We were greeted by a host who smelled of cigarettes. As an ex smoker and waitress I found this unacceptable. Our waiter was quirky verging on "too much". He spilled the wine on our menu and table when pouring a taster but didn't notice. We...More

It was a really nice quiet and classy evening. The service was wonderful. The water was lovely, with delicious fruit. The appetizers were yummy, and I had the house salad, the one with almonds and Mandarin oranges. Highly recommend.

Dinner here with friends on a slow Thursday night. Nice ambience. We all ordered the 6oz Filet. Perfectly cooked. Katherine, our server, looked after our every need. Good selection of wines. Wines and food were a little pricy, however, well worth it.

Might be 2-3 blocks away ... nice walk after dinner (Hobarts is on Hunter, between George and Water; Galaxy Theatre is just south about 2-3 blocks at corner of Simcoe and Water).

Parking for Hobart's Steakhouse as it is for most downtown restaurants is street parking, municipal lots and the odd private lot that is near-by. Many of our guests after 5 pm find the Scotiabank (Water at Hunter Street) lot... More

Hobart's Bar & Steakhouse in Lindsay was founded by partners Ken Found and Frank Peters and opened in April 2000. The Hobart's story is original and draws on it's namesake Hobart F. Peters, Phd's passion for the best in beef cattle production which is reflected in Hobart's commitment to value, quality, taste and service excellence. Renovated and expanded in 2009, the Original Hobart's Steakhouse in Lindsay delivers a warm and inviting atmosphere of contemporary finishes centered on an original antique bar built locally in the 1890's. An intimate but lively environment is enhanced by an ever growing collection of blues, jazz and soul music. Hobart's guests are treated to exceptional food, atmosphere and service whether for lunch or dinner; with a special person or part of a group of friends or co-workers. An October 2000 review closed with the statement " ... An incredible find and worth the drive from almost anywhere." Over fourteen years later it's better than ever. In late 2012 Ken negotiated a lease to open Hobart's Steakhouse, Peterborough in the downtown cafe district of Hunter Street West. After six months of extensive and award winning renovations to the main floor and basement of the 150+ year old landmark building the latest chapter in the Hobart's story began. Frank put together a superb team to offer the same extraordinary food and service in an intimate, comfortable atmosphere. Hobart's newest location will continue to set the standard for steakhouse restaurants in the Kawartha lakes region.
