Sunday Lunch
Take a seat at one of the city's hottest tables when you dine at The Noell JCT restaurant and lounge.
Noell Junction will be a regionalized Farm to Table Chef Driven Restaurant. The name “Noell Junction” is derived from settler Sidney Smith Noell. The current Addison community was named after him. It was called “Noell Junction”. Mr Noell gave land in order for the Cotton Belt Railroad to build a rail line to Dallas through Addison. This rail line eventually led to the Mid-West (St Louis) and Southern US. Hence the name Noell Junction, as it was a major coaling station, used by the St. Louis, Arkansas and Texas Railway companies.

It should be noted that this is a hotel restaurant. That not bad but when we asked about our reservations we were to to have a seat at the bar? The dining room across that hall was not for use. It was a birthday celebration and if they had let us sit in the area across the hall it would’ve been nice. So there no respect for our reservation so we left.

I was impressed with the staff. I had a small business dinner to host and made a reservation on line. When I arrived the table was prepared in a quiet corner. However there was a buffet only dinner that evening. I was graciously offered a table in the very busy bar so we could choose from the bar small bites menu in addition to the buffet or stay in the dining room and have the buffet. I chose the dining room and was very glad I did. My team members were thrilled with the buffet and the quiet corner facilitated a very productive brain-storming session. Well pleased. The atmosphere is very modern but business casual. Drinks were impeccably made although expensive. Food was well prepared and not a huge portion left to dry out on the buffet line. One of my team members is vegetarian and had ample choices for her meal. All in all I would absolutely hold a business dinner there again.

Large private group of 100 plus imposed on a regular restaurant patrons in a small buffet area.
Huge lines pass the entry door for hours, No access to food. One large noisy party
Loud noise overridden the harpist for hours.
Patrons had no food left after 15 minutes.
Seafood was not replenished ay noon for brunch.
No access to food , not deserts for hours due to the constant party line.

Restaurant patrons were sent to the back room while the center tables were left empty due to the lack of space and lines weaving through the center tables.

Chaos, noise and unpleasant atmosphere made my brunch I attend for over 30 years a total fiasco.
Imposition on a large party like "have been" Playboy Bunnies was not acceptable for me and many patrons with families, who spoke to me during the Bruch.

It was obvious mismanagement of a scenario totally unprofessional and cheap, with limited staff regarding the hotel hosting a large group, and running them through the small buffet line in a limited space of a restaurant, rather than serving them separately as a banquette service.

This brunch as a Renaissance - Marriott ( mgmt.) it's a far cry from the former Intercontinental style Brunch for 30 plus years. Food limitation and high prices in addition to the fiasco brunch on Sunday.

This brunch has been advertised as word by mouth through the local community, which is the best form of advertising you can get.

I let the long time employees know of a huge disappointment for this Sunday brunch.
I hope this was the only one time incident.

Took my wife here for Sunday brunch on her Birthday. Food was really good and it came with bottomless mimosas and Bloody Mary’s. They were a little slow with the refills. We really enjoyed ourselves, but at $35.95 per person, I don’t think the value was worth it. Not complaining about the experience, just the cost.

Had a very bad experience. When we got to the restaurant, there was no one there. They said the restaurant was closed, but they said they might be able to find us someone to prepare our dinner. Very bizarre experience.

I hosted a ladies brunch here. It was perfect. The food was great, the bottomless mimosas even better! 😉 Our waiter, Oud, was simply the best. Very kind and attentive. I loved the lady playing the hard in the background, very calming.
Great experience overall.

We went for Mother's Day Buffet...such an amazing spread..
All of us found plenty of great breakfast and lunch offerings and the set price was just right for all that was offered as part of the package. A large ballroom is where the large pecial occassion events like this one is held...this year a differet ballroom from last year...and much grander. There was live harp and piano music, photos and more. It was certainly a great day, great service....management stopped by each table to make certain all felt welcome, to chat with everyone and to wish all mothers a great experience. Will go back next year if our mother is still with us.

Easter brunch was in ballroom. Food was good, the table we were sat at seemed to have dirty linen, did not change out between customers. Other than that, it was nice, but seemed to be better a couple years ago.

