“Endless Buffet of salad and soup”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We stopped in to this buffet for a late lunch/early dinner on a Saturday. The restaurant was pretty empty which was a little concerning for 330 pm on a Saturday. The salad bar is huge yet it still missed several of my favorite items (ie. green olives, Greek olives, pepperoni, feta cheese). The pre-mixed salads were ok, the best one I tasted was an Asian chicken salad. The soup bar had several delicious selections. The best was a vegetable soup. They also had a black bean chili which is wonderful poured over corn bread. They had several other breads/muffins including corn bread. The Desert selection was ok. The chocolate ice cream was broken but vanilla worked. The hot chocolate lava cake was delicious. The wait staff was timely in clearing old plates from the table. The price was too high at 8.99 each plus 2.39 for drinks.

“Good but not great”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

My wife, sister and I enjoyed a nice meal here but simply weren't blown away. If you're looking for a salad buffet then this is it, however, like other buffets it simply was extraordinary by any means. Could offer more fruit selection to add to salads. Solid but not spectacular.

“Great Selection!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

I have been wanting to try this restaurant for 15+ years and finally was able to. I regret not trying it sooner. The selection is awesome! I am a picky eater and this place had plenty for me to try without getting bored! the only bad thing I have to say is this restaurant is not located in Ohio where I live.

“Amazing Salad and Soup bar”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Great value, the freshest food, friendly staff, and very clean!
The salad bar has everything you could possibly want, along with amazing freshly made soups, a bakery with a fresh assortment of breads, a fresh fruit bar, and deserts.

“So sorry I never went sooner!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

this place has been there for years and we never went. After getting serious about eating right, decided it might be a good idea to check out a salad buffet type restaurant. Holy cow, were we all impressed! Everything is super fresh and as pretty as a magazine picture. So many salad bar items to choose from that you have to go back more than once. For those in your party who don't want just salad, they have pasta, pizza, soups and more. It's become one of our favorite go to places. Fresh baked cookies are brought to your table when the waitress notices you are nearing the end of your meal. The only problem I've ever noted was that they need another coffee pot. seems the coffee is always brewing and you have a to wait for it.
