Great, healthy, interesting food

What a mound of Butter Leaf lettuce on my plate! I ordered the Backyard Steak Salad. It was wonderful. Meat cooked to perfection. Very little carbs. Also ordered Cheese tray with 4 very different cheeses. Toast included with tray and dinner. Delicious stuff.

This is a cafeteria style restaurant where you move down the line after ordering. However, the best cafeteria in town. I am hooked on this place. The harvest salad with the chicken is my favorite. The chicken is so juicy and the salad so fresh. I do not live in the area and go out of my way to find... More

The concept of fresh & healthy is wonderful even if the kitchen did put two big slices of bread on both Gluten Free salads. Sigh! Pleasant patio but jet planes pass very close overhead frequently, making conversation tricky.

Enjoyed our dinners. I had the Thai octopus salad and my wife had the Cobb salad with tarragon dressing, both very good. Everything was extremely fresh and prepared in view.

This restaurant has a great reputation for a good reason. It has a limited menu of excellent food, and food made to order while you wait. They are able to do this in an amazingly organized and speedy manner. Wine and beer served, as well as teas.

I was visiting and had never heard of Tender Greens. Delish! They even had an octopus salad. Everything is fresh and reasonably priced. You order at the counter and then bring food to your table yourself.

They don't skimp on the greens and you can see everything being made right in front of you. It seemed busy but the food came out really quick. Friendly staff and convenient location!
