When the Garnish Tray is a Buffet

I'm sure if you work in a bar you've seen what I'm about to talk about. A guest sitting at the bar, who starts reaching in the garnish tray and eating the fruit as it was their main course of the day. I always think of the movie Pretty Woman when Kit is putting fruit from the garnish tray on a napkin and the bartender yells, "this ain't a buffet Kit!"

The truth of the matter is, it is pretty gross. I admit that sometimes when I've worked a twelve hour shift, I've been known to eat a piece of fruit to avoid passing out. But a rule of thumb from now on to those of you sitting at the bar....Don't eat out of the garnish tray! It's not a buffet!

Amen! to keeping ones grubby hands out of the garnish tray!!!!

It's rude, it's gross, and it pisses the bartender off. Or at least it pisses this bartender off.

Use a little common sense when out people - keep your hands off!

Maybe they could somehow place the tray out of the bar patron's reach?
