We wandered in late on a Monday and were treated to some great jazz music and really good burgers. My husband raved about his local burger and I enjoyed my veggie burger. The side salad was delicious with fresh local greens and the soup of...More

We appreciate being able to get a good meal in pleasant surroundings even when we arrive late. The salmon entre and salad were well proportioned and tasty. The wine was a special deal that night and the server offered us wine glasses and the cooler...More

If you're looking for good food, a bartender that knows how to make a proper drink and an atmosphere that lures you to stay longer than plan, then this is the place. The Library offers a great ambience, supplemented weekly by the best jazz background...More

Great place to hear some music and sip a few cocktails. I prefer more blues type music but the band that played the night we were there was old classic R&R band.

We arrived around 8:00PM on a Wednesday night for a late dinner. The restaurant is located in an old, historic hotel and is quite interesting just from that standpoint. There was a guitarist playing inside, which I personally find distracting and usually too loud, so...More

You can go to the Hume Hotel website and there is a section called Menus. It is the same menu for all departments within the hotel!

The Hume Hotel has three different food outlets to eat in that offer the same menu and a vast array of food. A family restaurant called the General Store, an intimate fireside lounge featuring live jazz called the Library Lounge or a lively, old English-style bar called Mike's Place Pub. We cook up amazing steaks, pastas, seafood, the '100 Mile Burger', sandwiches, salads and homemade desserts. There is a full Gluten-Free menu available. We are also known for a legendary Sunday Brunch that goes from 11am - 2pm every Sunday. We are popular for our consistency, generous portions, food quality and reasonable prices all to be enjoyed in a character atmosphere that was built in 1898. There is no place like the Hume.
