3 of us went in for lunch today (3/19/2018). We arrived at noon on the dot but plenty of seating was available and we got a table quickly. Our waiter came and took drink orders and then left as we looked at menu. The waiter returned with drinks and bread and took our order of chicken fried chicken, special of the day (beef tips & rice) and fish tacos - and that's the last we saw of him for 30 minutes. During that time, four tables were seated in our area and served their drinks and food before he finally came back out and told us our food was almost ready. 20 minutes after that, and no check-ins from the waiter, and with some of the tables seated after we had our drinks already paying and leaving, we got up to leave. We told the greeter we were leaving because of slow service - even though we seemed to be the only table not getting food. She said she was sorry but surprised because, according to her, "this never happens." We then spotted our waiter at the open window near the kitchen and told him we were leaving. He literally looked directly at us and said, "I told you it was almost ready." We had no more time so we just turned and left. The greeter again said she was sorry and that was that. Horrible, horrible service. There was never any arguing or anything like that and it was just like he forgot to turn in our order or something but never offered an explanation or apology other than saying "it will be ready in a few minutes." The other guys I was with might try the place again but I'm done. In my world, you screw up and own it and try to make it right - in their world, they apparently don't care. That's an attitude I can avoid because there are plenty of other lunch options in town.

Our entire family loved this home-style restaurant! The service was spectacular and our food was really good! Very family and kid friendly. Dress casual!
