“Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

As has been said in other reviews, the food is excellent, the portions are huge and the prices are reasonable. If you are a hot dog fan, you have to try a hotchee dog (they are not listed on the menu). If you don't care for dogs try the hotchee burger (also not on the menu). Make sure to order gravy on your fries! If you are not in the mood for fries try the onion rings--you will love them. Breakfast at the Hamilton is always great. The home fries are not greasy and the sausage patties aren't pre-stamped. The whole staff--Tommy, Lisa, Stacy, etc.--are wonderful.

“Nice comfortable inexpensive and good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

Locals seem to like this restaurant and they have a nice atmosphere. The breakfasts and pie are my favorite here and it is in nice location to other businesses, several churches, Dickinson college and a really nice library. Food reasonably priced and service good. Would eat here again.

“Home town food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

A Carlisle fixture. Good prices. Excellent, basic food. Quick service. It's not about atmosphere but about good food.

“Hachi special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

What a great place. Had a great breakfast here and came back for supper. hachi special one dog, one burger and fries (with gravy if you like). Super reasonable, special less than $10 and you were full. Some of the best food I've had. Waitress was a doll. Family owned, consistantly good.

“Good Food on A Consistent Basis”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The wife and I have eaten here a few times. If you go here enough there is no need to see the menu as things here do not change much. On this visit I got hotchee dogs with everything to go.

The food is always hot and the service is fast. If you are looking for fine dining this may not be the place for you.
