The service was extremely slow-30 minute wait for sandwiches and fries. Our food was not good, the fries were under cooked and the BLT had no flavor. We also ordered a quesadilla with chicken which we received with out chicken. Our waitress was the only one on the floor and she was running her butt off as best she could,... More

Ate here after a 12 hours day at the convention center. While the restaurant was understaffed, only one waitress that night, food came out quick and she did a good job of covering over 8 tables. Only negative was the taps were broken for the 4 nights we were there. Would have been nice to try a local beer on... More

Better than average hotel eatery. Breakfast buffet is very good and usually quiet in the mornings. Good option without leaving hotel

The restaurant is very conveniently located inside the Hilton City Center and right outside of the light rail stop. The lunch buffet is great and themed each day. The bar scene is awesome and a favorite for locals and travelers. There is also a nice large fountain right outside the building to enjoy more of the city's culture after your... More

Good selection of beers and mixed drinks, they appear to be a little understaffed as we had to wait 10 minutes before we were even acknowledged. Other than that, work stopping in.

I was in town for work and didn't want to go far for a quick bite. I ordered the Tuna Crisp and the Mediterranean Plate. Both were excellent, though it was too much food for one person. My coworker ordered the Carolina Salad. It looked delicious. The food prices are reasonable for a hotel and the drinks are strong.

Typically, I am not a huge fan of hotel buffet restaurants. Coastal kitchen is different and I go with my work buddies, depending on the flavors of the day. I subscribe to their menu so can pick and choose which day I prefer, but they do try all sorts of cuisines like Mexican, Asian, typical American such as roast chicken,... More

Staff is friendly and attentive. Food is good. We also had room service from the same kitchen one night, and the veggie burger and a regular burger were well seasoned, flavorful and portion sizes were huge (for us).

Nothing fancy here, but a good meal. Whatever you want a quick lunch with a salad or sandwiches, or a more formal meal, tehy offer a decent selection of dishes. Some beers on tap with an interesting local dark one. Good service in a peaceful environment; you can either be in the large lobby of the hotel/resort or inside, with... More
