I was a server at this establishment for five and a half years and was, just recently, rehired. After sitting down with a manager and coming to an agreement on the matter of scheduling, I was given a number of shifts and was to report on an agreed date for first day of work. However, because of a power dispute over "proceedure", which was virtually non existent [proceedure] prior to this event, I received a phone call 5 days later, regretfully informing me that the owner did not agree to the general manager's decision [to rehire]. During the 5 days mentioned above, I made arrangements to give up an internship due to concearns of future schedule conflicts and with the understanding that I'd be tripling my weekly earnings. As a result of an administrative dispute, an arbitrary "proceedure" was then put into effect and executed without any consolation for the adverse effects that this may cause in my life.

Despite these events, I still give this restaurant a fair rating. It is fun and the drinks are great, but above and beyond that, the owners unwarranted abuse of employee rights is non-condusive to a positive atmosphere. Great people, powerful drinks, adequate food, and an absolute blast; However, resist the temtation to fill out an application.
