Hamilton's Urban Steakhouse & Bourbon Bar

We are huge fans of PW Pizza's Beer Dinner series (we're there every month) and had already visited Charleville Brewery right before they made it smaller and created Hamilton's Urban Steakhouse.

With the recent opening of the Rhone Rum Bar and 21st Street Brewers Bar, I didn't think the Hamilton's needed to add the "Bourbon" part at the end of the name, but there is quite a bit of it in the menu!

This was a great way to end the year - with a restaurant that totally met our high expectations. (Even our foodie friends were pleased!) The only thing short were the number of seats in the restaurant, and the bar area was full the whole time we were there. Be sure to make a reservation!

I had eaten a late lunch so I didn't have room to try any appetizers, soups, or salads, but the complimentary garlic bites were a nice treat and Jamie and Shannon enjoyed their wedge salad.

Let's be honest, we were there for the steaks! Everything was cooked perfectly.

Jamie and I played it safe by ordering a filet. You get to order two sides so wild mushrooms and mac and cheese were on my plate!

Patience ordered a Ribeye, adding two large scallops with the "surf and turf" option you can add to any steak! The Brussel Sprouts were a popular side at our table as well.

Shannon also chose a winner with the Osso Bucco. (No knife necessary!)

Cocktail and wine list were great too and why yes, we did try something from both of them.

Luckily, I stopped at the right time and took home plenty of leftovers because Patience always orders dessert.

The carrot cake was a little dry and could have used more icing.

But the Bourbon Bread Pudding was very moist and melt-in-your-mouth delicious.

I was afraid Patience would be up all night when she ordered a Bourbon Coffee with dessert: Old Grand-Dad, Brown Sugar Syrup, House-Made Pumpkin Whipped Cream and coffee.

Definitely put this on your list for the new year!
