    We dined at Food Works for our wedding anniversary. We hadn’t been there in at least 10 years. It was so delicious! We felt it was a great value overall. We had the spinach dip appetizer, salmon and chicken fried chicken entrees, and the key lime pie dessert. Will be back soon:)

    We had the Easter Buffet. Our party of 7 was promptly seated (a little ahead of our reservation time). Our server was a delight! The table sampled pretty much everything from the buffet and agreed it was all delicious. Great job handling an Easter crowd!!

    At Sunday brunch both of us order their standard omelet without any alterations, and it took 45 minutes to get our food. Lots of people around us who were seated and ordered after us got their food before we did. That is both unacceptable and infuriating.

    Terrible service - it took an hour and 15 mins to get our food. The server was kind but it took entirely too long.
