Bad experience at Crazy Burger/Narragansett

Our friends are about to have a baby and they wanted to go out for dinner once more before the baby came. They love Crazy Burger, so we drove down to Narragansett from Providence last Saturday.
We timed it badly, arriving at 7:15, it looked like they had just sat 3 larger tables. We were told that 3 other tables should be clearing out in 20 minutes, so we decided to stand and wait. 20 minutes later, 1 table did get up and a group of 3 ahead of us sat down. 25 minutes later we were still standing, waiting.
We finally noticed that a group that was sitting at the counter area weren't being served or eating. We asked about the wait and what was happening at the counter. The hostess told us, "Oh, they're a table of 5 ahead of you waiting for a table." We asked, "Can you eat at the counter? and were told "Yes, do you want me to ask them to move so you can eat?"
My friends husband was so angry that we had been standing (with a over due pregnant lady) for 45 minutes when there was counter space available for eating that was never offered to us, that we just left. We ended up eating at TRIO which was very good.
That just seemed really strange to me... why wouldn't you offer anyone who came in, the counter for dinner? Some would say no, but others would take it (like us). They let that space go unused, when they could have had customers being served there....
Has anyone had a similar experience here? We usually have a good time there... I doubt we'll be going back anytime soon....
