Neighborhood gem. Good place to have your bbq fix. Brisket was good, pork rib do-so but lamb belly excellent. Sides of pickles, corn and slaw were good. Overall good experience. Oh, back yard is great too if mot too hot

Really, really tasty! We went for the first time yesterday, but it won't be our last. The meat sampler was excellent (between two of our party 6 different options were tried and all were loved), the tacos were delicious (I tried 3). Service was fast and friendly.

This is the second time I’ve been to Hamilton Pork for lunch and both times we waited and extended period for our food. Unfortunately today several of the dishes came out cold after waiting 40 minutes after ordering.

It unfortunate because working in Newport it takes us a little while to walk there and with long waits for lunch it’s not practical if you have a time constant.

It was the 4th of July. We came in with a reservation at 5pm, and after we sat down were told that they were out of "some" items on the menu. "Some" ended up being all we wanted --- beef brisket, lamb belly, baby back ribs. So we had a disappointing start. Then, we waited about 40 minutes to get our orders. When we asked our waiter at the 30 min mark what was taking so long, he gave a lame excuse about how they got a big catering order that was delaying our food. Really? The food we got was okay, but not sure it's worth the trouble.

This is my first time at this restaurant. I was looking forward to liking it because it's the closes bbq restaurant to our house. I am not sure anymore if I will go again.

Hamilton Pork is a neighborhood gem as well as a worthy destination in Hudson County. The food is top notch on a menu that hits all the high notes of barbecue/Southern/summertime cuisine. The staff is super-nice and are attentive without being intrusive. It is a terrific complement to its sister restaurant, The Hamilton Inn, but at either place, you cannot go wrong.

A Little loud and with a family crowd at the time we went but I’m sure later in the night the crowd becomes more young people and less family. Food was incredible and the service was great, drinks were also top notch

Think reclaimed wood. Bare light bulbs strung along the ceiling. TOO LOUD 90's music (were they trying to make up for the fact that few people were there?). Good space between the tables. Sides are meant for sharing (about 2/3 people). Meat sampler was uniformly delicious (except the ribs were a little too black). You choose the meats. Decent BBQ- as in- the real deal. I particularly liked the pulled pork (great flavor!) and tender brisket. But the portions on the platter were VERY small. Brussel sprouts with bacon and apple were absolutely delcious I could have made that side my whole dinner. OK mac & cheese. Same with cole slaw. Slim beer list. But a decent draft pilsner. Price wise it adds up quickly. Server was eager to please and happy to serve- nice not obnoxious. Great server. Glad we went. I'm coming back.

Their BBQ is excellent! Tonight we had the pulled chicken, pulled pork, and pork ribs. All were excellent. The ribs fell off the bone. They ran out of the lamb belly but that’s usually quite the delicacy. The wait was a bit long even with the reservation, but the host gave us our first drinks on the house, which is a sign of good service. Side were excellent too... the Mexican corn, jalapeño cornbread, and smashed sweet potatoes. Lively one a Friday night.

Always the best bbq in the tri-state area. Love this place and now even better with the patio and outdoor opening. Great place to drink but don’t forget to eat. The sausages are amazing, ribs and pulled pork. The tacos are great and all the sides - particularly the Brussels sprouts, mac and cheese and corn. The wings rock.

I was meeting up with a buddy of mine whom I haven’t seen in awhile. We picked this place and we weren’t disappointed. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The drinks weren’t too bad but the food was phenomenal. We ordered the Eggs Benedict with brisket. OMG😍. I’m definitely coming back to try out the rest of the menu. Just a heads up this place gets really busy so you might want to do a reservation before hand. I used this app to do it.

Excellent food and drinks as usual. I recommend the lamb belly in particular. The service here is usually very good. On this occasion, though, we made a reservation but were not seated for over 30 minutes. I think they might need to work on the reservation system so they don't accept more than they can handle.
