    Pros

    The owners are wonderful! Some of the kindest people I know. The coworkers are also very nice and fun. It has a family feel.

    Cons

    The days are long. Shifts can start at 7AM and go till 3PM. It's prettying tiring especially on busy summer weekend. I wish the pay was a little more.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay of host/hostess or give them a percentage of tips. They don't get enough credit for the work they put in.

    Pros

    The tips are good and hours are good plus you get a free item from the menu for lunch break that's really it.

    Cons

    Boss and coworkers are horrible. Everyone is miserable and it's very stressful. They chew you up and spit you out. Newcomers are treated like dirt. Fast paced and super busy at night when you're the only waitress working.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all the old timers and get new management
