There is a bar in the center surrounded on three sides by stools and tables, and the kitchen is on the fourth side. The staff is friendly and accommodating. I was alone and not very hungry but the menu was very inviting. The bartender said it was no problem to order a half sized portion. Problem solved. So, in an... More

I have found it to be extremely difficult to find a place that can cook a burger to a desired doneness even though they all ask how you would like your burger cooked. Almost always med. well to well everywhere even when ordering medium rare. Hoplite has a great tasting burger and it was cooked perfectly me. rare. Great fresh... More
