We stopped there for dinner yesterday. We both had the Soup and salad bar. The soup was fabulous and the salad bar was plentiful. Excellent!

Ate here recently and found the whole experience a huge disappointment! Unimaginative menu and over cooked food in drab surroundings. The only good thing were the lovely, charming attentive staff.

Been here several times without any disappointment. Make your own salad bar, hard to find nowadays, with lots of selections! Serving seafood and great steaks with great service. Can not beat it for a great meal at at reasonable price.

besides an awesome salad , the food was wonderful. the King crab legs were larger than the plate. the desserts awesome and the view sitting along the window watching the canals and wildlife was the best place to sit.

Was visiting and had some relatives who live in the area recommended this restaurant. Did some research on line and liked what the reviews said. Good food, great staff and the salad bar was a hit.

Didn't make it on time for the early bird. Salad bar is comparable to Shoney's. A lot to choose from but mediocre. Service was good.
