Would you recommend it for a recent high school grad?I've done fast food, and retail before. I'm not too crazy about going back to those environments.

What's your goal in life? You can make good money in the FOH of fine dining restaurants.
In the right environment, it's a damn good job for someone in college or about to be. Get to know some people who work at a prospective place and find out how the money is - I would never have worked at a El Chico's or Chili's/Friday's, but I had no interest in fine-dining either. Wound up doing time at a steak place, a restaurant on a local lake and a cajun seafood joint. Generally 'upscale casual' places - $25-30 per-person per-meal averages.
The bulk of my budding career as an entertainer is in restaurants and bars (mostly the aformentioned upscale-casual places). Obviously my perspective is a little different then the waitstaff's, but I highly, highly recommend it.
Did you do magic in the restaurants?
