Hey y'all, we would like to hear your thoughts on this. #Restaurant
A Houston family was locked into a restaurant for asking to pay their desired tip amount.

Some restaurant operators think hospitality means running the place as if it were a hospital.

Yes, the guests in this case should have read the terms on the menu; in cases like this, the restaurant will almost always prevail.

But the management of this joint needs to reevaluate its policies. When your food or service is such that you need to resort to calling the police to get paid for it, it’s you who is doing something wrong.

There are cases where people expressly intend to “defraud an innkeeper”; they are good at it and are usually gone before the cops show up.
Could not agree more. A mandatory tip goes against the whole philosophy of tipping.
