I've been there once before but
recently took my husband there for Sunday brunch. We sat at the bar and really enjoyed the food and service. We will definitely be back!"

Four of us walked from Hoboken on
a beautiful summer evening. We enjoyed the atmosphere. It wasn't too loud or crowded even on a Friday. We really enjoyed the soup dumplings! The burgers were all good, but nothing special. The truffle fries were a nice touch."

Great spot for lunch. The egg
pizza was devoured in minutes as soon as the server put it on the table. Good food and nice staff."

Good Brunch menu, food is always
good. Some drinks on the menu changed, my wife was not too happy with that. Sat at the bar, gal behind the bar was not too friendly...very businesslike but overall a good experience and I definitely will go back."

Overall the service and food was
very good: especially the Spicy Tuna Tartare and the Sweet Potato Salad."

The food was great. The drinks
were over priced to say the least. $12.00 martini served in small champagne saucer that was 1/2 full. "

Hamilton Inn is a popular
neighborhood spot, especially on weekends. Food is consistently good; service friendly and polite. Accepts walk-ins and reservations. During busy brunch times, though, be prepared to wait for a table even if you have a reservation."

We just moved to Jersey City from
NY and we stumbled upon this neighborhood gem. We are used to the convenience of NYC and was pleasantly surprised by how late the Hamilton Inn was open. The food was great and we didn't have to cheat on our organic diet. This spot will definitely be one that I frequent often."

I just love his place. The food
and service are top notch. The quality is exceptional with organic beef and local sourcing. Good drinks and not overpriced. Emphatically recommended by me!"

The Hamilton Inn consistently
delivers good food and congenial atmosphere. Great choices for brunch and lunch. Very popular as a late night spot on weekends. The restaurant reflects the friendliness of the neighborhood. As weather warms, reservations (and a little patience) is recommended."

Was very busy, our table was not
readily available and not sure the reservation made a difference but we were seated fairly soon. Food was good, would return."

we had a 3pm reservation / there
was only the brunch menu- which didn't offer much for options other then eggs for vegitarian (my party had someone who was vegitarian) so at 3-3:30 he only had eggs as an option - and his meal was over-cooked - 3 ppl ordered soup dumplings the dough was raw - also had the French dip/ which u would expect sliced thin meat- it was a small steak cut - to slices - but def not what u want in a French dip- the service was fine nothing over the top- "

We had a wonderful birthday dinner
for five at Hamilton Inn. Great varied and delicious menu."

We stopped by for $1 oysters .
Good $1 oysters are hard to come by outside of NYC. We ordered 20 east coasts which were some of the thickest, succulent oysters I've had. The horseradish was good too - it had a mild spiciness with hints of vinegar. They have 1/2 priced beer, wine, well, and cocktails from 12-4 & 4-7 which nets out to $4-6 drinks. I got a tequila negroni (tegroni) for $6 and was thrilled with the quality. I tried the pulled pork sandwich. It was loaded with meat and a sweet BBQ sauce, though the bread was soft and it was hard to keep the sandwich together. I didn't mind. Overall, the service was speedy and frequent and the ambiance had a rustic hipster vibe (think 19th century saloon). I highly recommend The Hamilton Inn."

This was my third time here. I
love the truffle flat bread pizza so much I haven't tried anything else on the menu. It can get crowded but the staff and customers are all friendly. It is a nice place to hang out. Daily specials are offered. After this terrible winter can't wait to go on a nice day and sit outside.Ask for a drink menu there are some interesting choices."

I was on a quest to find another
restaurant in Jersey City which I've never been to that turns out to be a gem and I think I found one. Really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant. I think the whole ambience in there was great, and everything I had for dinner was out of this world. I would definitely recommend to all and I will be back there as well."

Great Service. Very cute
atmosphere. Recommend IPA beer and cucumber and berry for cocktail. Ahi Tuna Burger is delicious!"
Dined on 4/4/2014
Went there for dinner. Place looks
bigger from outside, tables are placed closely to each other. Food was so-so, nothing memorable. Wine (malbec) that I had was good though."

Decided to try this place on
Saturday night with boyfriend. Love the location and really enjoyed the food. We had the french onion soup dumplings & goat cheese pierogies to start, and then split the pappardelle pasta and steak frites for entrees. Everything was very good. The only downside was that my bf had 2 pretty bad Manhattans and for $14 a drink, that's not a good thing. They both had way too much Vermouth, which is pretty awful. However, after commenting halfway through the second one that it was terrible, the server graciously had it remade and it was a significant improvement. Definitely planning to come back & looking forward to trying some of the other items on the menu! Boyfriend loved it too. He just might order scotch instead!"

