Wild Berries Restaurant

I finally made a trip to Wild Berries for the first time.  It's been open for awhile and is right next to my office, but I had never gotten over there before.  The biggest highlight for me is that even though my brother and I met there for a late lunch, breakfast was still on!  I could eat breakfast any meal of the day.  On to the rankings...

Our overall rating was 3.94 Stars (out of 5 stars).

Here's how that breaks down:

Family Friendly: 5 Stars  I didn't bring my kids to this visit but I saw a handful of kids throughout the restauarnt.

Menu: 3.5 Stars  It almost has too many options.  I realize it's good to have a lot of choices, but it is one of those menus that overwhelms you when you get it.  The kids menu has some notable failures: hot dogs and dino-nuggets anyone?

Taste of the Food: 4.5 Stars  I just ordered biscuits and gravy, but they were very good.

Appearance of the Food: 4 Stars  I can't say much about my biscuits and gravy, but the skillet breakfast my brother got looked outstanding. 

Restrooms: 4 Stars

Atmosphere: 3.5 Stars  It's funny that this should be a knock against the place, but it just seemed empty.  I think there were plenty of people there, but the buildings is huge, so it felt like we were dining alone.  Not bad if that's what you're going for but it's also nice to feel that others are into the restaurant too.

Service: 4 Stars

Ethical/Sustainable: 3 Stars  Everything seemed made from scratch, but there was also nothing about their purchasing practices.

Pricing: Prices were reasonable. My half order of biscuits and gravy were about $4 and my brothers' HUGE skillet was about $10.
