IT looked great and while we went late afternoon and the restaurant was not that busy, it is a big restaurant, we were disappointed. The service was good and menu looked good. The salad I had was small for a main salad and the burger...More

This is a friendly downtown style pub offering reasonable prices in a pleasant atmosphere. Tables are somewhat crowded together and the place is noisy but that is part of the ambiance of it.

Visited Hub 51 on a Friday night. Had reservations. Ordered the guacamole and chips as appetizer--oh my goodness what a glorious dish. It was a very generous portion of quac and a great salsa. They refilled the chips and salsa. I had the butternut squash...More

HUB 51 has a great location and we especially enjoy the appetizers, salads, and tacos here. They also have some fun desserts! Service is good and we enjoyed the easy walk to our hotel!

Wonderful brunch menu and parking via meters was ample on a Sunday morning around 10:00 a.m. The menu had a wide variety of brunch items (many with a Mexican flaire) and portions were ample and prices very reasonable. Good choice for dining with kids and...More

We love this spot when we are in town. We get a pitcher of the award winning punch, sushi and chicken nachos. My husband had a burger and loved it. Generous portions and phenomenal staff! I highly recommend.

If it seems like HUB 51 is a continual party, that's just what creators R.J. and Jerrod Melman want. Their dad, Lettuce founder Rich Melman, always told them that the restaurant business should be fun, and, as Jerrod now interprets that advice, "We want to be as playful as possible, and have a good time with our customers and the people we work with." "Our goal for the menu was to create food we like to eat," says R.J. They loaded it up with sushi, tacos, sandwiches and burgers. Great salads and appetizers like the arugula Caesar and Pulled Chicken Nachos appeal to the bar crowd, while the filet mignon steak tacos and the charred sake salmon serve notice that HUB 51 is providing both a great time and wonderful food. With dozens of beers, wines and sakes, HUB 51 is all about what you like. SUB 51, a private lounge below the restaurant, becomes an exclusive nightclub on weekends, while space in the main restaurant is also available for private parties and semi-private events.
