The Hamilton Restaurant & Bar
I made a reservation based on the online menu and ratings. Upon our arrival we were greeted immediately and seated. We waited quite a while for our waitress, but with the current climate of employee shortages it was not her fault and it didn’t take from our experience. She did a great job. When we went to order food and drinks the menu was different. There was no filet mignon. On the house menu and specials the menu many of the selections were unavailable. My guests also tried to order cocktails that they couldn’t get. The crab cakes were very good, two of us ordered the steak that replaced the filet. It was tender however it had no flavor. The bread that was served was warm and fresh. It was good. Also one of us had the lamb that was also good. It was a 50/50. Being a local business person to be fair I would give this place another try. I had taken a few investors here. It was disappointing that they could not order what they wanted. Maybe it was just not a great day.
Hi Colleen, Sorry your experience dining with us did not live up to your expectations. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the crab cakes and lamb! The Piedmontese steak is generally more flavorful than a fillet. We make menu changes constantly due to supply issues and seasonal menu changes. Unfortunately our website provider does not make the changes fast enough. Going forward, we change our menu frequently and seasonally. We will continue to work diligently to keep our online menus updated.
Food is definitely overpriced. Two star atmosphere, no ambiance, terrible food presentation. Server never gave her name and seemed to be annoyed she had to interrupt her bartending to wait tables. Only one person at the bar, by the way. Will not go back.
Hi we are sorry your experience dining with us was not up to your expectations.
Place was clean . Staff was attentive as possible I’m sure they were short handed like most places but they did a good job, had the sea bass was WATER logged and tasteless besides the pistachios that it was encrusted in, we had the tuna nachos for
Appetizer that was good , my kettle one martini wasn’t kettle one. So overall was disappointed .
Dinner at The Hamilton in Saylorsburg last night with good friends. The Seabass was outstanding one of the best I’ve ever had, my husband had the hanger steak and he would go back just for that. Hibiscus Margarita was great. All in all recommend this local small business to anyone! Loved it!!
Thank you for the review Kathie. We are happy you enjoyed your dining experience with us and look forward to serving you again.
This was our first timing dining at the Hamilton. The food, particularly the seabass, crab cakes and lamb were excellent. Outstanding service as well.. We will definitely be dining there in the future.
Thank you for the review Thomas ! We are happy you enjoyed your dining experience here at The Hamilton where we take great pride in our food and service. We look forward to serving you again.
Delicious food .
Price is good
Service is excellent
Good Monday night pub food. Chef Ethan does a very good job
We’ve eaten here many times, inside, takeout. Food is always on point.
Great beer, wine selection. First rate bar/cocktails. Food and beverages all very inventive without being ridiculous. Leisurely and unrushed experience. Staff is adjusting to being busier now that restrictions have been eased, but still very attentive.
Kelly and Lily are both wonderful.
Food excellent as usual! Service was great!
The previous time was better
Over priced and paired choices of sides was odd. Not that good.
Hi, Thank you for giving us a try! We are sorry to not be up to your expectations.
The Hamilton is a welcome respite from the typical burger/pizza/wings restaurants you find in The Poconos. The food was outstanding and the portions were huge (perhaps too big.) We loved the tuna nachos and the scallops on the risotto were perfectly cooked Service was fantastic. Our waitress Eliza had a smile on her face the entire time and was very enthusiastic. We hope to return during our next trip to the area.
Hi, thank you for giving us a try. We are so happy you enjoyed your experience dining with us. We look forward to serving you again!
Outstanding find, ambiance and atmosphere is rustic but romantic. Service was fantastic and the food was out of this world. I will definitely be back!
Hi Anthony, thank you for giving us a try. We are very happy you enjoyed your experience dining with us and look forward to serving you again!
This is a cute restaurant tucked away in a country road. Some of the food(ie more traditional dishes ) were quite tasty but I was disappointed by the lobster risotto. The lobster was not fresh and the risotto had no creamy quality so just a bust. Our waitress was lovely and the staff seemed to be friendly with everyone.
I would go back but I would not order anything but traditional American fare.
Very good food
Everything was perfect, best kept secret in Saylorburg.
We were in the area celebrating our friends anniversary, and had a sudden change of plans for dinner. Hopped on Opentable and we were able to get a table for dinner. So glad our travels brought us here!! Amazing service and delicious food and drinks!!! I had the steak of the day which was a perfectly cooked filet with melted blue cheese, and my husband had the smoked duck breast which was equally as yummy. Had the chocolate truffle dessert to-go (because we had a bit of a drive ahead of us) and it was delicious, completely devoured it in the car.
