This restaurant is a fixure in Kalamazoo, close to Western Michigan University. I have always enjoyed eating here. The restaurant has a nautical decor, with cozy fireplaces and low ceilings. I hope they don't change the decor to try to be more contemporary. That would be a shame. Not all restaurants need to look like a sunset in Italy or a trendy and noisy warehouse.
The big draw for me here is the salad bar. It's very hard to find a good salad bar these days, and this one is excellent. If you remember good salad bars from the 70's and 80's, you will be right at home. The salad bar is also reasonably priced, and could be a meal in itself. The last two visits I also ordered the fish tacos, which were very good. In the past I have usually ordered the white fish, which I have always liked.
Prices have been creeping up, so we tend to only eat there on special occasions. However, we have recently committed to eating there once a month. I've realized that if you like a restaurant, esp. a locally owned one, you need to patronize it more than once or twice a year if you expect it to stay in business.
