We are staying at the Camelback Resort with terrible food options so ventured the 20 minutes to The Hamilton. It is worth it. The place is adorable - a cute country restaurant. Our server was attentive, friendly, and could make recommendations. And most of all - the food was fantastic. We had a hanger steak, crab cakes, and a couple of children’s entrees. All were perfectly prepared- the care put into the food preparation was obvious. We also had the fried calamari- always a sign when a restaurant can’t get that right. The Hamilton got it right!

If you’re in the Poconos and looking for a meal worth spending money on after a long day on the slopes - drive to The Hamilton. It’s worth it. You won’t leave hungry, broke, or disappointed (like many other places in/near camelback). You’ll thank me!

This was our first expereince at The Hamilton. We were celebrating friends' 50th anniversary. Jackie was very helpful with the planning. We requested a round table which was perfect for our party of 6. The menu choices were ample. Each of us ordered something different and everyone was pleased! The Caesar salad needs some work and the servers were friendly but perhaps short staffed. But the gaps produced a leisurely dining expereince and that really worked perfectly to our needs. There was even a quick call to let us know we left a phone on the table.
We shall return. And you should too!

I made a reservation based on the online menu and ratings. Upon our arrival we were greeted immediately and seated. We waited quite a while for our waitress, but with the current climate of employee shortages it was not her fault and it didn’t take from our experience. She did a great job. When we went to order food and drinks the menu was different. There was no filet mignon. On the house menu and specials the menu many of the selections were unavailable. My guests also tried to order cocktails that they couldn’t get. The crab cakes were very good, two of us ordered the steak that replaced the filet. It was tender however it had no flavor. The bread that was served was warm and fresh. It was good. Also one of us had the lamb that was also good. It was a 50/50. Being a local business person to be fair I would give this place another try. I had taken a few investors here. It was disappointing that they could not order what they wanted. Maybe it was just not a great day.

Hi Colleen, Sorry your experience dining with us did not live up to your expectations. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the crab cakes and lamb! The Piedmontese steak is generally more flavorful than a fillet. We make menu changes constantly due to supply issues and seasonal menu changes. Unfortunately our website provider does not make the changes fast enough. Going forward, we change our menu frequently and seasonally. We will continue to work diligently to keep our online menus updated.

Food is definitely overpriced. Two star atmosphere, no ambiance, terrible food presentation. Server never gave her name and seemed to be annoyed she had to interrupt her bartending to wait tables. Only one person at the bar, by the way. Will not go back.

Place was clean . Staff was attentive as possible I’m sure they were short handed like most places but they did a good job, had the sea bass was WATER logged and tasteless besides the pistachios that it was encrusted in, we had the tuna nachos for
Appetizer that was good , my kettle one martini wasn’t kettle one. So overall was disappointed .

Dinner at The Hamilton in Saylorsburg last night with good friends. The Seabass was outstanding one of the best I’ve ever had, my husband had the hanger steak and he would go back just for that. Hibiscus Margarita was great. All in all recommend this local small business to anyone! Loved it!!

We’ve eaten here many times, inside, takeout. Food is always on point.
Great beer, wine selection. First rate bar/cocktails. Food and beverages all very inventive without being ridiculous. Leisurely and unrushed experience. Staff is adjusting to being busier now that restrictions have been eased, but still very attentive.
Kelly and Lily are both wonderful.

The Hamilton is a welcome respite from the typical burger/pizza/wings restaurants you find in The Poconos. The food was outstanding and the portions were huge (perhaps too big.) We loved the tuna nachos and the scallops on the risotto were perfectly cooked Service was fantastic. Our waitress Eliza had a smile on her face the entire time and was very enthusiastic. We hope to return during our next trip to the area.

This is a cute restaurant tucked away in a country road. Some of the food(ie more traditional dishes ) were quite tasty but I was disappointed by the lobster risotto. The lobster was not fresh and the risotto had no creamy quality so just a bust. Our waitress was lovely and the staff seemed to be friendly with everyone.
I would go back but I would not order anything but traditional American fare.

We were in the area celebrating our friends anniversary, and had a sudden change of plans for dinner. Hopped on Opentable and we were able to get a table for dinner. So glad our travels brought us here!! Amazing service and delicious food and drinks!!! I had the steak of the day which was a perfectly cooked filet with melted blue cheese, and my husband had the smoked duck breast which was equally as yummy. Had the chocolate truffle dessert to-go (because we had a bit of a drive ahead of us) and it was delicious, completely devoured it in the car.
