Price for portions are not that good. Everything is À la cart and very small selection. Might be limited menu because of Covid.

Excellent service and excellent food. Only complaints are need to bring the prime rib back, lower the music and prices are a bit too high.

Nice time on the sidewalk. Noisy at times because of traffic, so not restaurant’s fault. Great food, great wine and drinks. Nick is the best as either bartender or waiter. We had him for both...

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.

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.

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 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 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 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.

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.

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.
