We've been coming to Hemingway's the past couple years when we come up to Wisconsin to see Jimmy at Alpine. Last year we heard Brenden Mayer play outside, with other great music both inside and out. This year was disappointing. The music we heard both inside and outside was karaoke, at best. The food was marginal and the place is... More

A friend and I stopped in for lunch last Sunday. At first look, the building and grounds are in need of some TLC. Peeling paint, weeds coming up through patio cracks, worn and torn grass roof on the outdoor tiki hut bar, VERY dark interior. This is mid-July. Any place near a resort town should have it's Sunday best on.... More

Waitress had no knowledge of the menu, food or drinks....Food took forever, drinks took forever, many wrong orders, and again waitress was clueless....Owner/Manager came over at end of dinner, with no apology when we mentioned how poor the service was, only excuses....We thought we were being Punk'd, unfortunately no cameras showed up at the end....I would hate to see the...

Owning a restaurant ourselves, makes us a little more critical of restaurants. Hubby had the Jambalya and said it was great! I had a pork sandwich which was a little dry. Although they have different bbq sauces available on the table, the sauce did not come out too well. Looks like they had not been rinsed out btw refills. Pickle... More

My family (group of 5) and I went to Hemmingways because of the great reviews. We wanted cocktails and appetizers. Although we sat at the bar there were many moments that our empty glasses went unnoticed. The bartender talked to the regulars and zoned out on the rest of the bar and customers. This is a cute place. Need to... More

We have been to this restaurant on several occasions. We have enjoyed the food, decor, entertainment and mostly the staff. Their parties are always great. The staff is always in a great mood, but who wouldn't be if you worked in Key West year round. The Shrimp dishes are the best.

We went there last weekend for dinner. Although caribbean themed, the menu was kind of eclectic and didn't really hit our appetite. For example, the fish options were trout, tuna or salmon. The beer was served in a can. We each had an appetizer and left. My chicken fajitas contained little meat and were very dry. My husband thought the... More

We're huge fans of Friday Night Fish Fry, tried them all. We tried this out last week and it was absolutely awesome! Great portions, cool/fun atmosphere, and really great food. We even got free tickets to the movies as part of some promotion. We'll definitely go back there and it's worth finding it just on the edge of town on... More
