This was always our go to spot, but lately the menu has stalled. Yes, there are daily specials, but... The staff are also slow, which was not so in the past. Heard news that they redid the place decor wise. Let's hope the menu has...More

I've been a fan since it opened and now the new layout is even better. Food is always good, consistent and fresh. This is the best restaurant in the area - period. (second fave is John's cafe)

GNC has completely revamped their interior.....the new four-sided bar is astounding with dining booths and tables around it. There is a second dining room, the Radio Room, and expanded outdoor seating. Thought it couldn't get better? It did!

Always different & fresh. Love the small bar area. The vegetarian grilled reuben is yum. The good news martini is made w gin & ginger. It’s fabulous.

I know that I am consistently going to get a great meal combined with friendly service every time I dine at Good News. The presentation is always impressive and colorful. The vegetables are perfectly cooked and the portions are perfect. We love the desserts too!

Went to this restaurant about a month ago and it really wasn't very busy. We ordered something simple and had to wait about 45 minutes for our food. The food was OK at best. The server never came over to see if we needed anything....More

Sorry, I don't. She changes offerings on a regular basis.....always delicious and intriguing. But if you call, they will tell you if there will be special menus for that night. Reservations are a must.
