We have gone to the Hopkins Inn for over 30 years and have NEVER been disappointed, in either the food, or the waitstaff and attention to detail. We have always been welcomed, with warmth and style, which befits such a lovely old inn. We have had many happy occasions at The Hopkins Inn over the years and plan to continue to do so, as well as to highly recommend this place to our friends and family.

My husband and I have been to Hopkins Inn many times over the years and have found ourselves less enthusiastic about it in recent years. Our most recent experience was on October 10, 2009, when we dined there for our 27th wedding anniversary. We like the Austrian/German menu because there do not seem to be many that are very good in the area. On this occasion, I ordered the French onion soup first. It tasted fine, but when I took the second bite, there was something which appeared to be part of a clear round plastic circle. There are many innocent ways I can imagine a plastic top from a jug getting into soup, so I was not overly concerned, but did discreetly get the waitress's attention and showed her the piece. I asked for a new bowl of soup very quietly and nothing more. I had only taken a couple of bites of the soup. She claimed the piece was onion skin. I replied that the top was perfectly round and that I had never seen onion skin that shape, but nonetheless wanted a different bowl of soup. She was not polite about it and before leaving the table, reached over me and grabbed the piece off of the bread plate where I had placed it and put it in her pocket! A different woman with a scowl and short blonde hair delivered the second bowl of soup to the table without even looking at either of us. She did not even acknowledge my thank you.
The meal my husband ordered was not accurately described on the menu, as it clearly said there was a sauce and he received it dry and then I was served a baked potato with two large black spots in the middle of the potato which even the different waitress who served it acknowledged was inedible. She was very polite and accommodating as were a couple of the other young waitresses who served us other portions of the meal. Considering the uneven, even rude, service and the less than mediocre food, I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
