Restaurant greeter and server stations all have some of the same basic items like silverware, crayons and menus. Instead of having keeping a large, disorganized stack of menus under the counter, many restaurants opt for a menu holder. Menu holders can be either wall mounted or set on a countertop. For those that are wall mounted, put them in a place that keeps them easily accessible for the server but does not make it an eyesore. The most common placement is on the side of a greeter’s stand or on a half wall in the server station. Countertop mounted holders are mostly seen in diners or restaurants where guests seat themselves. The holder either attaches to the table corner or edge of the counter (for diners with counter seating). Be sure that the holder always has enough menus to accommodate the number of customers in the seat.
