    Took a good friend out for lunch our first time there. 5 Stars across the board . Our server allowed us the time to chat for a few minutes before taking our drink orders . The drinks arrived very quickly . Once again our server allowed us to settle in before taking our food order . We ordered Fish and Chips and the house made Meatloaf . Our meals arrived quickly and were piping hot . The portions were huge. We both agreed that it was very tasty. All in all one of the best experiences I’ve had at a pub My only regret is that I can’t remember our servers name as he certainly made the experience top shelf .

    We really enjoyed sitting in the sunlit "round" room. Food was very good with the exception of the soup which my friend felt was bland. Waiter was friendly and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our time.

    My friend said her Cobb salad was great. My shrimp stir fry was good but there was WAY too much sauce on it. I had to leave most of the noodles as it was swimming in sauce. Sauce on the side would have been better for me for sure. Wasn't busy at all so it was nice and quiet and we were all spaced out nicely.

    Great Wednesday night deal of 50% of bottle of wine. Lamb burger was a hit with one of my dining partners. Overall good value. My fish tacos and guinness battered shrimp were good but not outstanding. Still I would go back for the location, the ambience and that there was something for everyone on the menu.

    Great place for a low key hangout with friends. The food is pretty good for pub fare and the noise level and crowd is pretty minimal for a Friday evening. If you do go, make reservations and try to get seating by the window as the other seats are close to the busy kitchen. The staff are super friendly and very accommodating. I definitely will come back and recommend to others.

    Awesome smart/casual restaurant on always buzzing Locke Street in Hamilton. The Squire has a wonderful outdoor patio, a bar with low-lighting, and an indoor dining room plus a special 'goldfish bowl' separate dining area -- all to suit customers' various needs. The food is smart/casual and well prepared. My daughter loved her fish tacos and I gobbled down my entrée too. The staff was friendly and super efficient, every approach was well timed, just when you want your waiter to show up! Drinks seemed a tad pricey, but the selection is good. All in all, a great place for a cut-above-ordinary meal.

    The first time that we have not been totally satisfied. The fish tacos were difficult To eat because there was too much sauce that dripped all over! Otherwise, up to the standards that we have expected.

    The food and ambience was great. Unfortunately the service was not to what was expected based on past experience. Our waiter had an off night …. forgot about us tucked away on the solarium style section overlooking the patio. We could see him engaging with the outdoor tables but he was very slow to take our drink orders , apologized and brought drinks and then made us wait again before he returned to take our dinner order. We will be back as we feel this was atypical and not a reflection of the experiences we have had previously at The Squire.
