    I worked at Stonewood Grill & Tavern part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent hours during season, great returning customers, chef was nice, kitchen crew was GREAT.

    Cons

    They changed stuff around every month, the pay for bussers was 1/4 of what the servers make even though bussers saved the servers butt alot of the time regardless of what they think, older customers are real spoiled, servers think they are better than others. picking favorites for the schedule

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone a shot at advancement, not just the people you favor. Don't abuse your power an show it in the schedule.

    I have been working at Stonewood Grill & Tavern part-time

    Pros

    walk-in and get hired on, especially "in season"
    busy "in season"
    laid back work atmosphere
    flexible schedule
    nice clientele
    closing shifts offer the opportunity for the most money (usually)

    Cons

    pay period (bi monthly) ends on Tuesday but paycheck doesn't deposit until the following Monday
    after tip out (20%) and taxes you can figure giving up 1/4 of what you make
    3 table sections can make for bad money nights
    Off season is DISMAL
    other corporate companies offer TONS more incentives/benefits

    Advice to Management

    stop with the ridiculous over-staffing (7 servers scheduled for 20 heads is ridiculous)

    I have been working at Stonewood Grill & Tavern full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best things about working BOH is that you get payed hourly. They are pretty flexable with hours. If you like to cook its a good starting place.

    Cons

    The benefits for BOH were dropped. The management does its best with what it has.

    Advice to Management

    If your employees arent happy your atmosphere will suffer as well. Better control over employees and product is key to loss prevention, not cutting portion size, raising prices, and denying raises to deserving, hard working individuals.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Stonewood Grill & Tavern full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Menu is relatively expensive offering steak and seafood ensuring higher check average. You can have less tables and still make great money. Your surrounding staff is typically very experienced in restaurant.

    Cons

    Management changed, part of the reason for leaving the company. When I visit I see new management again and it seems to have hurt their business overall. Making the restaurant not as busy. Seen regional managers visit, party and are very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your servers and bartenders! Most of my career we had a fantastic staff - most have gone on to sales / management / and career jobs. Customers see long lasting employees and regulars want to make a connection with the front of house staff. Be more lenient and keep the faces of the restaurant longer and happier.
