Best Salad bar

I've never visited before a salad bar, but this was a different and really good experience for some who doesn't likes green. I totally recommend it.

Not sure who is running this place anymore, but the cleanliness and service have definitely gone down. Messy buffet areas, servers and kitchen prep are socializing, and not a manager in sight.

I'm not all that into vegetarian food, salads and all that, but I went here with a friend who is a vegetarian. I think the best thing about this place are the soups. Love the broccoli & cheese soup! Fantastic. Everything else is so-so but I think that may just be me, since I am a meat eater. My friend... More

This restaurant was wonderful! The prices were reasonable, the food was fresh, healthy and delicious, and the service was friendly! Trifecta! The salad bar was well-stocked with an assortment of toppings. The soups were amazing. The bread was delicious. I only wish all quick-service restaurants offered this sort of health-fare, reasonably priced, with excellent service. I will definitely return!!!

I went here with my daughter and two of the younger grandchildren. It was a big hit with the grandkids because they could choose what they wanted from a large variety of foods and drinks. I was happy because they had healthy choices instead of the usual fast foods. My daughter and I enjoyed the salads, soups, and breads. Everything... More

Start your tray with a variety of fresh salads and a choice of toppings with dressing. Continue to hot breads, rolls, pasta and delicious soups. Maybe a slice of pizza or two. Drinks of your selection and find an always clean table for any size party. Relax and enjoy your meal. Be sure to leave room for dessert. Maybe a... More

Sweet Tomatoes is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. I have been to a couple of different locations. I love that they have Gluten-free options. I have wheat allergies and sweet tomatoes is one place that I know I can eat at. I would like to see more gluten-free options as far as soups go. I have enjoyed... More

Remember those 1970's salad bars? They seemed to be everywhere back then. Those days are back again at Sweet Tomatoes. You can build your own healthy salad with all the trimmings here. There are soup, bread and dessert choices too. The food is very healthy so we found this stop great for travellers. Don't come here looking for meat though.... More

Super fresh extensive salad bar. Large selection of wonderful soups. Many warm bread selections From corn bread to focaccia bread and everything in between. A few basic sweet endings such as pudding, fruit and low fat soft serve with toppings. Very reasonably priced. Friendly and helpful employees.
