Great salads!

Absolutely love going to Rainbow Gardens for their delicious salads. I have tried other sandwiches and meals from here and they have all been delicious. I always love stopping in for a healthy option. Definitely a must try.

Lunch at Rainbow gardens was a pleasant affair. The restaurant has some really nice views of the Milford Green. The waitstaff were friendly and efficient. The interior reminds you of the seventies. It's definately starting to show its age. Probably could use some updating. The food. We had three different salads and one wrap. The salads were plentiful but not... More

Great place to hold a small gathering or group lunch. I had the meatloaf at it was delicious. Definitely not like most meatloaf as it seemed to be grilled and had some unique flavors. Solid showing though.

We went for dinner early on a Saturday night. The place was about half full. We were seated almost immediately and then waited for a waitress. After about 15 minutes one appeared, took our drink order and disappeared. Another 15 minutes went by,we got our drinks and she disappeared again. She returned in about 10 minutes, took our dinner order... More

Came in to eat on a busy holiday. Found a seat at the bar and ordered my food without delay. Most of the other local bar/restaurants nearby had lines to the door, there was no problem getting in here and getting a seat. This is more of a restaurant than bar and that was why it had more availability on... More

Sandwiches and quiche are both really good. Love the rainbow chips and fries, too. Service is good. The bar area is quite nice. Always have a very nice meal when I come here with family and friends. Every time my sister visits from Florida, she wants to eat at Rainbow Gardens.

This review is based on one visit, two entries, one appetizer and a dessert. I have had many angel hair pasta during my days here on earth, but I have never had one as bad as this. The sauce was a gravy like sauce that was totally unexpeted. The other entry was a supposedly steak dish that had similar sauce... More
