A few night ago, my sister and I met up with our cousins for dinner in Hamilton, Ontario. We often meet in Hamilton because it’s sort of the halfway point between us and them, and also because Hamilton has a far better selection of restaurants than Brantford does.
My cousin picked out a place called Electric Diner on George Street. None of us had been to Electric Diner prior to us meeting there, but based on reviews and what we saw pertaining to the place online, we figured it would be a good place to try.
Electric Diner has a decent menu in terms of selection, offering appetizers, salads, soup, hamburgers and sandwiches. They also have some super funky cocktails which my cousins tried and said were great.
I opted for a tomato soup to start which was served with some of the tastiest bread to ever pass my lips, and then followed up with their cheeseburger fries. I wasn’t entirely sure to except regarding my main course, but I was pleasantly surprised; it was essentially a deconstructed cheeseburger served over fries. My sister got the poutine, and my cousins had a salad and the reuben sandwich.
All of us really enjoyed our food, although we found the portions to be a wee bit small. The prices are very affordable, and the atmosphere of this restaurant is a mix between a modern vibe and the old school diner feel. It has a lovely patio, though we sat upstairs.
The restaurant itself isn’t overly large, so it’s likely best to book a reservation as the place was packed. Our server was lovely, warm and professional, and overall, we had a really nice time.
I would absolutely recommend Electric Diner to anyone who enjoys a casual, hearty meal, and I plan on going back again in the near future.
