Fast, great food, lots of outdoor seating

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.

...and I was full from a turkey pot pie. Would have been five stars but I don't prefer counter to table places. But I liked it here. Great menu, great choices of mix and match foods, fresh drinks and great staff. It gets busy for lunch with great daily specials. Awesome fresh cut French fries. Reasonable prices and a very...

For once you can go out and have an healthy option for lunch or diner, we selected to visit for lunch and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service overall. The kitchen needs to increase quality control as to ensure the customers do not have wilted lettuce in any salad, in this case it was... More

We love the healthy options of this restaurant. The outside patio is also a great area for kids. We even climbed the tree :)

Great healthy sandwiches. There were so many choices that it was hard to decide. this restaurant is one that you stand in line and order, then they bring you your food. They also have beer and wine. Be aware that you cannot bring wine outside and must consume it inside. This does limit seating options.

Yum! Good food, good service! A little expensive, but portion sizes were huge. It was a little noisy inside, but everyone was enjoying themselves.

Our family stopped here for lunch and had 4 different sandwiches; they were all very good! Service was efficient and staff were a pleasure to talk with. I'd stop here again.

So, we had a vegan, a celiac, and an average person eating in this restaurant. IT WAS GREAT! Huge salads with an option of gluten free bread for sandwiches or on the side. Portobello salad was a big win for the vegan. Great dressing too. Building your own salad and fast service is a big plus.
