    We were seated outside, but after 10 minutes without anyone coming to serve us we asked to be reseated. Our server, Peter, in the new location was excellent. He didn’t rush us and was helpful in our choosing entrees to share. As usual the food at Hamilton’s was excellent.

    Great food, drinks, ambiance and service! On the drink menu there is an option of buying a round for the kitchen staff for $10 - that is a brilliant idea for people who work hard to bring excellence!

    We had an outstanding dinner at Hamilton's (again!). This was UVA Graduation weekend and Hamilton's had a Graduation Dinner Experience which was a 5 course meal, each dish exquisite. the beet carpacio and leek soup stood out as first courses. As far as the entrees. the crabcakes where the best I've ever had, and the tenderloin and seared duck breast were raved about by our group. We liked the privacy of our booth and our waitress was lovely, efficient and friendly. Thank you Hamilton's for making our evening a special graduation celebration!

    The amplified music overpowered the room. When asked it was lowered but not enough for conversation. We were moved away, but it was still loud. I regret not measuring the Db level.

    Ordered crab cakes. Not disappointed at all. Plenty up blue crab and just enough filler to hold it together. The sauce on top of my crab cake went well with seafood . Added a glass of wine and a side salad to it. Crab cake came with a veggies and rice. Went at 2pm on a Saturday. Total 66$ excluding tip.

    We have loved Hamilton’s before, but we’d forgotten just how good the food is. And the beer selections were great even if not very extensive. We loved our orders of shrimp and grits and those who had the crab cake sandwich were also very happy.
