In the last 20+ that the restaurant has been under the current ownership, the average Tolly-Ho employee has worked here for three years. In the restaurant business, that’s an AMAZING statistic! That includes the many employees that have been with us over a decade, and the people that have worked for a month and left. That happens here like it does at any restaurant – people who think it would be fun before they realize that a job is a JOB. Working at Tolly-Ho is hard work. But it can also be fun and once you’ve proven you’ are sticking around, it’s more like being part of a family.

Are We Hiring?


We are now hiring counter service team members for Fall Semester 2015. Additionally, we are always accepting applications and looking for smart, hardworking people to add to our family. You can print a copy of our application below and leave it at the restaurant anytime. We do typically increase hiring during late summer to prepare for the influx of students to the area in the fall, so that’s a great time to apply. Call the restaurant at 859-253-2007 if you have any specific questions about the application process.


We request that all applications for employment are made in person at the restaurant. Business permitting, the manager might be available to speak with you and even interview you on the spot. The best times for interviews are before and after the lunch rush.

Please download and print the application and bring it into the restaurant.
