    The cocktails were insanely delicious. My favorite: the Gin & Jam. I'm not even a gin drinker, but that magical little spoonful of homemade jam mixed in with the housemade sour will make anyone a fan. Read more

    First time here. Love this place + it's alley location. Food: The shrimp + grits were off the chain! Same goes for the mac + cheese. Alcohol: The gin + jam was amazing. I'll definitely be back.

    You may he tempted to fill up on the gratis corn bread. Don't. You must save room for the biscuit that comes with the fried chicken. Simply amazing biscuit

    Surprisingly amazing drinks menu! Loved the cornbread with honey butter. For entrees, try the hanger steak and lamb cheeks. Desserts come in very generous portions.

    Cheese-dense yet fluffy, the grits at Hops & Hominy are almost too good to believe. Reasonably priced, these grits will leave both your belly and wallet full. Read more

    Their fried chicken is nice and crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside, bursting with flavor! I can't help but order this every time I come here.

    Another Southern inspired spot we love. We were excited about the drinks - Bourdon Apple Cobbler, Hellapeno, and the Gin & Jam – but the unbelievably comprehensive wine list that really worked us up.

    Great local beer + delicious food (I got the pulled pork sandwich and highly recommend it) + bacon infused bourbon. You can't go wrong.

    if you're an east coaster, don't expect nickel-sized bivalves when you order the fried oysters. these things are the size of your thumb, served with an incredible jalapeño aioli...and delicious.

    Mac and cheese is beyond amazing. I'm not a huge fan of pork chops but I took the servers suggestion and it was amazing. This is a must visit.

    Black eyed peas fritters are wonderful. So are the cheese grits with bacon. Both are large portions, so be ready. Southern fried steak was marvelous. Such a good place to eat.

    Get the pork chop w/ okra & sweet potato purée. Hesitant since I don't really like pork chops, but this dish converted me into a true believer. Perfect combo of flavors!

    One of the best craft beer lists ever. Always good & always changing. The food is great across the board, but the Farm Burger and Bacon-crusted Mac&Cheeae are awesome!

    Really good mixologists here. Drinks were the highlight of the meal - unique and tasty concoctions. Also, try the sweet potato ice cream with melted marshmallow dessert. Nom nom.

    Take it from a table of Atlantan-turned-Franciscans: fried chicken and mac n' cheese are not to be missed. Gin and Jam and Whiskey Smash are our house beverage favorites.

    Wings are the best we've ever had. Mac and cheese was solid. Fried chicken was solid as well. Biscuits were out of this world . Service was amazing. Ask for Amanda .

    Cornbread! Delicious, comes w/ honey butter. Mac n cheese and fried chicken also A++. Wanted to <3 the carbonara, but it needed more egg and pasta too al dente.

    Crispy fish Benedict and the apples to pineapples drink are both great. My southern friends do NOT approve of their sweet tea though. It's SF sweet, not Georgia sweet.

    Fantastic ambiance, great history and even better service! Adam gave us the hookup for visiting the city. And his Hanger One vodka sodas are perfection.

    The shrimp and grits are amazing! Great service. If you aren't enjoying your cocktail, they will replace it with one you will like. Don't miss this place!

    Great southern food place in the heart of downtown. The shrimp and grits are my favorite. A little noisy so be prepared to talk loud.

    Order a "Dean Machine" from the secret cocktail menu. Ask around and maybe you'll bump into the guy it was named after while you're there.

    Southern food in SF! The fried chicken was awesome, but the side dishes stole the show. Cheese grits, black eyed pea fritters and Mac N cheese.
