OK, so, we followed the GPS and when it said we were there I will admit to being a bit apprehensive when I saw the HoJo sign?!? Anyway, we parked, and went it. It was a lobby for the motel? No, the breakfast room? Wait, do we go down the steps, yes! There is a little sign telling you to... More

Title: “Overrated - Underwhelming” What if ... the chandelier in the entrance stairway looked like it welcomed you to the restaurant? What if … the tables joined to accommodate a large party did not come with a speed bump that you needed to work around during your meal? What if … the pasta that came with the scallops looked and...

We were at the restaurant with a large group of about 20. They had us in a room to ourselves. There was no problem giving us individual checks by couples. The waitress was very accommodating, in spite of our group size , she took our orders and brought our food to us in about 20 minutes. We had no need... More

A recent menu change had both my husband and I disappointed. Was our favorite place for veal and few entrees remain. Good addition is offering half serving of pasta dishes. Service was just acceptable until waitress brought 1 pot of hot water for 2 orders of hot tea saying they had run out of tea pots. She did not return... More

Found this place on a tip during a conference. Good thing, because I would not have gone otherwise. The restaurant is below a tired-looking Howard Johnson hotel, but once you go down the stairs you'll feel like you've gone down the rabbit hole. Lobby has some very upscale art, and a very professional hostess. We were seated immediately, even without... More

My wife and I rented a room at the questionable HoJos and decided we would try out What Ifs. To our surprise, it was a pleasant dining area but the menu also shocked us. Who would have thought a classy venue would be below that hotel. Nonetheless, we decided to give it a shot to "treat" ourselves. Food: For the... More

This restaurant was on-site at the hotel and saved us when we returned to the room tired from a day of activities. The prices were very reasonable and the serving size adequate. The food was good and they have a children's menu that is more than adequate also.

We were a group of 20 + and had made reservations but then shrunk to 17. The staff was great at rearranging and letting us have a great time as a large family. Dessert was great for those who had it and it was great food at a reasonable price. The 20% gratuity was well earned.

Had dinner party there for nieces birthday. Didn't think we were in the right place when we pulled up(Ho-Jo's?) but once inside the restaurant it was easy to see why it was recommended to us. Donna and the rest of the staff were great and friendly, food was fantastic as we'll, I highly recommend to anyone looking for a great... More
