Went there on a Saturday after a busy day. By 7:30 in Delaware, restaurants are generally mopping the floors for the night, but they were still busy. Ordered 3 dinners, 2 off their specials, baked flounder and chicken marsala. Daughter had chicken fingers, seemed to be made fresh, not frozen. All portions huge, but not at the price of quality.
Came with either a cup of soup or salad bar. Side dishes were the one weak spot. Salad bar was not huge, but was well stocked for that time of day. Key ingredients were all there: mixed lettuce (I hate just iceberg), fresh grape tomatoes, cukes, onions, chick peas, peppers,shredded cheese, etc. Also very nice potato salad, cole slaw, macaroni salad and Italian pasta salads. I could go on.
Desserts looked nice, but we never got there. Breakfast also available all day. Service was friendly and attentive. Considering we dropped by in a too tired to cook moment, we will be back or at least for take out.
