I think The View just can't make up their mind. Do we want to be a fancy restaraunt or just a regular sit down restaraunt? Let's be both!
While the food is very plain the price certainly isn't. You will pay high end prices for stuff you could easily make at home. Cold sandwiches are almost $5. Some of the salads are MORE than $5. And don't expect much from the waitresses. We saw our waitress once (when she dropped our food off) and we practically had to chase her down to get refills.
