It's an experience, a show of sorts, and they make a point to take care of you and your guest. Yes it's loud, constant hustle, but they don't rush you. My son in his early 20's started coming here with his friends, he brought the family and now we eat here eat here at least once a year, and we bring others.
It's a short trip from Vallejo, and makes for a nice night out.

We have eaten at the HOPR many times over the past three decades. The meat portion has gotten smaller, although, the taste is still great. Also, the meat is less tender as it was difficult to cut when requested rare or medium rare. Otherwise, we still enjoy going to the HOPR.

Frontdesk is very unfriendly.
Other than that, the service is very good. I ordered prime rib. It is tender but I more prefer a grilled rib eye style.

Literally sat down for less then 10minutes. We both had our drinks. Warm bread, with some butter. Placed our order, and with in 5minutes had our plates. My 17year old daughter stated "this was faster then McDonald's, and this is real food". Love this place, I try to come at least 4 times a year.

One of favorite restaurants to dine in for a special occasion. The service is always great. Too: let your waitress/waiter know that you’re celebrating and occasion and you’ll receive a little surprise. They also provide a complimentary souvenir picture.

I love House of Prime Rib, having been coming here since I was in my teens. Food is still consistently spectacular. I eat everything! Service is still attentive. The only reason I did not give 5 stars all around is the noise level. For just a wonderful meal, I would love to be able to have a conversation with my dinner party, without shouting or leaning across the table to hear them. Perhaps I'm getting older, but I don't recall the noise level being this high 5 or even 10 years ago.

I would definitely recommend HOPR because normally it is GREAT and I'm hoping this was just an off night. The steak was very fatty. I got less than half of the meat after cutting away the fat. I understand fat gives it flavor but I also want to enjoy some of the meat itself. :D The salad was amazing as always. The side of creamed spinach was so small. Normally it's a decent portion but this was all of 3-4 bites with a fork. Normally you also have a choice of a baked potato or mashed but for some reason they said they were not making any baked potatoes that night. Seems like a really odd thing to be out of or not able to make for an entire evening. Other than it was all good. Normally it's nothing less than perfect so again, I'm hoping it was a fluke and not a downgrade in its normal service. Will definitely give it another chance and update this review as needed!
