It's a very old-school work/dining atmosphere. Menus are always all the same, and there isn't much room for new ideas and creativity. Very old school in terms of male/female roles and appearances. It's a buyer beware type of place to work, you ought to know going into it that they're going to ask you to wear your hair/makeup a certain way etc. and that the food is never going to be a very exciting product to sell.
