Even with the " it's always packed" comment doesn't mean your making money.
The National Restaurant Research shows that the average restaurant makes only 5 cents on the dollar in profit.
Tuff business, especially in a seasonal area.
This may be true, but I find it hard to believe when i go to a bar that is always packed, and I walke out with at least a $50 tab everytime that the owner is hurtin, espescially considering that there are hundreds of other people pullin $50 tabs all day long.
