Baumgarts offers a western menu for lunch and then changes to a Pan Asian menu for dinner. We haven't experienced lunch there but based upon our dinner we have no reason to do so. We started with cold sesame noodles. I have had this dish in many restaurants but this was the first time that the noodles were fat which... More

A solid family restaurant with something for everybody. Food is Pan-Asian and American. Great home made ice-cream.

I love it here, my family has been coming here for years. They have the best sesame noodles I've ever had, which is saying something! Their sesame chicken is absolutely perfectly crunchy. The hot and sour soup is only served on weekends, but definitely try it if you have the chance. Also, the ice cream is amazing, and you can't... More

I should have listened to the reviews before going here for my daughter's 10th birthday. They greated regulars warmly so I know it wasn't a language barrier. The woman who seated us was abupt and just plain nasty. I've never felt so uncomfortable. Our waiter was equally bad. The menu is huge and he rolled his eyes at us when... More

My husband and I went there one night about an hour before they were closing for dinner. While we were dining, my sister called and said she was in the area and we asked her to join us. It was now about a half hour prior to closing and we asked our waiter if it was OK if another guest... More

Our elementary aged child was literally carded to eat off the kids menu. We immediately picked up and left. Prices were very high, glad we left. I don't pay for rude.

There's a great variety of food at this place and it is all delicious. I would recommend the general tsos chicken or the lettuce wraps. Friendly staff and easily located
