We went here with a group of 10...we couldn't have been happier. Part of our group was visiting from Sweden...and they loved it. The food was fantastic. The service was great. If we were back in this area we would definitely eat here again. Ended up with a couple of drinks, appetizers, dinners, dessert and tip-about $35/person. Not bad at... More

Good food, Great service, Reasonably priced. The upstairs seating allows you to look down over the restaurant which can be a nice diversion, but is not easy accessible for anyone physically challenged. Salads are always creative and fresh. The main dishes are flavorful, and the carrot cake is outstanding. You can not go wrong dining here.

I don't expect to have my drink and meal plopped down on the table and have the server act like he's having the worst night of his work... More

Time after time, you can't beat it! The food is outstanding starting with the bread and dipping sauce. I enjoyed the twisted Cobb salad for the 1st time, but everything I ever had here has been very good (crab cake with avacado, Kobe beef burger, farmhouse quiche with potato crust, etc). Truly unique though is the Scottish pudding dessert, don't... More

My first visit to Sweet Lorraines Cafe was to celebrate myanniversary several years ago. The atmosphere and food was superb. The service was even better. Although I find the atmosphere is still decent, both the food and the service leaves much to be desired. After several recent visits to Sweet Lorraines, my final experience left me wishing I had taken... More

The steak salad and the twisted Cobb salad entrees were fresh, spicy and full of flavor. The lemonade was good. We split a delicious, creamy, ice cream sundae for dessert…. That said, it was Saturday evening meal on a holiday weekend. The servers were harried and mistakes were made over and over. Plates of the bread and sauce appetizer were... More

Sweet Lorraine's offers good and moderately priced lunches in a fun atmosphere. Service was good. I especially liked the Truffle Mac and Cheese.

My family and I stopped in for dinner. Glad we did!! Food was so good and our server was very attentive. We were sat right away even on a busy night. Loved their menu. Had options for everyone!! Had a piece of chocolate cake for dessert and was one of the best I have ever had! Will definitely be back!!... More

Our family group of 5 adults dined here on a Monday at 5:00 pm. (It had been about 8 years since we had been here, and its still almost as good as it was!) Only about 4 tables were occupied when we arrived, but the restaurant was more than half full when we left at about 6:15pm. Great place to... More
