Good Food

Food and service were good. Something of a casual / sportsbar restaurant. If I remember correctly, there is only one "free" refill on soda pop.

Being gluten, lactose and caffeine intolerant I stay away from Fast Foods so Street Car Named Desire was a perfect venue I thought. The hamburger meat tended to be on the mean side and as they had no gluten free bread I was left with two pieces of meat on my plate!!! Hey guys and gals, some green leaves and... More

We originally were going to go to Milano's but they were closed for a private event. As it was a Sunday and near 7pm, we were looking for a quiet place for supper and this fit the bill. I will admit, it was unusual eating off Styrofoam in restaurant, but the upshot was no massive clanging of bus tubs and... More

The food was average cafe food served on paper plates with real utensils and glassware. Pork tenderloin was fresh, great potato salad, good burgers and average salad. The whole crown point plaza area was busy and we were on a schedule, the staff got us in and served quickly to keep us on schedule and that level of service goes... More

the food was very skimpy, expensive and over all not very good. We were there on Valentine's 2015 and it was so busy in the mall. Just not a good experience. Only get 2 fills on soda and they are small glasses.

We stopped here after seeing the sea life aquarium. The server was terrible. I eat breaded pork tenderloins at most stops and this was was thin and chewy. Not sure why the plates served were styrofoam but it made the dining experience rather odd. I don't recommend.

This restaurant is in an old street car trolley that has been moved to the Crown Center mall. It is well staffed and has an outside area to eat while you watch the shoppers. Food is better than average for a mall. Hearty portions that are more than adequate and free refills on drinks. Staff was attentive and did not... More

We ate here after we visited the aquarium. It was close and the server was very good. The food was horrible and served on Styrofoam plates. Eat elsewhere.
