They have the best Strawberry Balsamic Glazed Salmon that is grilled, and sits on top of a arugula, pecan, & strawberry salad. Served with their amazing Gold Nugget Cheese bread, yum (:

Had many lunches here and have never had a bad experience. Usually order salad or seafood and it is always fresh and tasty.
