Think of this as much nicer version of T.G.I. Friday’s: well-suited for families, with a something-for-everyone menu of sandwiches, salads, burgers, flatbread pizza and entrees, all of which are consistently high quality. This place gets pretty busy with the lunch work crowd so if you’re headed here midday, skip the ho hum dining room and make a reservation for its outdoor balcony, which overlooks Hamilton Harbour. The “P.O.” (as it’s called locally) is also a hopping after-dark venue—when the dinner hour is done, the tables and chairs are pushed to the side and live bands and/or DJs take over from Tuesday through Saturday.
