“High price Low quality”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Atmosphere was nice but it was the worst experience of our lives. Bruschetta, mashed potatoes and asparagus were so cold when served butter would not melt on them. The white sauce was Campbell’s for certain. Soup was strange at best and the Prime Rib though cooked right was thin and stringy. The Cabernet was low quality, coffee had a burnt taste, and the Betty Crocker cake was drizzled with Hershey’s syrup. Our server tried but was new and did everything possible wrong. It was an expensive, horrible experience sadly on Valentine’s Day.

“Try The VIP Room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Off the beaten path and not a franchise restaurant. This is a lunch or dinner you will enjoy and remember. A great place to meet a friend or client. It passes the all important test "would I return"? YES!

“Great food, perfect for laid back business lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

I had no idea this restaurant was tucked away inside this building but boy am I glad I know it’s there now! Had a business colleague I had to meet and we wanted a place to meet for lunch that would not be loud, crowded and looking to hustle us out the door. The best surprise was how lovely the staff was and the food was excellent!

“Consistently Good Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

I have been eating at the VIP Room for a number of years-consistently good food, modest pricing, and excellent service. Highlights include the daily soup selection (including the best Tomato Basil soup I have had anywhere), great quiches, wonderful salads, and really nice daily specials (the latest was a great Chicken Fried Steak).

Highly recommended.

“Good Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

After eating the health challenging fare in the farming communities, the VIP was a welcome relief. Finally I had choices that were not all fried. The service was mediocre, and I love the fact that this restaurant is in a restored beautiful old building.
