Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kansas Overall a great product
I rarely write reviews but I wanted to respond to some of the other comments. I did a lot of research and selected this set for the value (cost and quality).
Assembly was fairly straight forward. You have to have some patience as it is time consuming(the only reason I gave a 4 rating). All of the holes lined up just fine. You have to put all of the screws in loose until you get all parts assembled and then tighten everything up. If you tighten each one as you assemble, some of the holes will not line up correctly. This method made the set very solid.
We also like the high top table and chairs. The height works well for us.
Overall, I would recommend this to others.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dnaliz Nice table but
This set is nice looking but a few of the screw holes were stripped and we had to modify to put them together.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bruce10 Nice table w/ a Caveat
All-in-all a nice table that seems reasonbly constructed at a nice price point. With that being said, it wasn't clearly stated in the description that it was a bar height table versus standard height. Obviously my fault for not looking closer at the measurements but a little more description would have been helpful and the picture on the website definitely doesn't do it justice. Needless to say, the wife was not happy.
With that being said, we broke out the chop saw and cut everything down by 5 inches across the board. A lot of work to modify it (lots of filing) but everything went smoother than expected and you would never know the difference now.
Just want to write a review so everyone who is considering this purchase is aware. Otherwise, I'm very pleased with the purchase.

Sat in the chair once and the slot broke and im 130 lbs. You can pick the chair up with one fingers. Table top was scratched. It's is just so flimsy. Returned!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AlFrescoDiner Very dissappointed :(
The construction of this set was terrible, we had to drill the holes which were missing for the chair assembly and the table top corner was completely crushed to top it off...replacement would take nearly 6 weeks and summer would be over by then. The chairs also felt rather flimsy. For the price I expected much better. Sorry Home Depot this one is no good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WH2012 Great set for a decent price!
Very happy with this set. I did not realize it was a high top table with bar height chairs when I ordered it (oversight on my part), but very happy with it.
This was the cheapest 9 piece set that I could find for a decent price. The cushions are nice and thick… good quality. The chairs are very comfortable.
Very happy with our purchase!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BillofOhio A good high dining set
This fits our deck that is 15' above the ground and slopes down. Before we could hardly see the lake that is beyond because of the railing. This works very well. Unfortunately, the top was damaged when we received it, but the customer support people at Home Depot have been working with us to get a new top.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carl Not High-End, but Not Bad At All
I'm quite pleased with this purchase. I don't think you can beat the value. I was struck by how light the chairs are when assembled, and was initially worried that they wouldn't be sturdy, but they are adjustable to be level with any surface, and I'd have no worries putting 200+ pounds of person an any of the chairs. The table provides a big surface, and is easy to clean.
Some other reviews seemed to indicate that the set wouldn't hold up under rain. Granted, I live in a relatively dry climate, but we've had two weeks of rain, and I have had no problems - no strange runoff, and the cushions are very water-resistant. That said, I'll probably store the cushions until it dries up a little.
The set does have a large footprint, as some have noted. Just look at the dimensions, and plan for an extra foot all the way around, as the chairs won't fit completely under the table. Remember, you're getting a 9-piece set presumably because you have space to fill with it.
Oh, yea, assembly was a pain. It is not difficult, but it is done almost entirely with a small allen wrench. if you have some kind of power tool to replace that, you'll be much better off. Took me almost 8 hours to assemble everything.
