10 Months In Review

10 Months In Review

So I usually try to keep my posts to a short length, something easy to read, light, nothing too serious… then of course I didn’t blog for months at a time.  Mostly because I just didn’t know what to say.  A few people want me to just talk about the food, because we are a restaurant.  But we are also first time entrepreneurs....

How to keep your New Years Resolution and still go out to eat?!?!!?

How to keep your New Years Resolution and still go out to eat?!?!!?

We know half of the joy of eating out is spending time with people you enjoy and not having to clean up after!  Someone asked me recently how to eat out if you are on a diet that isn’t considered consistent with what your restaurant is known for.  So, here are some of the facts....

Happy New Year!

New Fall Hours!!

September is always a time of renewal and change for me, too many years of school maybe....but I always think that in September it's time to look at a few things and see where you should go from here...

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

If you have been in the restaurant or seen the pictures we post, you will notice we have a lot of young staff.  I feel like I need to go around and take a few more pictures lately to introduce you to them.  But Darin and I have a philosophy - that everyone needs to learn somewhere.....

I enjoy feedback - I like to know when we are doing a good job, and when we aren't.  And so we have the option on Facebook, Yelp and now Trip Advisor to have you stop by our page and give us a review.

Our Seafood Menu!

Our Seafood Menu!

Well....it's mid July.  And it's been a while since I've blogged because, well, holy it's been busy!  This is a good problem to have but I admit blogging hasn't ended up high on my priority list.  You know what else has slipped my list - telling everyone about our great seafood menu for summer!

2017 Summer Transformation!

2017 Summer Transformation!

Well some summer weather has finally arrived – and our patio furniture has been dragged out of storage, cleaned up and all ready to go…!!

FOOD!

FOOD!

We have been open just over 2 months and while there have been some hiccups I think we are, for the most part, getting it right. A big part of that is our commitment to fresh food.....

Meet our Staff!

Meet our Staff!

I figure it's beyond time to introduce you to our staff who have been hard working for the last 51 days - yup, we've been open 51 days now and got through burger love!

We currently have a staff of 25 - and will need more for the summer!  A full 10 are missing from pictures - either well deserved days off or recovering from setting day - a number of our staff also are working fisher men and women.

There are the hostesses - a group of young girls who are happy to seat you and get you anything that you need - and when needed jump in and clean, wash dishes, mop floors, answer the phones and take take out orders!

Dakota and Shea, a hostess and a waitress, are available for our francophone guests. Sarah Jane (another hostess, not pictured) also speaks french.

Our front of house staff are a mix of new servers and experienced ones. We have thrown a lot of new processes and technology at them and they have performed admirably.

We also have an amazing back of house staff that has taken everything we have thrown at them - including a popular burger for burger love only 21 days into the business.

This crew, including the ones who aren't pictured, are the heart and soul of what makes Lot 45 run - and we are so proud of all of their hard work and dedication and look forward to the coming summer season.

Cheers!
