“been there done that never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Soup of the day chili. I've wanted to clone Hormel chili. Either they have cloned it or they served me out of a can. I'd guess the later. Reuben so dry. Where's the juice. Meet is sticking to my teeth. Did they forget the sauce. Oh by the way the bread is crunchy tearing up the roof of my mouth. For three days after the meal I have meat shreds hanging from my mouth cavities. Don't forget your coat, the place has no heat or very little. I expect that is to compensate for the lack of customers, they can't pay the bills.

“This is an amazing building”

Check out the building that offers everything from a coffee house to great dining. The old opera house still stands and they even have an art exhibit.

Seems like things are kinda' in disarray. I have been there many times - the opera house itself is fantastic - but the visiting experience not so great.

“Fantastic Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

I liked how they are renovating this cool old building. I also appreciated the exhibits they offered such as King Tut and the dinosaur exhibit. I took my students on a field trip to thse places. They also have a neat wildlife display on the main floor. Great gift shop.
