I ordered the 16oz Rib Eye steak medium rare and my wife had the lobster mac and cheese. My steak had been served quite rare and was a bit gristly. My wife's mac and cheese did not have a creamy sauce as the menu had suggested but rather it was more on the 'soupy' side. Although the staff did address the issue with my steak and brought it back to me at the proper temperature, it was nonetheless quite chewy and not up to the standard I had expected. The staff were also kind enough to include a new twice-baked potato for my trouble but did not include butter or sour cream with it and I had to ask for it. As a result my wife and I did not dine together and I finished my steak as she patiently waited. We had both heard great things about Hobart's but I suppose we attended on an off night for them.

Server only visited out table about twice. Waited and waited for her to come back to order another beer but she didnt come back till she asked if we wanted are bill. Manager asked if our food was good right after we got it which was great but server could of focus on us a bit more, that would of been nice..

New to the area. Second visit.
Food was good. Service was average.
Ambience for a Valentine’s Dinner was mediocre.

Tables were very close together. Not at all what we were expecting.

We were weekly patrons of the Keg prior to moving to Fenelon Falls so this was ok in comparison.

Still on the search for a new go to in the area.

My boyfriend and I went here for his birthday he has never been. We had such a great time. The staff were friendly and helpful even with having changed the reservation time 3 times because he was late leaving the city. The food was outstanding and generous portions.

We frequent Hobarts mostly for special occasions because we can always count on having a pleasant evening. Service is wonderful, food is delicious and the ambience romantic.
Would highly recommend to family and friends.

Our first time there. The service was excellent and we enjoyed our meal. The only area for improvement would be the ambiance. Restaurant was to open and bright.

We had a lovely meal last Sunday...expected the roast beef dinner but the menu has changed. The sirloin steak was tasty as well...happy to see the twice baked potatoes back on the menu. The salads are also very nice. The only criticism I might have was that the dessert had too much caramel sauce on the bread pudding and it was gritty...sugar not incorporated well enough. Other wise we had a wonderful meal, our server was most attentive and pleasant.

This was my first visit. I worked in the hospitality industry for 19 years. The restaurant had music playing that was not very pleasant to listen to, especially at the volume it was being played at. On the menu is says that they will bring out your cut of beef for approval before the kitchen cooks it. They did not bring out the cuts beforehand. My son and I both ordered prime rib but it was cut closest to the shoulder, so it was very big around, but was quite thin. I would have been able to tell that was the case before if they would have brought the cuts out for approval. The steak was over salted, but was cooked to the proper degree of doneness. The veg was not seasoned at all, and the creamy garlic mashed potatoes were far from creamy. They were lumpy, quite dry, and well under seasoned, so I ordered a side of the gravy, and it was supposed to be beef gravy, but had so much tomato paste in it that you would think it was a tomato gravy. The waiter who served my son and I for his 16th birthday was hospitable though, but never checked on us after our meals came out. He ended up bringing a piece of cake for my son after our meal, which was a nice gesture. Our dinner for the two of us was just over $100 before tip. All in all I'm not confident in saying that I would return for another meal given the subpar food experience.

It’s a hidden gem. We never knew this steakhouse existed but we are so glad to have the opportunity to have a lovely dinner there. The waitress Sarah was lovely and the manager was very friendly. The food was excellent and we would definitely recommend this to our friends

Took too long to get the bills and my orange Almond salad was not brought to the table to take home.
I didn't remember until I was home.
Too bad.

4 of us attended. 2 had steak and it was very good. 2 had fish and it was poor, appeared and tasted not to be very fresh. Prices are very high for the Lindsay area. We have been customers of Hobarts for many years (since it first opened) and always found it excellent until this visit

The food was excellent, the service was excellent. The menu had changed slightly and they were no longer offering beer flights, however, the waiter ended up bringing over a couple sample glasses of the beers I was hoping to try. My wife and I went for our anniversary, and they brought us out a piece of cheesecake on the house. It was an expensive night out, but we knew that going in and expected that. I definitely would recommend it, however I would make it for a special occasion as it was pretty expensive.

service was amazing- server was very friendly, knowledgeae and welcoming!
steak was good - for the price there was no veggies with the steak and the baked potatoe tasted like it was re heated in the microwave and wasn't cooked fresh.
menu wise - if you dont eat steak ; hopefully you like seafood because most of the other options include seafood

I highly recommend for any occasion you may have. The service is with a smile. They do check with you occasionally for any wants and needs, this I appreciate. Our group was there for a birthday and we are sorry for being a bit loud, the family doesn t get together often anough. We had brought flowers and we were offered a recipient to put them in. They took the time to help us have a group picture. A dessert was offered to the b-day girl. Thank-you for this beautiful evening
I would like to add that this is perfect for a business meeting or a romantic evening. It has a cozy relaxing atmosphere, which you would all enjoy.

We arrived early for a reservation but were seated immediately. Service was slow, the food was good however it was not hot. We were celebrating a birthday and I told our waitress he did not like chocolate. She said the birthday dessert was a chocolate celebration and brought it anyway! I’m sure a substitution could be made under certain circumstances. Undecided about recommending to friends....
