However, in order to do it, she has to keep the children a secret from her father. Upon leaving, we were charged a 20% gratuity and 7% tax! No, there was still an upcharge! Upon entering myself and other guests walked around kind of lost because we couldn't figure out where exactly a hostess would be or if we were to just seat ourselves. Skip this venue and go to a restaurant that has good food and cares about customer service. Everyone really enjoyed what they ordered too, so money well spent.
However, the kids are kept hidden in a room just below the attic, visited only by the grandmother, and their mother, who becomes less and less concerned about them and their failing health, and more concerned about herself and the inheritance she plans to win back from her dying father, to the point of murder. Farm to table, fresh and delicious offerings- hard to decide between salads, sandwiches, quiches and daily specials.

The test audience, mostly consisting of female adolescents the same demographic the book series was targeted towards , reported in test cards that they were revolted by the scenes and another where Corrine disrobes in front of her father to be whipped by her mother. To top off a great meal, I knew they must have great home-made desserts, as well, and sure enough, Mary named them all to me. I was highly disappointed with our experience. I have handled Groupon for my job and believe me, if you want to identify additional charges you can! Once we were seated and had ordered our food, it took almost 45 minutes for us to receive it.

As they are leaving, Cathy, not wanting her mother to get away with what she did to them and leaving them to suffer by their grandmother's hands, tells Chris they need to find their grandfather and tell him the truth so Corrine would lose her inheritance; they had come across him sleeping in his room once before while out and investigating their mother's absence.
