I reviewed Hemingway's about 5 years ago when it was in another location in the same shopping center. Not much has changed except it is a lot bigger, and the windows are clean. More importantly, you have to go to the outside patio area to smoke. It is still seat yourself and it is still no frills and very boisterous... More

In early 2015 Hemingway’s re-opened in a new location in the same shopping center, and now it’s more welcoming by several orders of magnitude. The place is new and clean, the service is friendly, smoking isn’t permitted inside, and there is a patio seating option.... More

I swear I saw them spit in my drink and food. The place is teeming with racists. They're racist. I'm an Asian.

We recently spent an entire Saturday afternoon at Hemingway's Saloon. We were there for a cigar event. Service was great, and the food was above average for bar food. Yes, you can smoke inside, and our group took full advantage!. Looking forward to our next trip there in October!
