    Checked to see if tea was sweetened at restaurant. The girl assured me it was unsweetened. As I am diabetic, I could not drink the tea. I did not receive the potato salad at all. Out of my three items, I only had the sandwich to eat. I was not happy!

    They have plenty of staff and they sometimes let you wait in line because they act busy but when they finally acknowledge you are there. They sound out of breath and say," How can I help you." Despite standing there the whole time just taking to their team mates. I really like the food and drinks there. I had stopped coming for a while hoping it would get better, some has improved but still something never change. I've tried avoiding the restaurant all together by ordering online but it seems when you order online or by phone, it still take a while to receive your order when getting there. Don't get me wrong, just being acknowledging that we will put your order together for freshness is Great but tell me, please.
    I asked for Sherry Shallot Dressing to go with my Pecanberry Salad in place of the Raspberry Vinaigrette. I didn't get it. I asked for sour cream for our baked potatoes and didn't receive it. I also ordered a slice of carrot cake. My mothers (who has Alzheimer's) favorite dessert. When I arrived to have dinner with my Mom, NO carrot cake. Apparently the young man at the drive through window was "supposed" to tell me that they were out and to give me another option. He didn't! When I called in to notify the restaurant of these discrepancies, I was told that they could write my name down and I could correct it the next day. I don't live in Portland and therefore can't correct it the next day. Then the person on the phone hung up without taking my name. I've always had excellent service at McAlisters and I know everyone has an off day but this was TERRIBLE and VERY DISAPPOINTING.
    I was able to customize my meal tailored to my current eating restrictions. Although, it was not an option on the menu they ensured me they would try their best to do what I requested. They definitely executed that with no problem. The staff has always been wonderful!
    Love the environment and the way the people here conduct business. They are always nice and considerate and ask about your food and if you need anything else.
    Great staff and very good food.
    Good deli and good food.
    A young lady was cleaning the dining room fixtures, wiping down walls and tables. When I spoke to her, she was very friendly with her reply.
    Everything was great. Staff was very attentive and they made us feel very welcome.
