GSC RESTAURANT - March 30, 2006

I can usually count on my family to go along with some of my “adventures.”

Granddaughter Sally, her mother Lynn and I attended the grand opening of Mollohan Restaurant at Glenville State College Student Center last Thursday. The center has been updated and is an attractive building, tucked on the hill beside the President’s home. The restaurant is on the second floor, with access by elevator or a stairway. It was a great experience to see it through the eyes of three generations.

Everything was thrilling for Sally from the first step out of the car. New curbs on sidewalks were made for little children to walk on, in her mind. Even the stairway to the second floor had decorative openings that are seen best from a child’s level. Every step brought a new view through the “peep hole.” Her lunch began with a bowl of frozen custard, topped with cookie crumbs, followed by an apple and nibbling from our salads.

Lynn and I were impressed by the modern design. The room was bright and sunny, with nice carpet, tables and chairs. The price was very reasonable. A flat fee was charged for the meal, with second helpings available. Several students were still eating at 1:30, the closing time. Local business people were leaving as we arrived. Each table had a display card showing food selections and benefits of good choices. The buffet-style service gave each guest an opportunity to see it all and make selections. The staff was very attentive, courteous and patient. We took our time making our selections and eating our meal.

The serving area was spotless. There were several stations, including dessert bar, salad bar, deli bar, hot food bar and featured meal. Lynn and I split a tuna dill wrap and barbecue wrap. Sandwiches were available on a variety of breads or wrapped in a tortilla. Both sandwiches were filled with fresh green vegetables of our choice. We also had a salad that was bright with dark greens, carrots, radishes, tomatoes, green peppers, assorted dressings and toppings. There was a large variety of interesting desserts, including fresh fruits, baked items, and the frozen custard. We had a brownie and oatmeal cookie.

There is a brunch each Sunday with a varied menu. A special Easter brunch requires reservations.

We left the center with a good feeling that Glenville State College is not just “Glenville” or “Gilmer County.” It is an area college and belongs to Calhoun County too.
