Overcrowded

They've sacrificed space just to cram in as many people as possible. The food is nice when they're not out of what you want.

My family and I went to CAs for a fathers day meal. What stuck out for me (the father) was the extremely friendly and helpful staff. The meal was really enjoyable with all family members really enjoying the food that they selected from the menu. To the staff thank you for making the experience of a family meal so enjoyable.
