We enjoyed having a restaurant for 5 of us to hang out together safely. HopLot has organized their place so you can get an igloo, order, eat, visit and relax without a hassle. It's a fun time for kids as well as adults.

Hands down our favorite spot during our TC adventure! Kids loved the igloo. Food was excellent as was the beer. Being our first time it took a little bit to figure out the food and ordering so an hour felt a little rushed with kids. However it was ok because the outside area was a very cool space to sit by the fire.

My kids loved the igloo dining experience! Such a fun idea for COVID friendly dining. All our food and beer was delicious! The guacamole and pullled pork were especially yummy! The s’mores experience at the end was icing on the cake. Great time!

We were in a heated igloo which was perfect for the inclement weather and having an infant with us. So glad we had reserved this option. We were happy with the protocol. Would not hesitate to go back any time of the year. An especially fun choice with our out of town guests.

The staff was so nice and friendly and accommodating! In a BEAUTIFUL location. I got the spicy chicken sandwich and it wasn’t was I expecting, it like an Indian spice to it? I was expecting more of a Nashville spicy kind of taste. It wasn’t bad, but I don’t know if I would order it again! But I would definitely go back again!!! The Dry It cider was AMAZING!!!!

The process was very streamlined and everything was clearly communicated. The igloo was fantastic and kept us nice and warm! The employees at every touch point were kind, appreciative, and very personable. This was a nice change from my last visit! We drove all the way from Grand Rapids specifically to visit your brewery.

The entire experience was top notch. You have perfected the art of making dining feel “safe” for your patrons. We have enjoyed the Hop Lot experience many times but this time was especially sweet as we brought our 92 & 85 year old Fathers for lunch. They were blown away and want to experience it in the evening when the lights come to life. Thank you for helping to create a special memory!
