Hart's Tavern: Great Burgers!
This is a typical pub atmosphere, furnished in dark woods with tables and booths available.
Favorite Dish: The French Onion Soup and Spinach Artichoke Dip, which I shared, was very good. But when my Chili Burger arrived---stand back!! It was overflowing with chili and melted cheddar cheese. I couldn't finish it, it was way too much. This is definitely a good, reliable, affordable place to eat while you're shopping in Peddler's Village.
Lambertville Station Restaurant: Eat at this former Train Station!
When living in New Jersey we visited Lambertville often, always stopping for lunch or dinner at The Lambertville Station. I loved the warm wood floors and touch of brass throughout the building! The fact that it's in a 19th century renovated train station made it unique!
Large windows made people watching easy and abandoned train tracks were always fascinating to the grandchildren! Often one of the adults would take the kids to run around along the rails, while the rest of the adults were inside waiting to be served. No antsy kids this way!
Whether you chose the elegant dining room on the second level or the more casual dining area near the entrance, you'll not be disappointed! The meal always begins with a bread assortment--be sure to try the coconut bread, which is delicious. Bon Appetite Magazine voted it one of the best restaurants in NJ!
A luncheon entree selection is Chicken-Walnut Salad ($9.99) with breast of chicken and walnuts, tossed in the restaurant's signature honey-mustard dressing and served with fresh fruit or a meaty Station Burger ($8.99) containing 8 oz. certified Black Angus ground beef with lettuce, tomato and onion with choice of toppings.
For dinner you might be enticed by the Maple-Mustard Salmon ($19.99) which is a pan-seared salmon fillet topped with a wholegrain mustard-maple scented glaze, served with wild rice pilaf and seasonal vegetables.
Another wonderful choice might be the Filet Mignon ($26.99) 10 oz. center cut filet topped with a wild mushroom medley, frizzled onions and classic demi-glace, served with roasted garlic-mashed potatoes.
Although we've never lodged here, there is an Inn behind the restaurant where the Riverside ballroom is located.
Hours are Mon-Sat. 11:30 am-3pm for lunch; Sun.-Thurs. 4pm-9:30 pm and Fri.-Sat. 4pm-11pm. The Sunset Menu: Mon.-Fri. 4pm-6:30pm; Sunday Brunch: 10:30am-3:00 pm or Sunday Buffet at the Riverside Ballroom 10:00 am-3:00 pm
Favorite Dish: Everything we've had here has been wonderful!

The Inn of the Hawke: Delightful restaurant off the beaten track!
Located off the beaten track in Lambertville, this informal neighborhood restaurant offers both relaxing garden patio dining, and cozy fireside dining options. The full service pub serves a dozen excellent choices of beer on tap and offers twenty-five more in bottles. With a new food menu offered weekly and the Old English atmosphere of the pub, locals and tourists alike can't get enough of this place! Open daily. Lunch, dinner, late night menu.
Favorite Dish: The Special Wings! The menu is changed weekly and the chef is always creating new sauces for the Inn of the Hawkes "special wings". I had the Thai Peanut Sauce Wings. I enjoyed them at the bar and liked them so much I ordered some to go, so I could take them home to my boyfriend!

Inn of the Hawke: Best in the Fall for the Fireplace
This is a cozy place to stop especially when parked in front of the real wood burning fireplace. Stick to the basic Burger & Soup. The entrees leave much to be desired since they appear to have directly fallen off the Sysco Truck with minimal intervention from the chef. Service varies and the waitstaff themselves run the gamut from congenial to downright snotty
Favorite Dish: It wasn't the food
It's the fireplace on a cool fall day after a cruise along the Delaware

Hamilton Grill Room: Great Spot
Tucked away in an alley this hard to find place is better than searching for Waldo. Seating both inside with it's open air kitchen or on the patio during warmer weather is a relaxing treat for both the eyes and the palate. The changing seasonal menu always offers an array of tasty selections. After viewing the current menu a perfect pairing of wine can readily be made just across the alleyway. The best time to visit is during the week when the weekend tourist crowds thin. Call ahead for reservations for a weekend evening
Favorite Dish: Just about everything they have to offer

The Lambertville Station: Interesting Menu!
This restaurant is a restored train station which rests on the banks of the Delaware River. The food is excellent and the menu has some interesting dishes!! I was tempted to try the ostrich steak, but I wasn't that hungry, so I went for the veal and crab entree, not knowing the amount of food I was in for. It was phenomenal!! Two huge pieces of veal in a garlic cream sauce with piles of lump crabmeat everywhere! It took me 45 minutes to eat. I also tasted the Buffalo T-Bone (my husband's entree), which was covered with peppercorns and was very good as well. Giant portions!
Favorite Dish: I tedn to think that you can't go wrong here---try the Alligator Chili as an appetizer.
