Haven't been to a Souplantation in years but decided to stop in since we were in the area. Like the variety. Do they ever change any of the items? Everything was exactly the same as it was years ago. I know there is only so much you could do with salad but maybe change some of the 'sides'? Tried the... More

We enjoyed this place. The only complaint was there was no chicken or seafood or protein for salads.

I really love this place especially their salad bar and soup. My favorite salad dressing at this place is the sesame dressing and at the soup section my favorite is the clam chowder. I can never get enough of this place. I highly recommend this place to anyone!

On a recent Sunday morning, after church services, my wife and I chose the Souplantation for a quick lunch. Plenty of greens piled high, corn bread sticks, clam chowder, with veggies followed up by the world smallest ice cream cones (yes, plural!). We've done lunch here many times and the food is always fresh!

A nice healthy treat. A nice clean cafeteria restaurant. In addition to the plethora of salads and greens available, there are also warm soups and a nice selection of fresh baked items. I would recommend trying the Chili with cheese and onions. You can eat a nice meal out without wearing out your "fitbit" or maxing out on "MyFitness Pal".

Abundant salads--prepare your own or select from the wide variety of chef's creations. Many soups from which to choose. Pasta, pizza, baked potatoes, sweet potatoes, fruit juices and fresh fruit, light desserts, fresh breads, including excellent gluten-free muffins. (All food items are labeled as gluten-free and/or vegetarian.) Excellent traffic flow in this well-designed buffet of healthful eating. Cheerful, welcoming staff.... More

What a surprise Monday - Thursday ask for senior discount between 2:00-5:00 pm. Dinner is $7.49 including a drink. Everything is fresh and good tasting! Wonderful and the soups hit the spot with this colder weather!!!

The selection and quality of the food was great, as was the service. What made it even better was the Senior discount from 2-5 pm ($7.49 including a drink)!

Basic salad bar buffet for salad gluttons, blasé greens with additional cost for supposedly gourmet add-ons. Edible with zero inspiration. All you can eat a great value for unfussy rabbit-like humans.

Bland bland bland. Everything taste like it is missing something. Salad is salad ... So I guess most people go for the $8.99 rabbit food (lunch). Soup bland, but you have a choice between several bland soups. Pizza, if you dare to put that label on it, has very very little cheese. Desserts, give me a break. Soft serve stuff,... More
