Ate both breakfast and dinner here with my son and my friend + his 3 boys. Breakfast: Breakfast consisted of a full buffet. Food was excellent, and our room came with two free breakfast passes. Dinner: Dinner consisted of typical pub food. Can't complain, it's what you would expect at a hotel. Child friendly.

Buffet was very good, food was fresh and seafood was excellent. Prime rib was delicious, and shrimp were nice sized not the tiny ones normally offered on buffets.

We dined here on a Friday night. When we arrived, we found out we could order off the menu, or try the all-you-can-eat seafood and roast beef buffet. We chose the buffet. It was good. There was shrimp, steamed clams, vegetables, all warm and delicious. The beef was a bit rare for my taste, but the waitress told us it... More

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
