This restaurant, in the Doubletree Hotel, while convenient, is seriously one of the very WORST places I've ever dined. Opting for convenience, I had the "pleasure" of dining 4 nights and 1 morning (room service). The food is inedible. Truly the worst preparation, worst quality,...More

My husband and I checked into the hotel after eight and were hungry. We decided to wonder down to the bar and eat there.The portions were more than adequate. We can vouch for the burgers they are delicious.

Closes at 12AM, not 1AM as stated on hotel website, google maps, etc. Bear this in mind if arriving late and planning on food or beverages. Skyline Restaurant, 10 minutes away, is open until 1AM.

Bar hotel has no gluten-free options and does not appear they are concerned to provide any. Even the salad does not have gluten-free dressing.

Upon arriving to this restaurant the staff was in the corner talking and ignoring us. We were never greeted and decided to sit down. Waited about 20-30 minutes and finally asked a bartender if we had to order at the bar. Someone sat at the...More

The seared Ahi Tuna with the seaweed salad was fantastic! Highly recommend. I also got the blackened sea scallops in a white cheesy sauce and that was also pretty good.

Storm outside so we partaked in the hotel restaurant. Happy hour was great with prime rib being served. Food was good but the service was slow. Probably due to the number of folks that stayed in due to the storm.
