My daughter lives near here and recommended this restaurant. We went here for lunch. It is a casual place with really good, healthy food. We loved it and will definately go back!

The three times we have gone: Burnt, overcooked meat and vegetables.
The wait was long and their manager or whoever was in charge was not very helpful or particularly interested in our business...
They allow dogs, so....we saw one poop right in front of the restaurant, which did not open my appetite...While the owner went to get something to clean that with, a few people had stepped on the mess and taken it into the restaurant...That was probably the last time we will be there.

We tried this restaurant shortly after it opened but were disappointed by the confusing menu and method of ordering. We had a hard time finding a table and had to eat outside where the breezes were chilly. The food was cold before we sat down.
After several months, we decided to try it again. This time we were equally disappointed. The line was so slow, our food was cold by the time we sat down. The metal chairs are hard and uncomfortable after five minutes. There was such a din of noise, we could not converse with our friends without shouting. The fried green beans were tough and not to our taste. The brussel sprouts were partially burned to charcoal. We felt rushed because people were standing around, trays in hand, looking for a table. The young serving staff that gave us drink refills was friendly but we will not return because dining should be a comfortable experience and this was confusing, noisy, and the food wasn't worth the hassle.

I eat here at least once a week! The Asian chicken salad is to die for! For all you low carb skinny gals get it without the oranges, wontons and bread and you are good to go! Don't forget dressing on the side :) I have tried other items as well...sandwiches are EH kind of on the dry side. Do not try to come here between 12-1pm...it is a mad house!!! Lines are only long if you want a salad. Enjoy! I hope they open up more restaurants like this.
