We were staying at the Hilton Garden Inn during Snowstorm Jonas. As we were snowed in, we did not have much opportunity to go to any other restaurants and unfortunately were stuck with Todd Gray's as our only option. The first night, we went there for dinner, and service did not impress. Not only did our waiter/waitress change 3 times... More

This restaurant has been one of my favorite places to conduct business meetings. The lunch buffet at $14.00 has always been a great value. However, over the past few months the service has been horrible. The options on the buffet have also included more meat. If you are a vegetarian your options are becoming slim from this place. I am... More

From brunch to after dinner drinks, the staff are super friendly and accommodating. Food is great. Try the seafood gumbo -- it's delicious!

As someone who travels often, and stays at mid-range hotels, it is very rare to say that they have a great restaurant. Well this restaurant is fantastic, so much so that our party ate in at the hotel every night - partly because we were tired, partly because there are no great restaurants in walking distance, but mostly because the...

We ate here three times plus breakfast while we stayed at the hotel. The hummus is amazing. Seriously. Everything else was delicious as well. You can't go wrong with most of the items on the menu. The service staff were very nice and attentive but not hovering. If I lived nearby, I'd go just because.

Convenient as part of Hilton Garden Inn. Had buffet breakfast there morning of 11/1/15. Staff was attentive. Food was cooked well and delicious. In & out within 20 minutes.

During our stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, we ate here twice. The breakfast buffet was okay as far as selection but pricey. After staying in other HGI's and getting a continental breakfast with the room, we were disappointed that this location did not do the same. On our last night, we tried the happy hour for an early dinner.... More

Be Better than most hotel restaurants with a lovely outdoor area in good weather. The inside dining is very close to the bar and can get noisy at happy hour.

At first glance, the attractive restaurant and outdoor dining area are welcoming and attractive. But...dried up and overlooked salmon one night and on the second night, two NY strips in a row ordered medium and poorly cooked--one dry and grisly and the other red and grisly. Both uneatable. They redid the salmon, and although a long wait to make it... More

We chose this place solely based on location and convenience but it did not disappoint. Located inside the Hilton, the atmosphere is pleasant but nothing special. The food, was excellent. A corn chowder was well seasoned and flavorful. The shrimp and grits were excellent with light cheesy texture and large, perfectly cooked shrimp. I ordered a minted melon sorbet for... More
