We went with a group of 8 people and as would be expected during the dinner hour, it took about 45 min. to get a table. When we were finally seated, it took about 10 min for our drink orders to be taken, and then after taking the dinner order, it was about 20 min or more to get our salads. In the meantime a table of 6 came to sit down next to ours-- and this was about 30 min after we were seated. They had their beverages AND salads within 5 min of being seated and orders taken.
When our food finally arrived, my fish was somewhat cold, so it had obviously been sitting for quite a bit before being brought to the table. The shrimp scampi and fried shrimp were pretty good, and the cheddar biscuits were very good.
The server was pleasant and that's the only thing that really saved her gratuities. The service does need to be better.
