Our kids suggested we try this restaurant, due to a diabetic being in our group. Glad we gave it a try, as this place had the largest, most diverse salad bar we had ever eaten from. Many uncommon options, such a fresh beet shreds, on bar. There were at least 6 different kinds of soup, including zuchinni cashew, clam chowder, lobster bisque, & chicken noodle. Spinach tomato pasta, macaroni & cheese, pizza, fresh bread selection, and fresh muffins were also available (and delicious!). Several dessert options, including ice cream. Staff friendly. Restaurant clean & seating comfortable. Senior special available after 2 pm certain days of the week if on a budget, and our children also had internet coupons. Our party consisted of an 8 year old, two thirty somethings, and two older adults. All of use were very satisfied with what was offered. Would eat here again for either lunch or dinner.

We have visited several Sweet Tomato locations in Florida and so far this was the best. It was the cleanest, most efficiently run and the best selections for our taste. Salads like Caesar Asiago, Stawberry Fields and WonTon Happiness. There was Jane's Broccoli Madness and Dill & Dijon - eight different kinds of soup, a Greek Canatappi and Quatro Formaggio pizza . We were big fans of the gluten free coconut muffins.
The downside...we ate too much.

It would be hard to find a better place for a salad feast. The muffins are fresh baked and tasty as well. The soups are hit and miss, and everything else is just OK but nothing special.

We were very impressed with this restaurant. It has the largest selection on a salad bar that we have experienced. Their soup is wonderful and the lemon and double chocolate muffins are out of this world. Oh, and don't forget the soft serve ice cream.

We decided to forego lunch for dinner. We had a coupon so it made the value for return even better. When you enter you go directly to the salad bar which has almost everything you could possibly want on it. It even has some specialty salads like "Chinese salad which I enjoyed that evening. They also had varied slaws. Do not know if these selections are the same each night but there was enough for us. We then paid? And went to sit down. We then went to the Soup bar where there were at least 4 piping hot soups. The Clam chowder was good but could of used a few more clams. The Chili was good but you may want to spice it up a little. The Corn chowder was very good. They also had fixings for the soup. They had baked white and sweet potatoes good. They had baked macaroni, very bland. They had good breads etc. The desert bar was your orange slices and grapes. Along with a Pina Colada terrible pudding. They had Tapioca pudding that was very good for canned as well as canned chocolate pudding and I think jello? They did have soft serve ice cream with several toppings. Overall not bad for money. I would return
