We ordered the two racks of baby back ribs and split it between us:) Our server split the salad and veggies for us, too. It was a huge order and plenty for two:) We finished our meal with key lime pie and a yummy Hersey bar topped brownie. Our server was very attentive and kept us in sweet tea and... More

We come here at least once a month just to have their chicken fingers. The appetizer portion is perfect for one with a side dish. These chicken fingers are so juicy and tasty! We enjoy their green beans as a side dish...mmm good! Prices are reasonable especially for the quality and portions.

Nice atmosphere, clean, bright and wide open. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking. But Food is only fair at best. Salads are Great, oyster po-boy, fish po-boy are very fishy tasting and dried out, roast beef sandwich was dry and bland. A little pricey for Lunch. Stick with Salads!

I liked the steaks but did not like the limited choices. Not many healthy eating choices. The staff was ex good and the beer was cold.

This restaurant has excellent food, but is a little pricey for lunch...hard to get by for less than $10. My favorite is the soup and salad. I recommend the chili along with the salad and house dressing! The dinners are also great and moderately priced.

Went with Family because they wanted Prime Rib. First of all, the House Salad is Awesome with the Hot bacon and Honey Mustard dressing! It could be a meal in its self. Ham, bacon, eggs, almonds and etc. I had the Shrimp pasta and it was good, but do not think I would order it again. One of the people... More

We ate here after trying to eat at nearby restaurants and there was an hour or longer wait. There was no wait at California Dreaming. The Mojito cocktail I ordered was yummy. The side salad that I got with my dinner was very good; well above average, and the chicken with mashed potatoes I had for my entree was tasty... More

Was a bit disappointed with the quality of food per value. Portion size was great. My friends had checken tenders and it was salty. Service was excellent and the ambiance was great.
