Dinner and breakfast were great

We ate breakfast and dinner there. Both were great. The breakfast buffet had a huge bowl of fresh blueberries and blackberries...my favorite. The big tray of bacon was a welcome site also.

My coworker and I decided to come to McKenna's just because it was next to our hotel and it had a bar. Those are important on a business trip. Anyways, we enter the restaurant and ask to be seated in the bar area at a high top. We were completely ignored. I am not one to bring race into a... More

The service was excellent and committed to making my day brighter. While I appreciate this, the $15 "Parmesan Herb Tilapia" I ordered had no flavoring but burned Parmesan, the vegetable medley tasted like roasted peppers, and the mashed potatoes were lukewarm, dry, and instant. I was disappointed in the food quality. No decent restaurant serves instant potatoes.

The food was very good, served up with a very friendly smile. Only bad thing is when its 30 below outside it is not warm in the restaurant at all.

I got the special last night which was Chicken Marsala with mashed potatoes and seasonal veggies. My chicken was small and the gravy tasted like it came right out of the can. My boyfriend ordered the steak which also came with the potatoes and veggies. His steak was small and very over cooked. We were told after we started complaining... More

We had burgers, steak, and fish during our stay at the Holiday Inn Express which is right next to the Holiday Inn where McKenna's is located. The food was all very good. Servers were very attentive. Prices reasonable. The pork and chicken on the Saturday evening buffet were also good..

This was the restaurant at the Holiday Inn in Rolling Meadows where I was staying. I enjoyed the food and the service and was happy to know it was open and available when I needed it. They are willing to prepare take-out too. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The food was healthy, plentiful and tasty.

Prices just went up, but with the economy, its understandable. They have daily specials, good selection, very good service. The wait staff have been there for years and treat you with ultimate respect.
