Bean Bar is one of those restaurants we had tucked away in our minds, as a place we wanted to try some day. Always looking for something a little different, this place did not disappoint. The decor is dated, I'm assuming intentionally, because it works. The staff and service is over the top, from the moment you walk through the... More

Went for dinner with friends. Each of us ordered a different item and we all left satisfied and happy. This is a regular haunt for me. None of my friends have been there for a while. Fries and dessert were the highlight. The small taco meal was very generous and the grilled cheese was delicious. We will be back soon.

This place was trendy a long time ago and popular when there weren't many good restaurants in Hamilton, but Hamilton has evolved into the foodie city now with new, great restaurants popping up all over town, and is starting to overtake Toronto in this regard. So the bar is set a lot higher than it used to be for restaurants... More

I went with a friend today to the Bean Bar. I had been here previously, but only for coffee and dessert. I saw that they had a large menu, so was wanting to try it for a meal. I had the french onion soup that had phylo pastry on top instead of crouton. Nice. My meal was a To Die... More

I love going to bean bar, especially for their dessert. They're cakes are so amazing, they have a huge selection and if you need help deciding a worker will come by and name every cake for you and help with suggestions. I also love the main course meals, the only thing is I wish the sandwiches would come with a... More

Great meal at reasonable price. Waitress was very friendly and interested. My wife has a milk allergy and this didn't phase them at all. Good choice and clearly appeals to all ages. Great desserts. Thanks

Have been wanting to go here for awhile and decided to stop in on a Friday, around early evening. Busy, but not so busy that we couldn't get seats. Seated promptly. Ordered the special (sesame garlic ribs with vegetables and truffle fries). My boyfriend ordered the Bean Bar Club (chicken, prosciutto, cheese, etc). He also ordered sweet potato fries (it... More

My friends and I went there on a Tuesday evening and everything we ordered was really tasty. The staff was really welcoming and gave good recommendations. Definitely try the pulled pork quesadilla! As for dessert, they have the most amazing cakes that they order in form a bunch of different bakeries. The white chocolate coconut meringue cheesecake is one of... More

We ordered dinner which was pretty good, but the dessert was amazing!!! They have the best cakes and cheesecakes in Hamilton. They are open late which is nice because not a lot of places here are.

My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. We ordered a pitcher of the Hamilton brewery Blue Collar beer - it was served with frosted glasses and tasted delicious! We also ordered 2 starters to share: the calamari and fried cauliflower. Calamari was cooked just right and came with some tasty sauces. The fried cauliflower was interesting! A... More
