This was my first time at Club Car for a business lunch, and I was impressed. Service was prompt and friendly. I had the Sante Fe Chicken Salad, and it was perfect for a light lunch. Atmoshpere and setting is very pleaseing. Will certainly return.

Not sure how to classify. The place is nice inside- fine for business or a date or friends in blue jeans. Service was fine. Prices were to be expected. Food was fine. There are just so many restaurants of this style. Excellent gluten free menu.

We stopped here because they have an extensive gluten free menu. There is a big selection. The hamburger was ok. Wife had barbecue sandwich. Nice environment. Attentive server.
