We have dined here several times. The atmosphere is low key simple but nice. Food is alway good. Because it is hidden off Algonquin Road it is rarely real busy. I always like their pot roast especially! Check it out.

Arrived at the hotel late after travel delays, so just wanted to get a bite to eat - was thrilled that the restaurant had a decent selection of wines and a very nice menu.

Went in with a reservation for dinner on a Saturday evening at 6pm. Walked in and a sign at host stand said check in at bar. We proceeded to bar and told them we wanted to dinner. We were told, "if you want to eat dinner you can go sit over in the corner; we are having a party in... More

Went here two nights in a row for a business conference in early July. We had two happy hour functions here, one of which they served food. It was good for hotel bar food and the bar tenders were friendly. Nothing special but if you're from out of town and wanna post up somewhere to drink give it a shot.

I attended a professional seminar recently-lots of people at my seminar and at other conferences. But at a community lunch break there was only 10 people in the hotel restaurant,i.e., The Birch River Grill---which was in close proximity to all the meetings. Half the time I was there, the lone waiter, bartender, and busboy were one and the same. He... More

I visited this location with business associates after a meeting at the Doubletree where the restaurant is located. The restaurant is very nice and the service was pleasant. The food, however, was inconsistent. Some dishes were over seasoned and others were bland. Overall it was an ok experience and about what I excepted.

Service was fine, but the breakfast was no better than free continental. Bacon was limp. Scrambled eggs were rather a mess. Value not very good here. Find another option.

They had a breakfast buffet but I ordered an omelet off the menu instead. It was very good. The staff did a good job keeping my coffee cup filled.
