My family has always liked California Dreaming in the past. At this location, we had bad service, our order came out wrong and the ranch dressing tasted soured. Not a good experience.

We went in early to avoid a wait. The service was fast and friendly. The food was very very good. A family of five, and we all loved our food. Family friendly!

My husband an I both ordered the California Dreaming salad. It was amazing and the glazed rolls were as good as remembered. We went at lunch and it wasn't too crowded. Enjoyed the meal a lot.

Hi Mike, Yes, we do offer a $13.95 early evening menu daily (excluding holidays) from 4-6pm. It's a 'you need to know about it' kind of menu, so ask for it the next time you join us! Looking forward to serving you soon.
