This is close to where we live and one of our favorite places for a quick pleasant good meal. We always enjoy the complimentary chips with blue cheese dressing. This time we just had wine and entrees -- salmon and wagyu sirloin. The food (sides...More

We live local in Watkinsville and enjoy walking to lunch and dinner. Our experience recently was disappointing. We had a party of ten and nearly every meal was poorly prepared. The hamburgers were undercooked, the steak was red and the guest had asked for medium...More

I love taking guests to Chops and Hops. There is a great selection of beer and wine. The menu is good. My favorite thing there are the burgers and salads, but one day I might try a vegetarian option. My cousin had the winter squash...More

My wife and i recently dined at Chops & Hops based on a friend telling us about this quaint little hidden restaurant in Watkinsville. This hidden treasure was better than expected. Great ambiance, wonderful food, superior attentive service. Couldn't ask for more. Will definitely return............

Love this location for the proximity to Ashford Manor B and B! And the food is very very good. Last night we sat outside in February and it was lovely. The steaks are great and we added shrimp on our salad. They were excellent!

We’ve actually given multiple great reviews of Chops & Hops but this visit was awful. I ordered the fish of the day special which was blackened opah (moonfish). I never have had it and wanted to try it. First, I was completely underwhelmed by the...More

It depends on the time you want to visit. Early dinner is a better chance of a short wait. Dinner at 7 -8 could be longer with no reservation. I would suggest making a reservation especially on a weekend. It is worth the... More
