The Market Yard Grille, an American Bistro Style Restaurant and Bar, located in the American Hotel. Open 7 days for lunch and dinner until 11:00 pm, late night Tapas menu till 12:00 midnight and fabulous Sunday Brunch. Facing Main Street, the old world charm of the restaurant is reminiscent of a New York style steak house. Guests can enjoy a cocktail in the restaurant bar or while sitting with friends in front of the fireplace in the Lobby Lounge.
The contemporary menu offers a tantalizing variety featuring steaks, seafood and bistro-style dishes. Favorites include the Market Yard Seafood Cocktail, the Tomahawk Rib Eye Steak, Mussels and Andouille Sausage, Steaks, Chops and Seafood, all with a delicious selection of sides.


The Tapas menu offers guests a smaller sampling of our chef's creative style. Favorites here are the famous Bento Box Sampler, Chopped Filet Tartar and Cajun Rubbed Ribs.

The Market Yard Grille also features Happy Hour every day from 4:00 to 6:00pm.

Great restaurant for a fun night out. Bartenders are polite and proficient. Foo choices are amazing - there is something for everyone! Live music made the end of the night even more fun. I would not recommend this place on a Saturday if you want intimate conversation, but it is a fabulous restaurant for a night out with friends or a quiet date night during the week.

Overpriced. The filet mignon was so tiny and tough, how is this possible?
The food was bland and wasn't seasoned at all.

Place was very busy in the catering end which I believe affected the kitchen in the restaurant. Service was terrible. Bus girl didn’t understand any English and the waiter never once came over to the table, except to bring the bill.

Reservation was for 7:30, we sat and ordered immediately. Appetizer didn’t come until 8:05 and dinner wasn’t served until 9:00. Steaks were over cooked.

We go to this restaurant quite often and have never been skunked like this. We also never went on a Saturday night like we did this particular evening.

We love their Sunday brunch. $10 carafe of bloody Mary’s and mimosas are great for the $38 buffet. When we arrived for our 12:30 reservations was no omelette chef it anyone at the carving station. He came out later and he was the only one for both stations.

Absolutely take advantage of half price wine night I think its Wednesday but call ahead if Joey is working the bar, he's excellent. Sit there or get a table. They also have booths. Haley was our server and she was also wonderful. Knew the menu, the specials and when we asked she gave us her opinion on the specials. We had the artichoke hearts as an appetizer my wife added steak to her salad and she asked if my wife preferred Filet or NY Strip. How's that for service?

Our waitor, Jim, was outstanding and catered to my friends at I on NYE-to our every annoying whim! The meal was delicious-surf and turf for the win-and we finished with picture perfect desserts. Really delicious and worth every penny. I enjoyed that the owner stopped over to our table to check-in and welcomed us...really nice table touch. The ambiance is perfect and classy - really well done American Hotel! I will be back!

The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars was the person who checked us in with our reservation. He did not acknowledge us nor did he speak to us. It felt like we were bothering him. Everyone else was outstanding as was the food.

Found this on opentable while looking for a place to have thanksgiving with my family ( a 94 yo in a wheel chair, 4 other adults and 2 kids under 4). it more then exceeded our expectations - besides everyone there being accommodating with high chairs, wheel chairs, etc. the staff was so attentive. the food --- unbelievable. I cook and struggle going out for holidays - I think that the meal was as good if not better then if I cooked myself. They had a great amount of options for kids - then the dessert table.. unreal. overall just a fantastic experience. We were fortunate enough to spend some time with the owner of the hotel - we kept telling him how happy we were to have found this gem!

Last minute we decided to book a table here with another couple. The drinks were great, the burger is the best. You just can’t go wrong with the American Hotel. If you just want to hang at the bar or grab a bite to eat it’s a friendly lively place with good food.

Wednesdays are always the night to go to Market Yard Grill as all bottles of wine are half-price and there are seafood specials.
Tonight, our server, Gary, provided EXCELLENT service tonight....the best I have encountered in the past 5 years!! He was both engaging and efficient .... Our glasses were never empty and dishes/cutlery were always fresh.

I was not impressed. The restaurant was relatively empty on Sunday @6:30 pm. It took 3 tries for my drink order yo come properly. The rare tuna came out too well done for one of my friends and potatoes were served to another when they ordered vegetables instead of potatoes. The restaurant made good on serving the correct food. They made no attempt at substantially apologizing by comping a meal or even a dessert. I see no reason for the multiple errors affecting 3 out of 6 diners in one party.

This place can be very noisy on weekends and Thursday nights. But on a Sunday evening it is only modestly busy and very nice and relaxing. Good for Sunday family dinner.
