Lots of soup and salad. Entrees are a bit small, especially the higher-priced ones. Atmosphere is family-friendly. Waitresses are very experienced and nice. Great place to take a friend for a different type of experience.

Wool Growers starts dinner seating at 6:00. They may take your reservation, but you won't be able to be seated until then. The last time we were there it was a Wednesday night and it was packed.
