“Just OK and overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Soup is good, salad just OK. It should be illegal to say a salad contains "luscious ripe tomatoes" when in fact they are the hothouse variety that have been crossed with tennis balls. Generally overpriced average food with decent service. Good wine, but not cheap. For people staying at the Holiday Inn, it's really the only option unless they want to drive several miles - it's a countrified area.

“Quick, efficient, friendly, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

Service was fast and friendly; food was good; coffee was delicious! Wait staff provided our table with an entire carafe of coffee which the two of us polished off with no problem. Very nice buffet.

“Lacking in cleanliness, freshness and flair”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013

This is your standard dreary hotel environment, as far as the restaurant goes. The menu is pretty good but the food is tired and the restaurant itself is unkept. There is much better food available in the area (Slaters, Sweet Bites, Sorrentos, Local Table, Horseshoe pub, Cafe 641, Jakes place) but the food is edible enough if you are staying in the hotel and don't want to leave.

“Good for the hotel category”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

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.

“Surprisingly good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

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.
