My wife ordered a large salad and about half way through her lunch a dead cock roach appeared in the salad.

I am sorry that this occurred. I was wondering if you brought it to the attention of one of the Managers? Our restaurant is pretreated for pests on a monthly basis, and we have had no report from guests or our pest control company regarding incidents in or outside of the restaurant. Again, we apologize for this experience.

$2 house liquor specials every night (not sure about the weekends, but definitely Mon-Thr) The atmosphere is very nice, the service was excellent and the food was incredible. They have the absolute best chicken fingers, which I normally would never order, but these are something else. The California Dreaming sauce is fantastic as well, I can't wait to go back!

This was not my first time and it’s still a great place to come and eat. Food and service is consistently great. You can also enjoy the view of the expressway (I-85). There’s a sense of high end dining with good sized portions without the price. It tends to get busy so plan accordingly.

Friends and I gathered at this California Dreaming for a birthday celebration. The staff was nice and accommodating, very patient as our party trickled in. Unfortunately, the staff is the end of the positives. The food was overdone and overpriced. I ordered "roasted" salmon that had clearly been fried (very greasy). Besides being burned, I had to return the first salmon they brought out because it was completely buried in salty seasoning. Sadly the best tasting part of the meal were wings we ordered as appetizers. Based on the quality of the food and the price, I do not recommend.

Also if you have food allergies, be careful. I made them aware of my allergy to almonds and still found them in my salad.
