Latest American Family Table news and reviews
American Family Table strongly reminded Nichole of the Greek family restaurant where she worked for one summer, but that didn't dampen her enjoyment too much. (The burgundy helped - it was room temperature and cheap, but worth it.) She liked the hammered brass portrait of Mother Theresa and the giant gumball machine that looked like a huge Tom Servo.
The food was inexpensive and decent. JM's fries arrived a little cold and the waitress disappeared for a long while between dropping off the entrees and checking back after we were ready to get going.
