Stopped in at The Honest Lawyer for an early dinner while our daughter was rehearing a show. It wasn't very busy. Tables were empty but had drinks spilled all over them. Had to switch tables to get a waitresses attention after waiting 15 minutes and no one acknowledging us. Waited another 15 for a soft drink. Ordered nachos that came... More

Made a reservation online a couple of days before - when we arrived at 5:15pm, we were told they don't take reservations on event days, so we found a spot on the patio. After being told it would be 1 hour for food to come out, we ordered right away as we were attending a concert at 7:30pm. Waited 30... More

4 o'clock Monday afternoon. The place was empty and we were told to sit anywhere and someone would be right with us. Other people started arriving and getting menus, drink orders taken, etc. 20 minutes after our arrival we snagged a guy to give us a menu. 10 minutes later we found a waitress who told us nobody was looking...

Visited The Honest Lawyer for lunch today while attending a conference at the HCC. Short walking distance so figured we'd give it a try since we did not have much time for lunch. First impression when walking in was that the restaurant looked dark, gloomy and very tired. Does not look like anyone renovated in years... We proceeded to seat... More

When in Hamilton, we seem to migrate to this bar a lot. Close to all downtown hotels and right across the street from the Kops. It has changed a bit since the last. Food was good and big amounts with a good price. Music was a bit loud but good. Will be back again for sure.

Good bar type food in a sports lounge type atmosphere. Went there late, just before 11:00 p.m. after a concert as limited spots open in area on a weekday night (Wednesday). Although door sign said open until midnight after being seated we were advised the kitchen was closed prior to 11 pm so only very limited deep fried finger foods... More

A few friends and I went in for a late lunch. Staff was friendly right out of the gate. Showed my friends and I to a great table right away. The food was great and quick! It was my first time, but won't be my last!

Was in town for high school football championships. Attended restaurant for supper. Considering it was bar setting food was good. Monday and Thursday are 5 buck per pins of wings. Wings were great...big and great taste. Server was good as well even though working by herself
