Hi Friends! This short but sweet blog post is brought to you with your complete satisfaction in mind. Today we are discussing the importance of reservations. As many of you know, this time of year in our northern paradise is marked by ebbs and flows in the number of people in the area. By and large, most of the tourists who visit our area for the swimming, boating and beaches have long since bid us adieu, returning to their school and work routines, but we do still have an active number of individuals with second homes in the area who, like many of us, relish the beauty and relaxation that comes with fall in our region. Leelanau county is also popular stop on the color tour loop and we find ourselves enjoying the company of folks who have made the trek for a day or two to take in the autumnal beauty and enjoy a nice meal the process.
The variation in traffic creates inconsistency in our busyness, and we find reservations to be more important than ever. Much like the tourist population, our staffing numbers experience a dip as many employees return to school or transition into post college employment in their field of study. Our main focus at the Riverside Inn is to provide excellent food, friendly and outstanding service and an overall dining experience that stays with you long after you depart. In order to guarantee we do, we rely heavily on our reservations to schedule our staff accordingly. With such a small crew, we do our best to ensure that each employee is scheduled in such a way that he or she is not overworked or under utilized while they are here. Reservations help us to predict and plan for their time. When we have an influx of diners without reservations, we can occasionally find ourselves in a frenzy to meet the needs of each and every one of our diners with the attention to detail that is our standard at the Inn. We are factitiously focused on your enjoyment and satisfaction while you are with us. If you give us a call in advance to let us know you're heading our way, we're confident you will. Thanks in advance, and happy fall!
