We're on the dining plan and I was just wondering about tipping. I know we won't have to pay for our meals when we go, but we still need to tip the staff, correct? On average, you tip 20%, correct? I know when we go out to eat here at home, we usually tip about 15-20% depending on how good/bad the service was. Just curious....
Oh yeah...what if it's a buffet. Do you still tip?

I believe they add an 18% gratuity to your bill...At least last August that's how it worked.:)

Please see the Tipping Information sticky thread on this board. All tipping discussion on the restaurant board is limited to the sticky thread. The first post has the guidelines and an FAQ that might help. Please note we ask for no discussion of personal tipping habits.

There's actually two "suggested" tipping amounts indicated. One is 18%, the other is 20%. Again, its suggested. Not mandatory.

And yes definitely tip at the buffets!!! they work just as hard, sometimes harder than the reg TS restaurants.
