We visit the Chatterbox for dinner every year on our vacation to OC. I've gone there for as long as I can remember, and it's always been a favorite. We went on our last trip, and were incredibly disappointed. The prices have increased, the selection isn't as varied, and service was pretty poor. I didn't receive the salad that came with my meal; I pointed this out, and they did take $1 off my meal (but $1 off a $17 meal really doesn't make much difference). I received a refill on my drink as they were clearing away my empty dinner dishes. The hostess and cashier were both very friendly. But the server seemed distracted and annoyed. My meal WAS good though - just overpriced and incomplete; portion sizes for the sides left a bit to be desired as well. I only had about 6 spoonfuls of mashed potatoes (which were obviously boxed - how disappointing). I don't know if we'll be back. It will be sad not to go back, but it seems like a waste of our time and money to have a meal there.
