I completely agree. It is also the amount of work they do though.
If I go to Hooters with the boys and we order 4 or 5 pitchers of Beer and food (about $100) I think she deserves a lot more of a tip than when I take one girl to Bogart's Steak house (never less than $100) since she only served two people food and one or two drinks each. Plus we are a lot rowdier and a bigger pain in the A$$ at Hooters than my girlfriend and I are at Bogarts.
Just to prove it's not just a Hooters thing (I go for the wings really
), I also think a man/woman at Denny's who serves Breakfast for eight (maybe $50) also deserves more than the lady at the expensive restaurant serving me and a girlfriend.
To be a little stereotypical, Waiters/Waitresses are usually all the same kind of people (students, moms) working for the same reasons (get through school, feed the baby) and there is no reason that being at a more expensive restaurant automatically entitles you to more tip money. I mean they both do the same thing right? Take your order, Bring your drinks/food, present the bill.
