At the annual Original Oyster House Christmas parties celebrated in December, the Gulf Shores and Mobile Causeway restaurants recognized their valued employees and awarded the top two staff members from each restaurant’s employee-of-the-month pool. Eliza McGaster, preparation cook from the Gulf Shores’ location and Seth Cazalas, busser from the Mobile Causeway location were awarded the 2014 Employee of the Year honor.

“Eliza is such a team player who seems to always put others before herself. Her great positive attitude is contagious in our kitchen. Eliza has been a true blessing to us. She has an incredible work ethic and excellent character. She aligns with our core values and role models our mission, to exceed customer’s expectations,” stated Allen Hastings, general manager of Original Oyster House in Gulf Shores.

“Seth is outstanding in everything he does. Always ready to jump in and help, Seth exudes leadership, goes the extra mile to make sure the customers are happy and all the servers love him. He honestly is the type of guy you would want your daughter to marry because of his integrity and impeccable character,” explained Jim Harrison, general manager of the Original Oyster House on the Mobile Causeway.
