Sweet Tomatoes is a good place to go for lunch when you are in mood for a buffet that includes salads, soups, breads and a few pasta dishes. The restaurant is clean and it is a good value. It kind of reminded me of a vegetarian version of Ponderosa’s buffet. The food is decent for the price.

We arrived for a meal later in the evening around 730ish. The salad bar was in perfect order and very clean. The girls behind the salad were pleasant, and happy to give Wonton dressing for my self-made salad. The server kept our table fairly clean of plates, The baked potatoes were piping hot, and the soups were good and pretty... More

Great place for salad and soup and pasta and dessert. Went there one a whim and it was good. You serve yourself and someone picks up your empty plates and cups. Will definitely go back.

Healthy choice of salads, and unbelievable choice of items to put in your salad. Good selection of soups, pasta, etc. Love their breakfast items on Sunday mornings .

Extremely disappointed in Sweet Tomatoes. The salads are all wilted and the rest of the buffet is nothing but carbs. If you want a lunch or dinner of pasta, pizza and bread, this is your place!

I'm not a fan of buffet style restaurants, and Sweet Tomatoes reinforced this view. The meal includes the salad bar, bakery area, hot pasta, and dessert stations, yet the food is simply not good quality. The wait to get through all the different lines before we could just sit and eat is not convenient. And how to proceed when you... More

Start with the salad bar. Lettuce of several kinds, spinach all kinds of veggies to enhance your salad and customize it to your liking. Select a beverage, then visit the potato bar, try a soup or chili, grab a roll or cornbread and get ready to have a Great meal. Return for more, grab a slice of pizza, some pasta... More
