Wonderful surprise!

Last minute decision and we were not disappointed! Food was delicious and plentiful. Server was friendly and attentive. Value for your dollar!

Used to love this place but have had poor food the last two times and the prices are so much higher. 7.00 plus tax for a small bowl of overdone sweet potatoes fries? The prize though, was the totally overdone quiche. I couldn't even eat the crust. I am going to try and upload an image. I know, we should... More

My daughter was in from Scotland and she & my older son & I stopped into the Bean Bar in Westdale. We were starved having just spent the day moving from my house to my new apartment and we so appreciated the quick and efficient attention paid to our seating and order taking. We selected a unique and tasty shared... More

Went in tonight with my girlfriend to eat. Website says 1am they close, as does their sign. Walked in. Immediately was shut down with a "we're closed. Unless you want a cake to go". Mentioned that the website says they close at 1am, she replied "I know, but we're closing early today". Over an hour early.

New Food Friday #15 We ordered Truffled Fries, Lamb Shanks, Hells-Kitchen Gnocchi. I really did not like the lamb shanks - Thank goodness it wasn't my meal. The hells-kitchen gnocchi was pretty good. To drink we had an After-eight and a Chocolate mocha. We also had some amazing dessert. I think if we were to go back it would just... More

Really enjoyed recent visit to this eatery. It has been many years since I have been to the Bean Bar. I really liked the relaxed atmosphere of the place. Lots of food choices and they are all good. I had the spicy pork tenderloin. Excellent! Definitely will come back to this place again.

We planned to go for dessert but it turned out we were all hungry. The menu has many choices. As one of my dining companions said, it is comfort food kicked up a notch - with mac & cheese & bacon & peas & grilled cheese from heaven. We happily devoured our meals and saved room for their spectacular desserts.... More

We dined as 4 adults and a baby. The waiter offered a booster chair and special seating although it was not necessary. The food and drink was excellent and the service was superb. We had steaks, pasta and salmon wraps. All were excellent and save room for the delicious desserts! This is our favourite restaurant in the Hamilton area1

Was my first visit here with 2 friends who'd been before. All the dishes the servers were passing by with looked delicious. I had the Bean Bar salad, which tasted very fresh and was a good size portion, Came with a chunk of cornbread which was good too. Friends had a Cobb salad and a sandwich which was on a... More

Once again, Bean Bar was hopping at lunch. I noticed that in June, they would donate $5 of every mussels order to Juvenile Diabetes Research. And so, I ordered the mussels. They were really great. Spicy, thick sauce. Generous portion. Superb bread. One of us had the Sloppy Joe grilled cheese, a personal calorie-laden favourite, and once again, it was... More
