I've always had a special place in my heart for Sizzler and their Malibu chicken since it was a frequent visit when I was a kid until all the Sizzlers in Illinois closed down. So whenever I'm out of town and come across one, I feel compelled to eat there. Unfortunately this location has changed my mind about that approach.
For $30 (2 people) I expected better food. The salad bar offerings were dried out, the mashed potatoes with my meal tasted like instant potatos, and my husband's baked potato tasted odd. The only part of the meal that was even remotely satisfying was my Malibu chicken but I can easily make that at home with a Tyson chicken patty, some ham, and some Swiss cheese. Plus my dipping sauce would taste better.
As for the staff, the guy at the register got visibly annoyed with me when I kindly asked him to repeat my side options (he rattled them off so quickly I couldn't keep up) so he sucks. Our waitress was great, however.
Overall, I think I'm done with Sizzler. It makes me feel dirty eating there so I'm breaking up with it. It's not me, Sizzler, it's you... mostly definitely you.
What an awesome little find! This conservatory is extremely small but packs a lot of pretty flowers in the space, and best of all, it's free! A definite visit on a nice day.
Was impressed that they weren't stingy with the scoop size during their $1 scoop fest this past week. The girl who served us could have been a bit friendlier, but in all it was worth the trip when a regular scoop is normally $2.69!
This Walmart looks much better since they remodeled it and added the full grocery area. Their food prices are very reasonable and they have a great selection. I use it to supplement my regular shopping at Target.
Loving this place even more lately. Signed up for their Savers membership and all clothing is 25% off on Mondays. I've already snagged a few tank tops for the summer for $2-$3 each. It's a great way to fulfill the need to shop while adhering to a budget. I also enjoy just walking around and seeing what they have since it's always different.
My only wish is that they organized the shirts by color like Goodwill does. Sometimes I'm looking for something in a specific color but have to weed through the entire rack.This place is like a larger better organized Goodwill store. It's all the same stuff - donated items… En savoir plus
This is a very nice park that I discovered last Fall. There's a lot here besides a pond and walking path - there is also a playground (complete with a zipline), tennis courts, basketball courts, plenty of picnic benches, and an aquatic facility. There's a good-sized hill that's perfect for sledding in the Winter as well.
This park is a great place to spot aquatic/bird wildlife such a ducks, geese (beware the aggressive ones protecting their babies), egrets, etc. (I spotted a bluebird here in April).
I'm sure this is a nice place if you're looking to purchase a pool, hot tub, pool table, patio furniture or pool supplies, but it's a bit misleading that they claim to carry holiday decor when there's just one aisle of shared St. Patrick's Day and Easter decorations. A light up shamrock for your window is $10. I'll pass.
I really did not enjoy this experience because:
1) The tickets were $15 per person.
2) The train cars do not have heat in them and it was cold and rainy outside (the only reason we did this to begin with).
3) The train goes 2 MPH one direction, then stops, then the engine goes past us, hooks up to the other side of the train and we go back the way we came (and then a little further up to a "train yard").
4) There's not much that is scenic considering this is called the scenic railroad unless you are dying to see Ellsworth's high school and the blueberry factory. Yes, we went past a swamp area where there was an eagle's nest but I didn't see any wildlife at all.
Obviously they cannot control whether there's wildlife around but I think they are rather misleading calling this ride scenic. Call it what it is - a chance to ride in a historic restored train. At least let people know what you're really about because I'm not into trains and was hoping for a nice ride. Shame on me for not doing more research I guess but they didn't have a Yelp entry (they do now thanks to yours truly).
I will say, the all-volunteer staff was great, but again, at least know what you're getting into if you fork over your cash. You are not going to see much but the train itself.
Tip: There's a restroom in Cadillac sports which is where you buy the tickets for this train (and then you go out the door on the left to board the train in back).

This happened in August 2011, but I forgot to write an update at the time...
I came here to buy tickets for a Lotto Pool at work. The guy at the cashier got mad at us claiming he lost $10 because he ran off tickets for the wrong lotto date. We had written down and shown him the game, date and how much we wanted. Plus what we asked for didn't even come to $10 so why would he yell at US when HE'S the one who made the mistake?
I've gone out of my way to buy lotto tickets elsewhere after that bullshit. How dare they treat a customer that way when they are the one who made the mistake. I won't give this place my business again. I don't care how convenient the location is.
It smelled funny in here but they got the order correct so that's good. I like the new Doritos Locos tacos although I don't plan on eating here too often because it's by no means authentic Mexican food. I'm sure that comes as no surprise to anyone.
