We tried Great Rivers Tap & Grill because they were participating in All Star Restaurant Week. We ended up having the wood fired pizza, which was delicious. We plan on returning because of the outstanding service and great food. I highly recommend.

First off, the staff here was excellent and very friendly. The breakfast bar was just the average of most other hotel restaurants I have visited. If you are staying at the hotel, I would suggest paying the extra to get the breakfast bar.
