Thank you so much for writing such a wonderful review! We really appreciate all the details about your experience that you shared! It is amazing how people like to think that since the restaurant is in a hotel, that the food quality and experience will be be sub-par! Thank you again, and have a great day! More

After nine hours of driving, we were amazed to find this gem of a restaurant attached to a Holiday Inn. Our waiter, N. Kirby, served up an excellent old fashioned and Czech pilzner beer on tap. My sea bass had perfectly crisped skin and was served on herb spaetzle and spinach. The side dish of SoZo Brussels sprouts was very... More

Nice atmosphere, great service. The pizza was good. Menu is a bit sparse. Drinks are not over-priced

Went to eat there while on business trip. It is attached to the Holiday Inn. Very nice atmosphere and very clean. Great menu and beer selection. I had the New York Strip and it was awesome. The smashed potatoes were great also. Extremely nice staff. Will go there again!

I had the pork medallions and the meal was very good. The service is also outstanding. The lady tending the bar area was very fun and had a great sense of humor.

While this restaurant is located in a Holiday Inn just off of I-80, don't let the location fool you. In my opinion, it's the best restaurant in town. There is a variety of seating, from seats at a very nice bar to those in the open area nearby and more secluded seating as well. While it is American cuisine, it... More
