Stayed in the Hotel, which was also not such a great experience. The grill is only open for breakfast and dinner, high prices also. We arrived @ 7pm they closed the doors. The hotel stated they were not busy enough? How would you like to work like that hey boss we closed the doors, but hey were still on the... More

Emeraldgrill, Manager at Emerald Grill, responded to this review

Wow, sorry to hear you had the experience you did at the Emerald Grill. While it certainly occurs that we on occasion do close early, due to low Hotel Occupancy, it doesn't generally occur until 9pm. Clearly further investigation on our part is necessary, so we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. More

Used my voucher from HI next door. Service was extra friendly and quick. Food was about average but the service would make me feel that I wanted to come back, e.g. coffee to go.

The restaurant was nothing special, and the food was mediocre. Wouldn't go again. The hostess was also the server, and she did a good job of keeping up with all the customers.

Restaurant is beside the Holiday Inn. I would rate the food as very good to excellent. Prices are not cheap. Small. They have burgers as well as pork chops and fish.

Stopped here early in the evening for a quick dinner. Service was very prompt. Had the chicken entree. Portion size was good. Enjoyed the potatoes. Would have had dessert if I'd had room.

The main attraction of this restaurant is that it's located on the ground floor of Holiday Inn. Menu selections are limited, and service is average, perhaps because most guests are visitors staying at the hotel.

Quite little place in the Holiday Inn. Convenient for us as we were staying at the Holiday Inn Express next door. We opted for the Cream of Tomato bisque (I liked it, my wife was so-so with it) plus we had the Spinach and Artichoke Dip appetizer. All appetizers are $1 off during Happy Hour. Good food, nice quiet atmosphere,... More

We ate here twice during our stay at the adjoining Holiday Inn Express. One night, we had salads and sandwiches and the other night we had appetizers during happy hour. The menu is not extensive but the food was good, prices were reasonable and service was fine. The happy hour deals were generous.
