The Great American Grille offers a casual atmosphere where you can enjoy a meal with a group or at a quiet table near our fireplace. We offer a variety of traditional American dishes, but prepare them with a unique twist that we are sure you will enjoy. We also offer a Breakfast Buffet daily and a Prime Rib Buffet on weekends, featuring some of our Chef's best dishes. Reservations are not needed, but are suggested for weekends and for large parties.

Good food

The sandwiches are great and the sweet potato fries. Awesome selection. Can't go wrong at breakfast. What was nice on weekend night's some members of our group could get a buffet, but others could order from the menu. So, it works very well for groups with different types of eaters.

My husband has eaten here before, and indicated they have good steak, and he liked their breakfast buffet. I stayed with him this time, but we got up too late for the breakfast buffet (I'm assuming, since it wasn't there at 9:50AM), so ordered from the regular breakfast menu. It is a tad pricey - not outrageous, but there is... More

However i am disappointed to have read that our biscuits were dried and our toast and home fries were not up yours or our own standards.

Thank you for complimenting our clean and friendly restaurant. Being one of the few hotels around the area that serves food we need to seperate ourselves apart from them.

This is a restaurant that serves a wine in dirty wine glasses, has junk over-salted food. Do not recommend to anyone.

This is my third time at The Great American Grille. There were 2 other tables and the service was very slow; as with previous visits about 45 minutes, even the salads are slow to come out. The food is ok...nothing to brag about. Our waitress was very nice and kept our drinks refilled. This restaurant is ok if you are... More

Great food. Sausage gravy was outstanding. Reasonably priced. $9.50 for a buffet. Also saw menu for a reasonably priced lunch. Friends who ate dinner there raved about their meal. As we had banquet to attend did not eat dinner here

I have been at the Grande Sunday Brunch in April of 2014, and just again in September of 2014. Both times the service is unacceptably SLOW.
