I have been going to Hamilton Tavern for over 5 years. It was always my favorite hometown pub. I had noticed slight changes over the last year with staff, food and drinks. But last weeks visit was unfortunately the last for me. It started off with the drink, I order a margarita and the server brought back a horrendous tasting... More

Their Crosstown Burger is truly one of the best in Baltimore, but we've never been disappointed by any of the dishes. My husband's go to is the Ultimate Chicken Sandwich and we always start off with the fried pickles. Their... 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.
