[QUOTE=gingles;945202]Interesting, must have been a slow time of year? Two years ago we were there for dinner and there was a standby line of probably 30 or more none of whom had the slightest chance of getting in. It was September.[/QUOTE]
Gingles, you were there, as so many were, during free dining month.
That alone is enough to skew things. In September 2007, we too were told that we could “try” to walk up as there are often cancellations.
I am a firm believer in having reservations for any sit down meal, just so I can be assured that I will get a table. (Think of the scene in Summer Rental with John Candy and his family waiting for 3 hours for a table only to watch the lobster tank get emptied before they could be seated)
