We went for the first time last night with the Groupon we got a few weeks ago. Service was very nice. Friendly and efficient but not all over us or ignoring us. The music was too loud, but was turned down immediately on our request (big points for that!). Only one table empty after we sat down and the bar filled up by the time we were done. My husband liked the ribs, and I loved the fish tacos. Spicy and delicious. My son was neutral on the turkey burger (but I thought it tasted very good) and he took one of my tacos and love the red velvet cake. Coffee was fine. If I lived around Hamilton Park, I think we would be regulars.

The eggs benedict hits the spot for brunch. And their $3 bloody marys are probably the best $3 bloody marys I've ever had.

The cobb salad is a nice light lunch choice.

I like that they put rosemary on their fries. Gives 'em a little something extra going on.

I agree with ValJester, I've tried their burgers twice and probably won't again, they are lacking. The wings are very good, I prefer the asian bbq myself (yes, they are sweet, but with a nice spice). I'd also recommend the L.A. fish tacos and the fusilli (fusilli is good for two meals). I've heard good things about the lobster pizza, though I've never tried it.

I definitely recommend their risotto of the day and their soups - always very good flavors if not a bit expensive. I also enjoy the filet mignon steak sandwich and their fries are great (burgers are average).

I really love their beer selection too - lots to explore!

stopped in for dinner at the bar last month. worst fish & chips I can remember eating. just aweful, barely made it though 1/4 of the plate. Marginal calamari as well.

Can anyone recomend menu "highlights"? have no interest in going back in and guessing.

Generaly speaking, I don't see how that giant menu makes sense for that space and that kitchen.

Tried both of their wing styles last night while watching the game: asian bbq and buffalo. We liked the more standard buffalo better as the bbq was a little too sweet. Both were big, juicy, and meaty though. Will be going back for more!

Hey we were there at the same time. Food was good, drink was good, service was a little slow.

Early, 6-7, we had tickets to the penultimate performance of La Bete. Dinner was great, the show a little disappointing. I can see why it was closing.

We used a groupon there last night, our 1st time there since the new owners. Food was great, we shared a filling appetizer of huge pirogi, the lady had fish tacos w a salad and I had ribs that were falling off the bone. The sauce was tasty but a little too sweet and heavily laid on for me, I'd get it on the side next time.

They used to have a nice veggie burger and the dropped that. I guess it didn't have enough demand, but you'd think that a restaurant like that in a market like this would keep it on the menu.

They put bacon in too many things -- it's cheating, I think. Show me what the chef can really do with his/her ingredients. If I cooked my shoe with bacon, it would taste good.

As for service -- I arrived 10 minutes before the 'dinner menu' was available. I told the server I was craving pasta (which wasn't on the lunch menu). Instead of suggesting I wait a few minutes until it was 5:00, when I could order a pasta dish, he told me I could probably find some somewhere else. SERIOUSLY.

Yep I was wrong. The wings are now $8. I'll give them another try - but I stand by what I posted, last summer they were among the worst I had ever tasted.

Seriously - do a taste test on your food - particularly your wings. Go buy some frozen microwaveable Tyson buffalo wings at the local Shoprite or A&P. The Tyson wings get a 6 out of 10 for me compared to the 1 or 2 out of ten for the Hamilton wings.

In fact, fresh chicken wings are so cheap - you could probably hand out free fresh wings to customers and still make a profit on the drinks. Or stick with your $7 charge on your menu - I'd bet noone orders them twice.


What are you talking about? Must have had a bad batch because I get their wings at least twice a week an they're awesome! I especially recommend them in tandem with their football specials - $3 craft beers + $4 buffalo wings = me very happy!

Just had some of the HI's wings and they were mighty good. I didn't even know about the NFL Sunday deal.

Buffalo wings were not fresh and seemed like they were re-heated
...


The few times I recently visited the place over the summer, the wings were definitely pre-cooked then reheated. The worst wings I've ever tasted in JC. Which is a huge shame since most of the other items on their menu were excellent.

The last time I went, I was with an old friend, and we wanted to get a drink to catch up. The place was empty, and it was early evening. We sat at a small table. The waitress couldn't wait to get us out of there. She wasn't at all rude--she just kept coming over every five minutes or so to see if we wanted more drinks or if she could bring the check. I think we spent 35 minutes total there.

That was about three months ago, and I haven't gone back since.

I just don't get this place. I had a good burger at the bar a couple of weeks ago. This past Sunday a bunch of us trek through the snow to have some wings a nd drinks. Cocktails were so-so. Buffalo wings were not fresh and seemed like they were re-heated. The nachos were a joke. And the hot chocolate was the worst I ever tasted. I sent it back once (I'm not a send-it-back kinda guy) and it came back the same exact way. It tasted like water with a little bit of cocoa in it. I really believe that this place is a great addition to Hamilton Park, but they really need to get their act together. It's almost like they don't care or have such poor quality control that half the food comes out crapy. If there is anyone from the HI reading this pls realize that alot of people in the neighboorhood want you to step up your game.

Some of the food is really good, some is so-so. Some of the prices are decent, some are kind of ridiculous. Sometimes the service is good, sometimes it sucks. Zero consistency.
It's nice to have a pleasant place in the neighborhood to go to, but if it was gone it wouldn't ruin my day.

went to hamilton inn for third time or so saturday night (previous outings were mostly average) and had a very nice meal. mussels were very tasty with a nice little bite in the broth and companion's ravioli was fantastic. again nice spice. ravioli was a little pricey ($22) but worth it. woman who waited on us was also good -- casually professional. 1 drink and dish each for about $60 w/ tip.

i have been going to the inn perhaps once a week for the last two months ... there are certainly operational problems both with the wait staff and the kitchen ...

one time, we waited 45 minutes for dinner in an otherwise not particularly full restaurant ... i reminded the waiter that i actually had a plane to catch ... still it took them 20 minutes to get things out ... they were quite lackadaisical in their approach to the problem and its resolution ...

another time, out of the four of us, two got ***completely*** wrong orders ... a stunning accomplishment ... i have not seen that waiter since ... praise the owners ...

perhaps it is the summer ... perhaps they do not --- have to --- care ....

the waiters tend to prefer to congregate around the bar by the coffee makers instead of walking around to ensure that all is working smoothly ...

Went again this past Sunday night. I ordered a dinner salad and salmon for dinner - my partner ordered a large dinner salad. Wine arrived and was very warm. ( Wine on past visits has been great!). Sat. Continued to sit. I was really hungry and I could taste that wonderful bread that they serve with the olive oil. Sat some more. Server brings out two salads - correct salad for my partner - I get a salad with salmon on it. I note the error ( no big deal - we all make them in life). Server kinda tells me that's what I ordered! I correct him - he continues to tell me 'well that's what I heard'. I tell him he made an error. He tells me a second time "that's what I heard". I explain to him nicely " I'm afraid you heard incorrectly". He says ok - and then I ask him for some of the wonderful bread and oil that is served. He tells me they ran out. I tell him that I was really looking forward to it. He tells me he will try to 'scrounge something up'. There was none. So - okay - okay - we really like this place, but just not this time! So I eat the small dinner salad as my partner eats his dinner salad- then I sat and ate the salmon. We got a teeny tiny sliver of Key Lime pie to go for the mistake. We still really like this place though - the atmosphere and the food ( yes, it is a tad overpriced, but it is good and we love the location). So - we will be back. We all can have a bad day. Hey Hamilton - don't run out of bread on Sundays by 7pm please!
