I was optimistic when I arrived. Parking lot looked busy but was not jammed. Went inside and found several occupied tables with guests looking like they were having a good time. Seemed promising.
A few waitresses were running about, but no one acknowledged me until I went up to the bar. My business associate and I each ordered a beer and then made our way to an outside table. 30-minutes later our beers were gone and even with two waitresses working the patio, which wasn't crowded, no one had waited on us or even spoken to us! At this point I called one over. It was clear that it was time to take some action or risk going hungry!
The waitress was very friendly and apologized, but heck we had already been here going on 45-minutes. We did order food and followed the recommendation for the braised chicken. Supposed to be a house specialty. I guess after all the wait I was expecting a bit more. It was okay. Less greasy then KFC, but less flavorful too. The salad was good but very standard. The sweet potato fries were good, but weren't good enough to make up for all the other misses.
Sorry but I just can't give a great score for this one.
