Being called a "game set" (on the box) or "lawn furniture set" (overstock) instead of "dining set" made me wonder if this was going to be an awkward height or something. I don't know why they can't technically call it a dining set, but as far as I can tell, it is a dining set! Hole for umbrella, table has feet that can be adjusted to allow for slightly uneven ground, table size has plenty of room for 4 to dine without overlapping plates or anything. A great set - the feet all have pads so that you aren't scraping iron legs on concrete. Color is nice. Assembly was fine - just use the shorter screws for the table top-leg connection, the longer screws for farther down on the table legs (not mentioned in instructions). Highly recommend.
