The Garden Grille & Bar is a must visit. Is located inside the Hilton Garden Inn but any one can come and enjoy the good food at fantastic prices and with the great service as a cherry on top.
Good variety of food for every taste. Also Starbucks is right there in the lobby and you can order it from the comfort of your dinner table. Will definitely go back!

Stayed here and after 2 mediocre meals, started using TripAdvisor to find other places with great success.

The blackened snapper was tasty and the sauce we nice. The vegetables were tasteless, steamed and probably previously frozen.

I asked what was on tap. The server answered with a very short list which ended up being incorrect and irritating especially since I could look over to the bar in the distance and make out a few beers he failed to mention.

The second meal, I asked specifically for a Stella ( I found on tap ) and he brought me back a bottle. Staff needs training but were sincere in trying but frankly, lots of places try hard.

The guy singing was quaint and an unexpected surprise. If a 60/70 something dj singing to your meal is your thing, then you will be delighted. I frankly felt I was in retirement center in Destin Fl. but, my 4 year old's seem to dig it - go figure.

The second night, my wife had the fiesta nachos and really liked them. I chose the shrimp po boy, which had a decent amount of shrimp and was well seasoned.

Again, this place is where you go if you stay at the hotel and don't want to drive down the road to where all the good places are located. I give this an average rating by merit of the server's effort - not ability and also the mixed food quality. Again...this place is average.

LONG wait for poorly microwaved frozen food. I feel sorry for the folks on the island if this is a top restaurant. The wife actually apologized for picking this place.

This is a typical little hotel bar that just happens to be inside the Hilton. The bartender Rudy was very nice and the drinks were great. Stop by and have a key-lime colada, you'll be very happy.

I literally love it ! It's such a friendly place to be at. And the waiter that would attends me is a very handsome young man named Erick. He was such a great waiter! Whenever I go I hope he attends me because honestly I think he's such a respectful & very nice young man. Yes all the waiters are good, but this young man is always right there when you want another drink or you want a desert or anything. So I give it a 5 star just for this handsome man.

Thank Vanessa G
