We had a very small wedding rehearsal dinner - 10 total. We booked the back corner of Ryans a couple of months in advance. When we arrived, we were surprised to find out that it was Witches Night Out in Hamilton. The servers were dressed as witches and warlocks and they had a special menu for the event. This made...

I had dinner here with two fellow businessmen. The menu was standard pub fare. I opted for tavern salad and soup. There was nothing special about the food and the service was mediocre. .

My husband and I have tried this place more than once and just do not care for it. Menu needs more selection. Food just okay. Service could be better. We have been disappointed every time. Probably will not return.

I was surprised that the serving was about half of what it has been in the past. I also think that the recipe has been drastically altered. I was... More

Food average, atmosphere GREAT. Beautiful Irish pub with lovely decor located in the heart of downtown Hamilton. Menu selection is disappointing. Wish they had better food. Service slow on our week night visit, but we didn't mind as we were out with friends for conversation. Waitress was unacquainted with beer choices and was unable to make good recommendations....resulting in my... More

My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner here. We met with the owner before the dinner and went over the dining options. Mr. Ryan is an extremely nice person and was genuine about providing us with a positive experience at his restaurant. He allowed us to choose the menu for our guests and everything went exactly as we had... More
