Called in here a number of times for a few drinks. Very reasonable priced drinks and friendly bar staff. Particularly Zoe who was always pleasant and helpful. Nice view's and very friendly.

Cute little place on the waterfront Really cheap place to grab a beer with history It kinda looks like a place that Hemingway would hang out.

Inexpensive drinks, friendly bartenders, fresh daily lunch specials, and $1 Jell-O shots. YES all across the board!

Just ok. We grabbed sandwiches for lunch. Nice location which is why I gave 2 stars. Food is just as good as fast food chain unfortunately. I would skip this and go to the place next door instead.

Came in with five total girls for a psuedo bachelorette party. People looked at us with three heads. Odd bartender. Off duty waitress was giving us nasty attitude, and then wouldn't stop trying to hang out with us. The only plusses were the jello shots...More

I enjoyed a night out on the town with my spouse for a few beverages here at Hemingways. It is small and quaint enough that you can be yourself without worrying about trying to impress. You can get a couple cold beers for what it...More

Just happened to see a sign that said something like "Hemmingways if you can find us" with an arrow pointing down a driveway. When we got there a sign said "you found us" and that was just the beginning. Great atmosphere, great food, great service...More

I am not sure. There is outside dinning but they may not allow it. If you dog will lie down at your feet it may be ok. Why not call them and ask.
