Restaurant has been sold many times over the years. Grilled Chicken was tough and chewy. Was encourage by a friend to give it another try. We were disappointed in our visit.

I called the establishment to use the Library room (for 20 or less guests). Ron told me the room is $75/hr. (for 2 hours). I have to give them an EXACT head count and if I exceed that number it is a $20-25/per person charge....He never mentioned gratuities...I guess that would be additional..and just think we have even eaten anything. I have received good feedback about this restarant but this does not make me feel comfortable supporting them. No worries...I am checking with another resturant...NO FEES just will order off menu. **In all fairness this was NOT a visit. I was just trying to set up an event.More

We stopped by for a quick steak and salad after a round of golf. Even though they were very busy on Saturday night, including some large parties, we were still quickly seated in one of the last seats back near the bar. As busy as...they were, the service was excellent and our server was very attentive. My salad was great as was my glass of Cabernet. I tasted my husbands NY Strip Steak and it was a perfectly cooked medium and it was very tender and tasty. We had a great experience.More

Just left Cutting board for my cousins 50th birthday party in a private banquet room and went to the bar with another relative and when we walked in the bar being 2 black women all we heard was shh shh shh shh shh…. I asked...my cousin did she hear that and she agreed yes and we both shook our head and it’s sad to say but she said that doesn’t surprise me… so obvious they were talking about “black people”???? Not mad at the restaurant just mad at the fact that in 2022 we still act like this being GROWN… just had to vent but I will not go back. Nothing against the restaurant at all but the bartender and her patrons turned me off!!!!More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. I enjoyed the salad bar the first time, but this time I ordered lunch off the menu. What a mistake. It was pretty bad. I ordered appetizers that just weren't enjoyable at all. The bang bang shrimp...tasted like it was cooked in old/burnt oil. The best thing on the plate was the lettuce. The mozzarella sticks had a thick breading with little flavor. I was so disappointed!More

My husband and I went there Saturday, June 19 for the prime rib because we wanted prime rib for our anniversary and we were referred to The Cutting Board. We were slow to be seated even though there was no line, the service was slow,...and the prime rib was well done although we ordered it rare to medium rare. We sent it back before the waitress even left the table. She took back the steaks but left the plates with potatoes and bread on them. We then got the replacement steaks which were room temperature, tough, and unseasoned. We couldn't eat them. We talked to the manager who took the steaks, apologized , and tried to charge us for salad bars which we did not get. She then charged us for our sides and drinks. We won't go there again.More

At one time. this restaurant was excellent but no more. Ice tea is barely tea and mostly water. They have removed their HOME MADE blue cheese dressing and r replaced it with lousy dressing out of the bottle. In addition, many of the waitresses are...so busy sitting at the bar in the bar room laughing and carrying on conversations, they forget the customer is waiting. In addition, waitresses walk around with their cell phones in their faces instead of concentrating on WORKING. They have never been taught that the customer is the one who produces their paycheck! Stay away from this place or you will be disappointed!More

My current husband of 40 years took me to the Cutting Board on our first date. The old building burned down and it was closed for several years. I was so happy when the new one opened. The salad bar is awesome. Chuckburgers are cooked...to perfection. The steaks can be hit or miss. Service is always good.More

I absolutely love the cutting board , right now they have a limited menu due to Covid so they’re only making certain items and as far as the salad bar you’re not able to get up and get your own salad the people who are...waiters for you go up and make it how you want it. The food is absolutely amazing and will leave you for every time. Our last waitress was a little lost and we had to keep telling her what we wanted and she would bring the wrong things and forget what we said but the food was overall great.More

The Cutting Board has a great salad bar, every time I've gone there, I've had no complaint. I've tried the steak and grilled chicken, so good. The salad bar is my favorite, such a variety of veggies, fruits, etc... The host are friendly, and polite.

I came here years ago with my family and expected the same quality when I returned this time with friends for their birthday. That was my first mistake. We called ahead about a reservation, as the group was expected to be roughly 20, and the...person on the other end confirmed that a reservation would be possible and that seating would be available at 7pm. The group, now closer to 15 people on account of a few unable to come, began arriving at 6:45 and waited for over an hour before actually being able to get to a table. The hostess offered drinks while we waited and several members of our group waited at the bar, so the wait was not a big deal at that point. We were finally seated at about 8pm. The salad plates and drinks took nearly 30 more minutes to appear. I understand that we were a fairly large party, but we had two waitresses, both of which honestly seemed less than enthusiastic to make our night any shorter. A member of our party walking to the salad bar nearly fell on account of water on the sloped walkway that no one bothered to mop or mark with a wet floor sign. After waiting yet another hour, our food was delivered and almost everything was cold. Several members of our party cancelled their orders in the meantime and either opted for the salad bar or simply expected to eat somewhere else after the fact. One bowl of mashed potatoes was flipped completely upside down and did not move because it had been sitting so long. The husband of the birthday girl retrieved a manager and began expressing how displeased we were with the meal. The manager in question argued with and literally shouted over the points trying to be explained, including the fact that they evidently had never accepted reservations in as long as she had been working there. Unsure if the terminology "reservation" was confused by the hostess on the phone for "call ahead seating," which apparently was restaurant policy, but absolutely did not warrant yelling at guests on behalf of the manager. After everyone in the party chimed in and explained that we were not interested in waiting any longer for another set of meals, the manager huffed away and began correcting and dividing the checks. She and the other employees, once again, kept us waiting for the checks for well over 15 minutes and could be heard discussing the situation loudly among themselves at the expense of the integrity of our party. The husband and I, now very frustrated, went outside to his car to smoke when a member of the staff approached us and engaged in a verbal altercation. He then went inside claiming that my friend threatened him. Several members of the party started outside to assess the commotion. The manager and a cook began shouting at our party to leave immediately. The mother of the husband, who had been in the middle of a transaction, was physically barred from returning into the restaurant to retrieve her debit card by way of the manager holding the door closed from the inside and continuing to shout over her. For the high prices that they charge, I was expecting good service and a good meal. Never in my life have I met such a rude manager and an unruly staff on a Saturday night. I will never return here.More

A bunch of us have had an annual get together there...always very accommodating, great food and great service. Bartenders can be very creative in a positive manner...food is always great and the salad bar is superior..Selections from the menu are well-presented, tasty and most ample...portions. I cannot think of any negatives. Great place, will be there again!More
