Good Old Fashioned Restaurant Pub Hotel

Good food, excellent beer choices, and a decent night stay should be expected in this establishment in this delightful small upstate NY town.

Great beer selection. Charcuterie with all NYS cheese and meat was incredible. Lamb tacos tasted like Mexico.

Given the limited choices in Hamilton NY, anyone who sends their kid(s) to Colgate will get plenty of experience with this place. While it looks lovely, and can be so at times, the overall value is just 'so-so'. The food in the restaurant is usually okay, but never 'great' and on occasion, terrible. The front desk staff is hit and... More

The entire inn is stunning! It has a romantic feel to it but is great for any special occasion or just a nice night out. We went as a family for a nice lunch. All of our food was extremely tasty and beautifully presented. The prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. The service was outstanding... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our meal. We sort of stumbled upon the Colgate Inn and went in without any expectations. We had a delicious meal and the service was terrific!

I've had a long romance with this place, and it never lets me down. Vegetarians, go for the Utica Style Greens. Not necessarily good branding there, but fantastic! Learn more about my adventures at the Colgate Inn here: http://bashfuladventurer.com/a-quick-getaway-to-the-colgate-inn/

Had lots of tuna at dinner in the bar – wonderful food! Good wine and the calamari was great! So enjoy our time in Hamilton.

Went to breakfast with a couple of friends who arrived a few minutes after me. I walked into the restaurant, and although there were 4 or 5 greeters and servers gathered around the reception table, it seemed like they didn't see me even though I was right in front of them. They were all talking and it took them about... More
