    I have been working at Eddie Merlots full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have awesome co workers, potential to make $$$, beautiful decor

    Cons

    tipping out a large amount when I consistently get my own water, bread, clear my tables, box up food, run my food, I literally do EVERYTHING myself everyday because its quicker than tracking a SA down and even if I find one half the time they never do what I ask.Also there is a huge amount of laziness( with everyone) that has taken over and management isn't doing anything about it. There are like 3 or 4 of us that end up doing everything. Happy hour sucks, which can make the lounge suck. Cheap people come so they can eat at an expensive restaurant for next to nothing. Be prepared to get run to death for a 4 top whose bill is 70 bucks, and don't forget you have to split that check 4 ways and make sure everyone gets their individual points!

    Pros

    Food is great. Guests are great. Also one of the best looking restaurants, beautiful inside.

    Cons

    Slowest poorest ran restaurant company I’ve ever worked for. They are owned by subway ppl and they run it like a subway. If you want to work for the subway of steakhouses then come work here. No marketing, no communication from management, corporate seems not to care about our location. They even run contests that they don’t pay out! Super high turnover in mgmt and FOH staff
