Service and food just wonderful. Intimate setting, so nice to be able to hear ourselves. The food was excellent and we love to go whenever we can.

Went here two nights in a row for a business conference in early July. We had two happy hour functions here, one of which they served food. It was good for hotel bar food and the bar tenders were friendly. Nothing special but if you're from out of town and wanna post up somewhere to drink give it a shot.

I attended a professional seminar recently-lots of people at my seminar and at other conferences. But at a community lunch break there was only 10 people in the hotel restaurant,i.e., The Birch River Grill---which was in close proximity to all the meetings. Half the time I was there, the lone waiter, bartender, and busboy were one and the same. He... More

I visited this location with business associates after a meeting at the Doubletree where the restaurant is located. The restaurant is very nice and the service was pleasant. The food, however, was inconsistent. Some dishes were over seasoned and others were bland. Overall it was an ok experience and about what I excepted.

Service was fine, but the breakfast was no better than free continental. Bacon was limp. Scrambled eggs were rather a mess. Value not very good here. Find another option.

They had a breakfast buffet but I ordered an omelet off the menu instead. It was very good. The staff did a good job keeping my coffee cup filled.

First of all, it's a lovely restaurant/bar. It's spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. The menu offers a decent range of selections including some nice appetizers that are worth a try. Prices are what I would consider mid-range, not inexpensive, but not too pricey for the type of food and location. My biggest complaint is the service, and that costs this... More

This restaurant is inside a hotel - makes parking plentiful and not a lot of traffic to maneuver through. That's a plus. Seemed understaffed for lunch. Ordered a salad that was fresh and good. I thought the lunch menu was pretty bland although there were a lot of choices. Service was ok - food came out pretty quickly (they weren't... More

Found this place by chance, but I am glad I did. Loved the food . The dishes were elegant. I had some sort of vegetarian curry with black rice which was probably the best that I ever had. It is an all American food restaurant .