When I made the reservation they advertised the price for brunch will be slightly higher for special occasions, (Easter). Advertised price was $22.95. When I got to the hotel with family, the price was $90.00 per person. Wow. The ballroom was nicely decorated. We were one of the first groups seated. Waited to be brought coffee. After five minutes walked up to a waiter and asked for coffee. He didn't seem to understand me and walked away. Wait staff was just standing around in groups of two to three, not helping anyone. Finally located a supervisor and asked for coffee. He had a waiter bring us coffee. Creamer on the table was empty. Asked for cream, another five-minute wait. Brunch food was cold, (and we were one of the first groups into brunch). My wife asked for tartar sauce for fish, she never received. I asked for jelly which came after I was done eating. I could live with the $90.00 per person if the service and food were noteworthy, but both were unacceptable. Never again, fool me once . . . .

Martiott needs to continue with the tradition of flower arragements in a dining room and bar area as it was for 40 years. The reception area had a marvleous arrangement.

This past week the fliweres were missing again and the empty large brown tables were an eyesore.

The chocolate fountain is a must not a chocolate tub which looks rediculous for the last few weeks.

Always an outstanding setvice by the staff Lilian .

Good food atmosphere nice as long the management would not sit parents with babies among the two top adult tables.
Noone wants to pay $50 for brunch per person and listen to screaming baby instead of the music harph offered at brunch.

This is not a dinig venue for small children/ babies.

Questionable management decisions since Martiott bought Intercontinental. Last Sunday at least. Spoke to the supervisor about sitting all in obe cluster rathervthan spacing guests out at the open tables.

Place needs flowers as before. No flowers in a dining room
Big brown table empty in the middle of the resraurant.
No flowers in the bar area. Empty big brown table. Either remove it or place the flowers.

Lilian is the most attentive and most efficient service person at this restaurant.

Tables too close to each other to have a normal conversation especially 2 top tables located in the second row to the windows.

We went for a birthday brunch,just the immediate family. Food was set up as buffet. Excellent food. $$-$$$. There was a variety of food, and lots of it. There was a waffle and omelet corner. They were very generous with the omelets and waffles, as well. The food was not French, it was American and some Italian. The atmosphere was relaxing. I was told the Mimosas were very good and I found the coffee and juice quite tasty, and endless. Some people brought their small children. The restaurant was a little difficult to find. It's located inside the Intercontinental Hotel. Enjoy!

Christmas Brunch $$$$ - Very outdated with limited creativity. Cold and unappetizing food. Service was horrible. We were seated and eating for more than 20 minutes before we could get drinks. Sadly it was not very busy as it has been in years past. With quality and service on the decline it was easy to see why.

Thanksgiving Brunch - 1) Long line just to register and enter even with reservations; 2) Ambience was bare bones - band was not even playing Xmas music; 3) Best serving station was the breakfast station - for other stations there was no dressing; no pumpkin pie (although there was a placard for it); meat carving station has on little bit of ham with no replacement in sight; portions given were small (although you could ask for more); 4) service was almost nonexistent; constantly had to summon servers for clearing of plates; drink refills; replacement flatware.
Overall a very overpriced buffet - looked like they were scrimping in all areas. Going to Gaylord next year - more expensive but worth the extra money!

We had a party of 6 for Thanksgiving lunch. We were seated at a table regularly used for 4. We were touching each other's arms and we are not large people! The cloth napkins were not clean. The silverware was not clean. The food was not hot but like warm ! There was no pumpkin pie when we were ready for desert. A total disappointment! Over $500 spent. Never will go back to this event!!

Thanksgiving brunch buffet. Very pleasant experience. Food was fair to excellent depending on the dish. Don't take that as a criticism. The range of available dishes was very extensive and overall very good. At our table, only one dessert drew negative comments. Ambiance is "deluxe ballroom" which means nothing fancy except for live music being provided. (Our guests particularly enjoyed the live music.) We were there 2.5 hours, never felt rushed and enjoyed excellent service by an attentive staff the entire time. Will most likely go again next year.

Old school "everything" Sunday buffet was excellent! Bottomless mimosas and bloody marys make this a great win. We've been looking for a buffet like this for ages, and discovered it only while staying at the Intercontinental. Definitely won't be our last visit. One caveat: they automatically added an 18% gratuity for our table of 6. That's so bit excessive for a help-yourself buffet.

we were placed in the back corner with full sun, and no ventilation. several in my party of 8 were sweating. we opted to move to another location at the table behind the check in station. This location too was very warm with little circulation of air. The air was on and other locations within the dining room were cool. We were compensated 20% on our bill, but sadly that made the whole experience underwhelming.

We had planned to try their interesting menu but because there was a group being hosted by the hotel we were only permitted to choose an Italian buffet. Sadly, the buffet was cardboard chicken and penne with vodka sauce that was all pasta and hardly any sauce. Very disappointing.
