  • However long I feel like. Usually an hour or two. If you stay that long, or even longer, tip the server accordingly. It's not fair to take up their table alllll night, and then either leave them nothing or next to nothing.

  • If they're slow, I've spent a couple hours, easily. A friend and I like to hit up Denny's late at night for study sessions. We tip VERY well to make up for being PITAs.

  • the last time i went out with the girls we stayed out 4 hrs. 2hrs we spent at a local fundraiser for mother to mother and had spa treatments done then went for drinks at mc donalds and stayed there an hour long than we should have(2hrs at mc d's), it had been a few months since we got out and lost track of time....oops i think 2 to 3 is a good number

  • I've sat with friends for about 3 hours once. We tipped well. Usually do when I go out with friends because we always end up just sitting there for a long while after we are done eating to talk.

  • I went to the Jerome Bettis bar.... I think it's called..... never mind I don't know. Anyways it was during a steelers game and the traffic was terrible and we waited 2.5 hours for a table(they originally told us 45 min. wait to be seated) They gave us free appetizers and we stayed for 3 hours to eat and watch the game. It kind of depends on the place. Some places you just eat and leave and others you can take your time and hang out for a while

  • In a resturant, having a meal probably lasts 1-2 hours are the most then we may change location to other place to have a drink.
