The restaurant has been newly refurbished & that's where the problem lies. The counter to pick up your food is too close to the beverage dispensing area which also includes the cups, straws, butter, margarine, etc. Too many people are constantly trying to access this area - making it hard for those who have just picked up their trays of food to pass through. On our last visit 3 children were playing in the area while mom was getting beverages. Patrons had to repeatedly ask the kids to move so they could take their trays to their tables. The food is still wonderful & worth the visit. The new décor is upbeat & pleasing, making for more comfortable for seating.
