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.

This place is over priced, food was terrible and not to description of menu. Menu describes burger as 8oz (1/2 lb) or did I miss the point (.8 oz) You get a bigger piece of meat on a whopper. Steak ($30) was dry (Med) and no flavor. Appetizer (shrimp) was good, And back to the description, this was no where... More

When we visit our boys at Auburn University we always go to Hamilton's. The filet is amazing and the drinks are good too! It is only two blocks from Auburn University, Toomers Corner

Went in for lunch as we have heard great things about the place. It was an away football game for Auburn so it was not crowded at all. Had the salmon sandwich which was delicious. They had several football games on the numerous TV sets around the bar. good seating and good service. Outdoor seating is also available as well... More

The Lobster Bisque is great; I wanted to take a gallon home with me. The fried chicken sandwich was awesome. This is a must do when in Auburn (lunch or dinner).

They have lots of good dishes in a nice cozy environment. It is an easy walk to any place in downtown Auburn.
