We only ate breakfast here, which was good with plenty of choice, but we felt it was expensive compared to other places we have stayed. If you can get a bed & breakfast deal through the Holiday Inn it is located in you will save money. We did not eat dinner here because again we thought it expensive an there... More

Passed this place & randomly stopped, but wouldn't return. It's attached to a hotel,so it might be the only option for some. The waitress was friendly, but not attentive;the menu was rather typical with nothing that stood out. Had the veg flat bread pizza. It was tasty except for the goat cheese & the entire half inch of the edge... More

We ate here because it had fairly good reviews on here, but also we were staying at the HI next door. Our server must have asked us at least 10 times during the meal was everything alright, hows the ribs, hows your drink, how are you getting on, etc.....it was very intrusive and un nerving! I had the beef hot... More

My wife and went to Houlihan's after a visit to the local flea market. My wife ordered a wrap. It was supposed to have pepper jack cheese and cilantro, but that was missing. I ordered the fish tacos, but they were rather bland to say the least. However, the Liter sized Long Island Tea more than made up for it.

It is not the confident place if you are not staying at the Holiday Inn. It was nicely decorated and the menu had a good selection. We went on a Monday for lunch and the restaurant was not busy at all, in fact there were only 4 other tables of people. The service was excellent. The food was good, a... More

Ate here with a buddy on a motorcycle trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We thought rain was coming, so we decided not to leave the hotel for supper. Food quality was OK, not memorable. Service was a little slow. Probably we would eat here again under the same conditions. Otherwise we would go out.

The atmosphere is very nice. Not as noisy as a lot of places. From order to table is a little on the slow side but The food here is consistently good so we will continue to eat here.

Had breakfast here. Very pleasantly surprised how good the food was for a hotel chain. Got the signature omelet and a side of sausage gravy, which was excellent. Enough food for 2 for 13 dollars. Included a carafe of coffee for free. Service was also very good will definitely be back. Highly recommend the hotel as well.
