    wasn't cheap, but he had the mindset that 10% was an appropriate tip. My husband more than once went back to add to the tip if my dad paid.

      to double the tax, its around 8% here so that is usually a good indication.

      But just like the other day I went out with family, and we had the absolute worst service, food took more than an hour (kitchen wasn't busy and neither was our server) and they basically just left us after delivering the food. I got one refill on water (and frankly there are pitchers and I don't drink fast).

      They did not get as good a tip as they would have gotten if they had ordered the food when they took our order and bothered to at least check more than once on us.

      Now that I think about it, I need to email their corporate because this is the 3rd time this has happened in that restaurant.
