My family has been a Plum Garden customer for over 40-years (they opened in 1965). Yes that's a long time, my mother talks about when they were just a pick-up window restaurant. As a family I have memories of our regular visits, and looking forward to a delicious, filling meal. Since the "New Remodel" the quality of food doesn't seem... More

My Wife and I have been going to Plum Garden for Over 20 years. My wife has ordered Lings LoMein Mild with no mushrooms for at least 15 of those twenty years. We actually don't have to order our waitress (the finest we have ever had anywhere!) brings our order without failure and is aware that my wife is allergic... More

We visited our relatives and met at this restaurant for Dinner. It was good, however the menu should say that the famous dish has a shellfish sauce. The food was good but better descriptions about the food would be better.

I have had the opportunity to eat at this establishment on multiple occasions. The first time my family and I ate, we thought it was a fluke.

Great maitais! Food was good, and had a reasonable variety on the menu, although Americanized and Midwesternized (meaning I wouldn't take Chinese customers here) but to be fair, that's because they are serving exclusively American Midwestern customers. (The waitress was literally shocked when we asked for chopsticks!) However, the food was very tasty (eggrolls were good!) and portions generous. Skip... More

Food is not worth the price. The expansion of the restaurant has caused much congestion on Main Street. Better food of the same type can be found elsewhere. If Perry wanted to expand, it would have been better if he'd moved out to Route 31 which has an available, empty spot with plenty of parking.

My husband and I joined my sister-in-law for dinner. She has visited Plum Garden many times and always enjoys her meal, so we gave it a try and were not disappointed. My sister-in-law and I shared the house specialty which is a chicken dish but I cannot remember the name, sorry. It was very good and even though we shared,... More

We went to Plum Garden for the first time in July, 2014. This was our first and only visit, so I can not address the inconsistency mentioned in other reviews. We were a party of five, and all of our meals were excellent. Our party had 1 vegetarian, they have three or four vegetarian items on the menu, and also... More
