    Had lunch there today at a lovely outdoor table. Sandwich was very disappointing. It was billed as a portabella panini and instead of a large grilled portabella mushroom, it has sliced up RAW crimini (tiny) mushrooms. Who wants a raw mushroom sandwich?

    I agree with th posts indicating poor service. Seems slow and non attentive. We went in here with our 9 year old son and got attitude from the staff like kids were not allowed.

  • 3 Bryan // Jun 22, 2010 at 3:45 pm

    I have been there 4 times, and every single time we have had attentive service, great suggestions and excellent food. The last time I had the biscuits and gravy and they were the best that I have ever had…including multiple tastings in Georgia, North Carolina, etc. This is a great place to kick back for a while and have a quality meal.

  • 4 Melody // Aug 10, 2010 at 2:25 am

    of course kids are allowed, although if you allow your child to run around the restaurant and scream at will it's likely you would receive the attitude that you should work on your parenting.

    Trendy emos? Are you in middle school, or do you just have an exceptionally poor grasp of colloquial terms?

    I'm guessing you're a disgruntled employee and nothing more, considering your assertion that they “run their staff rough” and “are bad to work for”. They provide health and dental insurance to all their employees. Real “bad to work for”.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • 45 oto link // Nov 3, 2014 at 3:03 pm

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
