Love Phyl's Family Restaurant

We love this restaurant....have eaten here atleast 1/2 dozen times in the last year. They may have been having growing pains in 2010, but must've improved over time because we have never had a problem with the food or service at this lovely restaurant in all of 2011. Have had breakfast, lunch and supper here and all meals have been delicious and I'm a picky eater. The burgers are really good, the chicken fingers and fries are delicious, BLT sandwiches are great and the Western sandwiches made with 3 eggs are huge. This is a fabulous local family all day restaurant and hope it stays here forever!!! Way to go Phyl.

Rumak Eatery and Bar -- you should check it out.

Rumak Eatery and Bar (which I'm going to call Rumak's from now on) is a casual sports bar kind-of-place. The place is clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly and accommodating, and the prices are good. I was there on a Wednesday which was 1/2 price wings and $4.50 pints, so I was impressed. Their prices are good even on regular nights. If you like Polish food (perogies, goulash, potato pancakes) then you you should visit. They even serve Polish beer, along with a selection of domestics (bottles and on tap). I've been there twice and will definitely go back. You should check their hours out before you go.

Good Pizza, Amazing Value

The pizza there is okay. I don't know what the other guy is talking about. The sauce is very good, and the toppings are good, although the dough is a little lacking. It is fresh, I saw the guy roll it himself. The delivery guy was nice too, although the lady at the counter looked like she was miserable. Anyway, you can get any size pizza (including XL) with 4 toppings, and 2 pops for like $15. Although, it comes to $17 even with delivery. Also, you can walk in and get an extra large pizza for 7.50! Its insane! Anyway, solid pizza, really good for the money.

A disappointment
By cara of Hamilton On (1 Review)

My husband & I were there on a Saturday in Oct. The restaurant is beautiful, but the food service was horrendous. We lucked out & got the ONLY smiling waitress there who brought our menus and coffee just seconds after we sat down. A definite FIRST for us! We waited 55 minutes (the clock was right in front of us enroute to the kitchen.) for a simple BREAKFAST! The sausages were undercooked, the homefries raw and cold and the soft poached eggs were medium to hard, the toast was cold. The ONLY thing that kept us from leaving was the personality of the waitress who apologized frequently, kept the coffee coming and whose sense of humour & jokes kept us entertained. Ok, maybe a bad day in the kitchen. We went back to try it a second time Sunday Nov. 14. The food was a smidgen better but took 45 min. to arrive. At least the homefries were cooked and the over easy eggs were done right. The toast was still cold, the bacon almost raw. The big disappointment was the waitress. Our previous smiling waitress could not be found. No smiles, no coffee without begging and no sense of humor this time around. We won't be back.

Good place for Breakfast

Having only dined here once, I can't speak for any other menu items but the all-day breakfast. The waitress was courteous and attentive. I chose the peameal-bacon breakfast with eggs over medium with coffee. The food was delivered promptly, hot, and nicely laid out on the plate. The bacon and eggs couldn't be faulted, nor could the home-fries, Texas toast or orange-slice garnish. Refills of coffee were provided without request. I'll be bringing my girlfriend here for the all-day breakfast later this week. We have a common weakness for good food which is well presented, and good table service.
I'd have no problem recommending Phyl's to my friends of family.

Worst Place in Hamilton
By love_food of Hamilton On (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, October 16, 2010 - 10:24am [Dine in]

This restaurant is the worst in Hamilton. I had the fish and chips and it tasted like the fish had freezer burn and the fries were soggy. My boyfriend had the surf and turf and he couldn't even eat it because it tasted putrid. The steak was rubbery and the surf well it was frozen popcorn chicken. What kind of home cooking place is this?!! The menu says the gravy is suppose to be home-made so I asked what the ingredients were in it and they gave my a list of ingredients for a packaged beef gravy mix. I was sitting near the kitchen area so I could see in where my food was being prepared and i was flabbergasted when i saw them put the potatoes from a container into a bowl then into the microwave, the same was done with the vegetables and gravy. I don't know why but I decided to stay for desert, blueberry pie it was. So the lady gets the pie out of the fridge behind the bar, which by the was was one that you get from your local grocery store for $5 frozen, and takes it to the kitchen and puts it in the microwave. When I saw that I refused to eat it, I'm not paying $5 for a piece of frozen grocery store pie. So here it is never eat there its pure garbage.

Impressed on the initial and returning visits, Owner and staff very accommodating and friendly. Orders were prepared exactly as ordered and the price for the portions was excellent. Fantastic size on the Wings and very tasty. Real sports bar atmosphere and seating was no problem.

Recommend to visit Fat Boys if you're looking for good beverages and quick eats.

Never Again!!
By Pizza Lover of Hamilton On (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, August 9, 2010 - 12:21am [Dine in]

I'm going to start off with the people that work at this place don't care about there job or how people will view there place if nothing was presented well.Their pizza is like eating cardboard with toppings on it, I asked for double cheese pizza with ground beef and I got the meat but very very little cheese. The other pizza was suppose to be bacon bits,pepperoni and ham. Instead of bacon bits we got real bacon, which what looked to be bacon scraps there was more fat on the pizza then anything else. The only thing that was ok to eat was the wings, well also the garlic bread but I think trained monkeys could put some garlic spread on bread without any problems. Also pizza is always cut by the workers not by us the customers. I never went inside this place so not sure what it looks like, but the guy who delivered to me was a nice guy. I'm never going to this place again, so to people who loves pizza like me don't go here no matter how much you want pizza.

Thanks for taking my money,
Pizza Lover

I go back once a month with friends because I love it so much.

Their Specials really are special! The Jack Daniels Burger is a must try, the quality, service and price make this a great value for a night out with friends.

I have tried many Hamilton area pub style restaurants, this is by far my favorite!!!

Initially I tried their British style meat pie, if a pub can do a good one, then I know they are excellent. Their meals are made fresh on the premises, something I insist on when I go out to eat.

A big let down
By eyeatehere of Hamilton On (1 Review)

The food tasted like it was precooked and then reheated, leaving the chicken balls hard as rock and the rice, crispy and dry.
Also...i wasn't to impressed with the fact that when the kitchen door flung open, i could see some staff sitting on the food prep. table. Not exactly a glowing endorsemant. I give this place a half star.
