“Weekly visit for us!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I love this place. The only negative I can say is that most of the soups either have gluten, dairy, or are tomato based (all of which I cannot eat). I can eat the French onion, just wish they had it all the time. The salad variety is outstanding and I love the different ethnic themes they have. I have some serious food allergies, but can always find something at Sweet Tomatoes. You will definitely not go away hungry. If you are so inclined, they have a variety of breads (the whole wheat is to die for!!), with real butter. They also have a dessert bar which the kids will love. You can make your own ice cream concoction with different toppings. Fruit, jello, cottage cheese, etc. is also available. The food is fresh and I never have "after effects" from additives or chemicals like other restaurants use. Sign-up for the Club Veg and get coupons through e-mail. Thank you Sweet Tomatoes!

“LOTS of options and good ones too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Like a typical buffet with LOTS of options on salad bar, soups, breads, deserts. Overall quality was pretty good, staff was very friendly and price was reasonable.

“Fresh!”

We always love this chain. Very clean, great food with so many fresh and made from scratch choices. Even ice cream and fresh fruit for dessert. The soups are always great too.

“Not just salads...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

My wife loves salads and every time we come to Ft. Myers, she mentions that she wants to come here but we never seem to make it. This time we made the effort and are glad we did. The salad bar is extensive with everything you could want and then some. Unlike many salad bars I've visited, this one is kept VERY clean. The extras; pasta, breads and such are very good. We were disappointed that there was no French Onion soup (our favorite). THis has been added to our "Go To" list.
