Was in the area looking for a good salad for lunch. Cedar Garden didn't disappoint! For $7.95 I got a small chicken fattoush salad which was enough to feed 2 people very easily.

I have been to this restaurant many times, it is another local favorite. The staff are friendly and will treat you like family. They serve a variety of authentic Mediterranean foods.

This is my favorite lunch spot. The entire menu in outstanding but I typically order a chicken fattoush salad or chicken shawarma with tabouli and hummus. Both are excellent. Can't close without mentioning the friendly staff and great service, they are the best!!!

Very good authentic Lebanese food at very reasonable prices. The warm bread is wonderful. The garlic sauce "Toum" is exceptional, and so is the Baba Ganoush.
