Ohh hell no I didn't serve in Alaska -- but thinking about it next year. I just played it was great. If I decide to work at Rays next year I will really have to get in shape. Lots of swimming in Hawaii this winter.They are all in 20's and running they rear ends off. Been 15 years since I served.

That was the first time I sent $$ back to the kitchen because it was soooo outstanding. I am pretty easy normally but with steak I am very picky. Each place rare is differnt and I very seldom get it the way I want and I just accept it. Too cooked too raw etc. For someone to Blacken it and make it exactly like I like was a complete first for me eating out and I felt the cook deserved it.

I'll have to try it there...I love it "black and blue". Impossible to get where I am. I think it's called Pittsburgh style elsewhere?

Ah, to be young and cute and full of energy. Should have taken up waiting tables there when I "had it"! No more!

I tip based on my drink. My drink runs out and I want a drink and i gotta flag the server down to get a refill or another drink, the tip % goes down down.

My drink stays full, the tip is 18%.

It aint rocket science, but it works.

If the tip is not already included in the price, and I have no complaints with the service, I leave a standard 15% tip. If the service is extra-ordinary, I increase the percentage. If the service is sub-standard, I reduce the percentage. If the service was non-existent, then so is the tip.

I do not alter the tip based upon the quality of the food. If I have a problem with the food, I send it back with a few choice words for the chef, but if the service is OK I still leave the standard 15% tip.

If the tip is included in the price and the service is sub-standard, I will not be back and I will let management know of my dissatisfaction. If the service was better than average and the tip is already included in the price, I will still leave an additional tip to show my appreciation.

If the service is substandard, then leave a penny. If you leave no tip, then they just figured you were a jerk and forgot to tip. With a penny, they know you didn't forget either. If they are good, then leave a good tip, they are taxed based on 10% of the total bill as the average, so above that it is really good!
