This place advertises they are an Irish pub, not sure why other that they sell Guinness. The food is good, with an open kitchen so you can see whats going on. They have music but is never Irish and they have an outdoor area. Popular with the locals,

Love all of their dishes. Great Fish and Chips, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Bangers and Mash -- Much better than we had in England. Hamburgers and chicken tenders are also excellent plus good selection of beer.

Another great experience. We normally frequent the "Hop" but had been in a few months. Although not surprised, I was pleased to see they were still in the game. Fresh ingredients, hot food hot, cold food cold. Exceeds expectations of "pub grub".

We went for their large nachos which were the best around. Thus time we were disappointed. Barely any meat, not much cheese, not worth $16. We hope they re-discover their past

When we first moved to CB in 2011, HopLite immediately became one of our favorite places to hang with amazing pub food, highly attentive bartenders & wait staff and mostly other locals who bring their dogs to shoot the... pool. Yes - they have a pool table here. I was just there yesterday, and while Chazz (the owner) was a... More

Stopped in for an Irish pint and was pleasantly surprised. Ended up eating and the food was good as well. Beth at the bar was amazing and we will be back whenever we're at the beach!

Although not located on the water, still a good place to check out if you are craving Irish food and beer on tap. There is a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Outdoor is a little more "rustic" but still works just fine. We had the bangers and mash (YUM) and the corned beef and cabbage. Corned beef was great... More

Irish Pub says it all, of course Bangers and Mash were on the menu, although I chose the cheeseburger, larger burger with plenty of tasty french fries. My daughter ordered an appetizer for the three of us, fried mac and cheese balls. Imagine a three inch diameter ball of fried mac and cheese with a spicy dipping sauce, Six came... More

My family arrived here after arriving in town on a rainy night. There were very few people there and the atmosphere had more of a local, dive bar feel than an Irish pub. We thought about leaving especially since our daughter was with us but decided to stay simply because we were ready to be out of the rain. I'm... More
