    Hamilton grill has been our go to place for my birthday and any reason we could find to dine there! It is a little quirky as is part of lambertville's charm, which I love. The food is simple, elegant, and perfectly prepared- right nearby your table, if you happen to be seated near the grill. Don't worry though- there's no smoke, only the delicious aroma of the grill. The place is often packed and the staff remains happy, efficient and engaging. The grilled shrimp with anchovy butter is a must, and the grilled whole fish (filleted at my request) was incredible. I can't wait to return!

    We recently met old friends for dinner and chose the restaurant based on menu and location. The menu satisfied everyone and the food was well prepared and delicious. The only problem was that one of the ordered appetizers never arrived. I would recommend the restaurant notwithstanding this shortcoming.

    We have been coming to Hamilton's Grill Room for about 15 years now and have experienced some ups and downs over the years…but always happily return as it's one of our favorite spots. Our recent visit was truly one of the best ones ever. We enjoyed oysters and both of the specials and our food was fabulous. However, what really made the night was the spectacular service. Our server was right on the money - attentive but not at all overbearing. We spent most of our dinner immersed in deep conversation, and several times I caught her out of the corner of my eye trying not to interrupt us while still attending to our needs. I wish I could remember her name! We are already planning our return visit - what a great night!

    We have been going to Hamilton's for many years and honestly it is some of the best food we ever eat - even having dined at many 1-3 Michelin star places. Every dinner at Hamilton's challenges those other restaurants in the quality of the food, creative menu and exceptional service. We will travel over an hour to just dine here for the night! Mark makes you feel like you are home and the restaurant décor is wonderful, inspirational and relaxing!

    Service was very good; food (fish) was outstanding. Portions were not huge, but that was fine for me. It's a BYOB, the atmosphere is very charming and relaxed. Would like to see more salad options (the 2 available were very basic, but good). I would recommend this place for an evening out in Lambertville with someone special. After dinner cocktail at The Boat House next door is a great complement to an excellent dinner at Hamilton's Grill Room

    We've been going to Hamilton's for nearly 30 years. The grill chef is still amazing, but the quality of the kitchen-prepared food varies. Our salads were uninspired. The wait staff is very good. No complaints there. It needs just a little more attention to detail to be the great restaurant that it has been in the past, but it was still a very nice evening.

    THIS WAS NOT THE FIRST TIME WE DINNED AT THE HAMILTON GRILL ROOM. WE HAVE NEVER EVER BEEN DSAPPOINTED WITH THE FOOD OR PRESENTATION. THIS HOWEVER WAS THE FIRST TIME WE WERE DISAPPOINTED IN THE SERVER, I BELIEVE HER NAME WAS JULIET. WE FOUND HER TO BE NOT FRIENDLY AND NOT ATTENATIVE TO OUR REQUESTS FOR SPECIAL NEEDS THAT WERE OUTSIDE OF THE SELECTION OF THE MENU FOR OUR MAIN DINNER. SHE DID NOT MAKE US FEEL AT ALL WELCOMED AT THE HAMILTON GRILL ROOM. IN THE PAST WE NEVER HAD A SERVER WHO DID NOT PRESENT THE STANDARDS OF SERVICE PRESENTED AT YOUR RESTURANT.

    They were able to accommodate my request to be seated outside and the table was great. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The appetizer of oysters was outstanding, fresh. We asked for a leisurely pace and he accommodated us well. The entrees were very good ((although my wife's salmon was a little over cooked) and the mushroom risotto side was outstanding. Hamilton Grill is fast becoming one of my favorites in Lambertville. Drinks before dinner at the Boathouse next door is always a treat.

    Tried this place on a recommendation from a friend. In all fairness they thought it was a good place for outside dining. We visited on a on/off rainy day so we dinned inside. Service was good. BYOB was a plus. We found ourselves not thrilled about the menu choices. We chose the specials, sashimi tuna and some kind of steak and the mushroom risotto. The risotto and vegetables and mashed potatoes were really good. The steak was a little tough and the tuna was nothing to write home about. The wine was good….oh wait, we brought that with us. All in all, we thought it was just ok. Maybe the dining experience would have been better outside but we doubt it. For the money, there are much better places to go.

  • Hamilton Grill Room Anniversary
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/22/2014
    we reserved on Open Table for an anniversary dinner. We liked the outdoor canal-side venue and the atmosphere, on a perfect summer night. However, service was indifferent and clearly not focused, as we were seated for over 15 minutes before our waiter came back for a drink order. During this time, others were seated and attended immediately. Diners who arrived later were served first. Not sure why this was, but I felt that we were being ignored. Not sure if I will return.

