Amanda visits restaurants, on a local and national basis, detailing her experiences and offering unbiased reviews. She pays for her own meals and does not disclose her status as "The Ghost Guest℠". Each meal is given an overall ghost rating, with 5 ghosts being exceptional and 1 ghost being very poor.
Amanda is sometimes invited to review restaurants, events, or products, in which case, she reports solely on the experience or product and does not offer an overall ghost rating. She is also a food and drink writer for various publications including Thrillist, and InsideHook.
