You don’t need a reservation to visit us— just come on in! At Hattie B’s, we offer fast-casual counter service and seating on a first come, first serve basis. Because of our limited space and high volume of guests, we are unfortunately not able to reserve tables, host events, or appoint specific areas of the restaurant for larger groups. We do have picnic tables but may not be able to guarantee adjacent seating for groups of 8 or more. Larger groups may want to consider a pickup catering order (platters and large format sides) or a delivered catering. (See below). All guests should receive a table number before seating themselves to ensure the streamlining of our dining room.

Our phone lines open at 11am and may be throttled at times due to high demand or operations issues. We are grateful to have hundreds of folks visiting us daily.
