Celebrate Your Waitstaff Today
National Waitstaff Day is observed each year on May 21 and was created to show appreciation to and thank all waitstaff for making our dining experiences enjoyable ones. 

Part of the experience – and the fun – of dining in a restaurant is getting served and not having to cook or do the dishes, but it’s important to treat your waitstaff with respect. Many servers make less than minimum wage and depend on the tips diners leave, which are often split with bussers and bartenders. This is why it's so important to remember to leave a generous tip!

Visit one of our member restaurants today to show your appreciation!
