What Houzz contributors are saying:
What Is a server?Servers tend to be smaller, more formal, and lighter in scale than buffets. They may have drawers and an open bottom on taller legs, or they may have cabinets, similar to a buffet or sideboard. The term “server” comes from the fact that the people serving the food in a formal dining room or restaurant are called servers, and the server is a place where those serving the food can place the serving dishes.Practically speaking, shops and furniture makers tend to use the word “server” interchangeably with “buffet,” though servers are likely to be smaller.
