heard the tannery west waitresses aren't allowed to keep tips, the owner gets them. and the waitresses are only paid 7 bux an hour. Knowing that i don't think i will support a restaurant with such low values and treats their own employees like that over a dollar. CUSTOMERS KEEP YOUR MONEY IN YOUR POCKET CUZ YOU AREN'T DOING ANYTHING BUT PAYING SOMEBODY WHO DIDN'T EARN IT

ohhh noo
dont encourage someone to do that!!!!
its just a fair way to keep all the waitresses paid even the ones with the unpopular section. last i heard waitresses are only paid $2.23 an hour hear in tn because they get tips. but not all make good tips.
jus sayin

If thats the case..the owner should split the tips (they all worked for in the first place) and divide between the waitresses daily. I know the owner and yes i believe it. pure greed!

Support what restaurant? Like every other mom and pop place in Greeneville Tannery West isn't open enough hours in the week to do the community much good. Top that off with the name...which gives no indication that it is a restaurant...and I wonder how long we will have to worry about how much money waitresses there make.
Finally, if the waitresses are unhappy with their pay, they should find another job. If you agree to work for the wage, you should do the job without complaint. It does not do the poor waitress any good for the community not to eat there, then he/she will be make $0.

Most waitresses do only make $2.35 or less an hour, but get to keep half or all their tips. To make $7 as a waitress, I can't say is good, but is alot better than most places! My question would be why as a waitress are you complaining to your customers about your pay or is the person who started this an ex employee?

Most of the people tip so poorly in Gville, I don't know that this is such a bad thing. Might end up with more $.

the general customers that go to the Tannery are lawyers and business folk so im sure they would like to know that the tips they give out arent going to who they think it is. If i were a customer anywhere and i knew that the waitress didnt get to keep the tip then i wouldnt tip or atleast not tip what i would as if she were getting it.
screw the tannery

Quit and report them to the labor board, just let your customers know not to tip. tell them the prick you work for uses the tips to fund his mistresses drug habit

You people really need to find something better to do than complain about the person that owns and runs Tannery West. Whether the waitress gets to keep her tips or not is not an issue, because she is up front with you about what is going on and why she runs it the way she does. I agree with Really and Melissa on this one, if you are unhappy with the way things are going there, find a new job or a new place to eat. There is no need to go on and on and try to give her a bad name. She makes good food that people enjoy and she enjoys doing it.

Does the owner just keep the tips for herself or are they divided with all the employees.

Of course she keeps it!!! She has had a cocaine problem for years!!! Her and her father are both con-artists. Her father convinced his ex-wife too co-sign for the building beside it and then left her for another woman and divorced her!!! His ex-wife is one of the most kind, caring, and nicest people you will ever meet in your life.

You people are dumb as hell. I'm close to the owner. She splits all the tips at the end of the day and divides them! And as for a drug problem, you people have no idea what you're talking about! Nicole is an amazing lady, who treats her workers very well. And not to mention the food is amazing! Get a life. Let's see you try to open a non chain restaurant and keep it running for 10 years.

And as to the person who started this you might wanna pull that last black tooth and wipe the cocaine off your upper lip, with the 5 "Bux" a day you make on well fare.

Why are waitresses not paid a decent salary without tips? After all, the cooks play a role in the service and do not usually get tips. Tips have become expected and the customer feels obligated to give one even if service is poor.

I don't tip hardly anything if the waitress isn't doing there jobs. Now I don't blame them If its busy which is affecting it and they are trying. Now if they are spending more tine texting or chit chatting then I don't leave crap.
