Square for Restaurants

The POS system that runs at full speed.

Square for Restaurants

Run your restaurant how you’ve always wanted. (Faster.)

It’s here: our built-from-scratch restaurant point-of-sale platform with software, hardware, and payments that streamlines your whole restaurant operation. It’s built for front of house and back of house. And it’s built for speed.

Now with online order integrations.

Access the largest network of online delivery services and diners in all 50 states, and see all your orders directly in your POS.

Stay on top of your tables.

Customize your floor plan with all the sections you need, then use it to track crucial information like covers, when a table is about to turn, or how revenue centers are performing.

Coursing that keeps chefs and servers in sync.

Tap and drag items between courses as often as guests change their minds. And with one-tap firing, holding, and preset straight-firing, your kitchen is always in sync.

Make multiple menus. Manage them all on the fly.

From breakfast to lunch and seasonal specials, create all the menus you need and swap them out in a tap. Need to make changes? Be our guest—customize menus anytime, from anywhere.

Easy and expedited reports for every little thing.

Track sales, covers, and customers

Run reports for sales, comps and voids, covers, revenue centers, and more so you can turn customers into regulars while reducing costs.

Get data out of every dish

See data on individual server sales to find out who’s performing and who needs more training—all with your restaurant POS software.

Multiple restaurants, one account.

Whether you run one or many restaurants, manage them all from the same account. Access and update all your menus, employees, and reports—plus make bulk changes that apply to multiple locations.

Hardware that’s nothing like your old P.O.S. Now serving tableside payments.

Square has all the hardware you need, with stands, cash drawers, receipt printers, and top-of-the-line accessories designed just for your restaurant type. Plus, accept payments at the table with the all-new Square Terminal.

Accept all the latest, fastest, and most secure ways to pay.
