We went for dinner with some friends on a quiet Tuesday night. The restaurant had very few customers, so we thought it should be good since the kitchen was not busy. We ordered two appetizers that came out after quick, but,after a couple of minutes out came the dinners, even tough we barely started on our appetizers. The server offered to take the dinners back to the kitchen (we had no space on the table) and bring them back after the appetizers were done. We had ordered the lobster special and the Steak Frittes. when the dinners came back all the dishes were COLD, including the lobsters. They took the lobsters back, and brought them back barely luke warm, tough and chewy from the attempted rewarm. Overall the whole dinner was a fiasco!

My reservation was for 8:15pm. I arrived on time was told my table will be ready in a few minutes. After 35 minutes and still not seated we told the Hostess we couldn’t wait any longer. We went to the Brownstone diner. I feel the reservation should not been booked by the Hamilton Inn. It was a waste of my and my party’s time.

It was a fun place and the ambience was conducive to a weekend night out. It was a bit cold and they were very willing to turn on the heater and make sure we were comfortable.

I love Hamilton Inn. There's something about this place that is so warm and welcoming. The food is delicious and the staff is so nice and accommodating. They have great nightly specials on drinks and are open late on Friday's and Saturdays. It is a neighborhood gem for sure!!

Great little spot. Food and service we're very good. Great cocktail. Though I liked the mix, the music seemed unnecessarily loud. I think they turned it down at some point, either that or the cocktails took the edge off.

We weren’t seated until 30 minutes after our reservation even though we were there early. There was no apology or offer to accommodate us in any way. The host ignored us for the most part which was disappointing since we were there for a birthday celebration.

Once we were finally seated, the waitress was great and the food was delicious.

So happy that the chef changed the menu & offered the "Robert Plant" veggie burger, which tasted really good! I didn't care for the goat cheese on the burger; I took it off & ate it with my side salad instead. I hope the restaurant keeps this item on the menu! Also, they have the best coffee!

We went for brunch. My daughter was pregnant so she needed her egg cooked hard. They struggled with that request. After returning the food to the kitchen twice she ate what was okay for her.
I got the breakfast burrito. It was a little dry

There must be a premium on water in Jersey City since it was impossible to get a glass of water with dinner, not to mention that they charge $2.00 for “Rocks” should you order a drink on the rocks. But aside from that and the mouse constantly running around the place during dinner, aces in my book.

I wouldn’t really classify this as a place for a business meal but that is why I was there. My client chose it based on wanting to try a local place near his new work location.
The service was on point. Attentive and patient. The food was great. Good for foodies without being too pretentious. I’d describe the vibe as JC Hipster which is why I wouldn’t necessarily classify it as a place for a business meal...but hipsters don’t judge you if you’re in a suit. So give it a try regardless of what you’re wearing, who you are with and the purpose for the meal.

I will definitely return.

The place is beautiful, fun, seems to be lively and popular. Disappointed with the follow-through by management when a concern was expressed. Otherwise I'm sure it's a lovely place.

Food delicious. However, we are with our coats on because every time the door opened, cold would rush in. There should be a better way to keep those sitting near the door warmer.

Went for resturant week and definitely enjoyed. Food was great and was quiet on a Tuesday. Been here before on a weekend night and it definitely gets crowded. Also enjoy sitting at the bar and getting an easy bite.

The Hamilton Inn provides great, dimly-lit ambience at night and an Earthy, neighborhood vibe. The menu has great tasting, fresh options in American cuisine, with some more typical North East-like, choice items. Everything is tasty!

The service is fantastic and very prompt. Great vibe at this location.

We absolutely loved the korean bbq wings we ordered. Great portion sizes especially for Jersey City , where we typically see smaller portions. The french dip sandwich was very good- could have been a tiny bit more tender. The fish tacos were good as well but could have had a little bit more flavor. Great service, music, and ambiance.

Mostly it’s a bar/restaurant with the usual food but the recent addition of the pork restaurant next door added some interesting bbq items (they’re jointly owned ). The pork bun appetizer was delicious. My complaint on my main course, the ahi tuna sandwich was that it quickly fell apart, the bun was too weak. The wait and hosting staff were friendly and attentive . The atmosphere is relaxed. They do need to update their website because it still says they have parking and they don’t anymore which we only discovered after getting there and having to call to ask where it was because we couldn’t find it.

Great brunch! Breakfast burrito would have been perfect if the cheese-to-rice ratio was swapped... more cheese, less rice.

Otherwise, good food, good drinks, great atmosphere. Will be back!

Noontime lunch on a Tuesday, no wait, quiet. Easy access/location. Superb waiter, great food - Inn Burger, Corned Beef sandwich, Pork Belly Buns (I think it's called) appetizer. Prompt, attentive service. Have been there before, good experiences every time (except once), will definitely be back.

Seriously, you gotta try the Pork Belly Buns!

I'm a regular of Hamilton Inn's delivery and always enjoy going there, although their food in house can sometimes be inconsistent. I never have an issue with delivery for some reason, but my last visit, the fish tacos were bland, which isn't typically the case. Service was awesome. Good selection of booze. Not too pricey. Cozy af inside just try to not sit by the door - it's freezing by the door in the winter.
