Fresh and Simple

We often stop at Tin Leaf for a dinner salad or light meal. Order at the counter and the food is served promptly at your table. Popular with locals, the food is fresh and healthy.

After leaving the Omni for the next part of our vacation, we stopped here. The sandwiches were good (I loved the Thanksgiving on a Bun) and prices reasonable. It was a little crowded on Father's Day, but.....that's a good sign.

I ordered the salmon with mashed potatoes and onion straws . All was excellent but onion straws are probably best eaten in house and not to go. My daughter ordered the pork which was good with green beans, not quite cooked enough a little crunchy but maybe some people like them that way and fries which looked great but like... More

Great food, great service, lotsof options, and easy to have food made just as you want it. It is like the old Burger King, "have it your way" but the the food is way better as is the ambiance.

Salad combinations with meat, steak, shrimp and fish. Soups and lots of creative sandwiches. I tried a salmon sandwich, and while everything in it was tasty, I thought the bread was too thick and overwhelmed the rest of the ingredients...no problem, it was great as an open faced sandwich. Entree plates are also available. Pork, salmon, tri-tip, ahi...to name a... More
