Stout's Island Lodge

Server/Bartender

Talented servers are excellent multitaskers, problem solvers, and handle stress with a can-do attitude and a smile. Our servers will have the opportunity to serve a variety of different foods, wines, and beers. They are expected to have a working knowledge of the items they are serving and how the tastes and flavors complement one another. Our chef assists in this area to help make sure our servers are prepared.

Our restaurant serves all three meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  At breakfast, we serve a hot breakfast menu.  Lunch is more casual cuisine, and dinner is fine dining.  We also service many events, especially weddings.  These events can range in size from 10 to 175.

We have a few different serving shifts, they are as follows:

AM Server: Works breakfast and lunch and helps set up for daily events.  Shifts between 6:45 AM and 4:00 PM, basic bartending experience desired.  Part-time and full-time positions available.

PM Server: Works dinner and evening events. Shifts between 12:00 PM and 11:00 PM (sometimes later, depending on events); serving and bartending experience strongly preferred.  Part time and full-time positions available.  

We do not have a full time bartending position available as our servers double as the bartender. Most nights are not busy enough to have a fully devoted bartender, so instead we train our servers in as bartenders who can make their own drinks. During peak season, we will rotate servers to be scheduled as the bartender for dinner service.
