Stout's Island Lodge


Talented servers are excellent multitaskers, problem solvers, and handle stress with a can-do attitude and a smile. We like to think of our servers as performers, not just as people who take orders and bring food to the table. Like a performer, our servers must be able to judge their audience and exceed their expectations with their performance.
