Job Posting for Server at The Pequot
We are looking for experienced servers for our seasonal restaurant on Fishers Island, NY. The Pequot is the only bar/restaurant on the island and operates from mid-May to mid-October. The restaurant has been here since the early 20th century with current ownership/management starting in 2016.
Housing is provided during the season. Volume is moderate between mid-May and late June and also between early September and mid-October. Volume is heavy in July and August. We are open for dinner only. No breakfast, no lunch. The bar is open late with the iconic light-up dance floor on Fridays and Saturdays.
Our staff is housed here on the premises above the restaurant and we have a great, cohesive team from year to year! The housing is dorm-style with a shared kitchen and we provide it free of charge with a $100 per month utility fee.
As a server, you would need to arrive for the daily meeting and family meal at 4:30 and you would finish between 9:30 and 10:30. Responsibilities include setup/breakdown of the server stations, end of night reports and tip adjustments, taking orders, running food, bussing tables, and assisting bar and kitchen departments when necessary. Tips are pooled and with tips, most servers make over $30 per hour. We have other jobs available in the restaurant such as dishwashing, bussing tables, and barbacking to combine with the server job if you want to work full time. The server job alone is around 30 hours per week.
Fishers Island is a very unique environment. It is natural, beautiful, and outside of the Pequot, generally very quiet as summer destinations go. It’s a very special place and those of us fortunate to have found it, love being here. If it sounds interesting to you, reach out and we can tell you more about it!
