Does tipping encourage better customer service? Cornell University study found only a weak correlation. Happier servers provide better service. A livable wage (no, $15/hour is not livable in Bend!) with reasonable health and other benefits would make servers & patrons happiest.

I prefer to tip based on service given. Bad service No Tip! Very simple! Good service, gets tip! Great service, Big tip!

This way I have control over how much I want to compensate the server for good service or the lack thereof.

Tipping is based on attitude and job done. Some deserve more than others. I will not go to a restaurant with a Service fee.

Well, I agree with the previous comments, but also, we would need to know the amount of said "fee" before having sufficient information to weigh in with an informed opinion.

I tip based on how well, or poorly, the waitstaff do their job...

In my opinion tipping encourages employees to give their best service. In some areas a good waitress can make a few hundred dollars a day.

Raise your prices to cover their pay. I'll tip accordingly. Don't add a "resort fee" to disguise your oppression. I'll just go elsewhere, as I have already done.

Pay people what they deserve. A tip is for good service. It's above and extra. I'm not paying extra for poor service.

Keep the tip. A service fee is no different than raising the price of the meal. Tips are to reward staff for a job well done and for incentive. A motivated employee would make a lower wage without tipping.

The term TIP came from To Improve Performance. (And it was voluntary, NOT mandatory). The better the service was, the bigger the TIP. The servers knew this and strived for it. A service fee provides no incentive. I will not go to places that have a service fee or automatically add on a gratuity.

NO, it should be based on the level of service received, a service fee would limit good servers big tips and lower their income and incentive to give good service.

To me tipping is a way of recognizing and rewarding good service. I would not go to a service fee establishment.

Gabe, my dude, you have to stop screaming like a mad man about Biden and Democrats. You do nothing for your cause. It's so disappointing to see a grown man behave the way you do.

You can't afford to go to a public park or watch the free firework show? Maybe get a job, hippy.
