We stopped at a new place yesterday – basically a clam shack, with burgers and such as well. You order at a counter and pay, get a order number receipt, then find a seat at one of the picnic tables around the side. After a while they announce your order is ready. You pick it up from the counter, carry it to your table. After you eat you bus your trash to the nearby trash bins.
Incidentally, all the drinks are individual cans/bottles, so no waitresses running around with free refills or anything like that.
Basically, other than taking your money/order and shoving the tray over to you, you get no ‘service.’
BUT of course there’s a big tip jar beside the register.
So, in those circumstances, do you feel like you need to tip? And if so, the ordinary amount (whatever percentage you feel that is) or just a token buck or two?
