The adventure begins. Hiring tomorrow for line cooks, dishwashers, wait staff, bartenders, etc. Walk in interviews at 1602 Mount Major Highway (Rte 11) Alton, NH. Look for the sign and only enter in the southeast drive. Wanna play???

I just don’t see how all of these positions will be filled especially in season. There was a shortage of labor last year with restaurants not using their full capacity because they didn’t have the staff to handle the tables. Now we have a few new restaurants opening such as this one and Faro Express just to name a couple.

I can only assume since they have a William Tell themed logo it will be a similar menu. But you know what happens when you assume. [emoji33][emoji23]

I completely disagree. Your comparing home improvement and retail stores to the restaurant industry.

it’s not an excuse. It’s a fact. Canoe, Sandy Point, Shibley all had this issue that I personally experienced while going to these establishments this past season.

Pick and choose all you want. All of these businesses need extra help for the busy summer season.

If this specific industry is unable to hire staff for their busy season (the very season that has an influx of students that are also on vacation from school)....

Again we will have to agree to disagree. Walmart and Lowe’s do not see a huge uptick in season no where near what restaurants experience. These students that you speak of are not enough of a workforce influx to satisfy the restaurants demand.

Pay?
 
Perhaps employers will raise wages to attract employees? It's happening elsewhere. And bring new people into the workforce. It does seem to me that we are training people in the hospitality industry to be managers and chefs, not servers. I agree that business owners can no longer rely on "kids on vacation" to fill in all the jobs. They need to reach out and find new staff in places they didn't look before.

TiltonBB 12-18-2018 08:35 PM

One of the problems with using students to fill summer positions is that many go back to school before the summer is over and leave employers very short on help. It seems the schools start a lot earlier than they did years ago.

I do know that many local restaurants had one of their worst seasons filling positions during the summer of 2018. Also, even when you find a willing warm body a lot of potential employees can't pass a pre-employment drug test.

All Hail Relentless Restaurant Group
 
I've been interested in the "William Tell" for 30 years. My wife's family has had camps on Smith Point for over 100 years and when giving directions, they always start with "do you know where the William Tell is? Go there and turn right." When I first joined them, everyone talked about the Tell, but strangely, no one ever went there to eat. Finally, I walked up (ok, I drove; the hill's pretty steep) and had dinner by myself. Wow. I convinced the others a few at a time and everyone thought it was great. Once we bought our own place on the point, the wife and I became regulars, although we had to alternate between dinners and deserts. It was all very, very good and the people running it and working there were top-notch.

Sadly, like all restaurants that I really enjoy, they closed.

The Woodlands Tavern folks put some money into the facility and made a good effort, but it was not enough and they didn't make it.

Now, an "unknown" group of people are about to re-open the restaurant and from what little I have been able to glean about them, it looks like it will be a success.

It seems (and this is somewhat based on rumors and "informed sources") that the new people already own and operate successful restaurants elsewhere so they have experience. Their willingness to delay their opening until everything is "right" shows a commitment to quality and the deep pockets needed to start a new restaurant. They obviously do not intend to be a summers-only operation, which will reduce their need for seasonal employees. Since this problem exists everywhere to some extent, they probably already have some experience in dealing with it.

They have indicated that they will be bringing back some of the old William Tell menu items (wiener schnitzel? tobler chocolate? raspberry creme puffs?) and I am cautiously optimistic that they will still be in business when I next have a chance to eat there.

It’s like they are all there working gangbusters and then poof, nothing for weeks.

Must be costing a fortune for that place to sit idle.

"Soon" is such a relative term. From their occasional Facebook posts, they appear to have encountered difficulty in obtaining contractors. Just why is anyone's guess, but I imagine that they are being pretty picky about workmanship. They may also have experienced delays in obtaining custom equipment, getting inspections (don't get me started), or dealing with the unforeseen conditions that are an unavoidable part of old buildings.

Restaurants that rush to meet an opening deadline are a regular topic on this forum and few folk want to cut them any slack as they try to operate a not-yet-ready enterprise.

As I recall, the building was not that expensive. Of course, while it sits idle, they are paying for heat and taxes. Without a staff, however, it isn't "costing a fortune". That will come shortly, as staff training begins.

My prediction, based on nothing but speculation, is for a February opening. Their "concept", still under wraps, will be something that will be geared to serve both summer tourists and winter locals. Food quality and service will be excellent from the start. They will advertise a lot.

Mr. V 12-22-2018 04:47 PM

While I doubt they'll serve haute cuisine , I suspect the quality of the product and level of service will be better than average, as it was with the Tell.

At least I hope so.

Whatever the theme, let's hope they nail it and hit it out of the park.

I think of all the posts about this subject, your last two sentences are the most cogent.

