We had a business meeting at the hotel and ate at the hotel restaurant, which typically is not a good decision, but the food was very good. While I can only speak of the dish I ate, everyone at my table said their food was excellent. I ordered the sea bass, and it was far better than sea bass that... More

After a busy day of touring, shopping, & dinning my family just wanted some Wings Appetizers so we could eat & relax for a while. The Cajun was too heavenly seasoned, but the honey barbeque tasted great & were meaty. The restaurant has a spacious, open, atmosphere that was quiet, especially with no events going on this evening. This place... More

I visited this Grille twice once for lunch and once for dinner. The server in the bar at lunch time was a sweetie and our food delicious, best hamburger around. We came back for dinner in the dinning room and was really disappointed in the service, Our server was an older gentleman, he seemed a little put out that we... More

Great place to go for dinner. I would normally avoid resturants at hotels but not this one. The food is always very good and cooked to order. Amazing cornbread, Mac n cheese and many other items. Also this is a nice environment for a fancy date out.

We've been here several times. There are always coupons and Groupons available for this restaurant so you won't overpay. Nice selection of menu choices. We had the filet. It was delicious. Nice environment as well.

Let me begin by saying that the front desk staff are amazing (Markietta, Jeremy and Kristen!) The issue that I had was with the restaurant, the manager Nikki to be exact. She was very rude and argumentative. Here's the breakdown: My boyfriend initially went to the restaurant to order two broiled crab cakes and a crème brûlée to bring up... More

So, this restaurant is a bit over priced, but what Hotel restaurant isn't. The room service menu is the exact price as the dine in prices. Most Hotels mark up the room service prices by a buck or two, so this was refreshing. I ordered a hamburger and they cooked it to order and it was actually cooked to medium... More

The quality of the food does not match the prices on the menu. For convenience we ate here on the first night having arrived at the hotel. On reflection we should have ventured out to one of the many restaurants in the area. The service was great though, all the staff were very friendly and helpful.

We are staying at the Tim Johnson campground at the Speedway. After a long drive, it was rewarding to check Trip Advisor and find a reasonable American grille nearby. The fortunately for us, a splendid prime rib buffet was the special.

It was good-we had a table of 8 and everyone was happy except the guy who got a steak-I had salmon and it was delicious.
