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

We were here for a dinner prior to a wedding and it was excellent. The service was prompt and everyone was happy. The restaurant was comforting and the decor was amazing, almost like home.

I'm writing because we almost went elsewhere after reading a few of the reviews, and I'm so very glad I decided to discover for myself. We ate in the Tavern. Such a homey atmosphere, with the beautiful wood and fireplace. Our server, Todd, could NOT have done more to make our visit a pleasant one. He was prompt, gave us... More

The Colgate Inn is a good place to stay, and the bar is good place to eat if you in the mood for bar fooding, but there are better places in town to get a sit down meal.

I had been looking forward to eating here, but was so disappointed in the poor service - there was an attitude from the beginning from the waitress, and the customers beside me had a similar experience. We hadn't finished our starters when the main course was put in front of us, and the food was quite poor, but the thing... More