My girlfriend and I discovered
this place a few months ago and really like it a lot. Putting it on our list of go-to spots. We both agreed that the apps are much more exciting than most of their main dishes - but don't take that as a negative! They are great at what they make and its all be stellar, but you will read the menu of apps and say "I HAVE to try that!". Brunch is great too, busy but not completely crowded."

Having been dining at Hamilton Inn
a few years now, the food is always consistent with a great variety of options even if you walk in there with absolutely no idea what you're in the mood for. This last time, I took clients new to downtown JC to check out a "new" restaurant and HI absolutely nailed it. Service was great and the food impeccable. To have such a higher end neighborhood bar & restaurant nearby is such a benefit in living near Hamilton Park. Kudos to the team for always a job well done!"

Foodwise....one of the best
Brunches I've exprerienced in a long time. Service slower than it should be & noise level can be extreme."
Dined on 3/8/2014
Cute, neighborhood gem with a
great bar and ambiance. Food was good."
Dined on 2/28/2014
The service was pleasant. I loved
the ambiance. It was the food that was a disappointment. My husband, from Texas, asked if the ribs were beef ribs. Waiter said yes. Ribs came, were pork (thank God he's not kosher). Then when husband told waiter that they were pork, waiter insisted they were beef;-(. Unless they came from a calf, they were not beef. My fish special, the red snapper over risotto , may not have been snapper. It was pretty overdone and rubbery. The risotto was really greasy too. The mojito (sp) pitcher was 3/4 water. That was a buzz bummer as we all were looking forward to some minty kick from the mojo!! I really wanted this to be a hit as it's a fem of a location: right near some great friends place; but it wasn't;-("

Always enjoy the food and the view
is fun at Hamilton Inn. Be good to have some new different choices."

I've been to Hamilton Inn several
times, and it's always impossible to get a table for brunch without a reservation. I planned ahead and made a reservation, only to find they were behind that morning. However, they graciously gave us a round of drinks on the house and we were seated within 15 minutes. Food is good, service is nice. Great for brunch!"
Dined on 2/9/2014
We made a reservation about 2
hours before we showed up. When we got there it was obvious the staff was in the weeds, but everyone was keeping cool. Despite the reservation, we had to wait for our table (again, super busy), but the host bought us a round of drinks as an apology so we didn't mind one bit! We both got steak and eggs- the steak was delicious, but moms sunny side up eggs definitely trumped my scrambled. All in all we had a great time,."

Beautiful Restaurant, with old
world charm. Great wine list. I tried the Riesling, nice and dry the way I like it. We went for the Hudson restaurant week menu, the oysters were great, very fresh. I loved the Beef Duo and mashed potatoes with blue cheese! desert was a rich dark chocolate cake and ice-cream. The service was very efficient. I will definitely go again!"

A fine casual and convivial place
to grab a good meal in Jersey City. It's an interesting menu and the quality of the food is very high. One note - as the Hamilton Inn has a tile floor, they don't really need to crank the stereo system. I like a lively environment, but it's just a little too loud."

I went here with my family for
brunch on New Year's Day, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Highlights included delicious food, a varied menu, a respectable wine and cocktail list, and a friendly staff. I highly recommend the salad with sweet potato and blue cheese, the chilaquiles and chorizo, and the lamb burger--all were outstanding. The restaurant has a warm, welcoming feel, but it can get a bit tight and loud when crowded."

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."

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!"
Dined on 11/16/2013
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."
Dined on 11/3/2013
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!"

1st time visit - had a great time.
Food was good, reasonably priced. Nice variety and place had a fun vibe. Will be returning again."
Dined on 9/2/2013
I always waffle between a
good/very good rating for the Hamilton Inn. We've been there four or five times and plan to return. The outdoor seating area is great. Our biggest complaint is the value--the food is very good but a bit over-priced. You expect more for what you pay--same goes for drinks. Their risotto special is excellent and worth noting. We've had salads, sandwiches, appetizers, and meals there and liked everything. Their brunch is also very good."
Dined on 8/25/2013
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."
Dined on 8/21/2013
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!"
