This is one place we can call "old faithful" because we have been going here for years celebrating birthdays, going to football games, etc. The decor and art work (on the walls) reflect the excellent food that is served here. Their menu changes often enough to keep it interesting. My wife regularly orders an appetizer: crab cakes. It is a... More

We stopped in on a Friday afternoon for a cool drink and an early bite or two. The smoked tuna dip was fabulous and my husband and I shared the Mahi Mahi sandwich. It was perfection. Sitting outside under the ceiling fan on a warm summer afternoon and watching the locals walk by, some stopping to talk, was just the... More

This was actually a default destination as many of the best restaurants in Auburn are closed on Mondays, and our anniversary fell on a Monday. However, the food was delicious, and we didn't feel "compromised" by this selection. My steak was cooked just as I like it and my husband's choice of fresh halibut was a good one. Our major... More

My daughter and her fiancé live in Auburn and we live about two hours away. My mother and I came up for a visit yesterday and I chose to eat here as none of us had ever eaten here before. Boy, am I glad I did. We had a wonderful meal and experience. We all loved the atmosphere, friendly, a... More

I had a steak that was cooked to perfection. The sides were tasty and the service was friendly and attentive. My favorite part of the meal was when I noticed they had creme' brûlée on the dessert menu. It was some of the best I have ever experienced. It's a bit pricey so student probably have to wait for mom... More

This may be the best restaurant we've been to in our trip. The cucumber, tomato and onion salad was fantastic as was the noodle salad with shrimp and crawfish(southern Thai salad). Grouper was delicious and Shrimp and Grits were to die for. The fried green tomato and shrimp appetizer was also excellent. Bread pudding with whiskey sauce a great dessert.... More

Delicious food but quite a wait. It is what happens on a Friday night in Auburn especially with Bo Bikes BAMA the next day. In fact we decided to stay at the bar and eat and pull up chairs at hightop for friends who came up. All was delicious though. I got the tuna and it was cooked just write... More

From the 'Good Afternoon' to the 'Have a Blessed Day', the dining experience at Hamiltons was everything that was expected from the previous 150+ reviews. (By the way, ignore the bad ones - it's the people, not the food!). Yes, the prices are a little above average, at approximately $15pp for lunch, but it's not a 4 for $4 meal... More

When my sorority sisters and I get together in Auburn, we always make a stop at Hamilton's. It has a great atmosphere and it is a central location. The chicken salad is great and there are two options-cranberry or buffalo and both are delisht! The crab cakes and soups are good, too.

I frequent Hamilton's several times a month, and I'm consistently satisfied with the food and service. The shrimp and grits are a favorite, and their sandwiches are good. It's also a great place to grab a drink after work, although if you're hoping for outdoor seating, they are pretty limited.
