Stopped in late after work day. Nice bar atmosphere and local favorite. Good wine selection. Homemade chips are great. Really good burgers. Wide variety of dining options with excellent choices. It is a popular resturant, be prepared to wait during peak times. Will definitely try this again.

Nothing really notable about Chops and Hops. But choices in "downtown" Watkinsville are minimal. So if you dont want to go to Athens and want to take your kids, this is a good choice. Good beer selection and service is quick. The menu has enough choices for most people. The chops refer to pork and lamb chops but they also... More

I have been hearing about this place for a while now, and I finally made it in for dinner. The menu was great with a wide variety of appetizers, sandwiches, salads, and full entrees. Everything on the menu looked tasty, but I decided on the nightly special. The food was good, but not really anything to write home about. Nothing... More

We were seated in an upstairs very large room and had only 1 server. Although the server tried the service was slow and therefore the food was cold when served. The restrooms only had room for 1 person at a time and were outdated. The main dining room was downstairs with easier acess.

We stopped over for an early dinner and had the seafood grits meal and the steak special. Both were out of this world awesome. Cooked to perfection! I would go back again ...

Good place to grab a brew ... micro or in a bottle (they even have Yuengling!) and a bite to eat, chill with friends, etc.

So many good choices. Specials are often awesome. Not rushed. Fair prices. Tuesday night half price wings with small servings of four beers makes a delightful evening too.

Popular & a wait during peak hrs. Reservations are only for 5 and more. The service is great and the food choices are the best. Everything I have had is delicious. The upstairs is great for larger parties. Parking can be a challenge, but it is worth it. One of the best places in Watkinsville! Love the daily specials &... More

We ate here for lunch on New Years. The food is unbelievable. I've eaten everywhere in Athens and this place is right there with last resort and south kitchen. It's really that well done. A few knocks...it's a little on the small side and the location is a little ways out from the main Athens area. It makes up for... More
