Square for Restaurants
The fast and simple table management system
Make it easy to stay on top of everything to do with your tables. From taking bookings to managing turnarounds to organising service, you can do it all easily with Square’s table management system.
Build your restaurant floor plan with intuitive click-and-drag layouts.
With Square’s table management system it’s easy to create a floor plan. Just select each part of your restaurant (e.g. bar, kitchen tables etc), click on it, drag it into place and release the mouse. Once the items are on the grid, you can move them around in the same way. If you need to rearrange your tables, you can easily update your floor plan accordingly.
Keep tables turning by monitoring their real-time status.
Ensure no table gets forgotten by monitoring its status in real-time. Take steps to encourage slow diners to speed up or move in quickly when people finish earlier than you’d expected. Either way, be ready to move straight in on turnaround as soon as the tables are free.
Instantly send orders from the kitchen and let them know when to hold or start firing dishes.
Keep on top of your food prep to keep tables moving. For absolute maximum efficiency, use Square for Restaurants in tandem with Square Kitchen Display System to keep view of all tasks and their priority.
Manage the speed of service by holding some courses back from the kitchen while that table orders another round of drinks and then fire the courses when they are ready
Book more business with a restaurant reservation system.
Manage table reservations with minimal effort with Square and integrate with OpenTable.
Easily access and view your floor plan, table and coursing information from within your Square account and customer booking data from OpenTable at the same time.

Find out why Australian restaurants choose Square
‘It goes without saying how beautiful Square hardware looks on the counter. It helps when the equipment we use looks just as stunning as the restaurant, right? Not only is it good-looking on the outside, but it’s also functional on the inside.’
Co-owner, No Bones, Byron Bay, NSW
‘We’re a fast-paced QSR model, so we want to be efficient wherever we can. Square has streamlined the way customers order, from pick up, to the kitchen operations - it flows really well.’

Co-owners, Bao Brothers, NSW
‘We can simply open the Square app on our phones and assess the performance across thirty locations. We know which products are working and not working in real-time. This enables us to scale while maintaining the same level of attention to detail we had when we operated just one store.’
Co-owner, Fishbowl, NSW, VIC and QLD
‘It came down to cost for us. Once you’re paying for your fees subscriptions and devices, our old systems were more expensive. We did a bit of research, Square was simple and offered custom rates so it made sense and was more cost efficient to switch.’
Co-owner, T-Bone Brewing Co, TAS
‘The user interface makes it so simple for us and our customers. Prior to Square, we used one of those bank EFTPOS machines with handwritten dockets. Now, we can check our stats at the end of the night just on our handheld device.’
