Whose Supposed To Do More Dishes, the Cook or Server?

Checkmark  Roughly equal.

What's most important after the rush.... clearing/resetting tables or doing dishes?

Checkmark  Table resets are the priority for servers. We have to get the place looking nice right away.

Checkmark  During that time, the cook should turn around and do dishes.

Checkmark  Then both can work on dishes after the tables are reset and move onto other things.
