“Best Artichoke Dip EVER”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Engaging bar staff, and like I said the appetizer was to die for. The drinks were a little weak, especially given their price.

I definitely agree with the statement “Best Artchoke Dip Ever.” I could be bias but it is incredible. There are many appetizers on the menu that it’s hard to pick a favorite. Whether you come for appetizer, dinner or drink, the menu is full of choices. The bar is a great place to watch the game, unwind from a long day, or just visit with the nicest staff in town. We hope you’ll come back and try another one of our other great appetizers.

“Is it me?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

I've eaten there twice, giving it the benefit of the doubt. I've gotten the excuse of "yes, we know it's bad but we're a small town". For a hotel that charges hotel prices food quality should be a concern. My fish meal was over cooked, salad just lettuce and my teenager turned her nose up at the creme brulee.
I was actually served a mid level whiskey in a martini glass..which is like getting a soda in a coffee cup.

“It's a fine choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

This place does its best to create a high-end feel. Large leather booths, chandeliers, soft lighting. But for all the effort they miss the mark with the lighting and the ceiling.

I had the meatloaf ... They have me 3 large pieces which I couldn't finish. The sauce was actually sweet and it detracted from the meatloaf... Which was very good. I also received asparagus that was very tasty and very well seasoned. If you're on the road this was a fine choice. I spent $ 15 including tip. I waned the meatloaf... Which tourned out to be an inexpensive entree.

Thank you for stopping at the Amber Grill. The atmosphere in the dining area was designed to provide warmth and elegance. Guests have enjoyed the comfortable mood it provides for their dining experience. Amber grill is divided between into the restaurant and the bar so that each guest can have an individual experience. The wide selection of items on the menu provide a variety of choices from burgers to steak. The menu offers a large range of price points for appetizers and entrees. We have served hotel guests, travelers, and many local patrons. We are glad you enjoyed your visit to Amber Grill and look forward to you trying something new the next time you visit.

“Lunch with my daughter....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

I enjoyed the decor. Very low key and cozy. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Daughter liked the Strawberry and brie salad and she's not a real cheese nut. The burger was done to perfection and the veggies were NOT over-cooked. The shrimp was divine and not rubbery and chewy. There must have been some changes to menu...based on when I was there in the spring and there recently, the change was refreshing! Definitely will make a return visit sooner than last time!
