When in doubt, and maybe for only you and a friend/wife/s.o./etc., and the wait is 45-50 minutes...head to the open seating in the bar! <p>

Wife waits at one end, I at the other, and when folks are beginning to pay their check, we'll politely ask if we can have their table when they leave. 100% of the time, folks at the bar already chose to eat there due to the long wait, and are happy to give it up.<p>

We don't even "sign-in" any more. Just off to the bar. We don't even drink.

i recently ate here with a girlfriend. We ordered Monte Christo sandwiches which are ham and cheese dipped in batter and deep fried, served with jam on the side. The sandwiches were mildly warm on the outside and the ham and cheese on the inside were cold.

The drink menu was greasy and stained, the floor was dirty, and I have to say I was shocked at how many people were waiting in line to eat at this place.

When we first arrived the hostess asked us how many, we had 11, they ask if we would split up(with attitude) we said no, that is why we were together because of family out of town did not wanna split! The hostess continued with attitude saying it would be about an hour, we said that was fine, then the manager came up and said No it should only be about 30-40 we said we would wait, we wanted to be together! Half way through she looked down at us sitting patiently, "are you sure you don't want to split up?" No really we are fine. Finally the Manager came back to tell us it was just a few more minutes.....we again said great but we are fine! All the while the hostess kept looking at us like we are crazy. Anyway when we got settled in about an hour+ the food was delish and our server was very attentive and helpful!

Usually end up waiting a long time to get a seat, and the food is only okay. Decent value for your dollar, and it's conveniently located right next to the movie theater.

We recently visited this location on a Friday night with family and friends - a group of 11. We were informed that it would be about a 20-30 minute wait when we arrived. We visited together and watched as three young girls stood at the host desk and talked, joked, basically killing time. At the 20-30 minute mark we asked one of the girls about the wait, which was met with a rude, disinterested reply - as if she could not be bothered. Finally one of the managers arrived, over-worked and apparently tired, and stated they were almost ready. About 15 minutes later we were seated. Once we finally were served the food was good, though not worth the wait (and floor show). Servers were nice as well. No wonder the manager was so exhausted - maybe motivate the staff better? Just a thought.
