I bought this before a large dinner party, to expand the amount of table seating I had. The table is good quality, sets up easily, is stable, and (depending on the size of your chairs) you should be able to fit 4 people down each side. 3, minimum, no matter how big your chairs are. The table legs don't take up a lot of space, so even if someone is straddling the legs that are in the middle of the table, its not a big deal. The table is lightweight but sturdy. It seemed wider than it looked in the picture - plenty of room for adults and their plates.