    Server was very enthusiastic and made the evening enjoyable. Food was good, but my steak was overcooked. I don't know if the server misunderstood my request for "medium rare" or the cook wasn't paying attention. Dining outside was great and overall the look was very nice. However, today many restaraunts are much more elegant. We sat near a very silly looking, noisy fountain. It was just water shooting up through mesh.

    Although the ad for the Jersey Shore dinner depicted some items that were not offered, we did find the overall meal to be very good. We were able to eat outside due to fantastic weather and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Our server, Jack, was very personable and kept our meal moving at a comfortable pace for us. We were with friends and were able to enjoy a very leisurely dinner. Would definitely return.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/20/2014
    Very much enjoyed Hamilton Grill. It was our first experience there and remarkably enough, one of the few nights out of the entire year where they have a limited fixed menu. This one was Jersey shore driven and so was centered around steamed oysters as an appetizer, a light salad of Jersey tomatoes and greens and small lobster sampling, boiled potato and chicken combination. The food was fresh and pretty well prepared although I would have preferred some other options. The outdoor seating was charming, but the plastic tableware (I assumed it was strictly that night although I didn't check) was a bit tacky. I would absolutely return and try them on a full menu nite. Also loved the fact that it was a BYOB.

    Hamilton's is a favorite of ours, outdoors or in the Garden room. This was the first time we experienced the "Jersey Shore" dinner. The food was served "no frills barbecue style" (a departure from the usual at this restaurant) and was a wonderful sampler of fresh shellfish, lobster, veggies, and barbecued chicken and sausage. The peach pie was incredible. We'll have it again next year but will be back before then. The seafood, in particular, is always great.

    Very disappointed is all I can say.it had a whole lobster on website, we got only a half. Cole slaw on website, there was no coleslaw served. Six people at our table, there was 13 clams or mussels that we could not open. Three of us got ONE bliss potato. My piece of corn was TWO inches long, I measured it. Website had a full piece of corn. Waiters never asked us if we wanted coffee or tea. They were very inexperienced and had difficulty taking plates from table. It was NOT a good experience. I expected much, much, more from a Jim Hamilton restaurant This menu what I am talking about is from the "Jersey Feast".

    I've been there many times, but they were off this game this week. Not sure why. Salmon was WAY overcooked. The "chopped salad" was sliced cucumbers had ice cubes on it (was it not in the fridge?) so whatever dressing was there was really watery. Service was slow. Oysters were very good but no cocktail sauce in the house. I'll go back one more time but hope they get back on track.

    I leave a review when an establishment is either very bad or very good. Hamilton's Grill falls into the latter category. I hesitated from making a reservation based on some of the reviews. However, my experience was positively positive. The food was delicious but the stellar service and candlelit garden setting were what truly elevated the experience from other restaurants in the area. Worth a try!

    We have been here many times and usually very good. This night on a Tuesday they were not very busy. Our waitress seemed to have an attitude that night. My wife ordered a chopped salad and the waitress said it will be a little different no explanation. The chopped salad came out in a soup bowl and it was 80% tomatoes not like any chopped salad we ever had. The service was slow and it took sometime for the meals to come out. We had both ordered fish and both of the dinners came out warm not hot. It was just off that night and nothing seemed in sync it will be sometime before we go back. There are many other good restaurants in Lambertville.

    My wife and I spent a long weekend on a culinary odyssey in this region, which is teeming with good restaurants. We went to Anton's at The Swan, Brian's, Lambertville Station, and The Inn at Phillips Mill. Our evening at Hamilton's Grill Room was a highlight (as was Brian's) and it was made even better by the facts that (i) it is a BYOW, (ii) the courtyard is divine for al fresco dining, and (iii) we received attentive service from Kelly and Michael. We'll return for another meal or two in short order.

    The excellent service that we have come to expect was delivered in the beginning of the dining experience. Once the food was served service collapsed. We went early to avoid the crowds that can cause service to slow and food to be less well prepared. I guess 530 pm wasn't early enough. The highly touted NY Strip was very average, like what you would expect from a highway steakhouse chain. The Bronzino was over cooked and had to be sent back. But on the bright side the starters were excellent as usual. Oysters, crab cake, and zucchini flowers all were prepared and served well. The rest of the meal and dining experience went downhill and never recovered. We will try Hamilton again since they usually deliver a much better experience overall.

    I love Hamilton Grill and have been going there for years. The food is very good but more than anything I love the setting the décor and the ambiance. The problem is the service. Waiters seem harried and overworked although never at my table. After being seated we waited over 15 minutes for somebody to open our wine and pour us some water despite asking the backs of three servers as they rushed by us without even acknowledging us. People seated after us were taken care of/served first and that drives me nuts. This hasn't changed in all the years I have been going there so I don't see it changing anytime soon which is a shame. Great place but not if you like attentive, courteous service.
