I heard that Barkers Restaurant is closed. Is there any truth to this and why. I'm not surprised because the food wasn't that great.

Well when you treat your employees as bad as they did KARMA has a way of biting you back!

The town simply did not renew the management contract of the person Tammy worked for and decided to hire her directly. The town simply cut out the middleman.

I hope Tammy has changed now that she's not under the command of the other two. I hope shes more compassionate and understanding to the plight of her workers, who are the bread and butter of any restaurant, and has gained the ability to handle certain situations differently. The other two had no idea what they were doing. They treated their employees horribly. Tammy engaged in the same thing, but I think it was because she was under their spell. No more "he said she said". If you don't have facts and proof you simply cannot terminate people for nothing. I hope she reads this! I worked there. They treated me worse than at any server job I've ever had, and I have had plenty, so I speak from experience. I have never had the first problem at my other server positions. That looks really bad on Barkers and speaks volumes. Hope things change. We'll soon see!!!

* Not being nit-picky, but it's restaurant, not resturant.

Can't believe that the "other two" were only able to hold on to a restaurant for a year... wait a minute, yes i can!!!

When your restaurant goes to your head, your restaurant goes out the door!
