According to the Waiter, 80 percent of customers are nice people just looking for something to eat. The remaining 20 percent, however, are socially maladjusted psychopaths. Waiter Rant offers the server’s unique point of view, replete with tales of customer stupidity, arrogant misbehavior, and unseen bits of human grace transpiring in the most unlikely places. Through outrageous stories, the Waiter reveals the secrets to getting good service, proper tipping etiquette, and how to keep him from spitting in your food. The Waiter also shares his ongoing struggle, at age thirty-eight, to figure out if he can finally leave the first job at which he’s really thrived.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The other shoe finally drops. The front-of-the-house version of Kitchen Confidential; a painfully funny, excruciatingly true-life account of the waiter’s life. As useful as it is entertaining. You will never look at your waiter the same way again—and will never tip less than 20 percent.”

    Anthony Bourdain

  • “Dan John Miller is pitch perfect…Miller’s vocal interpretation dovetails seamlessly with the material. He shines when the Waiter is dishing it out, but even more so when he’s taking it. Miller’s performance is enthralling during passages in which he reveals his crippling self-doubt, overwhelming sense of underachievement, and acknowledgment that he’s become somewhat of a jerk.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred audio review)

  • “Readable, fun, and, for those unfamiliar with the sphere of personal service, highly instructive…This tell-all is likely to spawn notoriety for the people who run the front of the house just as Anthony Bourdain’s journals did for kitchen staff.”


  • “I really enjoyed Waiter Rant. The book is engaging and funny, a story told from my polar opposite perspective. I will now do my best to act better as a chef—and I dare say, I’ll never be rude to a waiter again, as long as I live.”

    John DeLucie, chef of the Waverly Inn

  • A New York Times Bestseller
