Our Core Values
Heartfelt hospitality paired with attentive service
Going out of our way to make our guests feel good is as important to us as serving excellent food. Dining at our restaurant should evoke the excitement of going out, combined with the comfort of coming home. Our dedication to hospitality will create loyal and vocal fans. Our service will ensure our guests want for nothing. Our staff will use a little quick thinking, a little humor, and a lot of heart to make our guests’ experiences unforgettable.
Consistently delivering quality at a value
We will consistently offer the highest levels of quality at a great value. A concerted effort to provide the highest quality experience at the best possible prices will create loyalty and ensure longevity. Our menus, both food and beverage, will be thoughtfully prepared using the best possible products. Every time we serve an item to our guest we want that item to make a lasting, positive impression. Everything is intentional. No aspect of the experience is an afterthought.
Creating a place where people want to work
We all spend a lot of time at work. Our jobs, in many cases, are part of our identity. We believe in creating a culture where people can take pride in what they do and where they work. We will treat people fairly and with respect and we expect the same in return. As with creating a culture of hospitality towards our guests, it takes all of us to create a culture of hospitality towards one another.
Contributing to our community through philanthropy
We believe that by extending our hospitality to our community, we will make our own business stronger. We encourage our employees to become involved in their communities and we support their charitable causes. In addition to the individual efforts by our staff, The Clover & the Bee has dedicated time and resources to supporting charities related to congenital heart disease. Our goal is to help leave the world a better place, and when we work to create positive change in our communities, we take a tiny step closer to achieving that goal. We are proud to partner with the Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation, the Ollie Hinkle Heart Foundation, the Children's Heart Foundation, and Webster Groves schools and educational programs.
