Everything was fine for our Saturday lunch. Had chicken and waffles, which server said was one of the most popular items in the menu. Was ok. Sat down and had 3 different servers before we even ordered food. Cute spot, just seemed disorganized.

Agree. CK has the space. Flame Steakhouse downtown, also would be a good bet. For more casual (but great food!), I'd try Black Sheep Burger
