This place is fantastic for breakfast (and I wouldn't be surprised if their other meals were pretty awesome, too). The dining room is just perfect and the food is absolutely top quality. Service is also excellent. It probably won't be the least expensive breakfast you...More

The dining room and bar at night are very welcoming and comfortable. Service was professional and pleasant. The food was nothing special but also no complaints. Prices are a little high but that's to be expected in a place like this. You're paying to eat...More

For an historic inn in such a beautiful and wealthy town, I expected more. Service was extremely slow for lunch. If you are on a schedule, I suggest you let your server know. The food was fine, but nothing special. No one in our party...More

This classic restaurant in downtown Hamilton is touted by many as the "best." Our experience was disappointing. We started our meal with a cup of the chicken soup of the day. It was hot and delicious. My wife ordered the overpriced roasted chicken, which was...More

It seemed the obvious choice for dinner while staying at the Inn and it did not disappoint. It is very reasonably priced and seems popular as a dining location for local families too. Enjoyed a soup and a hearty burger platter -- good quality and...More
