    Great place for a low key hangout with friends. The food is pretty good for pub fare and the noise level and crowd is pretty minimal for a Friday evening. If you do go, make reservations and try to get seating by the window as the other seats are close to the busy kitchen. The staff are super friendly and very accommodating. I definitely will come back and recommend to others.

    Awesome smart/casual restaurant on always buzzing Locke Street in Hamilton. The Squire has a wonderful outdoor patio, a bar with low-lighting, and an indoor dining room plus a special 'goldfish bowl' separate dining area -- all to suit customers' various needs. The food is smart/casual and well prepared. My daughter loved her fish tacos and I gobbled down my entrée too. The staff was friendly and super efficient, every approach was well timed, just when you want your waiter to show up! Drinks seemed a tad pricey, but the selection is good. All in all, a great place for a cut-above-ordinary meal.

    The first time that we have not been totally satisfied. The fish tacos were difficult To eat because there was too much sauce that dripped all over! Otherwise, up to the standards that we have expected.

    The food and ambience was great. Unfortunately the service was not to what was expected based on past experience. Our waiter had an off night …. forgot about us tucked away on the solarium style section overlooking the patio. We could see him engaging with the outdoor tables but he was very slow to take our drink orders , apologized and brought drinks and then made us wait again before he returned to take our dinner order. We will be back as we feel this was atypical and not a reflection of the experiences we have had previously at The Squire.

    Wow, such amazing food and service. All the staff were lovely and we had the best waitress. We ordered several appetizers to share and they were all AMAZING. The ploughmans platter was lots of food! The Wonton app was amazing! So unique! We got to sit in the front room and it was just wonderful!

    Three salads ordered. Two were ok, steak salad was horrendous! Over sauced to the point that the salad was inedible. Three steak pieces were cold and rubbery. Dressing was balsamic and spicy - not edible. Ambience was fine, I guess. I won't return. Just too many other better places nearby.

    Fantastic menu and food was delicious - appreciated the number of items which could be made gluten free and still taste good! Would not recommend the small side patio as really felt like we were in over flow - vs actually in the restaurant but otherwise highly recommend.
