My fellow Americans (since foreign nations often don't have a tip system) what percent do you consider a fair tip at a restaurant?

15-20%. 25% for excellent service1
I tip 15-20% normally, a little more for really excellent service, a little less for extremely poor service.
The avaerage tip around here is about 20%.
The minimum i do is 15%, 20% if service was amazing
20% is average I think. That's what I would do
I tip 20%
15% or $5, whichever is higher.
I aways do 20% of cost + tax because figuring 10% and doubling it can be done whether I'm sober or drunk.
For large gatherings, they typically include a 20% tip into the cost, but under normal cicumstances 15% is the minimum paid by you on top of the meal cost. You have to take into consideration that many waiters/waitresses in most states are paid less than half of minimum wage and are taxed on an expected income of 15% tips. May not seem fair, but that's how it works.
I usually do around 15%, but 10% at minimum
What ever evens out the bill.
It's it's 36.50 I leave 40... etc.
I'm Canadian though... not American.
Most restaurants have a suggested tip amount on your receipt so I go by that, the tip is more if your bill is more.
20% for average-good service
15% for poor service
I consider 20% to be nice and fair.
I give a dollar for every drink I have, but never leave less than $5. I rarely get food when I go out, I like cooking at home.
I do about 20 because it's an easy percentage to figure out.
10 for less than stellar service, 15 for friendly enough/no negative feelings, 20 for excellent service
I don't go by percentage. If they did a great job they get the largest bill in my wallet. Sometimes it's a five sometimes it's a twenty.
18% is fair in my opinion. If i am sitting at a bar i usually try to give about.50 -$1 / drink depending on the difficulty of the drink to make, so that comes out to be about 20-25%
depends how hot she it lol
I do 20%
I would tip higher to a very timid person
