    Depends on the quality of service. I'm guessing some are satisfied with a low hourly rate considering some of the terrible service I've had the pleasure of enduring...

    Just depends if the server gives a shit about their job. If the server is a lifeless soul with no personality, walking around taking their time to get to my table I wont tip much but if the server does their job and has a personality I will tip a good amount. They have to earn their 15% tip :p

    I dont go by % and a lot of Hawaii people dont either but Hawaii people do tip HIGH, example if i go to a eat in restaurant and the bill is 25 bucks i tip like 5-6 bucks ESPECIALLY if the service was good. I didnt know servers only get that pay:eek:
