Host / Hostess

Edgewater, New Jersey, United States

At the Original Pancake House, guests enjoy a warm sophisticated atmosphere any time of day; during morning coffee, lunch with a colleague or brunch with family. Our menu combines the very best of everything you love about American breakfast cuisine. Our staff is the last piece of the puzzle that makes The Original Pancake House the greatest neighborhood restaurant.


We are looking for a Host / Hostess to join the team! The exceptional guest experience will be yours to create, while immersing yourself in the “little extras” that make The Original Pancake House Edgewater truly stand out.


What you'll do:

    • Welcome and greet guests upon arrival
    • Make all our guests feel comfortable and let them know you’re there to personally take care of them
    • Know regular guests by name; know their preferences and needs
    • When on a wait, record guest’s name and number of people in party, provide guests with an estimated waiting time, and seat them as soon as possible when a table becomes available
    • Seat guests based on guest preferences while balancing guest flow
    • Present guests with a menu when they are seated, and ensure the table looks great and is up to our standards
    • Thank guests as they leave and invite them to return


You need to be:

A person who loves food and has the ability to create a welcoming environment. You should have at least 1 year of experience in a high volume restaurant. You have excellent English communication skills, and you have the desire to work as part of a team. Standing for long periods of time and able to lift up to 25 pounds shouldn’t bother you, and working weekends or some holidays should be fine too.
