  • Don't get the Indian curried chicken salad. It's not good.
  • If you're here for lunch, try the vegetarian blue plate special. It is always fantastic (eclectic & gourmet, not your usual veggie fare), ever changing, and an excellent value.
  • Shrimp and grits is delish!
  • get the shrimp and grits!
  • Ive never had a bad meal here. Incredibly consistent quality.
  • A surprisingly good brunch
  • Had the braised chicken and it was delicious! Friend had the pork chops and said they were tasty. Expensive and service was a bit slow for a Tuesday night.
  • very limited Menu, food is OK to the taste.
  • Winter Menu Tasting Party
  • Today's vegetarian Blue Plate special is outstanding!
  • They are very good about accommodating food allergies. Just let them know in advance.
  • The Indian curry seems to be off the menu. We thoroughly enjoyed the Pasta entre and the shrimp either the lime/coconut rice in lieu if the grits - food allergy
  • Virginia Living - Best of Virginia '12 (Central Region): Best Place for a Power Lunch (1st Place)
  • The bartenders here are pretty cool.
  • Sit outside on a cool summer evening. That's the best way to experience Hamilton's.
  • The best top-shelf margarita in town. The crabcakes are a must on the menu.
  • Try the current lunch special with multiple food items bearing absurdly complicated names....what they meant to say was "it's Mediterranean".
