Go to these restaurant bars any nite and you will see drunks. Ask the City Police if they have ever busted a drunk driver coming out of these establishment. People get drunk 7 days and nights a week in these place. Hell, people wouldn't go if they couldn't get drunk.
So your saying all the london police are getting paid off for not arresting the drunks. They are geting paid off from the owner for not closing the bar down because they are letting the people then drive drunk.

Yeah, they may say it's $2.50/hr but they have to pay minimum. Most restaurants depend on tips to do that but if they don't then the restaurant has to do it. That's why I won't tip at a medium level restaurant. You're not helping the server, you're paying the restaurant more. They get enough. High end restaurants are a little different. The server can get up to $20/hr, but not around here.

In regards to "Tips Accepted", you must have never worked in the industry or you would know the employer would just claim enough tips for you to reach minimum wage. By your cheap a$$ not tipping, I'm sure you get the "best service" on your repeat visits, plus a little "extra" in your food/drinks.

So what you're saying is, your employer would break the law for you. And then you imply that a server would break the law. The IRS is implementing a system where you will pay on a certain amount of tip income, whether you got it or not, based on the employers gross. It's actually been proven pretty accurate in bigger more tip friendly venues than small tows such as London and Corbin. But they're pushing it anyway. Sorry, but I'm not going to tip and help your employer. They get enough anyway.

I think tipping should be illegal.

That is just rude and cheap. Even if you think your reasons are justified, your waiter or waitress deserves better treatment than that.

At this point it wouldnt matter if they bring an Outback, with the Obama deathcare and the extra taxes being taken out already in our paychecks and the increasing price of food and gas who can afford to eat out anymore. I will spend my money at the grocery and eat in from now on cant afford to eat out anymore.

Probably so, but the restaurant does not deserve extra. I would be happy to give a cash tip to a server who does more than the general requirement. But I don't want to give it to the restaurant which happens more often than not. I have pizza delivered occasionally. I've been told by the deliverers that they fight for that delivery because I tip well. I'm five miles away giving a cash tip. Whatever the delivery person wants to do is none of my business. Of course the law is to report the tip and they should do that. If they don't, oh well. I said tipping should be illegal but that's not actually true. Paying at least minimum wage should be the law and tips should go to the server not the restaurant. If it's to simply make the server feel good and not to help them financially, I could just pat them on the back. Same difference and the restaurant pays.

So you tip a pizza delivery guy/gal, but not someone who waits on you hand and foot. Makes no sense to me, no difference. I tip my pizza guy/gal at least $5 no matter what and I live less than 2 miles from them because they have to use their gas and they make squat for an hourly wage. I also get my pizzas and cab rides or whatever else super quick because I'm not a cheap asshole for what it's worth.

I get pizza's quick. I own a car, several of them in fact so I don't call cabs. I've never been waited on "hand and foot" most of it is just standard service, which deserves a standard tip. Pizza delivery includes a surcharge anyway and one Papa John's driver told me that was for the driver, but still I tip them well because it goes in their pocket. I don't like tipping a place I just paid. They should have to pay minimum wage and then the servers get the tips. Not how it works.

But if you want a pat on the back, good job there.

Hey, if you want to subsidize a restaurant in the name of giving somebody a pat on the back, be my guest. I won't.

If you're a true food service employee you don't have a lot to give away anyway. Why subsidize the restaurant.

I used to do the books for a local franchise of a large pizza restaurant chain. I always thought it was funny because if a server was caught keeping tips they were fired. All tips went in the till. None of the servers actually made minimum wage even with the tips but would be insulted and mad when they weren't tipped. They got paid the same either way, but you couldn't explain it to them. Being a server is a thankless job. Why anybody would do it except in high end restaurants is beyond me. Now with the IRS cracking down on credit card sales and assuming the server gets part. Hell, I wouldn't go near it, but people do.

Never been to Cracker Barrel after the first time. Hate the place. Crappy food and Crappy service. Get a real job if you don't like the way it is. I bet you want to give lousy service and expect a tip anyway. Usually change is just a message that you're a crappy server. But it goes to Cracker Barrel anyway. One way or the other.

Yeah, but I'm guessing you use the services that the tax revenue brings in. Go hug your bible and enjoy that nasty sandwich. Personaly I can't wait for somewhere new to eat, with out burning up fuel at $3.20 a gallon to go to other towns.

So, back to the original question, when's it getting built?

Tired of seeing the griping about pay and part time jobs. Most of you on here probably don't even want to work so don't complain about part time jobs or pay. Don't work somewhereif you don't like their ways. You can thank obamacare for the part time jobs now. It's not the restaurant's fault, lay the blame where it belongs..........

There are two types of people who eat in restaurants:
1. People who are old and filthy rich and enjoying life now because they didn't eat in restaurants when they were young.
2. People in their 20's-40's who will never save a dime because they give all their money to some old filthy rich resaturant owner.

Their is no legal requirement to Tip anyone. The term Tip means To Insure Prompt Service.
The tip dose not legally need to be currency. It can be Movie tickets, or other ojects of value.
Given to the person who provides the service.

Are they going to take food stamps? It's really not fair if they don't.
