Many of our kitchens are in open view of our guests and line cooks must be comfortable working in view of everyone.

Prep cooks come in early to prepare raw ingredients that are used by line cooks during service.

Strong knife skills, organization, and accuracy in reading recipes are all additional skills required to be successful. Outstanding prep cooks will have the opportunity to grow with our company and be cross-trained in other positions.
Dishwashers – This is a hard work!! The classic entry level position in the kitchen that has launched the careers of many Executive Chefs. Runs the dish machine and insures that the temperature and chemicals are at safe levels. Also washes all pots, pans, cutting boards, and other items from the prep and line cooks. Takes out all the trash, mops all the floors, and keeps the dish room clean and organized. Must be able to handle the heat of the kitchen and maintain a fast pace.
Servers – Charming & Gracious…Organized & Efficient…True Team Players!! Those are the traits that make for a great server. The lifeblood of every full service restaurant as they are the “SALES FORCE” that interacts with every guest who walks through our door. At any point in time, you are juggling multiple tables/guests, answering in depth questions about food and drinks, giving the kitchen the detailed information needed to produce outstanding food, and all with a smile on your face. As if that weren’t enough – accurately handling cash and credit cards, completing running side duties, helping to deliver food to all tables, and assisting in the pre-bussing and setting of new tables…and all with a smile on your face. Control the timing of service, handle additional special requests, deal immediately with any unhappiness, and all with a smile on your face.
Bartenders – Energetic & Enthusiastic…Organized & Efficient…Counselor & Comedian!! Take every skill needed to be a great server and then add the need to know hundreds of drink recipes, in depth knowledge of wine, beer, and boutique liquors. For 50+ years, the brightest stars in every restaurant earned their way behind the bar and rightfully so. Showmanship, flair, speed, accuracy, and the confidence to be surrounded on all fronts by guests and servers. Bartenders must be respected for their high standards, depth of knowledge, and integrity as they are called on to insure the safe and legal serving of alcohol to our guests. Are you current on world events? Sports? Celebrity gossip? Conversations on these and other topics could come in handy when you’re behind the bar.
Host/Hostess – Charming & Gracious…Organized & Efficient…Smiling ALL the time!! The host stand is your domain and literally controls the pace and tone of the entire restaurant. Our Host staff is the first and last contact with every guest and our opportunity to show the warmth and friendliness that each deserves. Accuracy with reservations is critical, accuracy with special requests is critical, accuracy in the rotation of seating and fairness to servers is critical. Our staff must be comfortable talking about the daily specials that Chef has created. They also insure that the public restrooms remain spotless, that the entry way doors and windows are clean, and that every menu presented is as good as new.
Bussers – Fast – Accurate – Quiet. The primary responsibility is to reset tables in a speedy, professional, and accurate manner. Our bussers support the servers in the restaurant as they assist in clearing dishes and glasses, refill water glasses, and keeps floors clean.
