My husband and I were wondering around downtown Champaign looking for breakfast. We were reading the menus posted at Hamilton Walker's just before they opened and the chef came out and started chatting with us. He mentioned the Breakfast Napoleon. I was sold we stayed and it was more delicious that he explained. I was so thrilled with this breakfast I cannot even tell you what my husband ordered. We have both decided this maybe out new Sunday breakfast spot. It does not hurt they have $10 bottomless Bloody Mary's and Mimosa's.

The shrimp cocktail is amazing as are the steaks. Our waiter was very attentive and we constantly had water refills. Restaurant is also kid friendly.

We enjoyed the restaurant and the food was good but not completely outstanding. The service was excellent even though there were a couple, probably new, assistant servers who tried to bring the entree while we were still eating our salads. There were some surprising missteps such as bringing our steak dinners without steak knives. We had to get the attention of a server to ask for steak knives. We arrived at 6:30, had a bottle of champagne for the four of us, and they were out of the steak special. The boneless ribeye was adequate. The side dishes were excellent and portions were very large. When we arrived the room was very loud with conversation to the point that is was difficult to hear our own conversations. Fortunately as people left the volume of noise decreased and we could comfortably converse. All things considered this is a very good restaurant.

This restaurant is right down town with a lot of other restaurants and bars, but got to say it is the best. We had the small cut of prime rib - cooked to perfection and tender. Also had cut, grilled Brussel sprouts. Drinks were fair sized.

We had an extended family dinner at Hamilton-Walker recently, and it was splendid. The steaks and salmon were great. One member of our party is a vegetarian, and she was thrilled at the numerous vegetable sides and salads on the menu – the restaurant even offers three sides for a reduced price. Appetizers were good – and I highly recommend the Baked Goat Cheese with Red Pepper Sauce – really good!

The restaurant offers a nice selection of wine, bourbon and cocktails. When a couple of us ordered mint juleps, we were impressed to learn that the restaurant grows its own mint! We were also pleasantly surprised to be dining on an evening when they offered $20 bottles of wine – we shared a Washington State Rieseling and a Pinot Noir – both good.

Service was excellent. We will be back.

Hi Lee! Dinner with family is always a nice way to spend the time and we're glad you stopped by. It gives us immense pleasure to see that everyone had a good time and had a great overall experience. Moreover, a lot of time was devoted to coming up with a list of wines, bourbon, and cocktails and we're happy that you liked it! We had a pleasure of serving you guys and hope you will allow us opportunities like this to serve you all in the future too.
