“amazing food amazing service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We were driving home from Florida and were looking for somewhere to eat. So we decided to take the first exit we found off interstate 75 and the first place we saw was California dreaming. As soon we entered, we were shown to our table. Our waiter Matt W came over and took our drinks order, and then returned shortly after with our drinks. He was friendly, funny and helpful, a real asset to this place. The food menu is excellent and a large selection to choose from. I ordered the hot vegetable salad and I have to say it was delicious. It was a huge portion and a great selection of warm veggies are served on a bed of lettuce. My son had the chicken Parmesan and he really enjoyed it. All I can say is that the staff are friendly and knowledgeable very attentive and the food is excellent. The best part is that the food is good quality and not too expensive.

“Dream Southeast!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We went to the one in Charleston, SC & Columbia, SC. Great food and atmosphere with a unique building. Food is good with a large choice menu. Service is good and the Charleston restaurant has a great view of the inner river leading to the harbour.

“Good food, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

I liked the food, the attitude. Seasonal interior.

Sticky table surface however made it feel a bit dirty.
Would go there again and try a different table ;-)
