“Healthy salad that's farm to table fresh.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Let's start with a disclaimer. We had the Donut Bar for breakfast. And after that we really needed to redeem ourselves. We stumbled upon Tender Greens and it was everything we wanted. Farm fresh greens of every imaginable combination. The dressings were light and flavorful. Delicious salads and great lemonade too.

“Healthy, fresh, delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Really great menu with fresh, healthy selections. Though everything is prepared quickly, everything tastes just made. Prices are reasonable, around $12 for an entree to start, but I didn't find the portions of protein to be huge. They also have seasonal and locally sourced sides, charcuterie and cheeses. Good lunch pick.

“Healthy and delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

BACKYARD MARINATED STEAK and SALT AND PEPPER CHICKEN with ROMAINE HEARTS are my favorites from this place. Friendly service and this place is always busy. I cannot wait to come back and try new stuff from their menu.

“good food, not too expensive, healthy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

This was the first time we went to this restaurant. It is sort of like a cafeteria, but you order in front, and then see the food being put together in the line. You pay the the end of the line. Looking at the food is mostly to see how they do it, not really a pick and choose kind of thing. The greens are fresh and the meat is generally good. They even have wine and beer. The desserts are very nice. service was also good. mostly lo-cal, lo fat, if you choose wisely. If you do not care about that, the food is pretty healthy all around.

“Expensive salads, fast-food setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

I ordered the Mediterranean Spinach salad to go. All the salads are $11.50. I was disappointed to find my $11.50 salad consisted of two cups of spinach (and NOT organic, mind you), maybe half of a tomato cut up into three pieces, an ounce of goat cheese, about eight of the smallest kalamata olives I have ever seen, and dressing. And one, small piece of bread. That's it. For $11.50.
