What a surprise! Often Holiday Inn Restaurants are non descript, this one was excellent, great Tomato Bisque, very nice Tuna, good wine, well served by Aubrey and Stacy, and cooked by Chef Stephan. I would go out of my way to eat here.

The restaurant has nice specials each evening that compliment an already nice menu. Breakfast is a welcome surprise. Even if you aren't staying at the HI, if you are in the... More

I can easily recommend the buffet, which I enjoyed, but don't pass ordering from the menu as my wife did. Her mini waffles were perfectly and artistically prepared.

We pulled in just at 1pm and Aubrey made sure we got a beer after a 13 hour drive. He made our night, he was outgoing and personable and made the whole bar feel like regulars. Aubrey, if you're reading this: two overly chatty girls from Canada apologize for keeping you so long past closing time but please know you... More

I really enjoyed the food here, I ordered sirloin steak and it came out just how I wanted it. The service was superb too, my server Aubrey and the bartender Stacy were so kind and helpful, if I ever find myself back here I'll definitely come back!

She Crab soup and Turkey/Ham/Cheese wrap were plentiful and very tasty. Service and friendliness of staff made this one of my favorite dining experiences of recent memory. Highly recommend.

We live in Rock Hill and wanted to visit a restaurant we have not been to. Trip Advisor had excellent reviews. Those reviews were correct! Steak with rice and in season veggies were grilled to what my spouse wanted. Mahi Mahi with mango salsa was right on. Service was excellent--waiter gave us time to enjoy the food---no rush. Chef came... More

This is a restaurant located inside of a Holiday Inn. Do not let that fool you. The way I look at it, is that it's hidden and protected from the "trash" crowd. I'm no uptight, upscale, boojie guy, but I enjoy a nice restaurant. Even better that I can enjoy it close to where I live. The service was outstanding.... More
