We eat here regularly! Reason being...it is the most consistently delicious restaurant in downtown Auburn. I have tried many things on the menu, but I always come back to one of two things..catfish and crawfish or chicken provencal! You will not be disappointed in the food or the service! All is top notch!!!!

The food was excellent, the service was fast, the price was okay. It is a block from Toomer's corner which provides many stores to shop while you wait on a seat. They will call your cell when your table becomes available. The steak was fabulous!

My significant other and I dined here on Valentines Day and as expected the wait time was a little long but we were seated in half the time quoted. For a restaurant that doesn't take reservations I was very pleased by the timeliness of the service. Our server (Dani) was terrific and was very happy to serve us amidst the... More

We were in Auburn for the evening and decided to try Hamilton's for dinner. Parking is pretty much a big hassle!! There are a few spots on the street and a parking lot area just off Gay Street. It's just a busy area that needs a larger parking deck...just be prepared to walk at least a block which isn't bad... More

This restaurant is a block from Toomers corner. It is a very quaint restaurant. We love to visit every time we go to. They have a full bar that you can sit at too.

Good food and nice ambiance. I have been here a number of times and never been disappointed. Had a wonderful fish of the day (halibut) after a great starter of fried green tomatoes.

This place is quite good! I like it - not as much as The Hound or The Depot here in town - but it's got reliably good food. Their short ribs are delicious. The atmosphere is not casual, yet somehow not fancy, either...but it's good! We've had reliably good service and food each time we've been.

We ended up stuck in Auburn overnight after our drive was cut short by some crazy weather. Looking for something other than chain restaurants we ended up at Hamiltons and am so glad we did. The menu sounds basic but don't be fooled. The mahi sandwich was substantial, fresh and perfectly cooked. The healthy sides were great especially the spinach.... More

I frequent Auburn very often, but for some reason I had never gone to Hamilton's. From the time we walked in until we walked out of the door the staff were all very friendly. The drinks we had to start were mixed perfectly. We had the fried green tomatoes for our app and they were out of this world!! Our... More

Food is not bad, the lobster bisque was delightful with lunch. Ate dinner there the first night I was in town, a little princely for the portion size.
