Fun and energetic workplace for fast money
Server Assistant Manager/Bartender (Former Employee), Ankeny, IAJuly 19, 2014
Pros: money, fun, meet amazing people.
Cons: nights and weekends. no health insurance
You must work on bar side. That is where the money is made and the guest are the funnest. The regulars there genuinely care for you and will make your night everytime you walk in. Working nights and weekend get old but it is easy money and a smart person can make it go a long way.

Everyone who works there gives off a positive vibe to the people who come in and in turn give the same feeling right back. There is nothing there that does not give off a lively feel. You can come and enjoy everything about this place

A typical work day would be, you come into work, prep food, take orders, clean and go home. You have the ability to learn how to make many differnt foods from scratch fresh every day.

productive workplace
Bartender (Former Employee), Garden City, KSJuly 2, 2014
Pros: discounted food, got to meet great people, had my customers who would come back to see me
Cons: short breaks, long hours, late hours
Go into work ready hair up with a bottle opener and wine key. First counted cash drawer and assigned a drawer then checked off morning bartender and made sure all shift change duties were complete. Begin making ticket drinks for service bar and for bar top. My co workers were great except we were short handed. The hardest part of the job is carrying – more... the kegs but I always got a man to do that for me! The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to meet new people and getting to know what drinks they like so when they come back you have a good idea and they come back to see you! – less

Casual dining bar and grill with an upbeat college crowd
Service Manager (Former Employee), Conway, ARJune 23, 2014
I found this company to be a great place for advancement and opportunity. I started out as a server after retiring from military service and I felt right at home. The management staff was top notch, they made work fun for the employees and the guests by hosting seasonal events and occasionally dressing up in costumes. I was promoted to shift leader – more... and then full time manager before I was given my own store. I would still be with the company if I had not moved out of state. – less

management isn't very good
Cook (Former Employee), Olathe, KSFebruary 6, 2014
they are not very clear about what they want and expect you to perform tasks within your station as well as others stations and when you get over time they complain about it. I didn't like the fact that I was never offered a raise even though I did a lot of great things while I was there and then my hours were cut in half as soon as I asked about a – more... raise. – less

Server (Former Employee), Evansville, INJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: the teamwork, enviornment, respect and opportunies.
Cons: no benefits
Employees were well treated and respected.

Management although strict, they were always team players and helpful no matter how busy or distracted they were.

The enviornment was well maintained by all employees and management, going to work for this employer was like being involved with a second family.

HI welcome to Old Chicago
Hostess (Former Employee), Denver, COJanuary 26, 2014
Pros: getting my very first job
Cons: not enough hours
I was the dinner rush hostess. I learned how to problem solve working here you would have a big family come in and no were to put them for 10 minutes or so explaining to the customer that there is a wait. I loved management ever I got to see them since they would always leave at 4 pm and I usually started 4:30.