What's included? Many years ago, i.e. when a dollar was worth a lot more, a
place near us had a PB&J on the menu for $35. It included a smorgasbord of side dishes, shrimp, salad, etc. The Dive menu lists a burger at $14, possibly more by next summer. Is that a 4 oz, 6 or 8 oz? Prime Angus, or some other cut?
More info, please.

With all due respect, and with all the humility I can find within my aging personality, there is NO "hamburger" worth $16.00. If a restaurant wants to sell a rounded, flattened, collection of ground beef for $16.00, then I humbly suggest they change its name to something other than 'hamburger'.

Age old argument yet again. Why would you change it - it is in fact a burger.

So here is a short list of nearby places you wont frequent either as they have burgers in the $14-16-ish price point :

Ellacoya
Cactus Jacks / T-Bones
Fratellos
405 Pub

What you are saying is a testament upon yourself - you cannot realize that there can be a $16 burger that's worth money spent. Truffle fries or not and cuts of beef are ignored. You just want to say that there is no way this is worthwhile? Ok, understood.

So make a new post for that and leave it out of a new restaurant thread regarding a place that has been over a year in opening, and that some of us want to thrive? Because what you are saying has zero relevance here, unless you care to comment on their burger? Oh, apologies, you won't ever have it.

If only reviews could be limited to those that have something to truly review?

TiltonBB 01-02-2019 08:01 AM

Not to hijack this thread (and I also hope the restaurant does well) we all have a choice where to shop and dine. It also comes down to the short season and the amount that a business needs to charge to remain viable. With Gunstock located nearby maybe that additional traffic will help them to grow and prosper.

As we get older (and I think that happens to everyone) :) we have to adjust our thinking to new technology and new prices. For some people that seems harder than it does for others. Most prices seem to increase every year (except televisions). That is one item that the longer you wait the better it gets, as the price gets lower.

When I was in high school I worked for two summers at a Dairy Queen. The first year the cones were 15 cents, 20 cents, and 25 cents for a large cone. At the start of the second year the owner told me he was going to charge 30 cents for the large cone. I told him that no one would pay 30 cents for an ice cream cone. How wrong I was! Many years later I am still adjusting my thinking!

Absolutely agree. You will be hard pressed to find a good “restaurant quality burger, not fast food” for under 12.00. Remember you are being served in a restaurant not going through a drive thru. Overhead much higher.

The only real exception it when places like Ellacoya run their specials to draw people in.

Not so long ago, at the Wolfeboro Inn, we used to joke "Someday, there'll be $5 hamburgers".

jbolty 01-02-2019 09:51 AM

A normal burger from the deluxe menu at any fast food drive through is about $6 and gets tossed in a bag. $15 for a good burger served to you at a table with fries or salad is pretty standard these days.

But, that's for another thread.

codeman671 01-02-2019 10:01 AM

If you want a cheap burger go to 5 Guys (tasty by the way:D)...Judging by the pictures on their Facebook page they are not trying to cater to a $5.00 burger crowd.

Any place around the seacoast that isn't a drive-thru has at least $12 burgers. Average one at the 99 is $12.00, and I would hardly call that gourmet.

Karmagirl, how about some feedback on the actual restaurant? What did you have? Was it good?

SAMIAM 01-02-2019 11:18 AM

Many restaurants have to charge a little more because of overhead.
At the Village Kitchen we charge $6.75 for a 1/3 lb hamburger.
E.M. Heath grinds it fresh for us every day...USDA choice ground chuck 80/20 mix.
We're not fancy and have beer and wine only,not a full bar so we can afford to sell a little cheaper

That sounds like a great approach to a burger SamIAM. I love the fact you use a local market. I think using a prime for a burger is overkill. Kind of like making a mixed drink with 30-year-old Scotch.

There are some words that Echo in the back of my mind from my days in culinary school. They taught us that some people would believe that a $16 steak would taste better than an $8 steak.

My only complaint about Heaths is that you can't get 73/27 any longer.

While I have eaten, and will again eat a $16 burger, The VK makes a very good burger!

JADAQ 01-02-2019 01:25 PM

I can tell you right now at $16 for a burger I’m sure most of their clientele won’t be locals. It’s going to be a tough go in the off seasons when you’re relying on tourists and such to support a business. Dear lord, if a burger is $16 I’d hate to see the rest of the menu!

I'm certainly no restaurateur, but when you purchase a burger at a restaurant the cost goes far beyond hamburger meat. You're paying for the bun, ground beef, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, condiments, fries, side pickle, the host/hostess who sat you, the waiter/waitress who brought it to you, the cook who prepared it, the bus boy who took it away, and the dishwasher who cleaned it up. Businesses also have to keep the lights on, pay workers comp, pay insurance, pay taxes, heat the building, maintain their equipment, along with numerous other expenses, plus have to make a profit to make it all worth while. To say that a restaurant shouldn't charge $16 for a burger because hamburger meat isn't that expensive is oversimplifying the issue to the highest degree.

