We were in Auburn for a football weekend and found Hamilton's on Friday for lunch. It was great. We loved the food and the service was some of the best ever (we were from the opposing school). We decided if possible we would eat there one more time before we left...so...Saturday before the game we had lunch there again. Our... More

Met a sorority sister from the early 80's here recently for an early (5 p.m.) dinner. The wait staff was excellent and our supper was too. Quiet enough to talk but lively enough to enjoy a Thursday night with Auburn spirit!

Was in the area doing some shopping and all the locals told me to try out Hamilton's. I went by myself for lunch. They let me seat myself at the bar but didn't give me a lunch menu; so I had to get it myself from the hostess. Waitress was really nice when she finally came. Ordered the Spectacular Spinach...

A simple but tasty lunch and dinner menu give this restaurant a small, local feel. The Mahi sandwich with lobster bisque for lunch is my recommendation and make sure you try the fried crab claws if they're available!

The service was great, the food was great, and we enjoyed our meal immensely. My wife had the Pork Tenderloin and I had the Shrimp and Grits. We loved them both and decided to share half of each. Great atmosphere, and not too bad on the wallet. We had a nice evening there.

And the food is great as well. Great specials everyday and the own has an eye, shall we say, for talent. All dressed in black but some of Auburn's classic southern beauties will serve you with a smile here. Downtown Auburn's best high-end food choice.

Great up scale dinning experience... Very elegant and extremely nice atmosphere. If I had one suggestion to make it would be to add more appetizers to the menue... Very nice but small. I actually wish it were bigger in order to accommodate a larger clientele but not sure the kitchen could handle it. I am very picky and this is... More

I love the outdoor dining option - it is fun to be right on Magnolia and people watch! A bit noisy inside, but great food and attractive atmosphere.
