Food was great and service was perfect. Our waitress had a fun personality and exceeded all expectations. Pain $31 for 2 club sandwiches and fries and left a $20 tip.

Not from my memory. We sat at a booth...service was very fast and the backs on the booths are pretty high so there is some privacy.
