    I worked at Grill Concepts part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Their steaks are amazing, they are aged 28 days, thick, and really tender. When you order a Ribeye you get a 16 oz steak. Their food is consistent , their cajun tartar sauce is awesome, and their dessert portions are HUGE! Great restaurant, great bar and happy hour!

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of is that they are not all over the place, the chain has only a handful of locations.

    Advice to Management

    Make more Daily Grill locations!

    I worked at Grill Concepts part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    they do an employee meal for the lunch and dinner shift
    can potentially make good money especially during the lunch shift

    Cons

    well my employment ended there when they "accidentally" took me out the system and didn't pay me two pay periods in a row. i have worked many jobs in dc so if i was removed from the system (fired without notice essentially) i would have received a pay card with my last check immediately not badger the mgmt for 10 days. the manager also had a group chat with some servers where they would talk about other employees and make fun of people (one of the servers had lupus and she called him a crackhead) overall not a good environment to be in

    Advice to Management

    pay your employees
    unprofessional managers should be terminated not just demoted to bar tender
