We stayed at the Hampton next door. I eat there both night. Ribs and Classic Club both night. If it wasn't 6 hours away that's what I would be having for dinner tonight.

We chose this restaurant because it was next to the Hampton Inn and we needed a quick snack. We had the wings during their happy hour special. I am usually a boneless wing person, but the waitress recommended these and they were half price during happy hour. They were smoked then fried and just fell off the bone. I would... More

It was raining and this restaurant is attached to the hotel we were saying, so we decided to stay close. This was a mistake. The service was bad due to short staffing. The food was even worse. Soggy fish and chips.

A fairly good amount of food choices and plenty of drink choices. The food is just so-so except for the burgers. The burgers are very tasty and sure to fill you up. If you are looking to watch a game, the restaurant is surrounded with TVs. Prices are mid range. The location is perfect if you are staying at the... More

Although it said "please wait to be seated" there was no one out front to seat us. The poor bartender had a full house of folks at the bar taking drink and food orders AND had to take orders for the folks in the sparsely populated dining room. The wait for the food wasn't bad thanks to trivial pursuit from... More

Is kind of a sports bar type dining room--Many TV's, etc. The main dining room isn't wonderful..Spotlight ceiling lights seemed to beam right on me. Moved to a high table in bar and lighting and ambience much better. The small salad and mushroom swiss burger were both very good.

This restaurant was convenient to the Hampton Inn we stayed at which was fine. It was like a sports bar, so not the greatest for having a child there, although with the hotel so close, there were families there. The first evening we were there - a Sunday, the service was about the worst we've ever had anywhere. I think... More

As we were staying at the Hampton Inn & Suites next door for a couple of nights we had looked up the Highlander on Tripadvisor prior to our stay and been worried by the number of previous negative reviews. Yes this is predominantly a sports bar with numerous TV screens around the room. But after eating there on both nights... More
