No, I think what was mentioned was that people liked the food but said it could have a better atmosphere.

I dunno about you but I myself prefer to not feel like I am sitting in a wide open room with 400 other people while eating my dinner, I prefer booths, or smaller rooms with less tables.

Maybe some of your own advice should be heeded? Enjoy the food, and don't worry that some people prefer a slightly different atmosphere to enjoy their food in.

OK, thats' cool. Flip it on me like I'm the one with a problem. Gotcha. Last time I checked I wasn't the one who was bothered by a ridiculous "atmosphere" problem. You enjoy your booth somewhere else, and I'll enjoy the Prime Rib at Boone's.

I don't have a problem. I'm not the one getting all up tight that someone mentioned the atmosphere of a restaurant wasn't the best. You are.

People can get a cheeseburger anywhere, ok? They come to Chotchkie's for the atmosphere and the attitude.

I won't quit going to boones because of the atmosphere because their food is great. Like kickstand stated I would prefer to have a more private feeling dining experience. It is a clean nice restaurant but it feels very dated and dull.
