Great place with local special Hochee dog. My husbands family is from the area and we ordered the shakes, hotchee dogs and burgers. All of the food was great. My cheeseburger was cooked just right, not a huge bun, crisp fresh lettuce with a ripe red tomato. The creamed potato soup was delish! Our boys loved the special Hotchee dog.... More

We stopped at Hamilton's for the first time just before lunch on a Saturday and it was so crowded we were lucky to get an open table. We both ordered an omelet, mine a tomato and cheese and my sister a spinach and feta. Both were promptly and perfectly prepared and service was exceptional even though they were packed! Cash...

Good and fast service, very clean. The meal was a bit tasteless but a little better than average. The salad was fresh.

I go here when I can and I live in California. The menu is extensive and the prices can't be beat and the food is-well-great.

This is high quality food with great service. Conversation was fun and honest. I really like this place and it appears to be a longstanding popular place with local patrons galore. Clean, tasty, friendly. Greek omelet...perfect.

The Hamilton is a favorite with all the locals, however it's not one of my favorites. The food is standard with few surprises and I find it a bit heavy. Prices are fair. I will say again, it is a standard local favorite

Thank militarylife
