New Talons menu exceeds expectations

Erinn Williams

New food, shorter hours, and great service are all apart of the revamped experience that students can receive at Talons Grille this semester.

Talons Grille changed their hours of operation to 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Monday through Friday and also have a new menu which included desserts.

The new Talons features a family-style dining experience where one entree is served each day to all customers with a tossed house salad, bread service, and dessert for $8.50.

The new menu isn’t set in stone. Not only will it change seasonally but also daily and student suggestions will be taken into account.

At arrival, plates and cutlery were placed at each table and a basket of bread and family-sized bowl of salad were brought out for us to share.

A sweet butter spread was served with two different types of warm rolls that continued as lunch progressed.

The tossed house salad featured crisp and fresh mixed greens, tomatoes, and carrots with your choice of salad dressing.

Thursday’s lone entree was a large helping of chicken Alfredo with broccoli.

The pasta was appetizing. The chicken was tender and well seasoned and the Alfredo sauce was savory. It was all topped with a sprinkling of shredded cheese that created a satisfying dish.

Their classic apple pie was warm and sweet with a strong cinnamon taste; it left me wanting another slice or two and was the perfect way to wrap up a meal.

Talons has also really picked up their service. The staff was very attentive. Food and drinks were brought out in a timely manner and everyone was courteous.

Though the old menu may be missed, there is no denying that the new Talons Grille experience will have you coming back time and time again.
