We were looking for good food, good service and not too much noise. Hmmm. The Spirits Lounge at the Holiday Inn. As usual we were seated promptly and near the fireplace. Cocktails were ordered and made perfectly. My prime rib was done as ordered, and my wife's salmon was exactly as described. Excellent experience overall. Highly recommended!

Hotel food usually is a step behind good restaurants! Menu is very diversified and food is usually secondary to overall hotel operation. Had dinner with a group of friends and although service was good food did not meet our expectations. The salad was good, soup was fair and entrees could have been better. Blackened fish that was ordered was very... More

Dined here while staying at the Holiday Inn. This is our second year staying here and second time dining here. Scallops and Salmon were both excellent as was the service, Generous portions and reasonably priced. Will return when traveling in the area again.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn for a few days on business and didn't feel like going off premises for dinner not knowing the area. Pretty impressed with this place. Very calming atmosphere, 2 menus to choose from, a full dinner and "light fare" which was the same as the full menu only served al a carte. Ate there two nights... More

Both breakfast and dinner at this site during a recent visit to the area. Both meals were very enjoyable. The waitstaff was johnny on the spot and quick to respond to all requests. The food was excellent. My only disappointment was the scallops. They were bay scallops, all pretty much same size and breaded. I don't care for breaded scallops,... More

We decided to try the restaurant at the Holiday Inn, though we typically don;t eat where we sleep. We were, however, pleasantly surprised. All the dishes were tasty and nicely presented. Portions were plentiful enough that we all had leftovers. What stands out above the food, however, was our waitress, Samantha. She was an absolute delight and tended to our... More

We were staying at the Holiday Inn and had coupons for breakfast. Lots of egg options, decent coffee and very good buttermilk pancakes.

Was relatively quiet and comfortable on a Friday night. Great for relaxing! We had gone somewhere else at first but it was too crowded and noisy....This lounge was perfect for unwinding and the bartender was very personable and friendly. We had a nice evening!

After reading several recent reviews, the family decided to celebrate a birthday dinner here. Several larger parties were expected that night, but our party of five was seated promptly without having a reservation. Orders were placed: 2 lasagna specials, half roast duck, flank steak, and fried shrimp. Soup or salad came shortly after... of the 3 salads ordered, one came... More
