So, I was at a buffet last night and was wondering what everyone else tips at a buffet. Since a server doesn't serve the food, I typically tip less than what I would at a full-service restaurant. The two things that I expect my server to do: 1. Take away the dirty dishes ASAP 2. Bring refills in a timely manner and kudos if I don't have to tell them for a refill. On average, I tip around 5-10% of the total bill depending on the service. How about you?
