    Our parties food came out at same time which is always perfect. Personable waitress. Soups were perfectly hot. Reasonable pricing. *only disappointment was the (inside restaurant) bench seat in front area that accommodates the two front table… Bench is not comfortable, needs more padding. You can feel every movement of other patrons on the bench from table beside. The party next to ours also complained about this. We have never encountered this issue on the benches inside. Perhaps the front tables are used more often ?
