Breakfast

They had a breakfast buffet but I ordered an omelet off the menu instead. It was very good. The staff did a good job keeping my coffee cup filled.

Service was fine, but the breakfast was no better than free continental. Bacon was limp. Scrambled eggs were rather a mess. Value not very good here. Find another option.

First of all, it's a lovely restaurant/bar. It's spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. The menu offers a decent range of selections including some nice appetizers that are worth a try. Prices are what I would consider mid-range, not inexpensive, but not too pricey for the type of food and location. My biggest complaint is the service, and that costs this... More

This restaurant is inside a hotel - makes parking plentiful and not a lot of traffic to maneuver through. That's a plus. Seemed understaffed for lunch. Ordered a salad that was fresh and good. I thought the lunch menu was pretty bland although there were a lot of choices. Service was ok - food came out pretty quickly (they weren't... More

Found this place by chance, but I am glad I did. Loved the food . The dishes were elegant. I had some sort of vegetarian curry with black rice which was probably the best that I ever had. It is an all American food restaurant .

We enjoyed the Breakfast Buffet and the waitstaff service was attentive and kind. The buffet was fresh and included Japanese as well as traditional American breakfast items on the buffet. My reservation is that at $15.00 a person, it is a little expensive for what was offered.

While staying at the nearby hotel we wanted a good tasty meal at the end of our travel day. The Birch River Grill is a little surprise tucked away on Algonquin Road in Arlington Hts, IL. Do not be mislead and think that you are getting hotel food! In fact they have wild game and all kinds of normal food... More

met 4 of my lady friends for dinner as it was equidistant for all of us. It is connected to a Double Tree so it appeared the majority of patrons were hotel guests. Food is good, service is excellent and it offers a comfortable experience at decent prices. The menu was varied and we all ordered something different. They have... More

Beautiful restaurant terrible staff. Rude and less than helpful. I've had better service at a self service gas station. Food is nothing to talk about. Imagine a breakfast buffet in a five room motel in Wyoming you'll get the picture. Hotel and staff (Double Tree) is beautiful and staff is focused and friendly. Not to worry there is a Denny's...
