Came in on a Sunday hoping to get a great meal and catch the Chiefs game - successful on both. Lots of screens, about a 30 minute wait inside or out. Sat inside and great selections of beers and food choices. Service was quick and...More

We come to Lincoln, Nebraska once a year for the biggest autocross race in the country. This is a great place to get together with many friends to enjoy food, beer, and just each other's company. They have long tables for such an occasion. The...More

Had a great time at HopCat. It has a great atmosphere and decor, good food and the beer selection is excellent. The only downside is that you have trouble finding some of the local beers once you get back home.

It was a 3-4 block walk from the Hilton where we stayed for a wedding in the Haymarket area. There is a large beer list with, I think, a 30-count of locally brewed options. I tend to go the local route when traveling and our...More

The beer selection is outstanding. We just ate here last Saturday night after a long day at NSE for UNL. Both of our dishes were excellent. Service was great. Very diverse restaurant. I look forward to eating here again.

Busy murals pay tribute to rock and roll artists. Repurposed liquor bottles form pendant lighting. And the list of brews is as long as the rail road tracks in the park out front. We enjoyed a few local brews. The spinach salad with pretzel croutons...More

We like to stop by HopCat often before PBA events. The beer selection is out of this world (but can be a bit pricey when considering some of the sizes). The food is outstanding. The crack fries are delicious and the happy hour specials (5...More
