The Black Forest Inn is in an old non-descript downtown commercial building in downtown Hamilton. There are no inside views from outside but inside is very Bavarian, and so is the snappy attire of the staff! I ordered what I thought was the standard Schnitzel with garlic mashed potatoes. When it came and was placed before me, the Schnitzel hid the plate. The sumptuous garlic mashed were on a separate plate, no wonder! To be honest, I ate about one third of the schnitzel and half the garlic mashed (took the rest home for two meals). If you're in Hamilton, spring bear hungry, want to eat and like great German quisene, I HIGHLY recommend the Black Forest Inn. You shouldn't leave hungry, or thirsty!

We have been going to the Black Forest for over forty years.
A great place to gather and have delicious food.
I have pretty much had everything on the menu and it is all excellent. Not a bad meal ever. Also we do take out at least once a month.
Try the platters. They have a good variety and are very filling.
I would not hesitate to recommend the Black Forest Inn.

The food is great. The portions are generous. The prices are fair. The service is good. The only issue is they don't take reservations so be prepared to wait in a cramped waiting area. The bright side is you have access to the bar while waiting. One of my favorites when we have the time.
