A Work in Progress
though our menu, equipment, furnishings and key staff remained the same after the move, we
quickly discovered that Jamin House Café was a completely new restaurant. We increased
our seating from 180 to over 300; increased our staff from 22 to 55; created a whole new
seating arrangement and waiting capacity and we experienced an influx of customers which
we had not imagined. After four and a half months we are still working on:
"putka" ceiling fans to work.
fountain, pond and eventual waterfall below the deck.
decoration and improvements on the deck.
problem of our neon sign on the side of the building which causes a buzzing in the sound
Fixing our roof
which still leaks.
fencing around our dumpster
Going to a 7 day
a week operation
Most of the above
relates to the extreme labor shortage in the Hill Country both in the service and
construction industries. This was exacerbated by our opening in the busiest time of the
year. We hope to have everything in place by the Christmas season. Soon come.
What Happened Mon?
... Opened for a week but our new chef
didnt understand that customers needed to be served. Hes history.
7 days a week
... We need trained staff and it takes
time. Were ready now. We will be open 7 days a week starting September,
Brunch ... It was too successful. We werent able to
continue with the quality of the buffet. We will be building a special "Omelet Shack
where, once again, you may get your eggs to order "Your Way"!
Despite the publicity, the boat races every
year have not been one of our favorite events. The past few years it has been the slowest
weekend of the summer, since most of our customers who are local residents, stay clear of
Marble Falls and the attendant mayhem. Being on the lake for the first time, we
didnt know what to expect but we had a special for the day whereby you could have a
seat on the deck for the day with parking along with access to the "Jamin Too! room
and a buffet of salmon, roast beef, jerk pork, salad, rice & beans , mashed potatoes,
roasted potatoes and carrot cake, all for $50.
Enjoying the races with radio commentary.
A birds eye view
had representaives in the bar both days handing out souvenirs and T-shirts and we were
visited by the Miller girls on Sunday who did the same while entertaining the guys.
We shared security of the
parking lot with the Hampton Inn and Chilis and had attendant parking for our lot.
Despite the rumors, we did not charge for parking unless you didnt eat at Jamin
House. During the whole weekend we had no cars towed nor were there any parking charges.
It went quite well.
