Absolutely stunning service and food. Pricing and views are also terrific. I enjoyed a lovely night out looking over the sunset on a gorgeous and beguiling night with my family, thank you Hamilton’s!! I will always cherish this memory dearly to my heart, my relatives will never forget these benevolent staff and prices. So once again I say THANK YOU, I am crying tears of happiness right now 😢

Went here for a wedding and were enchanted by the view and the dolphin show while we enjoyed a pre dinner drink. Dinner time came and the service was great and the calamari entree was sensational. Unfortunately the beef for main was way over cooked making it tough and in appealing. All in all the venue and service we’re great.

Possibly the best food in Forster. Hot tip: When people are enjoying their meal don’t usher them out the door and demand their table back. Stupidly we came back on a warm day and were placed next to the window, which did not open. Eating great food in a green house is no fun. Spend a little money on air conditioning…it’s summer, in Australia!

On the scout for a wedding Reception Venue, can’t say that we were overly impressed came in at 1:45PM on a Saturday in Jan 2018 about the same crowd in the restaurant as our wedding guests . Same order for both meals Hamilton’s Oyster and Seafood chowder.
Took almost an hour and a half to have served and was two completely different dishes.1 was too salty, the other looked like it was served in a rush and was full of sandy grit and seafood/crab shells.

SERVICE FROM MANAGEMENT AND CHEF – THE WORST I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED

I am just on my way back from what should have been a lovely night with my girlfriends on our holiday weekend away. Unfortunately we chose Hamilton Oyster for our dinner choice. The food was actually really good – we had steak, the baby barramundi and an antipasto platter. I however had the lobster special which came with salad and potato. It would have been delicious had there not been a giant handful of pink rock salt on my plate and underneath the lobster. Naturally I want to eat my lobster with the salad and potato so I moved the massive pile of salt to the side of the board, however I still had a huge amount under the rest of the food. I ate some of the lobster no problem but after getting the top layer of salad I was then picking it from the bottom of the board. All I could taste was salt and was constantly finding myself crunching rocks of salt along with my dinner. I physically couldn’t bare the taste any more so I explained to one of the lovely waitresses and she apologised and took it back to the kitchen. The tall blonde manager then came out and immediately there was an attitude and acting like it was my fault there was salt in my food…not a great reaction to a customer making a complaint. Anyway she advised she would speak to the chef and make another. 10 minutes later she came back and said it would be 5 minutes. 15 minutes later my friends are cold and having finished their meals 20 minutes ago we are all very annoyed. I went to the bar to ask for my money back and was met with the same woman explaining that the chef had just made another and that they had made 2 lobsters now. I advised that unfortunately I have waited too long and am really annoyed and would rather go home than eat any more of their salty food and have my friends wait even longer to leave. I was met with a very argumentative attitude and with her saying I could not have my money back. She then got the chef out to the bar to fight her battle where he then said again that he has made 2 lobsters and that would go to waste. I am sorry but that is not my problem. I was extremely diplomatic and polite and all I wanted was my $39 back and to go home. His argument was that no one else had made a complaint. I certainly would not send food back unless it was literally physically impossible to eat. I was met with the worst attitude and a slamming side door to the bar where he then proceeded to storm out from behind the bar. I have never encountered such bad customer service at an establishment in my entire life. From the moment I sent the food back I was in the wrong. The food is good (bar the salty dish of lobster), but the sheer horrendous behaviour and treatment I had to succumb to was frankly disgusting. Please choose somewhere else for your night out. I left extremely upset and offended and very hungry. To finish – I have NEVER written a bad review of a restaurant before, so this is my first and hopefully my last. AVOID.
