Ate there while attending our yearly friends reunion. Staff was friendly as usual and food was great. Prices were fair.

I had dinner while staying at the Doubletree overnight. Walked in to find several 50-ish white businessmen and one African-American female bartender / doing double duty as a server, and her African-American female friend. The friend had connected her phone to the PA system of the bar and was playing it loud. I guess they felt that "Play that Funky Music White Boy", and "Get Down On It" were better than whatever the Hilton felt were good dinner selections. I ordered a Salmon Barigoule with Root Vegetables. For those unaware Barigoule sauce is supposed to be a light creamy reduction of chicken broth and white wine, typically with artichokes in it. What I was served was a rather nice salmon filet that had been broiled, which was then set upon some overcooked celery stalks, a couple small onion pieces and three pieces of artichokes along with five thick lemon slices, in a bowl of warm lemon water. Yuck! Clue to the cook - "root vegetables" are things like parsnips, carrots, celery root and so on. Celery is NOT a root vegetable. If you decide on the salmon ask that it be served without the lemon water, perhaps on some rice or noodles. I also asked for a side of "roasted mixed root vegetables". What was served looked roasted but was barely warmed. We are talking salad bar al dente. There were some large asparagus spears added to the barely warmed carrots that were so fibrous as to inedible. Bad choice. Hey cooks - please cook the food. Thanks. There was no roll or bread served with this $30 meal. At least the server was enjoying the music. There are lots of restaurants nearby. I'd suggest going to one of those rather than wasting your money on overprices poorly prepared food here.

We enjoyed our breakfast but it was not a stellar experience. Our waitress was very friendly but our second waitress was surly. They did not have crab for the crab omelet so I️ changed my order to the pot roast hash. The sauce and poached egg were perfect but the pot roast was very greasy and came in huge chunks. I️ would not order it again. The buffet looked good if you have a huge appetite.

Happy Hour from 5-7 PM has some mixed drink, beer and wine specials for $4 - $5 prices. Dinner is casual dining with quality food and efficient service. The breakfast buffet is extensive with many selections ranging from hot and cold cereals to made to order omelets.
