We were looking for a casual place for drinks/dinner close to where we were staying..looked at Yelp reviews and we came across 5120 Restaurant & Onyx Bar at the Holiday Inn. We sauntered over on a Thursday evening. Stopped by the bar for cocktails and...we were greeted warmly by Jen. She was on top of things.. makes a wicked martini. The bar was quiet and within 15 minutes the bar was packed with hotel guests, who were there for training. Jen and her cohort, Juan took care of everyone lickety-split. We sat at the bar and ordered the Steak Bites for appetizer (NY steak bites with a gooey, yummy blue cheese sauce), Alfredo Penne Pasta w/Chicken and Beef Stroganoff w/NY Steak (not beef tips). Everything we ate was tasty and good!! I have to commend Jen and Juan for taking care of everyone quickly and with a smile!!More

Ate here because it was within walking distance of my hotel. Ate with a colleague while we were in-town for a conference. It was a Sunday evening so it was super-quiet but the server/hostess was very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We...enjoyed a good visit over our meal !More

We were eager to eat here based on 5 star reviews on Trip Advisor and an enticing website menu. When we arrived, we learned that menu had changed (to bar food) after a recent acquisition by Holiday Inn and that the owner had not bothered...to update the website. We declined to eat there.. maybe food is ok, but definitely not what is advertised. Remember that this is now a Holiday Inn and decide accordingly.More

We found the food to be very good and reasonable priced. There was good variety for a small restaurant.

We got tired of running around and after having breakfast in the hotel for several days as well as enjoying late night snacks(nachos fantastic btw) we decided to try for dinner. The fries are real and excellent. I have to say this was one of...the best places we ate during our week in the cities and we ate a lot of places. Even if we didn't stay at the hotel again we would still go back there and eat. They have great kids meals too, you just have to ask about them. My 4 year old had a great big cheese burger with homemade fries and a drink for less than 6 dollars. Its small and a little weird because the bar is right there and one dining room was being worked on and the other was being used for a function but the food was great and the staff were too.More

If you are seeking a place for a wedding/gathering of 40-120 people this is THE place. A total best kept secret in the rear of a Country Inn and Suites in Bloomington. This room is stunning -- surround in vaulted atrium glass, TWO fireplaces, 4...very large crystal chandeliers and to boot a glass water fountain. Just plain stunning -- you will not be disappointed!More

We went here because we've been seeking out new places to try in Bloomington and this showed up with good reviews. It is located inside the Country Inn & Suites and the decor is pretty nice. There is a nice bar and a room in...the back with a fireplace and a wall fountain feature. The menu we were given was not the same as the one on line but we both found something we could try. I had a buffalo chicken wrap and the meat was a little dry, no side of ranch was given. My husband had a sandwich and it was average. While the waiter was very nice, he was also handling the bar and all the other tables. Too long to wait for so-so food. Sorry, but we won't be back.More
