And The Survey Says ...
My question was, “What kind of service does it take for you to leave a bigger tip than you would normally?”
Not a single person wanted to see a bartender put on a show behind the bar. When asked why not, responses ranged from thinking these bartenders don’t know when someone wants to be left alone to seeing these bartenders as the overly-enthusiastic game show contestant who jumps up and down and screams a lot.
It’s just too much.
So, the No. 1 answer for cash and prizes is attentiveness, timely service and friendliness — and not “the big show.”
