    Had a wonderful experience at Hamiltons. They did run out of the special but the shrimp and grits was fantastic.

    Delicious food highlighting the delicious, fresh ingredients and the skill of the chef. My husband and I had the honeydew coup which was sort of like a honeydew gazpacho—sweet, a little spicy, a little tangy. I had my mind on the blue plate special when we reserved, but they had a mushroom-stuffed rainbow trout special that won out. It was delicious, seasoned to perfection and cooked flawlessly. My husband had halibut that was also outstanding. The trio of granitas for dessert was fine—nothing remarkable—though honestly neither of us was really hungry at that point. If I’m ever back in CVille, I’d definitely come back.

    We always have an excellent dining experience at Hamilton’s, whether for lunch or for dinner. This evening’s special, the mushroom & Parmesan stuffed rainbow trout with squash & zucchini vermicelli noodles, was truly exceptional. Perfect for a hot summer night!

    Generally, the soups are wonderful. Even a cup is worth the experience. Salads are good and dish is prepared especially well.
