Am I the only one that feels this way because I don't think I should have to give 20% on top of a $15 meal with lousy service. Sorry. I do my
Job. No one tips me. I think it's the employers responsibility Go on haters

Heck. I agree with you. Every where I've been lately I've got bad service, and the prices are outragous. Now if you get really good service I believe you should tip.

I guess you're right, $2.15 an hour is more then enough to have a temporary slave.....wtf is wrong with you people, your servers don't control how much your meal is and if I had to wait on people like you that thought that way, yea your service is going to be shitty. And if you are a regular nontipper, we will pass the word on.

I always leave a tip, but the amount is always different pending on my service, I can't believe people leave no tip at all. And if the amount of your meal is why you aren't tipping, go somewhere where there is self service (McDonalds, Burger King etc.) or if you really insist on being served how about choosing a meal option that is less

If you can't afford to tip then your cheap self can not afford to eat at that place . This must be a liberal thread based on the ignorance . You do not deserve to eat anywhere if you can't man up and tip . Go through the To Go register and serve yourself . ( by the way I TIP the Curb side to go person as well .)

Showing more ignorance . If you can't distinguish between the type of establishment you are in , you shouldn't be allowed to spend your money.
Why must you all continue to make all the stereotypes about us look legit ?

sometimes the prices if meals depends in who the cooks are and how well they can make food and the ingredients they use. They may have awesome food, but you aren't going to see the cook take your order and then bring you your food. Just remember, the price of your meal is based on those things. If I owned a business, I'm going to take the cost of that meal and make sure my cook gets paid and that he has what he needs to keep my business thriving and yea I will have servers, but they are going to get paid what the law requires, because if the customer wants to have them then they can help pay for them and if they don't, then they have no reason to complain. If you want better service, then you know what to do.
Whats the difference

So then why do we tip strippers? They get paid more then servers. I guess it's for the same reasons. To "get a little extra". You get more for tipping sometimes. You know, stuff that isn't added to your bill and you both benefit from it. ;)

I am sure your a typical Huntington area resident. Cheap skate. I bet you don't mind paying for your drugs, alcohol and cigarettes. Its not the wait staff's fault you only work one job or don't have the money to eat out properly.

I tip based on service and friendliness...if your service is bad, expect a $2-3 tip. If its good, I tip between $5-$10

I despise people who choose NOT to tip just for the sake of not tipping....BUT....I despise a waitress or waiter even MORE who KNOWS that they should give good service because its there job then has the nerve to complain when folks don't tip well.

As for the age old, I make $2.13 a hour...thats by CHOICE. No one is forcing you to work that job. You have the abilty to make more by giving good service and being friendly.

If I have to flag you down for refills, condiments, my food order, my food or my check then there is a problem.

I have no problem waiting, as I have been a waitress before and know sometimes it takes a little bit to get to a table..but come on now, if I asked for Ketchup and you don't bring it but instead go take the order at another table, then its going to come out of your tip.

Its got nothing to do with being a slave...its got to do with the fact that we made the CHOICE to come to your restaurant and eat, one which had we not it would be lost business. With that choice I am paying a premium for my food and service, a tip will be left, but the amount is based on how well you do your job, end of story.

You tell people don't go out to eat...if everyone took your advise you would be out of a job.

I was a waitress and while I did get stiffed once in a while, I almost always got good tips...because I made the CHOICE to do my job well. These little girls now think they can slap a plate on the table and fill up a Pepsi glass and that entitles them to my hard earned money.....no thanks honey, if you want the money I WORKED hard for, then you better work for it, otherwise shut the heck up and stop whining.
really?

The customer pays the employees at any business. Where else do you think the owner gets the money to make payroll? A restaurant owner could pay the waitstaff more (and make the decision on how much that is) but then the cost would just be added to the price of the meal. With the way things are now you at least have some way to penalize poor service or reward them when it's good.
