Joe's: "they add 25%tip!" Santa Catalina Island Restaurant Tip by oregonrose

Santa Catalina Island Restaurants: 19 reviews and 27 photos

while the menu on the window show reasonable prices, dont be fooled. we took 8 of us in for a quick bite before starting our day on the island - seated right away, food came quickly with drinks in paper cups. Service was typical diner type, no refills or checking in on us ( not expected in a diner setting) we were shocked when the tip bill had a 25% tip! dont mind 15, or 18% added for a group and almost always tip 20% but 25? they were rude and unapologetic.
