When arriving late its very convenient to have a place for a drink and/or meal on site. This is very true of this site and the food and service were above average for a hotel property.

Under renovation and does not feel like a restaurant at all. We sat in a strange (empty) room and had the impression that the hostess/waitress also served as the cook. Food was expensive and of poor quality. Wouldn't go back.

Friendly waiter but very absent. Six pitifully small tough shrimp on a skewer, brown rice, and broccoli - all barely lukewarm. Will never return.

I was fortunate to have Grace as my server and she was not only very welcoming and friendly but also did an excellent job with my breakfast order.

Breakfast is always good, especially when Grace is your waitress. Very patient and helpful when making food selections and accomadations. The restaurant is nice and quiey and Grace is a delight to talk to.

It's our 25th anniversary so we made a brunch reservation. The food was terrible. Service was poor also. My husband has apologized several times for taking me there. We will not eat there again. Ever'

I had the steak and eggs breakfast and that was simply amazing! A huge select cut of meat and eggs, toast and potatoes done just right! My server, Grace, was top notch! I'll stay here again and come back to the River City Beefstro!

The restaurant is attached to both the Holiday Inn and Hampton Inn. The hotels use the restaurant for breakfast. The food was very good and the service was excellent. My only suggestion would be to add one person to provide a continuous presence. I noticed several days when the server was in the kitchen and new customers were not sure... More
