Nice breakfast

Tried the restaurant at the Colgate Inn for breakfast during a recent say on July 4th. We chose to sit in the dining room, which was nice but the bar area also has seating and looked very cool. The dining room was on the chilly side, but we switched seats and it wasn't unbearable - I would bring a... read more

We were there on a rainy December day. Service was fantastic, never rushed but always friendly. We sat in front of the large welcoming fireplace that was in the bar area. We had a Steakhouse Burger and the Grilled Chicken Caprese sandwich. Both were very good and made for a full meal. Can't wait to go back and spend a... More

The atmosphere is quaint and historic. The Inn is and always has been a nice place to stay or to eat. However, on a busy weekend ( July 4th) they seem ill prepared to handle volume. Service is extremely slow and inefficient. Food is ok, I had clams that were swimming in tomatoes, and scallops that were ok just had... More

Bar was comfortable and welcoming. Had we settled for drinks, all would have been fine. But the roast beef panini was awful, a few shreds of beef on tasteless toast. We had "Utica greens" as well. But there are a few dozen places where the greens are much, much better, and the portions larger. Stick with drinks and eat somewhere... More

The Colgate Inn is one of the most popular restaurants among students for occasions including birthdays and visiting parents. The food is good but it is certainly one of the fancier and pricier options in town. Its often hard to get reservations on popular weekends (and they sometimes only offer buffet-style dining at these times), so call ahead to make... More

The renovations are terrific. This is our go-to place for drinks, lunch and dinner when in town. Friendly servers, very good food. Love sitting outside on the patio for apps and drinks!

Fantastic place for a business lunch, dinner date or night out. The food was fantastic as was the venue itself and the service was very good.

I have eaten at the Colgate Inn a few times and I was looking for a place to have my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary party so I started shopping around between Hamilton and Cazenovia area. I went to a few places and had dinner and talked with them about prices and menu's. I decided on the Colgate Inn. I am... More

If you are in Hamilton, your choices are limited. We took our daughter and some teammmates to the Inn for dinner. We were seated at a table that had direct sunlight blasting into one or more of us as it was setting. No blinds on window to block it. The food was pretty sad. I ordered the Southwestern Chicken soup... More
