Had a very nice lunch on the outdoor patio with an old friend. We chose it as a half-way point from where we live and it was good choice. Though on the edge of the parking lot of the Sheraton, there are so many trees and bushes, you aren't aware, and there's no traffic noise. Especially noteworthy is the large specimen tree, a Moreton Bay Fig, at the edge of the patio that is just beautiful. It's hard to judge the entire menu off of one salad, but it stands as good and tasty as most nicer restaurants I've been to and at a similar price point. Service was very friendly and attentive.

Our server Naomi or Ruth don't remember her name was outstanding. She was attentive to our needs and had an upbeat personality. I celebrated my 20 years as a two time cancer survivor with friends. We had a grand time.

My family and I went to Easter Brunch and we arrived at the beginning of the brunch. THe decorations and food looked very well displayed and it was also very well layed out for everyone to get to with ease. Our seating was very lovely in the atrium area . It was a beautiful setting with a nice view of the outside area. It was a pleasant ambiance and the food was enjoyed by my entire family. Very nice relaxing day!

Adequate and awful. The server seemed to have little ability to describe menu items and was extremely slow.

Service was very slow even though there was very few patrons in the restaurant. Splitting the bill was a nightmare. Also the prices were quite high.

The menu was not as it was advertised on their website. The service was good and the prices were affordable, but the atmosphere was more coffee shop than expected.

Ratings for food, ambiance, and value should be N/A. Our experience may have been an anomaly due to short staff. We did arrive ten mins late to our reservation, but with only three other visible parties seated, we were told we would need to wait another 5-10 mins. Two other parties of two arrived after us and were waiting as well us. We waited 20 minutes when one of the three visible seated parties decided to leave as they had not yet placed their order. At this time, we left as well. This restaurant is attached to /inside the Sheraton Hotel if you are looking for it.

Nothing special about this place unfortunately. I would not recommend nor would I return. Disappointing experience. The food was bland and uninspired.

Great food. I really enjoyed my salmon salad, it had very fresh ingredients and was well prepared. The service was slow. I think there was a miss communication between servers as to who would wait on our party. I would try it again in hopes that it would not happen agin because we all enjoyed our lunch.

Not foodie quality, but a step above the diner chains. The hotel in its park-like fairground setting is an oasis in suburban sprawl, and we're happy to stay and eat in comfy surroundings when visiting family nearby.

We were 15 minutes early and did not get seated until 15 after our arrival. The service was very slow. We had to ask the busboy to clear plates. We could not find the waitress. The food was cold when it was delivered to the table. It was confusing to me because as I looked around, there were a lot of empty tables. Hostesses and waitresses were standing around talking. Food was excellent when it came out the second time hot.

Other than good turkey, the food was delivered off kilter. The rolls were delivered AFTER the food. The food was delivered immediately after the salad. We had to wait 45 minutes after eating for the check. What was advertised as Apple crisp was nothing more than a very poor apple pie. Other than good turkey this is a place not to be returned to.

We enjoyed a tasty Thanksgiving dinner served "family style." Loved the setting, pacing and style of service...Our server was polite but lacked evidence of training, i.e. A party of 3 seated at a table set for 4, he or a bus boy should have removed the extra place setting prior to, or upon our being seated. The space was definitely needed for better placement of serving bowls and platter for family style serving. After the meal, the dinner plates should have been cleared before serving dessert and we should be asked if we'd like to have coffee. Attention to these service details would have made an overall nice dining experience even nicer. We're giving this restaurant consideration for Christmas Dinner, "family style."

We went to here to celebrate our tenth anniversary with family. We all ordered the prime rib special. They were out of Yorkshire pudding, the signature salad, the waitress didn't recommend the soup, and she was unsure of what came with the meal and what didn't. Once we ordered, the food was good, but it was not amazing. Some components were perfect (prime rib), some were under seasoned (potatoes and veggies), and some were over seasoned and salty ( Mac and cheese, collard greens). Overall we have come to expect amazing here and this night was off. Even dessert was limited to cheesecake or ice cream even though the advertising and online menu boast three non ice cream desserts. So, meh. That's how I felt about dinner.

I found this restaurant on Open Table while looking for a new place for a friend and I to have dinner. The farm fresh produce intriqued us so we were willing to pay a little more than normal. We ordered the steak and chicken entrees to split and the risotto. The chicken was very dry and was completely falling apart while trying to eat it. The steak was good but low quality for the price. The risotto on the other hand was fantastic and creamy. The vegetables that came with the entree were equally declicious. We had the coffee ice cream for dessert, fantastic!!

The quality of the food does not match the price. Although the service and some of the food was good, I'm sorry to say, I don't think I will be returning here.

The food was far too small to notice appetizer on the table. Two buck chuck wine served for $20 bottle low end. Lobster pasta,paste! No lobster,lots of bread crumbs, bread was too cold, the main course, my Lady had the chicken. Served dry, no sauce, no seasoning, she Returned. Ca vier a joke 6 eggs literally on a slice of Radish size of s penny. 8:30 dinner with no more than 8 couples if that, we were told that the desert, which had to be shared Lava cake, was not available from the paper menu.
she loves cheese cake, we took it to go. Awful our dog managed to get it down.
I was going to propose. However with the meal that she looked so forward to
I decided the Sheraton Mckinleys was not the spot.
the only thing that kept everyone from complaining was the service from our waiter who goes by Angel.
We eat and Travel the world, this place had 5 stars for being the worst, stranger's joined our table to discuss how bad after our meals. A waste of $150.00
NEVER AGAIN.

Our dinner at McKinley's Grille was excellent all round. I had the Valentine martini which I loved but we opted not to have wine. The lobster mac, crab cakes, and steak were perfect as was the service. We ate on the patio under the stars! It was a beautiful and romantic setting!
