I like the steak, mashed potatoes, and either the asparagus or the spinach with berries salad. Yum, yum, yum! And they offer a small discount to employees of the nearby community college. NOTE: Open only for lunch and closed on Saturday and Sunday!

Brown bag is a little pricey for my budget but so yummy! Great food to get for groups; office catering; events.

We got the grilled chicken and mashed potatoes with skins for our meal. I put the chicken on the spinach salad which, when combined with their homemade dressing, was a party in my mouth!

The service and quality of food is great. They cater our company Christmas every year and our Administrative Luncheon as well. The food is always delicious, especially the grilled chicken, steak, and spinach salad with the raspberries, mandarin oranges, and salad dressing.
