There are two types of loitering. Tidbits to your diners, from the people who are here to serve you. Do neither as it will upset your wait staff. One is the type, full well not knowing that servers make their money turning tables. If their is a wait at a restaurant, eat then leave so that other people can sit down and dine and have a chance at their own meal. We always say behind your backs, take it elsewhere. If you sit, hopefully enjoyed your meal and then pay but refuse to vacate we as servers take issue. This is why we stop acknowledging you. We stop filling up your waters, we stop checking on you, we pick up up the bill after you have paid in hopes you just leave. Secondly, do not ever be those diners that come in five minutes to close. We despise you. Yes we are here to "serve you" at anytime. But in this industry we like to close on time. No chef, server, or server assistant wants to help you at five minutes to close. We have done our side work, want to get home to our lives, and Fridays is around some corner in this city. Especially if you chose to come in at five minutes to close then choose to stay for two hours, hint to you if music is turned off and lights are all on... Leave.
