3.5 stars, 11 reviews
One customer says: "For me this is the remedy for all the big, boxy malls and, to a degree, box stores that are seemingly everywhere. The remedy comes in the form of an open, airy feel along with the mixture of both local stores and chain restaurants and stores. When I go here, I am always finding something I haven't found before, either in a store or just by walking around."
3.5 stars, 81 reviews
One customer says: "Overall, the food scene is quite diverse. From The Melting Pot and Texas de Brazil to your everyday Starbucks and even a place that sells edible cookie dough, I was stunned to see all the choices available."
3.5 stars, 38 reviews
One customer says: "What a great turnaround story! It went from being a second class mall to the one we go to! The movie theater is better, there's Tesla chargers, LL Bean, and Whole Foods. The Macy's also seems nicer here."
