Bartender & Fine Dining

Bartender & Fine Dining

Are you passionate about hospitality and all things fine dining?

Stillpoint's charming Bartender and Fine Dining Server works closely with the general manager to oversee all front of house services including guest reception, luggage, concierge, gift shop, POS, and bar and dining room. He or she is a food and beverage professional who has amassed several years of experience as a fine dining server and bartender and who possesses exceptional customer service skills including a keen ability to multi-task and remember details such as client names, schedules, cabin assignments and food and drink preferences. Current TAP Alcohol Server and ServSafe food handler certificates are required in Alaska.

Lunch: Work closely with the kitchen staff to design and oversee the lunch buffet, serve, clean, help with dishes and reset dining room. Then attend to hospitality services all afternoon.

Happy Hour: Help set the tone for an uplifting evening. Light a fire, select a playlist, set up the bar and help prep the appetizers. This detail oriented individual and is a pro at mixing classic hot and cold beverages featuring top shelf spirits and serving award-winning wines and frosty Alaska micro brews.

He or she is ideally also a trained sommelier, or at minimum has a working knowledge of wine service and helps train other staff on our service standards. Along with the culinary team, they suggest pairings that will best complement the menu. This requires experience and knowledge with how food and wine, beer, spirits and other beverages work in harmony.

Dinner Service: After happy hour, transition to the dining room where we present a multi-course, prix fixe menu with wine pairings with open hand service. This includes an intimate knowledge of the menu and familiarity with local ingredients. For well-timed, choreographed food delivery, communication and cooperation with the chef and other servers is essential.

After Dinner: Continue bar beverage service after the meal as guests move outside to the bonfire or back to the lounge. Ensure the guests are attended to as you complete your sidework duties of busing, restocking and inventory, polishing flatware and glassware, assisting with dishwashing, and resetting the bar and dining room.

Although each staff member specializes in a specific job, you may be asked to assist with grounds keeping, landscaping, maintenance, portering, luggage, housekeeping, other kitchen duties and ongoing camp chores. This requires the ability to prioritize daily duties with flexibility and readiness to transition between jobs.

A working smartphone with cellular service is required.
