Great service, cocktails, and food!!
Josh, our server, was great. He was very attentive, knew the menu well, and could make recommendations. I had fish and chips, they were good, but I wish I had ordered something else. There are so many really delicious things on the menu.
Hamilton Walkers and their team NEVER disappoint. My filet was cooked perfectly! Service was superb. We are so lucky to have this fine dining option available to us!
Great service great food. Nathan found us a great table
Would have given more 5s except for fact menu is limited, which we completely understand. Same great quality food, excellent drinks and service. Will continue to keep coming back as long as we can!
A delicious meal as always. Great service. Love this place.
Both our entrees were delicious. We ordered the salmon and beef pasta. The bread and flavored butters were tasty. Our waiter,Nick, was helpful but not overbearing. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and they gave us a slice of flourless chocolate cake on the house! We definitely enjoyed eating here.
The larger room could use some more color/pictures added to the walls. Maybe some tall plants artificial or real? Thank you for having us.
Food was delicious. Server was very attentive but not intrusive. Manager kindly provided a water bowl for our dog. Lovely evening for outdoor seating. Definitely going back.
I went there for Father’s Day with my husband and my children sat on the patio. We had great service great food pricey but worth it
We were delighted finally to be able to return to HW's. We felt safe and secure, the patio on back was comfortable and cheery; the service was splendid and the food, as usual, excellent--a truly delightful evening.
The best restaurant in Champaign-Urbana. From the ambiance of restaurant, to the great attentive wait staff all the way down to their amazing and delicious menu choices. It really doesn’t get any better around the C-U area. Nate and the rest of the staff are the best!
We enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Hamilton Walkers. The food, service and atmosphere was wonderful!
This was my first time dining at Hamilton Walkers. Our server was great and the food was very tasty.
our server was great! very attentive! Food was excellent!
of course the traffic noise was noisy but we had a good time anyway
Delicious as always
We had a lovely evening. The wait staff did a great job. We were provided food by people who didn't take our order, yet everything was placed in front of the proper person. we weren't rushed, yet they were very attentive.
Had to be outside because of covid but it was a perfect evening. With little exception, the traffic by wasn't even noticeable.
A delightful evening for a birthday celebration. Gracious welcome and service throughout the dinner.
Great service! Very friendly and attentive staff! Fabulous food! Would definitely recommend Hamilton Walkers
We had a wonderful evening! Food and service exceeded out expectations...everything was amazing. Will definitely be back:)
Lovely evening on the back patio. Great service, wonderful food!!
Missed the Prime Rib, and wish I would have ordered Mac and Cheese! Otherwise a lovely evening.
Great place in CU. Good outdoor dining, reservations received and we got on on time. Go there.
A gift from our daughter. She attended the soft opening and loved it from the start. She had raved about it and wanted to share the experience. It was perfect. We were on the shady side of the building with a beautiful breeze. Our server was very attentive and we had at least 2 management folks check on us. The food was excellent and it was obvious we were enjoying quality food and expert culinary skills. I would encourage all to try it out.
The evening was a great experience! New items on the menu, were delicious. All of the staff was attentive and friendly. We are definetly going back!
We had a fabulous time! Delicious food! Attentive service. Outside fun ambience.
The rib-eye/lentil soup was to die for! Ordered the Surf and Turf with 3 large shrimp and 4 oz. of steak on skewers. Both were cooked to perfection and also delicious. This was a bit pricey at $33 but was well worth it. Also ordered the Seafood Pasta which was also delicious and a very large portion. There was enough for at least 2 more meals!
Also, Hamilton Walkers has the absolute best Cosmos in town!
Loved the outdoor seating, however since they are on Neil St. the traffic can be a bit loud. Highly recommend and is a bit pricey. Our meal with 2 Cosmos and an ice tea came to $92 without tip. Just prepare for the cost.
Amazing atmosphere, food is amazing, impeccable service!
What a joy to be back and have a meal at Hamilton Walkers. Just as wonderful as always.
The porterhouse with the crusted Parmesan was outstanding. My husband and I went for his birthday and received an amazing complimentary baked Alaskan dessert. We highly recommend HW to celebrate a special occasion.
Great dining experience from start to finish! Excellent food and service. Went as a family for my husband’s birthday.
Excellent food & nice ambiance
Although I made the reservation several days in advance, we were seated in the bar area which was noisier and less comfortable.
My colleagues and I have been frequent HW goers for the past year or so due to their UofI BOGO brunch deal. It has always been a draw despite disappointing service as 90% of the time someone’s order is mixed up or put in wrong. The past 2 brunches, my order was put in wrong and I had to wait for my food. Although the manager did bring out my correct order eventually, it was only handed to me with a half-hearted apology and never any sort of compensation. Without the BOGO, it hardly seems worth the price and we will likely be taking out weekly brunches somewhere else.
I was in Urbana Champaign visiting my sister and decided to take her out for her birthday. I'd seen really good things about Hamilton Walker and it sounded like a good place for a special occasion. The restaurant has a nice décor and the noise level was reasonable and the upfront staff were very nice when we arrived. We ordered steaks (mine rare, and hers medium). My steak was probably closer to Medium Rare, but not a big deal. My sister's steak was not done properly and appeared close to what I had received. The waitress took it back to the kitchen and it came back and was still was too rare. After a third time, it arrived, but was probably closer to well done than medium. She decided to just eat the steak. I've been to a ton of nice steak places over the years and felt like they should have a better handle on how to properly prepare a steak and also the same steak was returned, whereas Morton's and other high end steak places typically bring a new steak. When you're spending a lot of money, they should take care of you right. Our server Denise seemed nice, but as the evening went on, it felt like we were getting rushed to leave. For example, picking up our bread before we were done with it. Note the restaurant was supposed to be open until 10 pm and it was about 9:15 pm when this was happening. The restaurant did provide my sister with a free baked Alaska for her birthday, which was a nice touch however. What really irked me was that Denise brought the small electronic payment device over for us to check out and took a moment and set it up to default to a 33% tip. I've gone to lots of nice restaurants and the typical way these devices are used is to let the patron pick what tip level to give. I've used enough of these devices to be able switch them to the 20% setting (which I felt was generous given the mis-cooked steak and the "rush treatment" we were getting to leave. I think the restaurant is good overall, but Denise needs better training.
Excellent food! Excellent service! Love this place!
Got my order wrong, which seems like a far-to-common occurrence for their brunch hours. Thank goodness for the BOGO UofI deal or else we might need to find somewhere else to frequent.
Food was excellent! We always enjoy eating here every time we come to Champaign.
