Waiter was very helpful. Food was good with his suggestion. My husband had the broiled seafood platter, I had the filet. Great vegetables served along side and good cocktails.

We are lucky to have such incredible views of the bay and the Bay Bridge. But we couldn't survive if the food and service didn't match. Thank you for taking the time to recognize the attentive service and the great food.

What was the question exactly? What is Hemingway's history and growth? I suppose you could go to their website and find that out. Or go to the local township where it's located and get the info. Good luck.
