Great selections!

We love coming here. They have the most extensive salad bar I have ever seen. Something for everyone. The variety of soups and desserts and other dishes is wonderful. Our granddaughter from Reno craves this place every time she visits. Very friendly staff and the place is always clean.

Sweet Tomatoes is sort of a healthy buffet. Start with your salad bar then move on to soups, breads, and dessert bars. Average tasting food at 1 price. But beware, you can only go through the salad bar once so load up before you pay.

Food is always fresh and delicious. Staff is always friendly and courteous from management to servers. Ambiance is nice (music isn't too loud, lighting is nice, room temperature is comfortable, service areas and tables are cleaned frequently). Prices are reasonable if you sign up to get their coupons via email or find them in the local paper. It's easy to... More

You wouldn't think you could gorge yourself in that amount of soup and salad but I did. They also had some focaccia bread pizza that was pretty good. I also loved the raspberry lemonade. I will go back.

I love the fresh enormous salad bar. There are so many delicious soups to try, The kids love the pizza and pasta bar.. I always force myself to indulge in the desert bar. You can just do it the way you want it and help yourself to as much as you want. Everything is delicious!

My daughter and I stopped by this place for a quick lunch. The Salad bar is amazing with the variety of fresh veggies and lettuces--what an array! Soup is delicious and it's always fun to have their mini soft-serve ice cream for dessert! Nice choices.

My sister in-law and I drove 2 hours to visit this restaurant. One giant salad bar, a soup bar, potato and topping station and an ice cream bar. I was nervous about trying the clam chowder because I am really picky about it. Not to worry though because it was great! You can build your own salad plus they have... More

Most of the selections are vegetarian. My boyfriend was a little disappointed in that, poor carnivore couldn't tear into a steak. But there are soups, chili, and stuff with bacon in it. Just not huge chunks of meat. Perfect for me :)
