Downtown location, great service

We have eaten with our daughter, an Auburn student, at Hamilton's several times. The restaurant has a cute patio with great ambience, people watching downtown plus pretty flower planters. The inside is nice as well, not too big, active place but not overly loud. Staff is young and friendly, food... read more

Check out Hamilton's, if you are looking for more than a basic quick meal. Hamilton's menu offers a good variety of choices and daily specials. The atmosphere is a little worn, but comfortable.

We stopped in around 1115am on a Sunday for lunch. The hummus was very good. I ordered a fish sandwich with sweet potato fries that were salted to death and ruined the flavor. I picked up the fries and there was a mound of salt also on the plate. Other than that it was very good. Great service, friendly and... More

Located right downtown and s block from Toomers corner. This is a nice casual but up scale restaurant. I went for lunch before a basketball game. The food and atmosphere were excellent.

Our group of two couples stopped here for dinner while passing through Auburn. No tables were available, but we were told it would be a short 15 minute wait. 45 minutes later we were still waiting. We could have accepted that the wait was perhaps unavoidable, except the hostess was uncommunicative to the point of rudeness and we were never... More

Hamilton's consistently offers a great menu with lots of choices at a decent price. Large portions too. Have enjoyed great steaks, salads, and seafood selections the last few times I have been there. Love to eat outside when weather permits on their small patio. My only quibble is the noise level is VERY loud - especially when seated towards the... More