The Village Kitchen must have all those requirements to run their restaurant and they only charge $6.75 for a delicious burger.
I guess most people who go to these high priced restaurants don't look at the cost anyway.

I have a hard time justifying the use of either of those in a burger other than when salvaging the leftovers from dressing a loin. KOBE is sought after because it's extremely tender as a steak. Hamburger can be delicious and tender when tougher meat is ground up and mixed with the right amount of fat.

Jeez, if everyone started a new thread about the same subject because they didn't like the way it was going there would be double the amount of threads in this forum. Most thread subjects go off on a tangent, it just seems to go that way.

It comes out with a hot flaky crust, just like what Marie Callender used to bake, back in 1959, in between her hula - hoop'n.

I do believe I'm fall'n in love with that Marie Callender 2-dollar microwave 5" pot pie with the flaky crust. So good, is almost like that yummy rich restaurant food. ..... :love: ..... do believe I'll have one for breakfast!

Just an FYI, but only the Web-Master can confirm, about its disappearing.

Just about the same message was posted last Sunday? morning I believe. In this brand new thread (Last Sunday morning) started by FLL with one reply. The jest of the thread was about the cost of these pies at Walmart. The single reply by someone else was one word "Salt"

In just a few hours it was gone including the reply.

While its certainly not my forum / website ............ I wish this crap could be stopped.

I really enjoy all the other opinions here and like to read about whats going on up the lake when I can't be here. I really admire a lot of the folks opinions here, even the ones I disagree with.

Somehow, Someway, please make this stop. If FLL wants to make an ass of himself in one of his own threads ,,,,,,,, please let him do it. Those are easy to avoid, but when he jumps in for his own self gratification with off topic gibberish, please consider deleting, it's not fair to everyone else.

I don't like to microwave something like a pot pie because it makes it soggy and also it doesn't get hot evenly. Maybe I'll try one of her pies but will bake it. Thanks for telling us about the pie. :cheers:

Indeed he should, but hopefully in his own thread he started without derailing someone else's thread. :cheers:

I’m with you pondguy. 95% of is posts are purposely designed to derail threads and stir the pot. It is getting extremely annoying. Why the heck are we talking about frozen pot pies in a restaurant thread? [emoji35]

Yes especially because he will be the only one reading his rants and nonsense and he can continue to rack up his posting total.

Hey, does anyone know how much this new place charges for pot pies? I found a great deal on the web and just need to know if I should give this place a shot or order a dozen online.

I would much rather read those "rants and nonsense" than read the NIMBY bull**** for those "entitled" **** at a certain Laconia location.

Alrighty then.... to each his own. That’s why they make vanilla and chocolate. I prefer not to listen to his nonsense.

We need to get back to the thread subject. He accomplished his mission

I wouldn't be so sure that everyone would "ignore" him. When he was absent for a month last year because of a password problem I got constant comments and questions about it. Apparently a lot of people missed his posts.

My comment was directed at only 2 forum members who constantly criticize FLL about his postings.
Most of us get a kick out of his commenting style and know when to take him serious of just ignore some of them.
You are right that when he was not posting for a while some members were concerned about it and the forum got a little dull at times.

Variety is the Spice of Life
 
I enjoy FLL’s posts. He is a long time forum member and a thoughtful man. He helped me out of a Snake Eyes bind in the dead of January traveling by boat from Meredith to Alton and back.

I don’t always like some posts from some people. After many years on this forum that would be expected. People have come and gone and some favorites have passed away.

I cherish each of you for bringing variety to the forum, helping when needed, offering new ideas and just chatting in general about our favorite place.

If FLL wants to stir the pot a bit, that is fine with me. Lighten up folks.

Now... will someone please post the menu for the Lodge at Smith Point?

Truth
 
I really like it when the the title tells me what the topic is. When it gets hijacked, I get less interested in the whole forum. If FLL wants to change the topic, he should start a new thread. Of course, we are (almost) all guilty of straying once in a while. Wouldn't it be great if the software allowed a flag for "off topic"? That would require some sort of censor. We're not ready for that.

TiltonBB 01-07-2019 07:03 AM

I read the Forum daily and I have learned a lot about the lake from others who experience things that I am not familiar with. I am happy to learn more about a place that has given me over 50 years of enjoyment. It is my feeling that the more you know about the area the more you can appreciate it.

I am not at all concerned when a thread wanders from its original subject and covers something else. The thoughts and opinions of others can be interesting and offer a different perspective than one that I have.

On the rare occasion that a post is not interesting and enjoyable to read I find it very easy to skip to the next post. Pretty simple and no negativity!:)
