DUNWOODY, Ga. - A restaurant in Dunwoody has a new team member tasked with keeping diners safe and satisfied.
Tastee Spoon is using a robotic server, Irie Milly, to deliver orders to dine-in patrons and keep them six feet apart.
Owner Raymone Williams explains the name is inspired by a Caribbean term that means "calm" or "cool." Milly is Williams' mother's name.
The robot is programmed to move around the restaurant by using the ceiling as a "map."

The robot server stays charged for 14 hours.
Williams said the robot hasn't replaced jobs at the restaurant, just "enhanced" the job of service staff.
"It's a great addition to our environment here," Williams said in a December Facebook video.
