Great food, terrible corporate feel.

Server/Bartender (Current Employee) Grand Rapids, MI

ProsThe food is amazing and the commitment to quality is excellent. All of my team members are like my family and the service is consistent.

ConsThe corporation has their hand in EVERYTHING. "Anything goes" is ridiculously taken advantage of by customers and the clientele includes people who can't afford to eat at a real nice restaurant but don't want to go to Red Lobster.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your employees and give them free reign once in a while. Back up your employees when the customer is being ridiculous and out of line, instead of giving the customer free food.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
