    I would imagine non-wait staff is paid the normal minimum wage. Seems an inequity if you are now including them in the tip pool

    Eating out is just becoming too expensive (in my opinion), and this is just one more reason not to. My wife and used to eat out twice per week (avg $35 per visit), but now we've wised up on realized it's just a complete waste of money. We now go out to a sit-down restaurant about once per month.

    So restaurants, keep raising those prices, and while you're at it, go ahead and pay your staff at least $15 per hour!

    In the past calender year, i have eaten out at a proper restaurant (not just waffle house, dennys or Mcdonalds etc) three whole times. Twice was for a UFC event at Buffalo wild wings, and once was at Golden coral for veterans day.

    We eat out at least every Friday....over the past 6 months we've had to eat out a lot more due to travel for medical appts.

    I worked in a steak house in high school (Soph, Junior & Senior years) and the highest paid employees other than the managers were the cooks. They didn't get a share of the tips and depending on the day the wait staff may have made more money (usually Fri, Sat & Sunday was very good for the wait staff but Mon to Thurs not so much.)

    LOL...I like how you differentiate between McDs/Dennys and BWW/Golden Coral. That's good stuff.

    I'd have no problem with that scenario but not all restaurants can afford to do that. In the late 70s, a friend of mine's son worked at a steak house in Myrtle Beach, SC and the owner's policy was he'd pay you what you're worth. If you only do the minimum amount of work he'd pay you minimum wages. If you were worth $15 an hour the he'd pay you that. In talking with the locals it turned out he had the best restaurant staff in the area as well as one of the most profitable businesses.

    For me, my 3 fave meals to eat at Denny's are the Ham and cheese omelet with hash browns and wheat toast, the lumberjack slam and ultimate skillet.
