Salad buffet offered good selection

Very nice hostess/cashier with a robust salad buffet. In addition pizza, soups and soft serve ice cream were offered. All you can eat salad and pasta buffet for a reasonable price. Very similar to other similar establishments. Clean facility and outdoor seating.

This place is usually busy, but you get a table always. The service is excellent and they cleanup the place always very quickly. Of course they send so many coupons once you sign up for the veg club

They always have a great selection of salads. Typically Caesar, Chinese Chicken Salad, and the specialty salad. Sometimes the specialties are really good other times less so. But you can make your own salad with a long table full of fresh ingredients. Plus good soups, muffins, pasta, baked potatoes, and desserts.

Its great for lunch or dinner. Healthy salads and fast moving crowds. They have a good array of comfort soups and breads. I love their baked potatoes. Its bit noisy, but hey.. its family and kids friendly!

I love a good buffet. This place never lets me down. Great food, they keep the place clean. I wish they could expand the place. It's always packed, but they still seem to get you thru the line in under 10 minutes.

Eating here is similar to eating at a cafeteria, but food is decent for the price and there are so many options! Went on a Thursday at 2 p.m. and they were very busy but there is plenty of seating and much room for patrons to move about. Recommend!

A huge amount of options, and all you can eat. It was clearly a local favorite as there were a lot of people there. The food was okay, what you would expect from a buffet type place. Some of the salads were delicious, while others were average. Staff were polite and courteous. Overall an okay experience

This all-you-can-eat soup and salad bar has a wide variety of items, Always fresh produce and at least six soups plus pasta, breads and desserts. Enough to fill the hungriest tummies without breaking the bank. Place is always clean - a must when food sits out.

The food is simple and fresh. Go for the salads and soups. I love eating here several times a year. The price is a little high but coupons are available most of the time on the Internat.
