Ok for the money...

Upon entering from the outside entrance, the place had a sports bar feel. Huge bar area and about 4-5 TV's. When you walk to the next area, a little more quiet area, has a big fireplace. I would say, the menu is a lot like an Applebee's. We ate around 7:00 in the evening, but you would have... read more

I was staying at the attached Hampton, and it was raining, so I walked in. There was nobody in the dining room and about 5 people in the bar. I ordered a glass of wine, it was fresh and well priced. The bartender was also the waiter, and he did a very good job. I ordered the chicken sandwich and... More

This restaurant is attached to the Hampton Inn Hotel right off exit 242. I really appreciated not having to go looking for a restaurant after a long day of driving. They don't have a large menu but I was pleasantly surprised and pleased to see a few gluten free items.. It took the guess work out of ordering. My server... More

nice place if you want some nice meal and want to stay next to the hotel. Dining room is quite lonely, it may be a better choice to have dinner at the bar, where there is a little more people.

Very institutional. Most everything, obviously, came from a box. I was there on a Friday evening and very few other patrons were there. The bar was extremely over priced and slow to serve. The staff on hand seemed uninterested with their work nod who can blame them if they work for tips, not gonna make much. I expected a lot... More

Had a late dinner here. The burger and fries were good and they had a nice selection of beers on tap. We also had breakfast here the following morning. The wait staff is from the local college which makes for good conversation also.

Food was good but not much of a menu. They did offer room service and free drink coupons from 5:00 to 6:00 which didn't do me any good as I didn't get back from work till at least 6:30

We loved this restaurant...After traveling on highway 80 all day it was nice to get a room at the holiday inn and walk to this restaurant which was adjacent to the hotel (halls connect the two places)

We were staying at the Hampton and someone at the desk said "You won't get a bad meal there." True, but for the prices - only adequate. The chicken parmasean was good, but the pasta was way past al dente. My husband enjoyed the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. I was supposed to get a salad with my dinner - never... More
