Not bad but not good either
In truth working here is not bad, This is dependant on who you work with though. Most cooks are good people that understand team work and will step up to help each other get through the rough times. There is a great deal of good memories with fellow cooks and servers and in truth the people are what makes it. Managers can be a flip of a coin though sadly. There are good ones there that care about their staff but sadly the head company seems to enjoy replacing them with bad ones. Pay is okay but it is very hard to get a raise. One time we where told the new tip out we where getting was going to be our raise. A system that takes a percentage automatically from the servers digital sales. They have on the ad that there is overtime pay. This is a half truth really because head office will ensure that no one gets to overtime if they can. In the 7 years i worked there I have only got overtime maybe twice. One thing to note as well is that you will never be allowed to know when your shift is done. They operate under your start time is this time and your done when we say your done. So often your best to just assume your closing even if you opened.

Fun place to work part time, pay should be higher
This was a good place to work for a first job. I made a lot of friends and learned how to problem solve and succeed in the workforce. The biggest downside is the low pay, but there is a tip pool even if you’re not a server.

It's great.
If you want a part-time and only get minimum wage then this place is for you. Co-workers are amazing, management is lackluster. I learned a lot here. I've learned all the stations. If you show them you're willing to learn then they will train you on all stations. But don't expect any big raise.

Good place to learn and grow
Good training, good place to learn and grow. Pay isn’t the best and working late sucks. If you want to learn the basics by the books this is a great restaurant to start at.
