Our second visit was as pleasurable as the first - the food was wonderfully prepared, the service by wait staff was excellent (Kim was just great!), and we walked away knowing we will definitely be back again! Hob Nob has become one of my most favorite restaurants anywhere! Highly recommended!

On the site of the old Hermitage Grill. Hob Nob is a exceptional blend of southern culture food with modern flair.

Diverse menu with old favorite like chicken pot pie and shrimp and grits to butternut squash lasagna and fig and prosciutto flat bread. Clean wine pairings. Desserts looked lovely but I was stuffed. Next time I’ll try the champagne cake.

Food, ambiance, service, etc. of this restaurant housed in the St Charles Inn along Queen Street just down from the main shopping area was excellent. We have dined there in the past with similar results, which is why we made reservations to go again. Highly recommended for any foodie!

This was our first dinning experience in NOTL and unfortunately it was a total disappointment. The food was very bland and poor and service was exceptional slow throughout.
Where we had expected to have a fine dining experience at the Charles Hotel it was well below standard.
The food and service was not worth the money.

Thank you BAJ89 for your recent feedback. I was disappointed to hear that you din't enjoy your dining experience while at the HobNob, as you can see by even the most recent reviews this is not the standard.

The review is a bit vague so I can't speak to what you ordered but I do wish we had the chance to make your stay more enjoyable while you were in the restaurant.

I hope that you will decide to give us another try during your next visit.

Warmest Regards,

Peggy Jo Wills

Good service. Free prosecco for my wife's birthday which was nice . One tiny little roll for the complimentary bread?! Really cheap there. Halibut was nicely cooked but had zero flavour. No seasoning at all and the waiter did not come around to offer any pepper or salt. My wife's chicken was dry and not very good. Very limited choices. I believe there were only 5 entrees to choose from. The dessert we chose was a strange chocolate pasta which was quite pathetic for $11. Overall its a 3 star restaurant with 5 star prices and I cannot recommend it. Will not return. Try somewhere else.
