Very good food, lunch or dinner. Variety of choices, very nicely flavored and prepared. Neat old building with history in downtown Hamilton. Very friendly staff and owner. Nice place to take your time with a meal and talk with friends. Parking can be challenge at lunch, on the street or around the block,, but it is worth the walk if... More

My husband, two teenaged sons and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. We are restauranteurs as well and can be rather difficult to impress. We were not disappointed! Service, food and atmosphere were all lovely. Typically when our family dines out there is at least one 'miss' among our meal selections. We were delighted that everything we chose, from the loaded... More

I really enjoyed my lunch here. I was alone and was sat immediately. I thought the décor/atmosphere was perfect for a place like this. The food was fantastic. I had their black bean chili as an appetizer and it was really good. Not overly bold, but a perfect mixture of flavor and heat. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and... More

Caesar salad with chicken that was tasty, tender, moist. Plenty to eat with a side of bread. Not a salad that had you wishing you ordered more. And I thank them for not overly dressing the lettuce. Enough to flavor. And so yes, it is possible to eat mostly veggies in a big meat eater state!

We both had the 4 oz steaks itch wasabi cream, with vegetable (2 stalks of asparagus), and garlic mashed potatoes. It was heavenly! You just wanted to eat it slowly and savor. I had creme brûlée for dessert, which was nice, too. The only one weird thing - there were two of us, and they brought out a little plate... More

We were on an adventure to Hamilton from our wee village in NW Montana. I had culled TripAdvisor recommended lunch spots down to 2, and Spice of Life was not on the short list. But we stopped at the bakery next door, then peeked in the restaurant and checked out the menu....on a hunch, we decided the stay for lunch.... More

Been going to the spice since it opened. Always delicious and fresh. Owner is a chef and works in the kitchen. Great staff. Might be a wait for a table depending on the night. Show up early! Worth the wait!
