Appears my earlier answer did not process. I was an out of town visitor to this restaurant and have no idea if coupons are offered. I would suggest calling restaurant directly - they were very friendly

Every single time we've eaten there, and we live nearby, the service has been top notch. Must have just been a bad day.

I think so. However, it might be peak brunch time for them so perhaps order some food as well, even if you just take it home for later? I was there, last week, on Sunday, about noon and it was full.
