This was recommended for me to try by a friend...first, it was difficult to maneuver the traffic to enter the shopping center entrance. The staff were friendly, unfortunately that was the best. Arrived during the lunch time frame...only 1 other customer was dining...Ordered a Reuben...More

Service wasn't the smoothest or friendliest and the food wasn't quite as good as last visit. Love this place for healthy lunch and hope they step back up

The bread selection was rather boring. The sandwich selection was good -- it would have been nice to sit down with a menu to go through it all. We simply were not overly impressed.

We started going to The Carving Board Cafe almost two years ago. It is our weekly stop for an ample and tasty lunch. The service is fast, and the sandwiches, salads, and soups are very delectable! Ken offers a great selection of breads and rolls...More
