I have been a regular at Braxton for a few years, and I'm definitely addicted to their soda biscuits and excellent Salmon dishes. After a long day at client In Lombard, all I wanted was a quiet good meal. I went to Braxton around 6:00 and asked for a table for one. The hostess asked me if I wanted to sit at the bar, and I answered no, I really wanted a quiet table. So she sat me at one of the noisy bar tables even though they have a large and beautiful dining room. When I explained I wanted one of the dining room seats I was told by the hostess there were none available, yet I saw couple after couple enter the dining room from the seat they gave me which overlooked the hostess station right next to the drafty door. About a month ago, I had the same experience so this is is not an accident, but consistently poor service.
Pros: great seafood, even better buiscuits
Cons: Service, Bad seating policies
