My Family had a great time, the only disappointment was we could only reserve the igloo for an hour. When we normally go out to eat we are at our table for a minimum of 90 minutes and if it’s dinner as entertainment as this was we normally spend 2 hours. We will definitely be back again!

They take COVID safety precautions seriously. Their protocols make it easy to be contactless. In addition there is plenty of outdoor spaces and fires to stay toasty. It was such a wonderful way to spend the day outdoors and an experience I will repeat for sure!!

As a family with small children, it was refreshing to see an establishment take reservations to ensure an appropriate dinner time for our family. This goes to show that you have your clients best interest at heart. The food was delicious, the ambiance was fabulous and the ability to social distance and have a great time was much needed. Thank you!

It was absolutely heavenly to get out of the house, have great beer and food, and see others enjoying it too! Felt totally safe and cannot believe our awful governor continues to keep our restaurants closed. Hoplot is exemplary in showing how to do it safely and still have a great time. Thank you!!!!

I've never been to Hop Lot, and have an exceptional experience during COVID-19 has a lot to say! Reservations were quick and easy to make, the food and drinks were incredible, and service was exceptional! Everything was clean, and I had no worries while eating in the Igloo! I can only imagine how this place is without a pandemic situation, or in the summer months!

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!
