If you are tired after a day of touring, this restaurant is convenient for both the Holiday Inn and the Holiday Inn Express next door. The food is good enough, service is OK, and the pricing is moderate.

Ate dinner after checking in for day at HI Express. Good service, average + food. We were tired from traveling so it was handy. Came back later in evening for dessert which was very good.

I set lunch three times during a business. The food was acceptable but certainly not outstanding. Some items on the menu were not available.

One plus: it's open until 10, where most other establishments (that I know of anyway) are closed. but be very sure you get your entire order in before 10, as in my last time there they refused to serve dessert after 10.

We visiting the Emerald Grill as we were staying at the Holiday Inn next door. We are from the local area and seeing a concert in town.
