All establishments have off evenings, this was surely one for Hamilton's Grill Room. Very slow and irregular service plagued our meal thru out with the order sequence incorrect. We ordered the crab cake appetizer, the crab cake was poorly prepared (very flat and dense) and the crab meat was either old or more likely canned (metallic in taste). Next a... More

My wife and I had lunch here one afternoon and it was wonderful. I had no idea what to expect, just booked it on OpenTable without knowing anything about it. Food was good, service was good. We're going to come back for dinner some evening as it was that good.

We have eaten here at least a half dozen times over the past few years. We came tonight to celebrate out anniversary and although the ambiance is consistently warm and inviting, the food usually reliable, tonight the service was disappointing. Of course we were not in a hurry--- it is a celebratory meal to be enjoyed and lingered over. But... More

The food is excellent and the wait staff is good. The price is in the fine dining category. Parking could be a problem. However, well worth a night out.

HG is a charming cozy restaurant and it's always a pleasure to start the evening with a cocktail at the Boat House next door. We had the Cowboy Steak for two, and while it's not filet mignon it was not tender at all. Our side of broccoli prosciutto was very tasty, but it was not served at the same time... More

Hamilton's Grill Room is tucked down an alley in Lambertville , (across from the BoatHouse Bar). Excellent oysters and fish and a nice choice of steak cuts. Always professionally prepared and presented. Not stuffy but elegant and diners never where ties - only the very occasional jacket. outdoor seating in the summer. BYOB. Can't miss for a romantic eveing.

Hamiltons definitely didn't disappoint. First, remember to bring your own wine. The wait staff will open it for your table but they don't sell any on site. I actually preferred this since you can have your favorites and aren't limited in your selection. We started with clams and some shrimp on a deviled egg. Both were very good. I had... More

Our first time at the highly-touted Hamilton Grill for a special birthday dinner. The service on this busy Saturday night was attentive but not fully engaged. Very cursory welcome from the maitre'd, the waiter did not offer to pour our wine (BYOB), and our bread service was overlooked. The fresh oysters for our appetizer were on the small side but...
