  • Standard is 20%, and it goes up or down in cases of very bad or very good service.

  • 20% or more for excellent service, a big mess if we leave it from the kids or the random server who leaves drinks off the bill (BONUS)

  • We always tip 20% and a little more for we got really good service. Servers live off of their tips and it's not exactly an easy job so I don't feel that it's fair to tip less than standard except in the rare case that someone is a real jerk. A lot of times, if there is an issue with the food, it's the cooks fault not the server so we take that into consideration.

  • 15% sometimes more depends on the waiter/waitress but always 15% minimum

  • Minimum $3.00. Bigger bill 15 to 20% depending on service.

  • 15-30%. It's typically an even 20%, but if service is exceptional and in a really nice restaurant that we go to semi-regularly we'll tip more. Poor service and quality gets the 15%....unless it's really, really, really bad.

  • We start at 20%, and then depending on the service it will stay at that, or go down. It's up to the server to earn that 20%... Sadly it's very rare to tip the full 20%, people just don't care about customers.
