I always tip at dine-in restaurants.  The amount is USUALLY around 20% however I round so that that total bill is an even dollar amount (after taxes, tip, etc.).  If I round up or down depends on the quality of the service.  If service is REALLY bad I may go lower but that's unusual.  If it was exceptionally good I may round up to the nearest $5 increment.

They usually end up tipping me for being so awesome.

TIPS = To Insure Prompt Service

 

If I get it, I tip if not then I don't and rarely no more than 10% unless the server has done something extra ordinary to improve my dining experience.

 

I don't get tips in my service job. So the servers should be lucky I even tip 10%, oh I when I go to Buffets or Self Serve places I never tip even if they have a server that brings me drinks.
