A very long (over 30 minutes)wait even with a reservation, and no space to stand, but hey, you can make friends that way. After that:
Food was excellent; service was excellent.

Very disappointed with our dinner at Hamilton's Grille. The seating was extremely tight and the staff kept smashing into my chair whenever they had to serve the table next to us. A little thought to table placement could have avoided the issue. The disturbance was frequent and the young man clearing plates from the table next to us banged into me so often it was like it was my fault that I was in his way. Incidentally, I am an average sized 5'10 male.
I ordered a Delmonico steak which was filled with gristle and difficult to chew let alone swallow. I've had better steaks from Giant Supermarket. It was flavorful but so much stringy gristle you felt like you were going to choke yourself when swallowing.
My wife's meal was OK but nothing special.
Another issue that you have to deal with is if you are going to this restaurant, DO NOT drive down the alley that it is located on and think you are going to park near the restaurant. The alley that GPS tells you to turn down to get to the restaurant is a dead end with about 6 parking spots that are shared by the two restaurants and one bar located down the alley. It is impossible to back up out of the alley because other cars are following their GPS into the quagmire. Park on the street before turning into the alley and walk back the block or so to get to the restaurant.

Good food. Great service. No wait time. Wife loved the scallops. She said the bread pudding with whipped cream was the best she ever had. Talked about it for days!

Nice place tucked away off the street and along the tow path overlooking the canal. The rooms inside are very charming and cozy, either with lovely windows or with a view of the open grill. For appetizers, we had a kale salad that was delicious, if a bit strong on the citrus, and some shrimp in an anchovy butter, which was another strong flavor with garlic. Splitting the two was a good combination as the citrus mellowed out the shrimp. Then we both happened to have the scallops, which were fine. They weren't overdone or anything, but were very strong on the salt and seasoning.

In general, if you like one or two very dominant flavors in your food, I would think it's a lovely spot. Additionally, it's a BYOB, so grab a couple of bottles just a block or two away and it's a nice evening. However, if you like more nuanced flavors in your food, it's still a nice time, and service staff were very pleasant, but it wouldn't be my first choice for that palette.

Food was great. It was our first visit on Friday night. The chef was friendly and greeted us when we came in. You can tell he takes pride in his restaurant!

I wish the menu had more conventional dishes. I am not a fish eater, and I avoid red where's the chicken. There are a number of good, easy chicken dishes

Grill is amazing! We love to sit at the bar and watch our food grilled on the spot.

Very disappointed in the food. Scallops very bland. Mustard crusted lamb had no mustard crust.
