“Hidden treasure for sure”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

You have to work a bit to find this wonderful place, but the search is worth it. In a strip mall. The chef is a regional legend so it should not be surprising that the food is first-rate. Salad bar sets a singular standard for that staple, as it is not even the same idea as others by that name. Seafood is perfectly prepared. Sides are each worthy of being featured and attentively prepared. Presentation is lovely but not silly, as many have come to be. Been there for both lunch and dinner and recommend both. Great staff and atmosphere as well as great food.

“Limestone Restaurant”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We were a party of eight. We asked for and received four separate checks. Service seemed a little slow for a Wednesday night that was not crowded. However the service was good and knowledgeable. Food was excellent. The owner graciously took group pictures. We will definitely return.

“Poor lighting, very predjudice”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

I visited here on a business trip with a colleague, we had been out all day working and visited the local zoo. Parked up and had a walk round so wasnt exactly dressed to impress. All of the shutters were down so we had a look through doors to try and see a choice of menu. However we went in, got looks off the staff that could kill. Was passed a very intimidating wine menu which had some extremely priced wines on it. We had not even been offered a food menu. We both felt extremely embarrassed by the reaction of the staff. We continued to stay for a meal which i must say was only average for the price of it. I have dined in some finer places than this and had much more welcoming reaction from staff and not as expensive. The lighting was really poor too, virtually in the dark. The staff was constantly watching over seeing what we was doing. The rushed our servings and appeared that they just wanted us too leave or thought we were going to run without paying. From an international travelling to this area I would certainly not recommend this rude prejudice establishment.

“Buffet at midday”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is a very fun place to eat. Lunch is served buffet style, but this isn't your average buffet. Dinner is served by a wait staff. Elegant casual decor compliments the quality food. Party room is available.

“NICE”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is a great restaurant when the chef is there. The salad bar is usually pretty good and worth the extra money. The staff is well trained and helpful.
