The Bean Bar has been a favorite of mine for the past 10 years and they never fail to impress. This laid back, non-franchised gem serves some of the best food I've had in Hamilton. My current favorites are the To Die For sandwich which is a wonderful tasting beef dip smothered in cheese and onions. Never dry and always... More

Went there with a friend and we both ordered pastas. The service was quick and the food tasty. I ordered a herbal tea which was just ok though.

The restaurant was very busy on a sat. night. The four of us got a seat quickly. The atmosphere was electric with a lot of people talking and eating and enjoying themselves. I had the bean bar salad with a chicken breast on the side. The salad was delicious and the chicken breast was made perfectly. The desserts are to... More

This place in Westdale is very good. Some good gluten free options. The cake selection will make your head spin. We had the brie with cranberry and split a salad. A little expensive but very yummy. It's not a huge place so go early if u can.

Recently took the family here for dinner, most of us had burgers or a fried chicken burger. They were excellent, almost too big to take a bite out of. My only disappointment were the side, they had a $7 truffle oil fry option that sounded good as I've had these in other restaurants before. But the fries were just ok,... More

Been here a couple of times on visits north to take in a Tiger-cats game at Tim Hortons field. Coach Jeff Reinebold took us there saying,"there is no other place we need to consider" he was not wrong. Excellent menu and service and a local fav among Ti-cat players for a reason. Will return in 2016!
