Friendly waitstaff who offered great insight into the menu. 55 item salad bar is a bit of an over sell as the “dessert” options (multiple jellos) don’t really count!!

Can’t beat their extensive salad bar, except the fabulous steaks. Friendly service, staff knows the menu and steak temperatures. Other greats are ribs, fish dishes, and pastas. We’re kind of coffee connoisseurs and love an after dinner cup.
