A server's primary duty is to provide good customer service, take orders, and deliver food. Servers are expected to answer questions regarding the menu, the Old Rittenhouse Inn and Bayfield, WI. They work closely with other wait staff and the kitchen to ensure the restaurant is operated efficiently.

In our upscale restaurant, servers are more a part of the dining experience, offering suggestions and recommendations, such as wine pairings. They help to personalize the meal and their service is more attentive and formal.

Servers may need to meet with kitchen staff or managers daily prior to service to discuss that day's offerings. Topics in these meetings may include specials, food preparation, and ingredients used, especially if they may be a potential allergen to some diners. Additional duties of a restaurant server may also include:

  • Processing payment

  • Greeting customers

  • Setting tables

  • Side work as assigned


Restaurant server positions do not require any formal education. Previous experience is not required, but is a plus. Training is done on the job by experienced wait staff. An ability to provide good customer service, maintain a neat appearance, and remember patrons and their orders are essential.
