beers, good fun and board games you can play at your table, this really was an unexpected surprise.

Our waiter knew his beers and suggested one for us to try. We ordered food, I had the Imported German Bratwurst with Toasted Garlic, Caramelized Onions and Grain Mustard in a Double Bock reduction. Wow, just wow. Huge portions too!

Played Connect 4 at the table too (although I did lose 3-1 to my 11 year-old son!)

Overall, good food, decent beer and a great place to eat. Next time we are in Jersey City, we will definitely be coming back here

“A fun place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Unbelievable selection of craft beers. A fun atmosphere; board games on the tables, dart boards and a shuffle table. Tons of flat screen TVs. Fantastic service, a ton of beer options; the staff is very well versed on all of them. A great Sunday Brunch with the best coffee I've ever had!

“Horrible Service and very average food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

Our waiter was not familiar with the menu and brought either the wrong beer, or the right beer but not a 16oz glass which was the only one offered for this beer, but only a 10oz glass.
The pastrami sandwich I ordered turned out to be a corned beef sandwich and the fries along with the sandwich were soggy.

Never again will I visit this place
