Just ok – I think I too went in with high expectations -- and was a bit disappointed. The breads were yummy, the customer service was very good. I got the chicken & dumplings -- way too much food for someone to eat -- guess some people like that -- but I go more for the quality rather than quantity. The choices of salads are great -- I opted for the potato soup. It was grainy -- and lacked something--couldn't put my finger on -- maybe just some cream or something. It wasn't rich. I was expectating something special with the warm applesauce -- but it tasted just like store bought applesauce that someone heated up. Could that be right?
I watched the Food Network episode that featured Hob Nob Hill and the Chix & Dumplings looked so yummy. I guess if they make the dumplings for you fresh -- they would be yummy.. but mine tasted dry and old.
We wouldn't go back again -- but I think older people might like it for the value they get for the price they pay. The restaurant is kind of cool -- very old fashioned .. guess they would call that retro these days!
A blast from the past! – Good food at an old-fashioned place! The breaskfast is really, really good. Go for the benedict with spinach, the florentine. You'll gain 10 lbs. but its worth it!
Didn't meet expectations – Customer service was amazing, the food wasn't as great as the other review said it was. Maybe we tried the wrong stuff or maybe I went in with too high expectations, but it just wasn't what I was looking for. My friend got prime rib, which he said looked and tasted like roast beef. The turkey dish I got was alright, but it just didn't have the home-cooked taste I was looking for. Plates were pretty small also. We got there a little before 7p on a Saturday and there was plenty of parking so if you are worried just get there a bit earlier to avoid the rush. The pricing were all around the 12-17 dollar range.
THE BEST BREAKFAST PERIOD – THIS PLACE ROCKS,THEY BAKE ALL THEIR STUFF SCRATCH,HOME MADE CORNED BEEF OR ROAST BEEF HASH,BEST I HAVE HAD,DINNER IS GREAT A 11 IN MY BOOK
