Bar manager Amber makes powerful drinks that aren’t drinkable.
Jon thinks that Scott lost his purpose when Stacey left and that the purpose still hasn’t come back after she returned. Jon brings in his experts, experts bartender Gerry Graham and expert chef Michael Psilakis. They start by going in to inspect the kitchen. Gallopin’ Goose makes a ratio of 60% beverage and 40% food sales. The computer’s keyboard is covered in dirt. The liquor bottles have dead bugs inside of them.
Amber’s attitude is starting to get very bad, and Jon tells her that she has to do better. Michael suggests that they serve breakfast all day long since it is bringing in a lot of business. Chef Michael says that the kitchen did well, and the food looked delicious. Jon surprises Scott and Stacey with a trip to Kentucky so they can learn more about Bulleit bourbon.
On relaunch night, the bar opens to a line of excited patrons. Amber’s attitude has improved, and it is almost as if she’s been reinvented. The customers love the live music and seem to be enjoying themselves. The bar is a success, and Scott thinks the future of the bar looks great. Jon says that this wasn’t just a broken bar, but a broken family too.

- “Fast service very clean bathrooms the food was served perfect an the staff ie waitresses were very friendly would highly recommend to my friends.”
- “Fun experience. Burgers were good. Drinks were perfect and they had a live band. 1st time here and hopefully we go back. We were just passing thru.”
- “Was excited it opened up again all waitresses were standing at the bar talking. It took over an hour to even get a beer. They were very limited in beer especially on tap. Kitchen was closed so we didn’t get to eat. Since the staff were too busy talking to each other at the bar people actually left without paying because they waited for a check and never got one. When asked why no one was checking on their tables we were told we should.have walked up to the bar and ordered. I hate to be this way but will most likely not return.”
