As with any workplace, especially a restaurant, cleanliness is important. We work each day to keep the restaurant looking like we would want our home to look. If we see that something needs cleaned up, we clean it. We do not put off keeping the restaurant looking fresh and updated because bottom line: Our customer satisfaction is key. Without our customers, we would be nowhere. We want our customers to feel that they should dine with us because our restaurant is well taken care of by a staff that really cares.
