Favorite Restaurant Food Servers In The Atlantic City Area
Over the past month, we have chronicled the best restaurants, bars, taverns, bartenders in the Greater Atlantic City area.
Today, we have complied a list of the favorite restaurant food servers in the Atlantic City area.
Yesterday, Friday, June 9, 2023, our on-air listeners called-in and shared their “nominations” of their favorite restaurant food servers.
Just like with their favorite bartenders … the passion exhibited during their on-air phone calls was beautiful.
CAPRICCIO ITALIAN RESTAURANT- RESORTS CASINO HOTEL, ATLANTIC CITY

Their customer service approach is team oriented in nature. So, we will share multiple food servers who shine on a daily Gary’s as follows:
Robert, Carmen, Steve and Jamie.
TONY’S BALTIMORE GRILL, ATLANTIC CITY - FOOD SERVER, KAREN
Margie and I have nominated Karen for this list of great restaurant food servers.
When my wife Margie and I started dating 43 years ago, Tony's Baltimore Grill in Atlantic City, New Jersey was our favorite dining spot.
We went there often and many times our food server was Karen.
Incredibly, Karen still works at Tony's 43 years later ... whereby she has the most seniority at Tony's Baltimore Grill.
We were with Karen two weeks ago. She is still fabulous.

GIRASOLE RESTAURANT, ATLANTIC CITY
It’s a shame that we don’t have the actual name of the food server, but, it is a great story. Al (Listener) called in and said that they were dining at Girasole restaurant in Atlantic City and they ordered the steak and potatoes on the side.
The patron wanted ketchup, and the food server told him that he would be right back. For some reason, they did not have any catch-up. The food server left the restaurant and purchased a bottle of ketchup at a nearby store and brought it back for the customer.
this act took place about seven or eight years ago. Now, that’s customer service.
