We’ve all seen the obligatory “tip” some restaurants charge for large parties (which could be as small as 8 people, and the tip is often 18% or higher).
We’ve seen the charge for splitting an entree (okay, they have to put out two settings, etc.).
We once even got charged for “extra spicy” when we emphasized we wanted a dish labeled “spicy” to actually be spicy!
But now I’m starting to see a charge for splitting the bill ("$1 Charged to All Cards Splitting a Bill"). (I’m not sure what happens if you ask for separate checks up front.)
And one restaurant near us said any party of more than 8 has to order off the banquet menu (at $40/person, possibly twice what dinner would otherwise cost).
Are other people seeing these? And what other “sneaky” charges do you see?
