“A very filling Breakfast Buffet for only $5.99...Amazingly good!!”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

One can no longer go to even fast food places like McDonalds and get a good healthy and tasty meal and be served by a waitstaff member for $5.99 for an all one can eat breakfast buffet like the one served at the Alamo Steakhouse and Grill at the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch. I attended with family and friends this past Sunday and was amazed at the breadth of food served and how well it tasted. One can have eggs, bacon links, sausages, assorted cold cereals served with whole or 1% milk or hot oatmeal with raisin and brown sugar toppings. Coffee, juices, and milk are included in the very affordable $5.99 price for the buffet and if one wants to get a little less budget conscience for an additional $1.00 one can have eggs benedict. Muffins, bagels and assorted toasts are also served and like I have stated one gets served by a wait staff member and the cost is very affordable. The 6 of us who attended the buffet this past Sunday ate for less than $40. If one does not want to eat the buffet the menu has a wide variety of options one can order from and the most expensive item is still less than $8.00 for the meal.
I wholeheartedly plan to come here again to eat the breakfast buffet and hope many others do as well. Currently the buffet was started in March and will go thru Mothers day weekend...but if enough people come and enjoy the good food and atmosphere I am sure the buffet will be extended to meet the demand of the customers.

“Sunday Brunch for $5.99 - What A GREAT BARGAIN - Tastes Good Too!”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Where else can a party of six eat a Sunday (All You can Eat) Brunch for under $40? No Idea, but you can eat at The Alamo Steakhouse and Grill at the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch.
This Breakfast Buffett was available for Easter at the cost of $23.99 per person (They Did add Ham and Traditional Easter Food for the event though). However, Every Sunday one can feast upon Scrambled Eggs (with Cheese, Salsa, or plain) Pototoes - cooked breakfast style, Sausage Links, bacon Slices, Oatmeal, a fare of Cereals that can be topped with Raisins and Regular or Low fat Milk, Fresh Fruits, pastries, Bagels, Breads and assorted other faire that make this a GREAT DEAL anywhere in the Sarasota area as we drove over 20 miles to experience this extravaganza.

“Livewire restaraunt”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

Not cheap, although you can choose a hot sandwich. It is good food. We were remembered with great charm even though we had complained last year

“A great place to come for breakfast. lunch or dinner without breaking the bank.”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

While on a day trip with the family we decided to come here and try out the food as we had friends who went recently and enjoyed the experience.Since we live on Longboat Key 25 miles away this place is not close to just go whenever we want to. We came here for lunch, 4 of us and were promtly seated by the hostess Sara. Our waitress, Patti, was just as prompt and quickly told us of the specials for lunch and the good things on the menu. Between the 4 of us we ordered the soup and salad, a chefs salad, the El Cubano (Cuban Sandwich) and I had an 1/4 pound Buffalo Burger. The food was excellent and all was served with the appropriate temperature. We only had to wait perhaps 15-20 minutes for our food to be served and the service from the waitress was excellent and impecable.
Well worth the 25 mile trip here and this will definitly not be our last trip. The prices were also amazing. All 4 of us ate for under $40 with a 20% tip included in this price.
The Holiday Inn at Lakewood Ranch is very deserving of a restaurant of this high caliber being on its property as the hotel restaurant. And, if you have never had a Buffalo Burger this is a place one has to come to have the experience at least once in a lifetime. Add the Alamo Restaurant to your Bucket list while visiting (and definitly if you live in the area full time) the Bradenton/Sarasota area.

“Consistenly Good”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

Wehave stayed at the Holiday Inn for the last 8 years and have enjoyed our New Years Eve dinner at the Alamo on each occasion. We also eat breakfast here several times on each trip.

The menu, whilst not enormous, gives a good choice of steak, chicken, fish etc along with some lighter options. The food is well presented and has always been tasty.

The staff are professional and there is a relaxed atmosphere.

Restuarants attached to hotels have a tendancy to be overpriced and mediocre, neither of these can be said of the Alamo. During the last 8 years it has been consistently good and reliable for us. It was nice to see that most of the guests on December 31st were not hotel guests which is a good sign that word is getting round.

I hope this will be our New Years Eve restaurant for many more years to come.
