Hidden Service Charges

It’s always a good idea to scan your bill, instead of blindly popping your credit card into a check presenter. Two scenarios to be aware of are A) During late night dining, regardless of party size, some restaurants tack on a service charge (perhaps they are counting on guests’ intoxication to work in their favor), and B) When you are involved with a large party and a standard gratuity is added, the house should be calculating the tip based upon the pre-tax total.