First time there we will be going back food service and price were excellent
Great food & service .. would like to see more food
Wonderful service and the food was fabulous.
Always amazing food and great atmosphere. The ahi tuna nachos are incredible. Happy they are back on the menu.
My first time there, but will not be my last!
The service, food and drinks were outstanding!!
I ordered the surf and turf. The filet came out just a little undercooked to my liking.
The chef came out and apologized and graciously took it back to the kitchen to cook it a little more.
Not only did it come out cooked perfectly, but was accompanied with lobster claw meat and roasted vegetables!
The Hamilton is my new go to place while in the Saylorsburg area!!
Amazing food & service . I would recommend to all my friends
Love this gem in Saylorsburg . My favorite meal is the Chilean Sea bass.
Unfortunately we were seated at the same time as a table of 17 people. As a result, the service suffered greatly. We received our appetizers after our entrees were served and drinks from the bar were slow to arrive at the table. Our entree was served hot, and the food was excellent, however the expectation of a smooth Thanksgiving dinner served as described on the menu was not achieved. The chef did come to the table and offered his apologies and only charged us for 2 rather than 3 dinners. As this was not the normal experience we have had in the past when dining here, we will continue to patronize the establishment in the hopes that we will not have the same type of service.
Very good food, interesting menu, well-spaced tables
The food and service is amazing. The Ahi tuna nachos are an explosion of flavor in your mouth.
Dinner was Excellent!! I recommend the Seafood Risotto and the Lamb 1/2 rack!!
Our waiter (lily ann/Lilian) was very attentive and knowledgeable! We was only in a town for a few and enjoyed discovering this place!
We visited on a Saturday evening during COVID-19. The restaurant was fairly full, mostly older people. The waitress, who looked about 15, messed up our order — didn’t put in the appetizers, and then when we asked after 40 minutes about where our food was, she barely apologized and said that our entrees are almost ready and we can have more bread in the meantime. Seriously?! It took the entrees another 10 minutes at least, by that point we were hungry and cranky. My short ribs were delicious but small. My daughter’s fillet was burnt on the outside and bitter. My husband’s lamb shank was good. When we commented on the fillet bring pretty bad she again didn’t say much... the “soufflé” is just you’d old hot chocolate cake, not even molten inside.
Overall very disappointing.
First, it was a rainy, cold night that I went to this restaurant. My wife and I came to the Poconos to celebrate my birthday- 10/16, we stayed in Lake Harmony but I found this restaurant on Open Table. This restaurant was located in Saylorsburg off of a lake and upon arrival lowered expectation due to rural setting - keep in mind we were from the NYC Area. We were quickly greeted by the host who sat us immediately at a socially distanced table- greatly appreciated. The food is superior and pleasantly delicious, I had chilean sea bass and my wife had bacon wrapped chicken. My fish was well cooked and had a good balance of moistness and taste. Also I had the pork belly appetizer which was tasty as well. The chocolate flavored dessert was impressive but not too rich in flavor. Both my wife and I shared dessert and we enjoyed together. I would definitely recommend and plan to return on my next visit to the poconos.
Excellent food and service. Great atmosphere! Highly recommend!
Good food nice menu raspberry jalapeño margaritas are great!
To say the service was terrible is an understatement. We kept having to remind the waitress that we needed water, or she would only fill 2 glasses leaving 2 empty. When we ordered drinks, she came back twice asking again what we wanted. We ordered appetizers and after getting the waitress's attention, reminded her we still needed to place our meal order (an hour later).
Large number of menu selections. Enjoyed having a large number of specials to choose from. Would like to see roasted baby brussels sprouts as an appetizer. The beef filet in the beef wellington was tender, flavorful, and well prepared. Soft shell crab appetizer was a pleasant surprise.
Ethan the winery and chef can out an dpoke with us. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere and that we could dine outside. It was relaxed and enjoyable. We will return and found the qysliry very high.
A very good choice in the pick is.
There was a party of 6-8 people having a good time. So it was a little noisy. Our waitress was obviously new to the skill, but she got our drinks and the food order correct!!
Great menu. Expertly prepared and presented. It is fine dining in a casual atmosphere.
The food and service is fabulous. The margaritas are also fabulous! The menu is small however the do offer pub fare and entree’s so there’s a little something for everyone. We loved it!
The food was amazing! I had the pork and it was so tender it melted in your mouth! My husband had the stuffed chicken which online said crab but was mozzarella when we got there. Still delicious. They had not updated their online menu. Prices were a dollar or so more expensive when we got there than the previous menu. A glass of wine was $9 instead of $8. Overall a bit pricey but the food was really good. Would go back for a special occasion.
