“Another Great Prime Rib Dinner”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Well, I don't know about any of the other meals that Tattingers serves or about who was looking after those that say it was a bad experience but whenever I have been there for the Prime Rib buffet on Saturdays (like our last two weeks), the service has been spectacular when compared to other restaurants on a Saturday night. The chef, Paul, was always around checking on the quality and appearance of the food at the buffet and also very friendly to talk to. Jen, the waitress, as always served us well and checked up all the time to make sure we had what we needed. The buffet is not huge with only one other meat selection and a pasta but when it is a "Prime Rib Buffet" that is basically what the focus is on! The restaurant is a service available for the hotel (as most other hotels in town don't have one) and it is not advertised so it is often overlooked which of course makes it a much quieter and a less busy restaurant (which my wife and I love because you can enjoy a quiet dinner). We have always found the main dish to be excellent however the other items vary each time. And depending on your tastes it could be good or not so good but... we come specifically for the Prime Rib. If you want a huge variety, then this is not the place to come. But to give them credit, on these last two visits my wife was very pleased to find that there were new fresh salads, fresh strawberries as well as a fresh fruit salad that she enjoyed (more than me because I am your meat and potatoes man). They also had a greater desert selection than in the past, but I am not a dessert kind of person, but my wife so she was even more pleased with the selections.
I know that some others have said that they had a bad experience, but they must have just hit the wrong time, or had different staff members. There was someone there carving or nearby in the serving area to carve the meat for us. The buffet on these last two Saturdays was terrific.

Again for those that want Prime Rib at a great value on Saturday nights in a quiet atmosphere, then this is where to go. I know that when someone has a bad experience they are more likely to write about it than when they have had a good experience and I have had a few as well but it is my philosophy to never rely on your first impression especially with a restaurant...you should always give them at least two if not three chances to impress you (it could have been an off day). And if you do it with Tattingers at the Holiday Inn I sure they will win you over!
