For Soup and Salad a good choice

the salad bar is very large and has a good variety. There are quite a few varieties of soup with toppings available for you to select. There was a very nice whole grain bread as well as cornbread and some honey butter to go with them. Unlimited beverages are available, but you can also get a... read more

This is the largest salad bar I have seen. There are a number of lettuce and greens choices, followed by all the toppings you could ask for. They also have a soup bar, desert bar, as well as pasta selections, foccacia breads with toppings, muffins, potatoes. And they keep everything freshly stocked. I highly recommend the restaurant.

We come here quite a bit and every time we do it is loaded with children running around. I get emails with coupons here so a meal for 2 with a drink is about $22. Usually the staff stays on top of everything but all of the other times we would come on a weekday, today is a Sunday and... More

This is an all-you-can-eat buffet, at roughly 9.50 (weekdays) to 11.50 (weekend evenings) per person, plus 2.49 for unlimited soft drinks/tea/coffee. There's lots of seating, the staff keep the buffet clean, and come and grab your dirty plates as you pile them up. They have a huge salad bar, and a nice selection of pastas, focaccias, soups, and desserts. The... More

I've never been to one so I walked in and there is nobody at the front to greet you and explain the procedures or the prices. I decided to give it a try and got a salad then at the end of the salad bar I was charged. I got the bar and a drink which was over $13. I... More

What a fun experience for veggie lovers! Great selection of salads. The titles on each item said vegan/ gluten free. So, that was an added plus. Fun breads, some pasta and good desserts (even a sugar free mousse!).

One of our regular places to eat. Always a large selection of vegetables, soups, breads and drinks. Always good desserts too. Soups vary by the month not always good, but most are flavorful. Can get discounts by signing up for email club.

I enjoyed eating at Sweet Tomatoes. I was able to get a nice large salad with the add ons that I wanted rather than what the restaurant wants to put on. There is a nice selection of breads/rolls. The food is good and nicely prepared. The main drawback was for the men in my party (husband and son) there weren't... More
