What Makes a Great Bartender


What Makes a Great Bartender

Any great Downtown Dallas restaurant has amazing bartenders to enhance your dining experience. At Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse, our bartenders know how to entertain with their skills and also make an amazing drink. This month, they’ve come up with a “Drink of the Month” to share with our guests. We’re calling it ‘Grandma’s Shotgun’ and you’re going to love it! Our bartenders are one of our biggest assets in this business. Here are a few things to know about being a great bartender.

Drink and Menu KnowledgeGrandma's Shotgun

Bartenders should know the drink menu and the dinner menu. At our Dallas steakhouse, we have one of the most extensive wine lists in the area. Our bartenders know that certain wines pair well with certain entrees. For example, various kinds of Pinot Noir pair nicely with our Venison Roll-Ups or our Wild Game Platter. Our drink of the month features Absolut Mandarin and Absolut Citron, Grand Marnier, and agave nectar garnished with fresh lime and orange juice. This fresh, citrus drink is a great addition to any of our delicious desserts like our Chocolate Torte or Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake.

Ability to Engage Guests

Bartending is just about making a great drink, it’s about reading your guests and understanding their needs and type of service they require. Some people like to engage more with our staff than others. When our bartenders begin serving someone, their goal is to get a grasp of who the person is and what service style will best suit their needs. We want our guests to feel welcome and catered to while they’re with us. A great bartender will be able to engage those he or she is serving and keep their attention.

Enhance the Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse Experience

Our steakhouse has the reputation of being one of the best steakhouses in Dallas. We don’t just want our guests leaving the restaurant thinking that they had a great steak, but also knowing that they had a great experience with us. Our bartenders have the unique opportunity to enhance our guests experience while they dine and drink with us. From our warm and inviting western ranch theme to our delicious recipes handed down from generation to generation, the experience of dining at Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse is something we want our guests to remember. Our bartenders are key in making the experience memorable. A great drink and a good time is hard to forget.
