The build your own selection of salads, the fresh sandwiches and the lye kettle sized soup bowls make this place a great choice for lunch when on the Plaza. Third time here and I've tried one of each, and each time was very satisfied. They also offer sidewalk seating for nice days of taking lunch outside. This place is worth... More

Great food, fun décor. Nice time for family to relax and talk while enjoying a healthy lunch. Our college graduate and his girlfriend also frequent the restaurant.

Tried this restaurant. Used the restroom and found it less than clean. As people ate and left there were tables sitting with food on them the whole time we were eating. Also, when served our order, which took a while, some of the food slipped and fell on the table. He just said, "sorry" and stood there. Will not be... More

Ingredient has a nice menu with pizza, salads, soups, and sandwiches. I had the Yard Bird hot sandwich and I enjoyed it. I also had the pepper chips, which were kettle chips with a Cajun spice. The service was fine, but didn't feel like they were making much of an effort to be friendly.

Decided to try it because I'm generally a fan of chef owned/operated restaurants that have different menus. This place has an amazing menu, I would just order something other than the turkey burger. My order wasn't right (although they fixed it) and the food was just ok. If you are concerned about price, a burger, cup of soup, and fountain... More

While in town for a training, my team and I headed here for lunch when it was suggested to us by another colleague who is a local. Our lunch was very tasty, and a good value for the $$. The only downside was how dirty this place was. The area that you get your fountain drink, napkins, condiments, and silverware... More

This place used to be great but it's gone way downhill, which explains why it always looks empty now. I was overcharged for a dessert bar, $2 more than what the sign said. When I brought it up, I got attitude and excuses that they didn't know about the sign that was ON THE REGISTER. I was never greeted when... More
