“Delightful menu, Locally owned”
Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant is tucked next to a Best Western and off I 85 a bit so you might not think to stop. But the unassuming location hides a good local restaurant with a delightful menu. We tried it for lunch and were treated to an icy cold and crisp Caesar salad with just the right amount of dressing that was perfect. They have many options but we succumbed to the burger. It was on a ciabatta style warmed bun, cooked medium rare as requested and the selected topping of caramelized onions was very well done-- cooked just till sweetness developed. The dessert menu was creative but solidly American but alas we were too full to try. Service was friendly, attentive but not falsely so.

“Overpriced Average Fare! Not Clean!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Overall very disappointed from seating, to service, to food and especially cleanliness. Just not good all around! We arrived early with many good tables available but we were offered seating in the middle with high traffic. For a well dressed attractive young couple on a date a more intimate booth off to the side would have been more appropo. Place was pretty empty at that time so I think they were using us as show ponies....sort of putting us on display, Don't like being used for their benefit as our comfort should be their paramount concern. Watched them wipe the chairs and then the table tops with same rag. Our silverware was than placed directly upon the bare table top, no napkin, just the same table that was cleaned with a rag that went from wiping seating surfaces to eating surface - you get the picture, gross! We moved to another table and requested new silver and napkins upon which to place the silver. The menu is pretty limited and the quality was average at best, but definitely overpriced for quality/quantity. They keep the lights low for a reason as if you look closely you can see it is not clean and the salad bar is like eating out of a trough with 50 of your new friends. As much as we now know about the filth of shared feeding troughs (salad bars) its amazing to see one in what is trying to be an high-end eating establishment. Overall we'd just have to call it a complete Fail! Try Village grill - It's about as good as Burlington has to offer and they are sincerely concerned about cleanliness.

“Nice ambiance, and great presentation of the food”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Quiet subdued setting. Slight disappointment with my meal, in that the edges of my fish were somewhat dry. Other meals in our group were excellent.

“Okay- expected more”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

After reading the reviews , we were anxious to try this restaurant in our new area- especially since it had a salad bar.
The menu offered a good selection. However, the salad bar is not included with any entree. If you order a steak dinner, or any other entree. you get one side dish. T he salad bar, or a side salad, can be added for $4.95. The salad bar is not that great- just normal salad essentials- with potato salad. There are more extensive salad bars at lesser restaurants and for free.
The food was good but I expected something more.
I don't know if I would go out of my way to go again.
