they gave us a seat in quieter section of the restaurant so we could talk. They let us order from lunch menu at dinner time. The club sandwich was tasty and strawberry lemonade also OK. The server ASKED if fries were OK--should have chosen a healthier/tastier alternative.

There is no GM in sight and the wait staff is incredibly slow and never around when needed. They even seemed somewhat argumentative when making 2 mistakes with our order. Food remains decent, for a franchise.
