The Great American Grille was very convenient if you are looking at not traveling outside of hotel. Food was good along with service and a good selection. Burgers, salads, wings, steak, etc.etc.

We stayed at the hotel for a night and decided to have breakfast before we left. We choose the Great American Grille for a smaller scaled breakfast. We had the buffet and it was really good. The service was a little lax but the food was good. If you are really hungry though, you should try the brunch. It is... More

The Holiday Inn doesn't provide a free breakfast so we decided to try their restaurant. Because of the holiday it wasn't a Sunday buffet but they did have their usual breakfast buffet. They had both plain and cheese scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, fried potatoes and fresh toast halves, prepared and on the buffet. Fruit salad and fresh whole fruit,... More

Just had dinner at this restaurant on a Friday evening. Prices are moderate, and the food is not bad. I enjoyed the chicken dinner I had which came with pesto potatoes and offered another additional side. Price of $11. as a dinner was worth it. My companion had fish and chips, at $14., and while he liked the fish, he... More

Ample food from scrambled eggs, eggs benedict, waffles, to bacon, sausage, ham, prime rib, chicken, shrimp, salad, soup, dessert bar and more. Pretty much everything was really good. The stuffed chicken was not tender, but stuffing part of it was good. Salmon with mango sauce was great, broccoli salad was tasty. Staff seemed to be constantly checking to make sure... More

We ate at the grill three of out four mornings while in town. The food was hot and tasted superb. We had 3 different waitresses and they were all equally great. Coffee was always full and we were checked up on often. This restaurant at the Holiday Inn hotel was top notch.

We love having Sunday brunch here. Recently, we did just that. What really made this wonderful brunch GREAT was our server Lottie. Great servers are few and far between in today's world. Lottie is one of two great servers here. The other being Nicole. We always ask for one or the other. They will bring not only their professionalism to... More

Decent burgers, close to a dozen beers on draft. When we arrived, an older lady was calling/instructing line dancing. Then (fairly decent) country band fired up and line dancing and Texas 2 Steppers owned the floor. We enjoyed our visit. Average because the food was average - not great but not bad.

Went here for breakfast due to it being in the hotel we were staying at. The food is what I would expect at a free breakfast in a hotel, however it was not free so it is disappointing.

The Great American Grille offers a casual atmosphere where you can enjoy a meal with a group or at a quiet table near our fireplace. We offer a variety of traditional American dishes, but prepare them with a unique twist that we are sure you will enjoy. We also offer a Breakfast Buffet daily and a Prime Rib Buffet on weekends, featuring some of our Chef's best dishes. Reservations are not needed, but are suggested for weekends and for large parties. Remember, all of our great food is also available for take out. Stop by and enjoy a bowl of the award winning chili proudly served by the Great American Grille.
