We were moving our daughters to CA from MI and saw good reviews from TripAdvisor so we went for lunch. The staff were very patient and helpful explaining the buffet style procedure. The food was plentiful, varied, and tasty. I wished we had this restaurant in MI!

My family and I come here about every six weeks or so. It's a nice change from the other restaurants that we typically frequent and the boys enjoy serving themselves and trying different things out. This is a very family-friendly restaurant and a great selection of veggies and soups and a small grouping of other items such as pasta, muffins,... More

Always found the 'plantation' to be bright and clean. Salad selection (build your own) is very good. It can be a little noisy at times, especially at dinner

There was heaps of food but they sacrifice taste for quantity. The chicken noodle soup, for instance, was almost water with a bit of flavoring and was lukewarm. This is a place to go when you're in a hurry and don't need quality.

This restaurant offers consistently good salads and soups and a very helpful staff. My only gripe is that the managers do not tell parents to control their brats running unsupervised through the restaurant, creating a danger for both the kids and other customers carrying their food.

A Very good place to eat healthy food. They have a wide variety of Salads and soups. They also allow you to indulge by providing some muffins and pizza and garlic bread etc. They also serve ice creams. Best part is that the food is not very expensive and you can eat as much as you would like to.

Variety is the spice of life to this restaurant. I can come here 7 days a week and have a different soup each day, a different salad combination each day and a different bread each day........the combination of food types are plenty. The nice thing is that there are many locations in Southern California. I do not like to waited... More
