Fresh Kitchen

  • 5

I have been going to this place for years now and I really like them. Yesterday, we had their Thanksgiving meal (24.99/pp) - everything was great - from the butternut squash soup to the pumpkin pie. We have their Friday night dinners regularly and, minus the occasional misfire, they are a delight. I love their concept and I hope they stick around.

    1. I do like the quality of poultry that Fresh Kitchen gets for these dinners, but thats about where it stops. Its been about 8 months since i had something other than a salad from there that i wasnt disappointed in. Under roasted beets... Over salty side salads from the deli counter... over cooked(and over priced) salmon steaks. I like going in for inspiration for dinner, hitting up Boyds fish market, or safeway and making it at home. Maybe they arent the type of store marketed to me, but i think pawning this stuff off as convenience food is sort of a joke.

      1. Last time i was in there I found mold on a sandwich. I'm back in town after a few months overseas so perhaps they have improved things?

          Yikes. We usually only get the Friday Dinners and have never had a problem, aside from maybe just not liking something (sometimes, they have weird salads). Hmm. Hopefully we will keep having good experiences.

            I had a similar experience, Love to dine out..we bought a ranch dip that was rancid. I had been going there semi-regularly, but that turned me right off. Maybe their seasonal menus are the way to go- I imagine the Friday dinners would be prepared to order? I might try those, not liking a salad is just a matter of taste-but spoiled food is certainly not! I'm staying away from pre-packaged food there for sure.
