I went here to get something for lunch that I could eat without regret and this place delivered. Greate food and plenty of choices. I easily could have gotten the normal fried or burger type lunch here also, but there was plenty of more sensible options to shoose from that looked great.

This Marie Callender's has a gigantic interior with a lobby and pie assortment counter in the middle. Rooms on either side of the restaurant sport a pizza parlor meets plant nursery decor. Along the walls of these rooms are classic tall booths with palm tree tropical pictures and a few stained glass windows in the ceiling. Around the corner from the lobby is a large, wood, wild-west style bar and down the hallway is a conference room.

We go here for our birthdays and anniversary to take advantage of a $5.00 off coupon and a free slice of pie, except fruit pie, with each entrée. Corn bread with sweet butter is complimentary with a meal.

I recommend the mouth watering top sirloin steak special with caramelized onions, mushroom and garlic herb butter. The 8 ounce steak dish also comes with tasty mashed potatoes loaded with smoked bacon, chives, sour cream and cheese. This plate is topped with asparagus. Another one of our favorite dishes worth trying is the chicken and broccoli fettuccine perfectly blended in a parmesan, romano and asiago alfredo sauce.

Chocolate lovers will like the rich chocolate satin pie with a darker chocolate cookie crust topped with real whipped cream. Another delicious choice is the chocolate cream pie, which is made not only with chocolate cream, but also blended with creamy vanilla custard. I have always found the Marie Callender pie crust superior in taste and beyond comparison to other pies.

Just like any other Marie Callendar. Nothing special.
