Our experience at Primrose Path for our anniversary was lovely! The food came out quickly and was delicious, as a vegetarian eating out can be tricky but the menu had great options. Our server, Bellamy, was very knowledgeable about the food and drink menus and gave great recommendations! Bellamy went above and beyond to give us great service, we will absolutely be back!

If you can’t decide on what to eat, this needs to definitely be your choice. The number of protein options is incredible and the salad bar has hot and cold options. It’s great to have choices but the flavor of everything we ate was outstanding. The grilled pineapple was my favorite. And the service was top notch.

The food was good. Had to return my entree. As soon as the waitress placed my shrimp crab dish, I smelled funky and not good. Tried to have a bite but the smell bothered me like the crab is spoiled and not fresh. The seafood fondue was great and the replacement redfish dish was delicious. They were attentive and friendly though. Before you cook something, I assume you can smell if your ingredients are fresh or not
