Our Team

The Winston’s team has a legacy of consistently caring for over 29 years, and is dedicated to ensuring quality dining experiences for all customers.

  • Scott Waters, Executive Chef

    Scott Waters

    Executive Chef

    Scott’s enthusiasm in the kitchen brought him to Winston’s in the early 2000’s, where he reinvented our menu; many items of which are still on our menu today. Scott’s passion shows in the quality of the food at Winston’s Grille and he thoroughly enjoys developing new features with his creative flair. Scott was once featured in the top 25 Chef’s of the Triangle Cookbook and he has won numerous awards such as Florida’s Chef Association Competition as well as a four time champion of the North Carolina chili cook off!

  • Roger Carter, Assistant General Manager

    Assistant General Manager

    Roger’s favorite part of working at the Grille is the ability to touch so many lives, staff and guests alike. He helps the staff strive for greatness, while coaching them to refine or develop life skills of organization and interpersonal communication. It is constant gratification for him to see personal and professional growth in his staff.

  • Gillian Lineman, Associate Manager

    Gillian Lineman

    Associate Manager

    Gillian’s favorite part of the job is that Winston’s is her home away from home; the staff and regulars are like an extended part of her family. Gillian grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina but she is a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan. When she isn’t working or chasing around four (soon to be five!) kids, she loves to curl up with a good book and a hot cup of coffee.

  • Jamar Bryson, Associate Manager

    Jamar Bryson

    Associate Manager

    Jamar’s favorite part of his job is molding young professionals by setting them up with the tools for success. When Jamar isn’t at work you can find him in his own kitchen whipping up a menu to die for or watching Carolina games with his wife Kelly and pug puppy Zoe. Pretty soon Jamar won’t be cooking or watching games, he will be chasing around his little boy!

  • Jacob Hathaway, Associate Manager

    Jacob Hathaway

    Associate Manager

    Jacob’s favorite part of working at Winston’s is being able to work with friends and catching up with all of our amazing regulars. Jacob’s favorite band is The Talking Heads and he is a serious crossword fanatic. When he isn’t working, he loves to cook and try new recipes. If you’re in the mood for something healthy, try Jacob’s favorite: The Sesame Tuna Salad.
