I have reviewed the restaurant in the past and not liked it much. We decided to stop again after long layoff and I thought they have improved. Great selection of mixing so to make your own salad, with a good selection of dressing including fat free. The place was packed even on a weekday at lunch. I also had a... More

We are dividing what you get by the price, and the result is a very high number. Particularly addicting were the two special soups, both bisque (I think tomato bisque and squash bisque). The salad makings were excellent, and they even provided unlimited amounts of ice cream. Some of the offerings, such as pizza and pasta, did not appeal to... More

The food was average. It was only after I had paid for my meal, obtained my food and sat down, that I saw a sign above the soups indication they serve beer and wine. I was not asked at purchase if I would like either of these, nor was I asked if I had any discounts or was a senior... More

I do like this salad bar. SO many choices that a lot of places don't have. Everything is always so fresh & constantly refreshed to make sure everything is always full. The soups are usually good. I'm not normally a big fan of buffets, especially when I see kids running around getting food without their parents, sneezing into food, etc.... More

Wow what an amazing experience. You come in through what seems like the back door and pick up a plate and fill up on "salad". Then you pay. Then you sit. Then you get up about 14 times to get soup an interpretation of pizza and drinks as you weave in and out of all the other people doing the... More

When you don't want to cook you can come have a great salad of your own fixing and have a tasty cup or two of soup. There is everything you can think of to top of your salad with, veggies, pickles, olives etc., plus other salads like potato or macaroni, et al. There is pizza and pasta, and of course... More

Soup Plantation has the speciality menu that we all know about and enjoy. Drop in for a great light meal of various soups and build your own salads, plus dessert! Quickie, good & unpretentious. You'll enjoy. ...

Huge selection of healthy fresh food, all buffet. Friendly staff, clean and cheerful place. The only drawback is that if I'm not in the mood for a big meal, you still pay the same flat price. Kids of every age always find something they like to eat so that's a plus for families.
