Great American Grill Restaurant (Hilton Garden Inn)
The restaurant has pretty limited decorations but plenty of space. 8.33 Louisiana ratingStar
Great American Grill Restaurant (Hilton Garden Inn) guyonthego

The Great American Grill Restaurant at the Hilton Garden Inn is a table service restaurant located inside the hotel. The menu has a mix of meat and seafood entrees. Salads, sandwiches and pizzas are also available. The hotel’s main floor including the American Grill Restaurant and a bar is located on the 11th floor. Parking is available in a parking garage on the first 10 floors.

The restaurant is located off the hotel lobby. There were few decorations, so the restaurant does not score well from a style perspective. However, space was ample and there was plenty of room between tables. There was a relaxed hotel type atmosphere around here without any pressure to eat quickly or the noise and distractions that are typical of high traffic restaurants. The hostess/server at the dinner service was pleasant, courteous, and helpful. She knew the menu well and made useful recommendations.

In a city that is known for food and is home to world famous restaurants, a hotel restaurant that is less visible and less accessible, would need to serve some pretty strong dishes to merit a favorable review on BlitzQuest. That was the case with the Great American Grill. It was good enough in February to earn a return visit in December. Both visits included an appetizer of succulent flash fried artichoke hearts with a delicious horseradish dipping sauce. A tomato basil soup of the day was also a hit with a rich, creamy taste and just the right amounts of tomatoes. A flat bread pizza was not quite hot enough but included an interesting garlic dipping sauce that really worked with the dish. For dessert a bread pudding served warm with bananas was a nice wrap up to an enjoyable meal on both visits. Whether you are a hotel guest or just in the neighborhood, this restaurant is a surprisingly good and little known choice for dinner. Quality food, pleasant staff and quiet surroundings were just the right ingredients for a great meal on both visits.
