We booked the reservation at Checkers because of its close proximity to the Ahmanson Theatre and complimentary shuttle to and from the theatre. It is very convenient to valet park in the hotel and not deal with parking at the theatre. However, after dinner we were informed by the waiter he could not reach the shuttle service and could only offer to call us a cab (at our expense), which meant we would also have to call a cab to get back to the hotel afterward! Now pressed for time, we had to quickly leave and try to get parking at the theatre. We were extremely disappointed in the way this was handled, especially since the waiter told us there was trouble in the past with this shuttle service.
Otherwise the food was very good and service was friendly, but the way they handled the debacle with the shuttle service was less than acceptable.
