My daughter and I ate there last Saturday, after making a pilgrimage to the AG store next door. The food was exactly as I've always heard - very good and plentiful. Unfortunately, we had nearly finished our meal when we witnessed their approach to cleanliness. A few moments after the couple next to us got up to leave, a server came over to clear off what was left on the table. He grabbed the dirty silverware and napkins and stuffed them into one pocket of his apron, grabbed a dirty cloth out of another pocket to brush the food debris onto the floor, and slapped down some fresh silverware directly onto the table out of what I hope was a third pocket.
There was no attempt at all to sanitize the table. They weren't using tablecloths so if somebody sneezed on that table, or dropped a piece of chewed food on it, that "fresh" silverware was sitting directly in saliva, or, well, you get the picture.
I wouldn't eat there again on a bet.
