I want to become a waiter, and I was wondering if it is worth it to get "certified" ?Will I learn much or will it be a waste of time and money?I feel that server certification is actually an inside joke, because the old guard learned on the job, and people new to the hospitality industry fall prey to the idea that the certification will help them get a job.I was looking at this company:http://www.servercertificationcorp.comThoughts,…Continue
I am just about to turn 21, and drinking is a pretty big part of the culture at the place I work.I am concerned that my drink will be spiked at work, people like to pick on me and tease me, normally in a funny way.But I am concerned once that I am legal drinking age someone will serve me a spiked drink where I work because it is now "legal" even though I know I do not drink because of heavy alcoholism on both sides of my family.Am I just paranoid, or is this a legit concern?If this did happen…Continue

It's always nice to see someone get happy from the food you serve them. Just about everyone has a favorite thing to eat at a particular place, but don't you just loathe the person who has an infantile infatuation with something at your restaurant, and they make a big jack-ass out of themselves about it every single fuckin' time they visit?You have to hear the story about why it is so meaningful to them, and they modify the order to such douche-bag specs that you're certain to do something they…Continue

So i bring to the attention of the manger that my table who ordered 2…Continue
Gosh, this seems like common sense but apparently, the country is full of dumb-asses now. It is NEVER EVER okay to poke, grab, tug, smack, or hit your server! Maybe it's the "low class" style restaurant that attracts that "type" of person, I don't know. Currently, i'm stranded in a "glorified Waffle House type" restaurant and that's the kind of customer we get. When did it become okay to physically assault waiters? Yesterday, one of the girls came up to me and told me that she just got smacked…Continue

Most normal people do not like to be a bad guest at a restaurant. Most of us would like to show courtesy and decorum when going out to eat. We…
Bartenders and Waiters today are taking their jobs more professionally and seeing it as a true and honest working career, which in my case behind the bar includes the practice of creative mixology as culinary art. Management and ownership want it to be perceived in just that way in hopes of…Continue

When diners come into our restaurants, they're paying for more than just the food. With the prevalence of higher end fast food and ready-to-cook grocery store fare, all available for a fraction of a sit-down restaurant's prices, the food itself you serve doesn't represent the real value. The value is in the service,…Continue

Summertime offers several opportunities for get-togethers and cookouts. I could argue successfully that the best get-togethers and cookouts are hosted by those of us in the restaurant business. Pitch-in dishes are brought not just to contribute, but are a presentation of our own cooking skills in the attempt to earn bragging rights. In addition, we all get the chance to learn something new, whether it's a cocktail recipe, a cooking technique, or an odd yet tasty…Continue
