Jay's Cafe & Trading Co



Provide friendly, responsive service to create an exceptional dining experience for all our guests. Each server's primary objective is to provide our guests a memorable experience that inspires them to return again and again.We are a fun, fast paced restaurant. We pride ourselves in providing an authentic Ocean City dining experience featuring sand and palm trees in our outdoor dining area and a cool and relaxed space indoors. The Taustin family has been operating businesses in Ocean City for over 70 years giving its customers and employees a family-oriented atmosphere.Due to the majority of Pier 23 being an outdoor venue, servers are expected to work in summer beach temperatures and are exposed to all the elements mother nature has to offer. You will be expected to navigate the stairs when completing tasks relevant to your position. There may be times that you will need to enter the kitchen which is fast paced, noisy, and hot at times.
