What was once a great restaurant has really gone downhill. Took my family there today for lunch. Despite making reservations for 6, two days in advance, no table was prepared and we were ushered into a very crowded section. Kalmar is a good sized restaurant but it appeared there were only two waitresses on duty. People who came in after... More

My husband and I went there for Easter lunch, of course had the turkey! it was delicious, not your usual so called pressed or processed turkey, but the real thing! would go back for sure! It also came with soup and dessert. Home made soup was also very good, all under 20 dollars!

We went to this place on high recommendations from friends. The food was so-so and the service ok when the waitresses weren't talking amongst themselves. Nope didn't like it and won't go back

OK this place looks like it hasn't changed in decades. But who cares? It's clean, open and they have really good dinner specials. I love the fact that you aren't fighting with the menu to try and find something reasonably priced that sounds good. The food is consistently good, family friendly fare. It's well priced, the portions are good and... More

Pleasant atmosphere and good prices for a family of four (about $60.00). It's a bit out of the way for us, otherwise we'd be there much more often.

From the moment we entered this restaurant you could tell it was going to be a good experience. We were greeted by Selina and from that moment on it stayed 10 out of 10.Nice fresh de-café coffee, the salad bar good and fresh and the Chicken Curry Indian style was awesome you could tell this had not been made days...

I would rate this a zero if it was possible. I do not want anyone to experience what we did.Went in for lunch and were eventually seated. Food was fair, Service was slow. They seem to cater to their regular clients. Mentioned to manager/owner and was told not to come back. Terrible PR.
