      Pros

      you can make ok money with a little bit of tables do to check average but its not at all what it should be based on the quality of food and atmoshpere we provide for our guess. If you are a stand out employee and i mean really stand out by almost multitasking yourself to death, I do see that there is room for growth and promotions but that is easily over shadowed by the very bias way they choose who gets that promotion....

      Cons

      Managing Partners as well as management definitely needs work all around. Like how to deal with certain situations Properly and Professionally and not like we are at a back yard family function where profanity, thrown objects, name calling, belittling, degrading and talking down to staff in front of other staff member as if to humiliate and show who's boss. Our work environment shouldn't be like an episode of HELLS KITCHEN...

      Advice to Management

      Remember that you are what is considered a leader. If your displaying negative behaviors and feedback consistantly to your staff and disrespecting them you will never get a team that works cohesively together. Just because you dress well and look the part doesn't mean your carrying out true qualities in a leader, it means on paper your qualified to do the part but your actually not displaying or following those principle...

        Great company, great people, great benefits. They really care about their employees and put people first. The food is great and get very few complaints.

        Cons

        Long hours. I've worked for multiple restaurants that are open early and stay open late, and I made the mistake of assuming that since they weren't either, that the hours may be better. I was wrong...The hours are not ideal. Opens are usually 8am or 9am to 7pm or 8pm and closes are usually 12pm or 1pm to 1130pm+...All of the other concepts I've worked for provided hours allowing...

        Amazing company to work for! I have worked there on and off for over 11 years. They are always motivating you to do your best and there are plenty of opportunities to move up in the company fi you are willing to work hard.

        Cons

        Nights and weekends Being on your feet for long hours

        Pros

        Best company to work for if your a hard worker and love to work in high stress situations and work directly with staff members and customers

        Cons

        long hours just the same as any restaurant. Compensation could be a lot better for the amount of work that gets done on a daily basis.

        Advice to Management

        loosen up on lower management and a lot less on micromanaging and allow each individual to use their own ideas and recipies to help staff

        I have been working at Bonefish Grill full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        The people I work with are the best. The food is good but not always consistent. Bar drinks are some of the best around. Hours are reasonable.

        Cons

        COUPONS, gives us that "Red Lobster" vibe. Tips are way down from the past years. Hosts double as bus people low pay. Long ticket time, constant menu changes, no growth potential even though they tell you there is. Managers work long hours and are required to work the line to save money. A great deal of pre-made toppings and sauces. Bonefish has gotten away from what they were...

        Advice to Management

        Follow thru on what you say!! Go to bat for us with our JVP instead of playing down someones value to your store. Be consistent with the rules for all which include dress code, being on time, no call no show. Set the example as a team player instead of "your way only" Say thank you!! Have meetings, teach backs. Step back and remember where you started. Lead by example.
