Easy to Use Online Waitlist Keeps You Organized & Efficient

Hunting down waiting guests by physically dialing them is time consuming, and walking around screaming out names is just plain annoying (and means your hosts aren't greeting guests). Our restaurant waitlist app and estimated wait time feature improves the guest experience and prevents crowded waiting areas.

Enter the same information into TablesReady and click to notify your guests when their table is ready in seconds. Save even more time when guests text back to confirm or cancel.

Grow Your Business With Happier, Engaged Guests

Keep your notifications short & sweet, or use up to 320 characters to keep your guests informed. Speed up the ordering process and decrease turnover time by sharing your menu and specials, or build your brand by promoting events and linking to your social media pages.

Ditch the Dirty, Expensive Pagers for Good

No more big upfront investments in hardware or replacing pagers that break or "walk off" every few weeks. And the best part? Your guests can easily cancel or reschedule their reservations from their own cellphones, all in real time. Let's see your old pagers do that.

TablesReady is the simplest waitlist app that makes life easier for your waiting guests and your host stand.
