Let's start with the wonderful selection of full meals priced at $7.95. There are about 10 entrees to chose from in addition to their full menu. We tried the steak, a new item on their menu. Just the right size, done perfectly, and accompanied by mashed potatoes, gravy and corn. Yum. The service is GREAT. They are a busy crew;... More

All food was great, especially the French Toast at breakfast. Lunch/Dinner specials were a good value and much appreciated. No skimpy portions even on the specials. The service was slow but the staff was friendly. Would recommend for those staying at the Hilton as well as walk ins.

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn where the Garden Grille and Bar is located and ate there several times during our vacation. The food was always tasty, the service was excellent and the prices were right. It was nice to have such a reliable choice available right on the property.

We were staying at The Hilton so we had a good deal on breakfast included with our room. Not your usual hotel buffet. Everything cooked to order however you want it. Omelet station, eggs anyway, pancakes, waffles, fresh fruit - you name it. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars. They have some good dinner prices but... More

we were staying at the hilton, decided to eat there the night we arrived because it was late and the convenience appealed to us. We picked out our dinners from the pictures of the meals on the menu. They were exactly as they looked and were excellent. I also had the cheesecake and it was phenomenal......the presentation was artistic. It... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights on the Island. The pkg deal included Thanksgiving buffet at The Garden Grille & Bar. We did the same thing in 2013. It was delicious. This year left a lot be desired. The dressing had to be Stove Top. I have nothing against Stove Top, but at a Hilton Restaurant??? We were both... More

Had been told by previous visitors that the Holiday Buffet was really good. I thought, "For $30 a head it better be." Loaded up my kids and grandkids and arrived at 6:15pm. This place was so packed there was a line out the door and down the hallway. A country band was playing so loudly that you could hear them... More

The only dish that we all liked was the shrimp. The buffet was extremely mediocre with limited choices at $28.95/person. The turkey had been shredded and left out, which meant it was dry, dry, dry! The cranberry sauce was canned and sliced. Nothing was remarkable. Never again will I visit this restaurant, and especially not for a special holiday buffet.
