We stopped here for lunch while on a trip and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and range of food available. I tried 3 of the soups and really enjoyed both the potato and clam chowder offerings. The chicken tortilla soup was a little spicy for me. The sour dough bread was tasty and each of the salad items I... More

Enjoyed the lavish spread of salads with avocado ranch and thousand island. Had a lavish treat of delicious soup. Cream of mushroom and potatoe chowder were extremely tasty. We enjoyed blueberry muffins, baked potatoes, brownie bites and cheesy garlic focaccia. It was an extremely enjoyable experience. No wonder why we preferred to have dinner with family soon after landing in... More

Our friends suggested this restaurant and when I looked it up on the web, they had introduced a new Taco Fajita Bar during only Dinner effective that day which I thought was neat considering I am a non-vegetarian but not disliking salads at the same time. We enjoyed the Salad Bar offerings but I did not find any special items... More

Its pretty standard salad and soup. Great for kids, in fact there were a ton of kids in there the other night. They got me some Kale with no dressing out of the back, it was helpful...I made my salad with that. Lots of choices...

There are baked potatoes breads a few desserts and some pasta so it is a good place to go if you have picky children or things like that. If you're looking for a... More

Not very impressed with the standard fair in the salad bar. Not the place to go if you're into healthy and creative food. Place was filled with single seniors having dinner at 4 pm!

There are plenty of options on the salad bar, and the soups are always hot and tasty. This place always seems busy, so the salad bar items turn over quickly and remain fresh. The staff does a great job of refilling everything. It's not a fancy place, but it's a great option to pop inside for a quick lunch.
