3 families, lots of children. The service was SUPER slow and the waitress in no way liked our children. The food actually below average. Will not return anytime soon.

We are coming into town for the DCI Championships and need a place for a large group of parents to get together for an early lunch on Friday August 12. Everyone would need to be on separate checks but would probably be a group of anywhere from 25-50 people. This is the first time we have all tried to get together so not sure just how many people will be able to make it. But we need a definite place and then can get a more accurate number. Is this something your restaurant could handle on a Friday?
