Good choice but not cheap

Stayed for Super Bowl weekend and their was a good range of hot and cold. If it wasn't for the fact it was a business trip I may have looked at a local cafe instead

Great place for meetings if you are at the Hilton for work or conference, extensive wine collection, warm ambiance, opens into the hotel lobby.

This is a nice tavern to meet friends for a drink and very convenient if staying at the Hilton Hotel as linked to the hotel. The food in the bar or restaurant is also very good and fairly reasonable prices

Very cool bar in the Hilton Hotel. Tasty pub food for that late night snack and delicious drinks along with good choices for wine and beer. Good seating for couples and fours.

The staff is great, and the menu interesting and diverse. Unfortunately, two days after arriving the restaurant closed for renovations as part of Hilton's lobby renovation effort. They're in temporary quarters, but hopefully soon they'll be back to full operation.
