We'll go back!
Great little place,cozy,intimate.Nice vibe for sure. No "airs" about it, down to earth and friendly. Very good for a date. The food was delicious, but the portions were tiny and left us hungry! We paid $35 for a fixed menu meal; we both had the hangar steak and fries, salad appetizer(for me),crab cake appetizer(for husband),and both chose the flourless cake for dessert. Hangar steak was great. Cooked just how we wanted. Fries were average and very small amount. Crab cake appetizer was the size of a half-dollar and was basically one bite.Appetizer salad was quite small but really good.I love flourless chocolate cake. Unfortunately for me, this cake came out HOT!I like my flourless cake cold and dense.I took it home and put it in fridge.YUM!

If you're in the area, a great find
Just worked for me on several different levels. Large staff for size which ensured great service... staff knowledgeable, well trained and NICE!
Nice selection for a pub menu and well executed. Great neighborhood place with eclectic group of patrons... though I'm not from the neighborhood and am coming back!

Living on the park...
Living in the Hamilton Park area of Jersey City for 6 months, we've greatly enjoyed all of our meals at Hamilton Inn.
Especially recommend the ahi tuna and hanger steak with those fabulous fries. Drinks are wonderful as well.

Good Food, Funky Venue
Cool little corner restaurant. The reclaimed and repurposed distressed materials made for a comfortable dining experience. Took the family to brunch/breakfast on a Saturday and the menu had a good choice of standard and funky fare. We had the French toast, Heuvos Rancheros and Huevos Divorciados which were all tasty and well prepared. The oyster appetizer, though fresh, was expensive at $2.75 per oyster. My only complaint was with the service. Our waiter was polite and mostly attentive but he was not familiar with the food or wine menu which required him to go back-and-forth to the back to check with others on details and at one time indicated that an appetizer was not available when it was.

This was a great place to celebrate my friend's birthday - we both had steak dishes and they were both great. The staff was friendly and accommodating as well.

oh those pierogies...
There are some simply outstanding dishes at HI. The goat cheese pierogies with caramelized onions and truffled sour cream are at the top of the list along with the French onion soup dumplings (although the dumplings are better at Stanton Social in NYC, from whence they originated, I believe). The ribs are fantastic, truffle fries are delicious, burgers are cooked perfectly, fish tacos are tasty...haven't had something there I didn't like. Great cocktails as well. I happened to go on a Wednesday which is 1/2 price cocktail night. A large sidewalk seating area for those who are excited to dine al fresco in the nicer weather. This is a favorite and I live 1/2 hour away.

A wonderful, tucked away neighborhood gem, the Hamilton Inn is a sophisticated spot with a vibrant bar scene, pleasant sidewalk cafe and cozy interior dining area. Menu selections should please just about anyone and the service is friendly and personable. Hamilton Inn is a place you will find yourself going back to many times.

Wonderful Hamilton Park spot
My husband and I just moved with our toddler to Jersey City and we like to go to an early dinner together on the weekends as a family. We were looking for a new spot and saw that the Hamilton Inn had great reviews. We tried it out and weren't disappointed. The service was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, I enjoyed the tuna. I certainly recommend it.

Father's day brunch
I love the Hamilton Inn for brunch. Good food, $4 brunch beverages, nice ambiance. On Father's day it was definitely busy, so service was slower than usual but that's to be expected during a holiday.

Wish we would have gone here sooner
My 2 little girls aged 4 and 18 months took myth wit daddy here for Father's Day brunch. The food was excellent as was the service! It came quickly which when dining with small children is key! They set up a really nice spot for us by the a big open door so we got a nice breeze and view! The mimosas were fabulous just what I needed on a Sunday morning and I will no longer be able to enjoy plain old fries after having tried the truffle fries; So good!! We'll be coming back for sure really soon, before we move out of the area!

I've been going to Hamilton Inn for a few years and they never let me down. Always great food, great atmosphere, and great service.

Great find in Jersey City
Nice restaurant and easy to get to in Jersey City. Showed up late on Sunday evening just before kitchen closed. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. The food was very good. My wife and daughter raved about the candied pecan and goat cheese salad. Half-price bottles of wine were a pleasant suprise. Nice way to end the weekend.

Excellent food and service! Great pre-fix menu. I can still taste the goat cheese, walnut ravioli with fig sauce! Excellent food!

Awesome restaurant week pick
After researching the spots for Hudson Resturant Week, reading reviews and checking menus, the Hamilton Inn seemed to be one of the best offerings. The lunch menu was diverse and creative, and the pirogues were amazing. Drink menu is also another great reason to go.

This is a huge favorite of ours!! My husband and I enjoy this little neighborhood gem so much and it never lets us down. Always great food, great service and great atmosphere!

Great place overall but service
Great place overall but service could use improvement. The wait staff seems to be all over the place but never at your table when you need them they are friendly but slow! Food is awesome :)

Had brunch here for the first time. I had the BBQ'd Eggs and my friend had the Huevos Rancheros...both were delicious! She had a bloody mary and I had the World's Best Brunch Cocktail (YUM!!). Service was good - had to waive down our waiter a couple times as he was more engaged in watching the soccer on the TV above the bar...but otherwise good experience. Recommend for brunch...coming back to try dinner!

Wednesday $1 Oysters
Food was excellent! Goat cheese pierogies and fish tacos. But we had ordered for 2 dozen raw oysters but first got 8... weird. When we brought it up to our waiter, it was corrected immediately! Thank goodness for that!
Another plus was half off on their drink specials! Very delicious and refreshing!
Waiter was very friendly and attentive but there was always a different person bringing out our food. Which made service quick but confusing for us.
Will definitely go again to try all of their other menu items.

Great local gem!
1st time visit - had a great time. Food was good, reasonably priced. Nice variety and place had a fun vibe. Will be returning again.

I went there for brunch. The food was decent and the area was nice. We sat outside. Our only issue at all was that after the food came, the server never came back to check if anything else was needed. Otherwise we probably would have ordered more drinks. The free parking is a plus too!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best brunch I've ever had. I wanted to yell at everyone for not ordering the same thing as me. I had been here once before and it was equally amazing. This is my new favorite spot.

Cozy Neighborhood Brunch Spot
Hamilton Inn indeed has that country B&B feel tucked in a corner of Jersey City... yet the food is first rate quality and creativity!

Great brunch..the flat bread
Great brunch..the flat bread truffle pizza I had I would recommend. The table next to us had side of brussel sprouts which I don't like but the looked so good I had to give them a try. They were good...even for a person who doesn't like brussel sprouts. Bloody Mary was good. Greyhounds were weak! It is a keeper we will go back when we can sit outside. Parked on the street as we didn't know how to get to the garage at 12th and Jersey. We found a spot with no problem.
