The 2nd-annual Servies are here! These awards are solely dedicated to front-of-house staff. We’re proud to give the hard-working folks who pour, serve, seat, and greet the recognition they deserve.

What Are
The Servies?


The Servies exist to celebrate front-of-house restaurant employees. We are committed to sharing the stories of these diverse, customer-facing staff who keep restaurants running, go above and beyond for customers, and bring their best attitudes to work, no matter what life throws at them.

How it works

Coworkers, customers, friends and family--anyone can nominate front-of-house staff to win a Servie. You can even nominate yourself! Then, our esteemed panel of judges select the finalists, and the public votes to determine the winners.
