Restaurant Review

Located near Hamilton Park, The Hamilton Inn is a Jersey City neighborhood gem, a popular spot with locals for brunch, lunch and dinner.

The restaurant named after Alexander Hamilton has been restored to its original turn-of-the-century pub like ambiance.

The interior is casually elegant with exposed brick, dark, walnut stained bar, floors and tables ceiling fans, and walls adorned with wine barrel case sides, mirrors, vintage pictures and curios.

It has a real throw back vibe --- there are no large TV's at the bar.

The food is creatively prepared using fresh ingredients with grass fed , organic burgers and steaks.

They offer an excellent brunch, best in the Jersey City area.

Free parking is available @ 12th & Jersey Avenue

They are child friendly with a kids menu

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
