Every time we go there its great food- great atmosphere and overall a great experience- fun to head down to the water afterwards and skip some rocks! A must every summer at least a couple of times!

Hutch's has been a part of Hamilton for longer than most people have lived here. It's a must-try fast food destination for the foodie in you. Although it's not always that fast... and not always that perfect... it just rocks, because it's Hutch's.

This place is great. Walk up to the counter, place your order, wait for your number to be called and find a seat. The restaurant is huge and it's like a step back in time. The setting on the waterfront adds to the experience. The...More
