Good food and solid service. And they know how to make a great Old Fashioned. There were 15 of us in the party and they did a great job.

We had a lovely dinner. Both of us got steaks. I got that Bistro Filet. I liked the steak, but the risotto was okay. My husband got the sirloin, which was great. The potatoes that came with it were fantastic! A nice way to celebrate.

We were saying at the Ashford Manor just across the street and were recommended by the owners to visit Chops and Hops. Couldn't have been better. Great atmosphere, busy but not a problem. Staff were great, friendly and efficient. The food was also very good....More

They welcomed our dog to dine with us (in the outdoor area, of course) with a big doggy bowl of water. I had a Bleu Burger and it was very good. We were served a complimentary appetizer of homemade chips and blue cheese sauce...I think...More

Great food and service, but the beer selection tops any in the area. Great variety of local and regional breweries' offerings on tap, as well as in bottles and cans.

Stopped in late after work day. Nice bar atmosphere and local favorite. Good wine selection. Homemade chips are great. Really good burgers. Wide variety of dining options with excellent choices. It is a popular resturant, be prepared to wait during peak times. Will definitely try...More

Nothing really notable about Chops and Hops. But choices in "downtown" Watkinsville are minimal. So if you dont want to go to Athens and want to take your kids, this is a good choice. Good beer selection and service is quick. The menu has enough...More
