When we arrived there were 3 tables full on the patio (out of 5) and 2-3 tables inside. One table received the wrong order and it took several minutes to get a servers attention to notify them. We sat at a table for 10 minutes with no one coming to give us menus until I went inside and talked to someone rolling silverware. Then the servers loudly pronounced that the orders were mixed up because the customers had switched tables. There was a sign posted - please do not move tables. I thought that referred to relocating the tables, not to people changing tables. Sign needs to be reworded. But there were only 3 couples in the patio at the time, should that really have confused everyone?
When we tried to pay, someone took our card and we waited. After several minutes I decided to walk to the car. I walked three blocks to the car, brought the car around and the check still had not been returned. It was not until my husband went inside that they were able to find the bill and our credit card. The food was good, but I cannot imagine what the service would be like on a busy day!
They have signs posted - voted best in the area! But I have no idea who voted, I am sure it was not anyone who was there that lunch time.
