Unexpectedly stuck in Dulles overnight we stayed at the Hilton and this restaurant was part of it. Food was very good and plentiful for the money. Service was excellent and they even had a guitarist playing during the evening we stayed.

It was about 3 PM and I was starving. I ordered fish tacos and a beer. The food was delivered so quickly, and was delicious! I am usually wary of hotel restaurants, but this was fantastic and a lovely peasant surprise.

Best food I have ever had from a Hotel Restaurant. Great dinner after a long day of driving. The waitstaff were on point. Recommend the Club Sandwich.
