Several prior reviews talked about poor service. But the three times we tried this restaurant [buffet breakfast, then two lunches], the service was fine. I can see on a slow weekday there might not be enough staff around, but on the weekend we stayed in this hotel the service at the restaurant was fine. The food was decent, especially given this was a Holiday Inn and our expectations were low. The breakfast buffet has an omelet / waffle station, and also a full menu available, so it’s nicer than the typical continental buffet breakfast at other similar hotels. For lunch we tried a burger, several salads, and the pulled pork sandwich; all fine. Prices reasonable for lunch. Can’t comment on the breakfast price because it was included with our room rate. Nor did we order alcohol, so have no remarks about the bar. There isn’t much around the hotel, so good thing the restaurant was okay.

This restaurant won’t be mistaken for what you’d see at a Four Seasons, but for the budget category it’s actually pretty good. This Holiday Inn has a large indoor atrium that holds events and social functions, so overall better than the typical Holiday Inn.

Stopped by on the road. I had the black bean burger and pulled pork burger. The meal was surprisingly delicious considering this is a holiday inn restaurant in the middle if nowhere. Poor service detracted. We were left alone too long for everything. Atmosphere is 70s bar decor.

Ate here twice while staying at the Holiday Inn which was connected to the restaurant.

The food was good, and the service was on point.

Kudos to both Gail (waitress on day #2) and Dave Z (server on day #1) for providing service with a smile and for being so attentive and interested in me while I dined.

The best part of this place is honestly the music. They've got jukebox-style oldies (50's / 60's) music playing in the dining room, which was pleasant.

Would definitely come back again if staying at the hotel again.

Ate dinner here on April 27th before the MMA fights. Had the buffalo wings and french dip, both pretty good but nothing fantastic. The breakfast the next morning(the restaurant is located inside the Holiday Inn and we stayed the night), was fantastic. It was 14.99 pp and worth every penny and included all you can drink coffee. They had a chef making omelettes to order, and he perfected the art. Best omelette I have had in awhile with all fresh ingredients you can choose. He also made belgian waffles to order. I had one with fresh whipped cream and strawberries. They also had bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, home fries, french toast, and numerous pastries and fresh fruit/juices... Best breakfast I have had in some time and I have to admit, completely unexpected.

I enjoyed great service from Nellye. The food is the same as usual though. They should put more breakfast and dinner items to choose from because they are getting boring.
