Visited our favorite tavern for comfort food last week. Arrived to find a wait staff of unfamiliar faces, 1st sign of change. Ordered cocktails, Old Hamiltons, a Crosstown Burger, a Crispy Chix sandwich and Mac N Cheese dinner special. Our waiter didn't know what the dinner special was, Thursday dinner menu listed the special as Mac N Cheese. We ordered... More

We've been to Hamilton Tavern a few times now and love it. We've never had a bad meal and the burgers are the best around. The onion rings are the best too.

HT is known for its burger, but it has so much more to offer. It's one of the most consistently good kitchens in Baltimore and I can't say I've ever been disappointed. Thus is great farm/table Gastropub fare that rotates frequently. The beer list is not large, but quite good and the bartenders mix great classic drinks. Glad we live... More

Great find for a Friday evening after a couple stressful work days! We all had gourmet burgers and they were mouth-watering! Added Old Bay fries to mine. Also enjoyed the Skape Goat lager, local brew. Servers were totally pleasant and happy to make us comfortable! Really enjoyed this neighborhood establishment!

Delicious food from a creative menu. The place is tiny though and it fills up FAST so either get there 5 minutes after they open or be prepared to wait a long time in the packed bar for a table.

Neighborhood place with more extensive and interesting menu than most (seasonally adjusted). Might try coming early if bringing children.

When you go to a restaurant you expect to be treated a certain way. These people act like they're doing you a favor by allowing you in their presence. Awful service, don't waste your money.

Driving towards downtown on Harford Road you go through quite a few microcosms of society. When among it appears Hamilton Tavern. Kind notes of where not to park on the front door opens to a velvet curtain to keep the A/C in. The bar is small but very nice with great liquor selections, the decor is industrial from a bygone...

This is a tale of two burgers. Been to the Hamilton Tavern before, liked their burger and beer and onion rings. Stopped in for a burger on a Tuesday evening. Had second thoughts because of the neighborhood. Half boarded up, tough crowd yelling at each other on the street. Not Baltimore renaissance. Get inside and over half the tables are... More
