Located directly on Beacon Street, Hamilton is right in the heart of Coolidge Corner. With 250 person capacity, our restaurant offers a comfortable atmosphere matched with an elevated dining experience. Incorporating elements such as a vintage table designed from wood used on the USS Constitution, and a stained glass window flown over from Ireland – the space is designed intentionally to foster warmth, friendship, and relatability. Established from multi-cultural ownership in both America and Ireland, we’ve incorporated historical elements of each culture in a very modern way.

    Multiple dates available
    Mon - 6:30 PM - 12:00 AM
    Every Monday at 7:30 PM at Hamilton Restaurant! Modeled after pub quizzes in Ireland and the U.K., Geeks Who Drink is an authentic homegrown trivia quiz. It’s a great way to drink with friends, without burning brain cells. And it’s where useless knowledge means everything. Our quizzes cover everything from Hungary to The Hunger Games, from science to sports, from the Billboard Hot 100 to Better Call Saul. Each quiz consists of seven rounds of eight questions each, in a variety of formats, including audio and visual rounds. Teams can be up to six players, so bring your smartest friends (or some likable dummies)—or come solo. We can always help you join a team! Winning teams get bar cash and other prizes, depending on the venue.

    We ate on the back patio on a recent warm Saturday night. The service was friendly, the food was delicious, and the setting was great. Keep that patio open as long as you can!

    Our server did a great job considering he didn’t have much help as he was the only one. Short staffed and many items on menu not available. Hostess should have alerted us when she seated us. Flatbread is not a flatbread. It is more like a naan pizza.

    A few of their brunch staples were out of stock (even jam) and what came (drinks and food) didn’t seem very fresh or high quality, like bland cocktail mix and overcooked eggs. Forgivable at a cheap diner but I expected more in Coolidge Corner and at Brookline prices. The server was kind and apologetic, but their kitchen could step it up with very little additional effort or cost.

    We went to Hamilton for Saturday night dinner with our son while we were in town for BC family weekend. Initially, we were seated close to the bar, which was a bit loud for my hearing impaired husband, but when we asked about moving the staff was very accommodating. They couldn’t have been nicer. Our waiter was great and the food was delicious-just what we wanted after a chilly football game. Definitely worth a visit!

    Nothing special. The food was alright but not great. I had the mac n cheese which I thought had a weird flavor to it. We ate outside which was nice. The drinks were fine. The service was good. There’s better places to eat in the area.

    Came into town for the weekend and stayed at the Marriott. Asked for recommendations and was directed to Hamilton, walking distance. We sat at the bar and got to know Shanna the bartender LOVED her and her recommendations for food. Ended up back 3 times in 1 weekend!!!

    It was date night for my husband and I. We had a concert over at the Fenway. Carlie was our server and she was absolutely fabulous! she said she was fairly new but had such extensive knowledge about the menu that I feel the establishment has trained their employees well. I am sure that this place is a lot busier when the college crowd comes back but the evening that we went was perfectly quiet and the food was amazing. My husband absolutely loved the hand mashed potatoes, and my brussels sprouts were out of this world delicious with the bacon. We will definitely be back!

    Rats on the patio! At least six of them! And the staff kept seating new tables on the patio even after the rats appeared!!! And the waitress came to greet us with a plate of half eaten food in her hand! AND THEN SET IT DOWN ON OUT TABLE TO TAKE OUR ORDER! Just no. Never again. (Staff we’re all very nice though.)

    This is a regular dining spot for me and many of my friends. The back patio is perfect for enjoying an afternoon in good company with good, reasonably priced food. I recommend the clam chowder; a bowl makes for a full meal. The service is excellent from a friendly, attentive wait staff, definitely part of the reason to return.

    Victoria our server was amazing! The wine was delicious. However the food tasted like cheap take out that had been warmed up in a microwave. There was no flavor to the food either. The dessert options were also very limited… As much as I love Boston/Brookline I won’t be returning.

    This use to be my favorite bar. They use to have a drink menu with unique cocktails named after historical figures, light music and had a really neighborhood bar type feel. This has gone out the window. They had literal children running the front who didn't seem to know what was going on. My boyfriend and I ended up just sitting at the bar. Loud music was blaring, place was super crowded with college kids, one girl was so drunk she was half slumping in her seat and the bar tender continued to serve her! The unique drink menu has been replaced with basic everyday drinks very sad to see. Lastly we ended up having to eat at home because after ordering food and not receiving anything for 30min we asked about our food waited another 30min then were told they did have what we ordered. Place is now trash and definitely won't be back.

    Believe the poor reviews (besides the boneless wings). I needed to get a last minute reservation for a Friday night. I thought it was weird they had so many open times, but yet we decided to come. We probably would have been better off waiting at another restaurant. One of the 3 hostesses sat us in the back of the restaurant and we stayed sitting for about 10 minutes until someone came over telling us we had to move since a large party was going to be sat soon. We didn't want to sit at the bar or outside so we had to wait until a table cleared. During this time, 3 more workers came over to let us know we needed to leave the table we were sat at. WE KNOW, but maybe it would have been nice to at least take our drink order. When we finally sat at the correct table, it was another 10 minutes before a drink order was placed. We split the bottle of prosecco (which is labeled Ruffino on the menu, but we received La Marca) and the server did not open it for us. It was also priced $12 more on the QR menu than the printed one. We all split a bunch of appetizers. The food was dropped by a runner and no one ever asked us how things were until we were done eating so we were left without a few things we wanted. We never received our flatbread pizza, the quesadilla was not good, and the side of mac n cheese we ordered was rang in as a full order. When we pointed the flatbread and mac issue out to the server she gave us attitude (we would have asked about it right away had someone come over soon after dropping the food). The server had way too many tables and there were way too many "hosts" standing around doing nothing. The food was ok. The only way I would recommend coming here is to get TAKE OUT and order the BONELESS WINGS. They were absolutely delicious, but not enough to ever dine here again. This restaurant has so much wasted potential. Maybe Bar Rescue will pay them a visit because the location can't be beat.

    This was quite disappointing. There were very few people in the restaurant when we arrived, yet service was quite slow. Drinks were good, but we were charges $2 per drink for ice???? Really?? I would have done straight up if I knew that. Food tasted OK, but took over 30 minutes. And the $25 steak tips meal included only 4 steak tips!! I think maybe they served the kids meal??? When the bill came we were shocked at the cost. We will not go back.
