We went for the Restaurant Week Brunch Specials. The food was great and the portion sizes were huge. Great value, great food. Gabriel took care of us and could not have been nicer.

The food and mood was awesome. Daniel was great and provided suggestions that were spot on. Meatloaf was the best I ever had. Fried Green Tomatoes and Crab Lump Deviled Eggs were great starters. After a few glasses of wine we finished off the delicious meal with Bourbon Toffee Bread Pudding! To die for.

Went here for restaurant week. This is about the seventh time at the restaurant. I know the Hamilton has much more potential than what I experienced during restaurant week. It is like your A student performing at a C level. I order the B]blue mussels and the hanger steak. Both are on the regular menu. The mussels came out great. A nice mix of sausage and garlic. The hanger steak with frites came out in a large portion. Lots of sauce on top. Now the steak was a good size but it was extremely tough. My friend and myself had the same experience. I’ve had better steaks at Outback. This is not Hamilton standards and was an epic FAIL. Maybe it was just a restaurant glitch.

A very good spot for dinner and good food!! But too much conditioned air, we weren’t so relaxed during our couple’s time... Bring your shirt if you are not used to! (I had it but wasn’t enough)!

I thoroughly enjoyed my options as my friend and I dined at The Hamilton. I did make the typical mistake of going to Hamilton’s a dive bar not too far away but both were perfect fitting for a spontaneous classy birthday.

My date and I had a great time. We made a last minute reservation and they were very accommodating. We had Daniel as our server, and he was top notch! I've been in industry for 12 years, and he is one of the best I've seen. The food was delicious and same with the drinks.

Met a friend for lunch during restaurant week. I had the fried green tomatoes (excellent per the southern girl), my friend had the market salad (good, but meal size, not appetizer size), we both had the boy, with the best tomatoes ever and we both took half the sandwich home with out desserts, blueberry crumble yummy and chocolate pie. Food was really good, but American portion sizes.

Food was very good -- our table's food ranged from fried green tomatoes, to hangar steak, to salad, to salmon to crab cakes. The house cabernet sauvignon was great. Noise level huge near the bar, but we were seated in a booth with little saloon type doors and that helped some. Our server was spectacular! Beautiful historic feeling restaurant with high ceilings and lovely wood details.

Fantastic everything. Amazing food, atmosphere, service, drinks, and dessert! Highly recommend the fried green tomatoes. Old school elegance meets contemporary foodie demands. And most importantly, kid friendly.

Will return.

The Hamilton never disappoints! The food is always amazing and our server was top notch this time. Last time the service wasn't as great but it was much less busy this time. If you haven't had the ricotta donuts, run, don't walk. They are to die for. My only critique is that one of our favorite things that we keep coming back for is the Hamilton Mule. The first two were perfect but the third one was not great and completely different. Not a huge ding but your bartenders should be able to make the signature drink consistently.

The main dishes (steak and fillet with sides) we ordered, came 4 minutes after our appetizers came to table, we sent them back to kitchen.
Less than 10 min later the waitress came to ask how is everything and we said the main dishes came way too early, she was surprised and said "oh really? Sorry abour that", then as soon as she left our table our main dishes came again, I had to put my appetizer beside and eat my fillet first as its getting cold...
It's a shame for a restaurant like this one,
I would expect the kitcehn to be more professional.
The server was nice and the taste was good though.
It was my birthday dinner, and overall we didnt like to be rushed through our food.
Its not my first time her, enjoyed it more during my visit in May, and I would still recommend but I would make sure to remind them to bring the food slowly.

I love the Hamilton because it food is always awesome, and the vibe is cool. However, the district wings were super tiny and the drink just didn’t taste as good as when it was first served. I will be back, but i just was not as satisfied.

Came a little after 1:30pm. Service was very very slow. Never checked back on us. Server was constantly “MIA” and we had to ask someone to look for her. Terrible. Female servers shouldn’t be allowed to have a nail longer than 0.5 inches with bright neon yellow nail polish.

Everything was awesome except your host.He would not let us sit down at our table until the entire party arrived. He very curtly told me twice to find a table in the bar and get a drink until others arrived. When others are joining you from other places and have to deal with rush hour and it’s been a long day at work, I felt we should have been able to sit at our table and order a drink while we waited on the rest of the party to arrive. It’s Happy Hour, the bar is full and there is no where to go!!! So we stand there getting bumped into by wait staff and other customers. It was very irritating and you need to take a second look at your policy. We would have bought drinks at our table while we waited. Our waitress and the food were fabulous!
