AMAZING experience! Only negative is that we were told to put comments in the comment section for food notes. I put that I needed corn tortillas in my tacos because I have celiac. When we went to pick up the food they were in flour, so they had to be re-made. No big deal, but maybe work out that bug so the kitchen can see the notes. It was amazing, we will definitely be back when we are back in the area! Felt very Covid safe.

Hop Lot has the socially distanced formula figured out. We were verbally directed to (I reserved ahead of time) in a little outdoor bubble. We used a QR code to order, the waitress brought out drinks left them on a table outside of our bubble, and we received a text to pick up our food from the pick up window. Hop Lot did everything to make our one hour time slot feel like we were going out and feel safe at the same time. Excellent pork tacos, fried pickles and sweet hard cider!

Everything was amazing. Igloos were warm and vey clean. Very cool atmosphere and environment Everything was spaced apart. Loved how the service and ordering worked. Food was really good and priced right. (Thou it would be nice to have a salad and/or vegan option). Bathrooms were also very clean. Will definitively come back and also recommend.

Hop Lot is my happy place and never disappoints. We stayed in an igloo and felt so safe and had so much fun, though we have always felt VERY safe at Hop Lot even without the igloo. Their policies during COVID are absolutely top-notch.

1 hour was just not enough time for an igloo reservation. We quickly ordered food and drink once seated, but it was well over 40 minutes to get the food. The time was not at all a complaint except it did not leave near enough time to enjoy it. We ended up taking most of it home. And since we were hurried to eat, we did not order another round of drink. If we had another 30 minutes, we would have had at least one more round, likely two.

We were suppose to get a text when our reserved igloo was ready and didn’t..so we walked up and had a little less time to enjoy it as they kept our 60min window with the reserved time, not when we actually got into it. Also, we didn’t realize the menu was a lot smaller than the last time we visited. BUT you really can’t beat the atmosphere, location, and great beer of Hop Lot! Plus, the food was still really good!!
