With just a little effort Breauds could be a great restaurant. The servers try hard but could benefit from training. The food isn't bad but $53 for a filet with lump crab (it was listed at "market price" and, yes, we should have inquired as to the price before ordering) is way out of alignment with the market or the verall quality of food and service. I want this restaurant to be all that it could and should be but its not there yet. Therefore, I can't recommend it, not if you're expecting a first rate fine dining experience.

I enjoyed a great meal tonight. I had the Rainbow Trout as my entree. But what really put the place over the top for me was the salad and dessert bars. (The salad bar comes with the meal.) The salads were very fresh and the choices were many. The same holds true for the dessert bar. But what really topped it off was the service. I was waited on hand and foot, as if I were the only patron in the place! I tip my hat to Rich for his outstanding job.

The store puts a strong emphasis on providing quality customer service. For example, never has there been a time when I've asked any one of the employees for help finding a product that they did not personally take to its location. Often - and I experienced the at another supermarket in town - the employee will point in the direction of the product or provide the location (aisle 12 on the right). Not Super 1. They take you to it!

I'm a fan of Don's Seafood Hut. The food is very good and you can always count on its quality and consistency. Plus, I love their Old Fashioned! It's a regular hangout for my wife and I.

I love their donuts. One is like eating a meal. A not very healthy meal, but a meal nonetheless. Plus, the staff operates like a machine. Otherwise, they would never be able to handle the lines of people that often extend out the door.

BurgerSmith passes itself off as a gournet burger restaurant. However, it's lacking in several areas. If you're looking for a great burger, go to Ground Pati.

What makes Americas Coffee House a favorite spot for me is the owner, Floyd. He provides friendly, personalized service. He knows my preferences and the drinks I like. You don't get that with chain places. Plus, he's friendly and courteous to boot.
