One of mine and my girlfriend’s favourite restaurants in Hamilton. Whether you come for drinks & apps or a full meal, you’ll be satisfied every time. We have never left dissatisfied. I highly recommend trying the weekly chef smash as its always been delicious!

They need to have coffee or tea for after dinner!! This is the only restaurant I’ve ever been to that didn’t have coffee or tea!!!

Besides providing one of the best lettuce "buns" around, they now carry keto buns. It's more than 3 bucks extra, but if you eat keto, it makes for an excellent option.

Too cold sitting by the door... Uncomfortable at times. People wait for a table in the doorway and keep the door open... Not acceptable.

Delicious burgers and amazing service. The renos look awesome, and it's nice to sit on a chair rather than a stool. Definitely coming back again!

It wasn’t our best experience - the recipe for the Dirty Bird has changed and wasn’t impressed. My partner ordered the Honey Crunch chicken sandwich - the bun was very soggy as the burger was excessively dressed with sauce.

The appetizer - cauliflower wings were good.

We were seated at a table where the floors were dirty and in front of a window - where the sun was blazing inside. When we arrived the restaurant was full - but within 30 minutes there were numerous tables that we could have been relocated too.

It was not the most comfortable experience - the food was ok.

We will give the restaurant another chance.

Unfortunately our waiter was maybe having a bad day as he was kinda rude and it was strange as it wasn’t busy. At the end he was ok but not too happy about his attitude. Great food and restaurant was nice and clean.

There is not a bad thing on the menu- everything is delicious! The only thing I'm not happy with is that they keep getting rid of my favourite dishes. Hambrgr please bring back the chips and dip and the Iceberg Wedge Salad- PLEASE!!! Get the tater tots- you won't be disappointed!

Food was great, the garlic parmesan fries we got to share were a little lacking in the toppings part but overall a good experience. The music was a little loud for us to talk and we asked if it could be turned down and they were happy to do it for us and checked if it was at a good level.

The dinner was great, server was very warm, polite, and attentive. The only two complaints we had is that We thought it was a little weird that there was not cutlery on the table (however that didn’t actually effect our experience) and the music was very loud.

Love the menu, location, new size for seating, service, and its unique style (including excellent milk shakes). Noise levels are higher than comfortable; a seemingly inevitable circumstance in the newer decor and restaurant styles. However, if it could allow for more conversation that would be a desired improvement.

Was in Hamilton for work overnight and heard about Hambrgr from the You Gotta Eat Here show. The server we had was good but forgot to bring us our appetizer order. Not a big deal. We didn't get the high table we reserved and we were stuck in a tiny corner table next loud people glued to us...

The food we did order and get was great though.

Friendly staff, tasty burgers and fries. Jalapeno cheesy poofs were a tasty appetizer, however, were luke warm when served. We would eat there again.

awesome restaurant if you want a gourmet hamburger. I enjoyed the variety of beers on tap and for $9.50 you can order a flight of 4 six ounce samplers. Will become a frequent place for me to dine.

Dined here before a show at Theatre Aquarius. Despite having reservations for two we were sat at a six top shared table which was fine. The food was indulgent and absolutely delicious! Our server could have been friendlier though. We will definitely return.

Took my son for his first visit on Saturday. Food and service were amazing. He had the BYOB was great. I had the Novemburger creation was absolutely fantastic might even get my vote for best burger this year. We both love this place and will be back very soon. The Fryfecta is a must try and you can't go wrong with the onion rings.

Food was good. Was disappointed they ran out of onion rings around 5:45. Not sure how this could happen. Server was ver apologetic and offered some other appetizer for free. Was a nice gesture

They put us at a table 3 in a row facing out of restaurant. Pretty poor as we had booked ahead. A staff member helped us move it so we could have one person opposite. It was a tight squeeze but much better. Food was excellent and great value

The restaurant has expanded which is great so now there is a chance of getting in without a reservation. The food we have had there has been very good every time. It is consistent. The cauliflower appetizer is very good and the blue cheese burger is great. If you are into rich and large desserts, the desserts look great. Donuts and brownies and marshmallows on top of milkshakes. Service was casual and friendly. They have an average beer list but if looking for wine, not the spot for that. But it is a burger and beer and cocktail kind of place. Overall a great experience.

We’ve come to HAMBRGR a couple times. My husband and I went for dinner before a show downtown. We both had the new Chef Smash, the Jeffrey, it was amazing and we both loved it. Also tried their banana milkshake and 8th Deadly Sin Milkshake, both were delicious! Can’t wait to go back again.

My wife and I visited on Halloween to celebrate her birthday. We were greated pleasantly upon entering. Even though we were 15 minutes early for our reservation we were seated right away. Our server Meghan was amazing, very friendly and attentive without intruding. We tried a little of everything, it was all very good. My wife especially liked the deep fried pickle spears. Our burgers were very good, with a lot of attention to ingredient quality and preparation. Was not disappointed. Extra stars for the ceaser collection, my wife tries a ceaser everywhere we go and this one earned top marks. Overall a very good "high end" burger, fun menu, and I can not emphasize this enough; amazing service. Would reccomend to anyone.
