We ate there this past week for the first time. We all had the seafood platter - wow - talk about a lot of food! Three of us could have eaten on one platter, but we had lots for the next day. It was my birthday so I got the cheesecake too. The price was too much for my pocketbook, but it was a birthday gift so I didn't have to worry about that. We also had the escargot - it was covered in garlic, butter and mushrooms so I have no idea what it really tasted like. We just ordered it so we could say we have eaten it. Over all, great food and service (we ate in the bar, there was a private party on the other side).

The hard "rolls" are brochen, german bread, suppose to be hard on the outside, soft on the inside.  Many of us eat brochen with butter, as a "nosh"-snack.  Like many italian breads/rolls, that is how it's suppose to be.  Had I gone there and the brochen was "soft" on the outside, I would have complained!

I'm surprised to hear the salad was not up to par.....  All you would have had to do was tell your waiter/waitress and they would have taken it back, actually shouldn't have served it.  The final inspection of the food, is a matter for the server.

The last time I ate there I was order schnitzel and I was brought a piece of meat that was almost burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. They did take the meat back and brought me the same piece of meat back. It was HORRIBLE!!!!!  I will never eat there and again and I would not recommend eating there to anyone.

For those that like this kind of food, here is a great one to try in Jefferson City if you are up there, behind the Truman Hotel (old Ramada Inn).  Was a favorte hang out for Governor Carnahan, we at there many times (yes a Democrat Governor and Republican political worker at the time).  GREAT food.  http://www.dassteinhaus.com/

I have never had a bad experience at the Hub, and I've been going there for years.  I do know that cooks can have "off days", it's very possible that's what happened, and I'm sorry you had the experience you did JuneBug67.

The hub is one of the best places in town to eat. I have eaten there plenty of times in the ten years I have lived here, and I have never once had a bad experience with their food. The only complaints that are reasonable to me are the ones that people make about the food not being as good as authentic German food, and those aren't even that reasonable when you consider where we live.
 
P.S. If you say the food wasn't good at the Hub, then I say you are a liar. Good day, sir. I SAID, "GOOD DAY!!!"

This conversation reminds me of the time someone I know went to an Italian restaurant and was unhappy that almost everything on the menu was pasta. (True story, BTW -- I broke out laughing until I realized they were serious.)

It's been a few years since I've eaten at the Hub since for me, upscale restaurants are "special occasion" things I do for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Things could have changed, and I do know a number of German military wives who don't like the Hub because they don't think it's authentic enough, but they believe it's the best German restaurant in the area. I do think the objections voiced here, especially about the rolls, may have more to do with people not liking German cooking styles than not liking the Hub.

Trust me Darrell I know about German rolls lived in Germany twice.  I have only been in this area for 7 years and raw on the inside and practally burnt on the outside, is pretty sick. I will say this was several years ago but enough for me not to go back.  I worry about getting sick because of food not prepared correctly. 
 
One last thought, I would hardly call the Hub "upscale".

Fair point... if you've lived and eaten in Germany then you have an educated opinion; we simply disagree, or perhaps I was luckier in my visits to the Hub. I can say that I didn't have your bad experience and if I had been served undercooked food, I would have a similar opinion.

By "upscale" I mean around here something higher than Ryans or our other typical chain restaurants. Other than The Pointe, I'm not aware of any restaurants in this immediate area which serve the sort of food I would have called "upscale" in other communities where I lived, and The Pointe markets their food and their window view rather than their internal decor and other amenities -- there simply isn't enough of a market around here to support a high-end restaurant like what I would have considered "upscale" in places like New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, or even in smaller cities like my hometown of Grand Rapids.

Maybe Rita would benefit from knowing that some people think her food is not good and have had bad experiences.  I've never eaten there, lived here since 1970 and never eaten at the hub.  I'm not a fan of German food with the exception of German potato salad.

It's been over a year since the last post... I haven't been to The Hub, but my family & I are debating on trying it. Does anyone have any recent opinions on it?  What would you suggest ordering? We've been trying to visit the "lesser knowns" in the county to see what it has to offer!

The Hub is still a wonderful place to eat. I have dined there for over 20 years and it's great. For those that have not gone in a few years you should go back. I remember about 3-4 years ago the food wasn't up to The Hub's standards during a few visits the schnitzel was burnt and the geman potato salad tasted scorched but it didn't take long for the kitchen to be back on track and up to their standards they have always set. I highly recommend the Hub to all that ask.
