A recent visit to Hamilton prompted my Mom and her hubby to want to take me out for dinner. This being their favourite place, I had no qualms and accepted the invitation.
When we arrived the place only had a couple taken, and within 20-30 minutes, it was full and people could not get a table. My advice is to arrive early to avoid not getting a seat.
It is a very small and quaint place. Low lit atmosphere is provided by caldlelit tables and dark walls and seats. The bar has some lighting too which helps shed light on the place.
We were served forthwith, by some very friendly young ladies. Our drinks arrived immediately. We chatted and took a while before ordering food.
My Mom ordered Rum Chicken, I the Burger and Fries, Greg the wings.
Everything arrived promptly, given how busy the place was.
The burger was good. A freshly made patty that is a good portion and seasoned well is what always impresses me the most, and this is what I got. It came with standard condiments, but that is all I was looking for. The fries were home made style and perfectly crispy. Portions were good.
Everyone else was happy with their meals and my Mom ordered the pecan pie, which was also delicious. Service remained prompt and attentive throughout.
Overall, I'd go back.it is not a place to go for a quiet drink, but they do not purport that either. The menu does seem to be suffering from an identity crisis what with the casual/almost fine dining options, but then also having standard pub grub. Something for everyone I guess.
