Great for Breakfast

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... read more

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!

5:30 pm on a Saturday night and we were the only two people in the place. Not that I'm complaining but it was a little disconcerting. We ordered from the Low Carb section and were very glad for it. The portion sizes were perfect. Our 6 oz. steaks were done just right and the vegetable sides were hot and tasty.... More

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 thought it... 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
