I ate lunch here yesterday with 3 co-workers and the food was good and the service was excellent. We had a late lunch while driving through Utica and smelled the barbecue from the street that brought us in. The smoked chicken caesar salad was great, as was the brisket, nachos and pork sandwiches. Service was fast and friendly. I would... More

We thought we'd stop by for a "Green Beer" to round out St Patrick's Day, and because our usual haunt seemed to be so crowded, we chose to drop into the Smokehouse. Big mistake. We sat down, and waited..... and waited.... and waited.... Two servers passed our table 8 times, and never uttered a word. It was clear why this... More

The food here was not as good as I expected but they have nice views. Specialize in pulled pork and other barbecue dishes.

Stopped in at Hogs Hollow during a fun downtown scavenger hunt. They did an amazing job with the updates to this place. Fantastic food and drinks in the heart of downtown Utica. Definitely will return during baseball season at Jimmy Johns field just a short walk down the street.

Highly recommend their Mac and cheese with brisket (and bacon!!!). Friendly atmosphere. Great MI vodkas, gins, beers, etc. Definitely recommend for friends or couples!

Good, friendly service. Really good food. Excellent Mac and Cheese keeps the family happy. But HH's has the best darned brisket in the area. Too many places serve lean brisket... but THIS is real brisket. Oh, yes.

Went here with a group of friends for brunch. We enjoyed some mimosas and bloody maries. They have very fun and unique garnishes for their bloody maries, which were delicious. Their brunch menu has a large variety and I had their Spinach and Feta Omelet. The omelet was good, but too much butter for my taste. Service was okay and... More

We have been at last 5 times. First, you can always get a table, which is great. Selection of food and sauces is great. Love the brisket and the pulled pork but the ribs were surprisingly tough. Service is all over the place, even the same server can be attentive one night and not the next. Acoustic music on Thursdays... More

Hogs Hollow is in downtown UTica and serves a variety of barbecue meats and great Mac and cheese. They serve a good variety of mixed drinks also.

Went here with colleagues from work. My pulled pork sandwich was average. Pork had a lot of fat. Mac and cheese was okay but lacking flavor. Others said Cornbread, chicken, and brisket was "just okay". For the cost, Bad Brads is much better and only a few minutes away.

Thank Justin R
