tip added to bill by restaurant

The family & I went out to a restaurant tonight for dinner. Waitress was not attentive to us at all & it wasn't even that busy. People who came in after us got to order their food first & eat before we did. She had no problem refilling other customers cup, but she would jut walk pass our table. I had to wave down another waitress to get morw drinks. My son really wanted to try this restaurant, so we stayed. The bill comes & it's $180. I look at the reciept & $30 was added for tip! I believe in tipping, but not that much for a waitress who didn't really gave a shit about us! Uuugh. Restaurants should let customers decide how much they want to pay.

    How many people? Some add a tip automatically for large groups.

    How many people in your party? 95% of restaurants automatically add in gratuity for parties over 4-6 regardless of service by the waiter.

    I did ask to speak with the manager & he said 22% is automatically added on toall bills. They can't/won't take it off.

    That's bs. They are basically giving the waiters/waitresses no incentive to do a good job!

    That's BS! Write a review on yelp and email a link to it to the manager. My dh works in a restaurant, they actually really do take those reviews seriously!
