The restaurant showcases Ogden’s well-known dedication to fresh ingredients and farm-to-table fare. Beverages include handcrafted cocktails, craft beer [draught and bottle], and an All-American wine list including eight on tap.

A few ways to begin a meal might be: Grilled Cheese Bites served with tomato herb sauce; Short Rib Nachos made with melted cheddar and horseradish sour cream; and Iva’s Fried Chicken Salad, a dish made with gemstone lettuce, pickled beets and a creamy buttermilk herb dressing.

Sandwiches such as Short Rib & Pork Belly Patty Melt with provolone, Gruyère, mushrooms and “fancy sauce”; and Bradley’s Meatloaf Sandwich, a twist on the classic dish, served with garlic mashed potatoes on a toasted bun give diners an authentic pub-style experience.

Beer Battered Fish and Chips with hand-cut fries and Bradley’s tartar sauce and a classic Steak and Potato dish are hearty additions to the Hops & Harvest menu. For dessert, try Bradley’s acclaimed Butterscotch Pudding served alongside warm snicker doodle cookies or Cinnamon-Sugar Donut Holes served with milk chocolate custard.
