We have had both breakfast and dinner. The food is very good and nicely priced if you are on a budget.

The Serengeti is really nice inside, I'm surprised they don't get much outside business. The food is good and the service was attentive.

Second time I've stayed at the Howard Johnson's Hotel and I have dinner at Serengetti every night. Prime rib, King cut, for $19-cooked perfectly. Wing night on Wednesday's is a treat, dozen different sauces. Fasil is the owner and runs an excellent restaurant. Highly recommend when in the area! You won't be disappointed.

We were surprised at the quality of food from a restaurant in a hotel. I'm amazed more people don't come into the restaurant even when they are not staying there. The ribeye was delicious!!

My mother planned a surprise retirement dinner for my father here, & he was definitely surprised! The Serengeti theme was so much fun for the whole family (party of 9, plus 2 toddlers)! The entrance had dramatic leaves to really give that jungle vibe, with more leaves in wooden baskets hanging above. There was a small lounge in the corner... More

Ate here for breakfast twice. Good food, friendly wait staff. Due to the serengeti theme, there are tons of plants blocking the light fixtures, so it is very dark inside. Okay for dinner, I guess, but kind of strange for breakfast.
