Good Food, friendly service - but they need to work on the environment and process

Our party of 7 made reservations and were quickly seated for dinner.

The servers and what appeared to be a manager were all friendly and helpful.

The food was tasty - I will not be daydreaming about it - but I enjoyed my meal. I had the 1/2 rack of slow cooked ribs with a baked potato and mixed vegetables ($19.99). My daughter had the baked chicken with penne alfredo and mixed vegetables ($8.99). My son had a burger with fries (can't remember exact price). My husband had a penne dish and I can't recall what the others had.

The food was good and, again, the service was good. I appreciated the server listening to my order and omitting the lettuce, onions and pickle from his burger and serving the mayo and ketchup on the side so he could dress it the way he wants (he has a sensory disorder and this peculiar ordering is really important). I also thought that she interacted well with both the older adults and the children.

I had some issues with the process. After we ordered - the waitress returned after at least 15 minutes and advised my husband that they were out of his original pasta choice. I have always had a problem with this. The serving staff need to be advised of shortages BEFORE serving the guests. This can be accomplished by communication between the kitchen and front staff (faciliated by the manager).

Also, the sun was moving west and shining through a window. It was quite a glare. The manager was quick to try to correct it (putting blockers in the window to prevent the sunlight from coming in and shining into our faces). I appreciated his effort. However, it would be nice to have blinds or drapes that can be drawn to prevent it from happening. The manager admitted that the blinds weren't working. Maybe it is time to get them replaced...

In general - I enjoyed our meals. It was good for families with a nice kids menu. There was something for everyone and the price point was reasonable.
