The restaurant is right next to the Holiday Inn. Breakfast has a great selection and is very good. The cocktail lounge opens at 4:30 pm and has amazing appetizers!

The food was delicious and I loved it.My kids ordered mac and cheese. The menu said mac and cheese with a side of vegetables, but all they got was a small bowl of mac and cheese, two pieces of celery and a carrot. Both of my children wore really hungry.I highly recommend for adults.

This restaurant is located next to the Holiday Inn on Dexter Avenue and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Emerald Grill has a selection of good tasting food at a very good value. The house special steak salad serving is more than one average person can eat. The fish and chips were nice and crunchy and served with home mode... More

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express next door and saw the menu for the Emerald Grill. The burgers are fresh and cooked "just right" and the burger comes with fries or a salad. The salad is surprisingly large and full of leafy greens. We liked the burgers so much that we returned 2 evenings later. The service can be a... More

Restaurant next door to the Holiday Inn Express & Holiday Inn. Went in for late-ish dinner after long flight. Kid had the Seared Salmon, but without the tzatziki sauce (dairy allergy), quinoa and veges. Was a good sized bit of salmon, a little dry/tad overdone, but not unexpectedly dry without a sauce on top. I got the Ahi tuna appetizer... More

I hit this place after a long and grueling flight, which involved my only meal all day was some peanuts that were not as "plain" as they were supposed to be and the gluten turned the next 6 hours of my flight into a nightmare for my stomach. This place happened to be connected to my hotel, which made it... More

This was next door to the Holiday Inn Express. Not much in the way of restaurants nearby. Good food at reasonable prices. Pleasant wait staff. Nice bar
