This restaurant was fantastic. The salad bar was expansive. So much to choose from. I had filet mignon and sweet potatoes which were delicious. We had a seat by the window. You have to call an hour before they open to get a reservation.

My sister and brother-in-law are both vegetarian and they enjoyed the salad bar and baked potato. By the way this is not my restaurant so I do not know if it is affiliated with the one in Boone. Hope this helps.
