Pleasant experience

Stopped in here on the 24th. The place is nice enough inside; casual. We were in between lunch and dinner; our service was reasonably prompt and the food pretty good. Prices were not cheap but also not outrageous. One negative item: My wife, who is generally not at all picky about such things... read more

Horrible service, staff spends more time taking care of themselves than customers, watched as they made customers feel like they were in the way instead of paying customers, that alone sent us leaving, no food is worth that atmosphere. A friend went back a couple of months later, did taste the food and is was absolutely nothing special, and he... More

On Sunday a lot is closed, yet I am so glad we choose this place. Even wraps and salads were fresh and fancy. Meat was delicious. Modest place, fabulous food. Friendly folks.

We saw the mixed reviews, and decided to go anyway. We went about 3pm on a Saturday. The place was quiet except for 4 other tables. I expected quick service. (There were more employees working than patrons). We ended up getting it "to go" after 45 minutes of waiting around. The bar was weak - after I explained what a... More

I had been here a couple of times before (about 3 years ago) and had meals that were quite good so, when our first two choices were full on Saturday night, we tried this place (I can't call it a restaurant) again. It was a total embarrassment, particularly as we were entertaining friends from out of town. The place was... More

Went here on Saturday, mid-afternoon looking for some snack food. Place was buzzing with many patrons and friendly staff. All drafts are $5 and they have reasonable food prices. Tried the mushroom risotto ($5.95), made with huge, real mushrooms, not canned! Very tasty and topped with basil, tomato and delicious cheese (though not parmesan). Also had the Caribbean wings ($8.95... More

Just a short walk from the municipal parking lot we found the Soul Mountain cafe. The salads looked very popular from what we saw others ordering, and ours turned out to be excellent. We were sorry to learn they were completely out of the pulled pork, but enjoyed the BBQ chicken platter. Generous portions at fair prices =a good find... More
