It's really too bad, they use to have a great lunch but new managers or owners have changes the lunch hour. You can onl!y eat in the bistro which is loud and overcrowded. Have had numerous business lunches in the past....no more. Need to re-open the dining room or use that for lunch instead of the bistro. Lunch managers are rude to customers especially loyal customers. Good Buy Factoroy!

I've never liked soup. Somebody talked me into trying the cream of chicken/wild rice soup at the Sunshine Factory and it is amazing - huge chunks of white chicken in thick creamy sauce - mmmmm. It's hearty! We used to go there for happy hour when I worked nearby and they've added an outdoor patio since. Good atmosphere and good food!

Quote ""We were sitting in the sports bar area and kept hearing loud yelling from the kitchen. Most unpleasent atmostphere. The turnaround for the food was slow and the waitress informed us that one of the 4 entrees was done but she was still waiting on the others - it took another 15 minutes. Everything was warm when it arrived - I guess one of us had microwaved food!""
I used to work at the sunshine factory and I have no doubt that this reviewer is accurate. If some entree comes up and the others aren't done yet, then it will sit under the heat lamp for upwards of 15 minutes until the other entrees are complete. If you ask to get your meal warmed up because it was served too cold they will microwave it rather than cook it thoroughly.

After reading a couple other reviews we were concerned about the service but decided to try it anyway based on the food recommendations. We were pleasantly surprised with attentive service from staff, and the food was a good as we had hoped for. Wait staff was polite, quick, and responsive, including when sending a steak back for a bit more atttention. Wild rice soup was creamy and thick. Walleye with cracker crumb crust, shrimp, sirloin steaks were all well-prepared, lightly seasoned. Broccoli was served as a large, bright green bouquet with a side of creamy chicken sauce. Another school district staffer leaving the place said the salmon special was excellent.

I love SF's Chicken Wild Rice Soup but the only way to do food from here is to call ahead and pick it up. The food is over-priced which would be worth it if the staff had any interest in serving customers. The service is terrible. There have been several times we have had to walk out due to no service. It's a shame since it could be such a great bar but unfortunately they just don't care to wait on anyone. Very disappointing.
