Default Beware on South Beach

for first time visitors and just to refresh everyones memoriies
Remember beside the exhorbitant drink prices

Tips are included in the bill your cc receipt will have a line thats labeled additional tip Remeber 18% is typically already added to the bill. so if you put 15-20% on the cc you will have tipped 33-48%.
Not that I every made that mistake. LOL

I took some customers out to dinner at a nice Steak house. I slipped the waiter my credit card when we were seated so it wouldn't be a question who was paying. When dinner was over all he brought me was the CC slip to sign. I added a nice tip. The waiter never said anything about the 20% (Not 18) for parties of 6 or more that is already added. I ended up leaving a $350 tip on an $800 check. It really pissed me off the waiter didn't mention it.

Good food or not, that would be the last time I go there. It has happened to me with business when taking out 8 or more and now I always ASK if the tip is included.
