    Pros

    Good money, beautiful "office", respect from management, easy to get time off

    Cons

    Have to tip out a very large percentage of server tips, including tipping the kitchen where the Crows nest should pay their cooks more and not rely on servers to. Being made to stand around when your section has not gotten any tables all day just so the management can feel safe should there be a sudden rush.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within. I have seen many deserving employees get turned down to their request for advancement.

    Pros

    The management was great here and the employees were all nice and friendly

    Cons

    This place draws a lot of out of town customers that are sometimes hard to work with

    Advice to Management

    Don't need to be so cut throat a little communication goes a long way


  3. Tourist trap, cheap clientele, management does not have servers' backs

    Pros

    Busier than most Santa Cruz restaurants. Long history continues to draw customers.

    Cons

    Draws a pretty cheap class of customer, especially tourists. Menu is overpriced. Management never really supports the staff in any type of conflict. Customer id always right to their face, and should be, but servers and bussers have been fired for issues that were obviously not the employee's fault.
