Quit yer bitchin. If you don't like it, go get a real job. A good server still makes decent money even with the a-holes that don't tip.

Places like Shoneys should pay the servers $8 an hour without tips. Say if I go in to eat off the buffet, should I be obligated to leave a tip just because she led me to a table. These places should be closed down for making the public pay for the FOOD &PLUS FOR THEIR EMPLOYEES. DONT THINK SO..Not in my WORLD.

Restaurant work is some of the hardest work I've ever done. Anyone who says it isn't a "real job" is an idiot. I'm so thankful that I no longer have to waitress, and I always try to tip well. Those who don't are low class and clueless.
I agree

Restaurant work is very hard .If you get good service you need to leave a tip. I tip by the service i get. If the service wasn't good I still leave a tip but much smaller.

I'm curious. Just what is the proper protocol at a buffet? Usually after being seated, a server will get your drinks and refill them but basically I serve myself as far as food, silverware and napkins. I normally leave 15% as a tip but what is the proper percentage at a buffet? Any servers want to answer this?
hmmm

I think 15% is sufficient

I usually tip for the entire dining experience. If it takes a long time to get the food, or if the food is not good, or if the restaurant is dirty, all of that factors in. Maybe that is not fair to the server, but I don't have the option to not pay for the food. But why should I leave a large tip when the dining experience was not good?
seems legit

No.

INsure means to protect against financial liability. One insures one's house against theft or fire.

ENsure means to make sure or certain.

A good way to remember this is that the "i" in "insure" can remind you of "income."

Servers are paid $2.13 an hour and if they do not make at least the combined minimum wage of $7.25 (between their hourly rate and tips), then the employer is required by law to pay minimum wage. So every server should be making at least $7.25 an hour. If this isn't happening then see your manager or consult a labor attorney.
ummmmm

How can giving a good tip ensure good service, when the tip comes last?

What's wrong with giving good service to ensure a good tip?

I always try to tip well, usually more than the server deserves in some cases, because I know its a tough job. But I suspect the ones complaining about tips are the half-assed ones who disappear and leave you with an empty glass until you have to get up and go looking for water yourself.
I suspect the good, experienced servers don't bother whining on Topix because they know a certain percentage of people are deadbeats, and its just part of the gig.
I agree

If it is a buffet they still refill your drinks remove the dirty dishes and check to see if all is ok. I tip them Usually 3.00 if it is just 2 of us.That may not be enough so does anyone know what would be the right amount to tip if the service is good.

10% is minimal standard regardless of good/bad service
20% or more would be about right for good service. That comes to about $8 if you had two $20 meals ($40 ticket)
