    Buffet - - - - - - - -


    - - - - "Tipping".

    Do you "tip" your Buffet "attendant" the same as your restaurant "server"? (I Do)

    If not, "why" not?

    No replies, so here's the rational.

    At a buffet, I don't "pile" up food on my plates, as some people do.
    I place small portions of food on my plates as if it was received in a restaurant.
    Therefore, I go up to the buffet around a dozen times or more, between the salad, soup, entree's and desert.
    Requiring the attendant returning to our table a dozen or so times clearing the plates, as well as refill my beverage glass. And then bring/serve coffee at the end.

    In a restaurant the server, although brought the food, only comes to my table around 3 to 4 times. (so 20%)

    I'm not sure I've ever attended a buffet. Restaurants yes, but buffet? Not that I can bring to mind. Perhaps that's what happens at the Longboat, I've eaten there a couple of times, I'd need to be advised but I've certainly never tipped anyone in the Longboat. Pubs are not restaurants. Neither are cafes. A cafe proprietor would be bemused if offered a tip.

    I seldom dine at buffets. With rare exception, I no longer consume enough of the food to justify the price.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    I rarely go to buffets also, but when I do I always tip, but then I've been known to tip people at drive-thrus. If I take the family out to eat and I pick up the bill they are required to leave a minimum tip of $5.00 each, and that includes a $5.00 tip from each child they bring. Needless to say, our servers are usually well compensated and pleased to see us return.

    I would prefer servers and everyone else was paid a living wage instead of slave wage and dependant on the goodwill of the customer. I'd probably still tip though because I tip just about everybody.

    The problems with Buffets is that the plates always seem to be so small - not much more than a saucer, so it always seems as if you have to pile things up.

    You're going to the wrong Buffets, I think.

    When we did go to Buffets, we always left a tip. There was place called Country Kitchen that a lot of family members used to like going to.
    When we went, I always left a tip on the table. Usually about five bucks per member of our party.
