The amount of choices offered for one low price is mind blowing. Make sure you come hungry. From the salad bar, to the soup buffet, to the breads, to the desserts, this place is worth every penny. The cornbread is exceptional. They also offer kid friendly choices such as pizza and more. It is fresh and delicious. I wish they... More

My husband and I went to dinner with some friends. We went later in evening around 8 pm. Even at the late hour, the food was all fresh. The salads were amazing. You must try the mushroom Bisque wow it's delicious. The deserts were good too. My favorite was the chocolate chip muffins and the mini ice cream cones. We... More

My daughter loves to come here. There is so much food to choose from and everything is very fresh. This a place to be careful not to overstuff youself.

Who doesn't love Sweet Tomatoes? Favorite drink: strawberry lemonade or a mix of concoctions (half and half tea and lemonade). I love their soup offerings, pizza and bread offerings, and salad offerings. Be sure to come with an empty stomach! And don't forget that you can look up current coupons on Google.

I used to love this place when they opened. I have not been too impressed the last few times I've gone. I think the quality has gone down. Not as many prepared salads. Maybe they have cut back to things that sell well to reduce waste. I notice a lot more soups and bread lately. I usually go elsewhere, but... More

If you are looking for fresh food, that will satisfy your whole family, or group, this is the place. Salads, soups, fruit, potatoes, pasta, pizza, muffins, fresh breads... You can sign up for their emails, and they send you coupons weekly.

Whether you love salads, soups, desserts, pasta or baked potatoes, this place has it all. I never leave hungry and I always pick from a huge selection of items. Great place to visit on hot days when you don't want to cook or if you're just plain tired. This restaurant is our good ol' standby when we don't know what... More

The price is a bit higher than what I'd like to spend on lunch or dinner, so, it's not my go-to place, but, it's definitely a family-friendly, quick place to get a tasty plate of food. I had no idea what Sweet Tomatoes was before I went in. I had overheard some kids saying they wanted to go there, then... More

We had a family group here, have been several times on visits, and as usual, the salad bar was good, but other items like the mac n cheese were very much varied in quality between batches (1st batch was yellow and rich with cheese and granddaughter and all loved it....the 2nd batch was runny, not hot and white appearing, so...
