Sociable Kitchen & Tavern
Servers, bartenders, and hosts
(1 yr Experience)

The Charcoal Group is currently looking for enthusiastic, motivated and lively hospitality leaders to join our team.


In over 60 years of service, the Charcoal Group continues to champion our beliefs that genuine, enlightened hospitality for our guests accompanied by natural, locally sourced, house-made food is what sets us apart. We are looking for career-minded individuals who are looking to lead our teams as we continue to expand our one of a kind restaurants.


You should understand that "real people" work nights, weekends and holidays. You should be "OK" with computers, but support the belief that CTRL/ALT/DELETE is a completely acceptable way to restart a computer. You should be awesome at skipping excuses and heading right to solutions. You should be a highly efficient individual who never turns their head from a standard. The word MOD should not offend you (on the outside). IBU helps you decide on a beer and the word "adjunct" actually raises some ire in your belly.


If the proceeding (or parts of it....) describes you, please email your resume and anything else you would like us to know about you to:
