I always leave a 20% tip at restaurants. I know they depend on tips as part of their earnings. The service has to horrible for me not to leave a tip.

I live in Rockport MA. Rockport is a fishing and lobstering town. It is a summer vacations spot. There is a Restaurant here with beautiful ocean views. It's called MY PLACE BY THE SEA. It's a gourmet restaurant. The waiters and waitresses make $2000. a week in tips. One waitress I spoke to said "This weekend I made enough money to pay my month's rent.

In small restaurants there is tip system. In medium restaurants, tip is not compulsory. In big resturants (Three star to Five star) 10% of the total bill is tip payable.
