    Pros

    Good tips, flexible hours and good management

    Cons

    Too much work, they got rid of bussers now we clean our own tables, run our own food, expo our own salads etc, never got a pay raise with all the extra work, also bread, I hate free bread and ppl who get mad that I can't give them enough free bread bc I'm too busy cleaning up after ur unruly children.

    Pros

    Very few pros if any.

    Cons

    Management is inadequate at best. Corporate structure should focus less on cutting labor hours and more on how properly trained management could save money long term. Managers act very childish and are extremely unprofessional. Servers have more management qualities than the actual managers possess.

    Advice to Management

    Take a professional approach to your job.

    Pros

    Instant take home pay with tips. Original proprietor was great we had a very positive and uplifting work environment with trust worthy and helpful management until he was pushed to retire.

    Cons

    New Proprietor was selected due to politics. Became very toxic very fast in less than a year and a half over 90% of employees have quit or been wrongly fired before they could. Company is also more concerned about saving a few bucks then anything else.

    Pros

    nothing at all is good about this place
    \

    Cons

    They tease you with starting in the to-go room with a promise to make it onto the floor and never deliver. In the to-go room tips, which are few, are shared meaning you do not make minimum wage. It is illegal, but they do it anyway.
