IT'S not the cheese toast that makes Sizzler restaurant in Ipswich special.

It's the restaurant's general manager, Linda Bulow.

The 51-year-old was recently awarded the national Sizzler Restaurant General Manager of the Year Award for 2014.

The Churchill resident has been working at the venue since it first opened in 1987.

She said winning the award was a goal she had been aiming to achieve for years.

The accolade recognises management skills, restaurant operating standards, customer satisfaction, care for staff and love of job.

"It feels very rewarding to win," Ms Bulow said. "In Sizzler terms, it is the pinnacle, but I haven't won it alone.

"Without my committed and supportive management team and our 75 fantastic staff members we would not have achieved what we have."

Sizzler director of Operations and HR, Brian Finch praised the restaurant's outstanding customer service and operating standards.

"Linda takes a great interest in her staff and her customers," he said.

"Her dedication and leadership skills have built a positive culture that staff and customers feel every time they go into the restaurant."

Ms Bulow will attend an award presentation to be held in the Gold Coast on Monday.

"It's my chance to show off Ipswich and the restaurant," she said.
