Senior Training Manager
Growing Restaurant Group

Our group of restaurants originated from one of our founders’ passion for great food, craft beer, and a thoughtful bar program. We wanted to maintain a neighborhood feel and mix it with the laid back vibe of the beach. Nearly a decade ago we opened our first restaurant on the beach and have since grown to 7 locations…with more under construction! We feature a diverse craft beer menu, an eclectic, from-scratch menu, and the ability to change with the time, whether it’s new cooking techniques or educating our bar staff on new brew. What has fueled our growth? It’s been our dedication to our food, our guests, and our employees. If you’re ready to make an impact with a young, dynamic company, we’re looking for you!
