We stopped by because it was close to my hotel for an overnite outing....I had checked out the website on my phone and signed up for emails and texts. By the time we arrived I had a 20% code and the latest menu! My party of three all you can eat was $30! Amazing soups, incredible salad! Flat breads, muffins,... More

I have been to several Soup Plantations, and this one was very nice. Quite spacious in its layout, there is ample sitting for a large number of customers without making the place feel packed. I went with my two daughters and forgot how expensive the dinner option is. Even with one of the meals free for my birthday, the bill... More

Is the good place to go if you're looking to get a big salad they have a lot of other stuff too but I typically focus just on the salad and the chicken soup but beware this is not a diet place.

We came here with the whole family, kids and all, and every one loved it. There are so many fresh options for everyone, even those that are not so keen on salads. The lettuce wraps, vegetarian, were delicious. I love that they list the ingredients for all soups and always have vegetarian options. The seating can be tight at peak... More

Our family of 6 visited here and got there 30 minutes before closing one night but the staff welcomed us and were super friendly the whole time. They keep things fully stocked on one side for at least 30 minutes past closing time for those already in the restaurant! Great, fresh produce---we were in Heaven having such fresh items, many...

I am going to tell you like it is... I really like Souplantation... a lot. No, it isn't going to change your world... no, it isn't going to be a place that you turn to a co-worker and say "Oh, my God, Becky... there was this place we went to for lunch the other day... you HAVE GOT TO GO!!"......

Pretty confused upon arriving. You basically enter and pick up a tray. You serve yourself some salad. At the end of that , you are greeted by a cashier who will ask you how many in your party , etc. You will then proceed to get your other food which included baked potato bar, flavored focaccia bread, desserts and fruit....
