Dining out with coupons?

I know restaurants put coupons out to increase business. My husband and I will at times use coupons if it's convenient and we almost always order drinks and appetizers etc when we use one. I LOVE my in-laws, but they are so ridiculous about coupons. They try to get every last possible penny out of each use....if it's a buy one get one free, they want to know what everyone is ordering so they can order by price instead of what they actually want to eat. A couple of times I have felt completely embarrassed and full of pity for the server over their nit-picking. Any thoughts on restaurant coupons?
