The food was creative, extremely good, and reasonably prices. Drinks were a bit pricey and it would be nice if they had a better craft beer selection at the bar.

In my opinion the restaurant alone is a reason to stay at the Holiday Inn here. The food is great, unique meal selections and reasonably priced. Huge wine list for a small restaurant. Try it!

The two best things (by far) are their patio and their seasonal champagne-popsicle cocktail! The patio is nice and large, with both normal and high top tables, plus some cushioned seating and heaters. They should definitely add their champagne-popsicle drink to the menu year round...More

Dear C - So glad you tried our champagne popicle cocktail - it so refreshing that it has become a very popular drink. We will take your advice about keeping on the menu into consideration. It is a cocktail that is perfect for summer.

We had the best brunch ever. I am usually not a brunch person as there is too much food and most not good. Also for a holiday brunch it is usually over packed with people and the food is not replenished in a timely manner....More

Brunch at The J Bar is plated items, not a buffet. Each item has its own price based on what it is.
