Great bar with an extensive beer menu. Also a large selection of whiskies from around the world. The food menu doesn't have a huge amount of choices, but that's not a bad thing. The food that is served is excellent. The burgers definitely have to be tried. I had the BBQ burger and it was very good indeed. The staff... More

Great drinks. The owner knows the brands and makes recommendations based on your tastes. Convenient when waiting on a train. Will stop there when work sends me to Fullerton again & again.

I have been to Hopscotch several times over the last few years. They usually have a tremendous beer selection, but the food is inconsistent. I have had some amazing dishes and at other times been astonished by how sub par some of the offerings have been.

It has potential to being a Great spot! Service is slow, and need to be more hospitable. I've also noticed that there's an odor that come from the restrooms, and these are located real close to seats at end of bar.

Need I say more. This was a great find in a wonderful restaurant and entertainment district. Plenty of craft beers on tap, huge whisk(e)y & bourbon menu with very good upscale bar food. Certainly a trendy stop not to miss if you are near the Fullerton SOCO district.

We went for lunch during OC restaurant week. We started with the turkey wings which were awesome. I then had the chopped salad with flank steak and my wife had the salmon sandwich. We both loved our meals but couldn't finish because it was just too much food. Great creative cuisine. It's also a whiskey bar, and because of that,... More

My wife and I went to Hopscotch last night for dinner and drinks. We took advantage of the Restaurant Week special and my wife had the steak while I had the salmon. We both started off with a watercress salad that was awesome, then the main course followed by dessert. Each meal was $20 and came with a drink. I... More

Went to see a musician we knew and stopped at the Hopscotch on the way. The waiter Jason was extremely good explaining the menu. Whiskey is not my favorite drink but he helped me pick a good variety. The burger was done the perfect medium rare. Juicy with great flavor. The wife had a flatbread with added chick which was... More

While this restaurant, or tavern, puts itself out there as primarily the place for whiskey varieties, they have a more than generous selection of craft beers from which to choose, and their food is great, and the atmosphere is most pleasant. We ate here after church one Sunday, and the joint was only about a quarter full of patrons, but... More

Not a big fan of this place in Fullerton. The food is either good or bad, just depends on the chef of the day.
