"Important tip on tipping" Miami Beach Favorite Tip by Shaft28

Miami Beach General: 79 reviews and 92 photos

Favorite thing: One thing I was not prepared for was the automatic inclusion of tips on your food and beverage bill.
In fact Miami Beach also has extra taxes on everything so it even gets a bit more inflated.
So beware of what the particular restaraunt or bar has already included on your bill. Most include 20%, some 15%, a few less and one or two none at all. So read your receipt and make sure everything is to your satifaction, they may include it but that doesn't mean they deserve it.

Fondest memory: Getting used to the sticker shock that 2 mixed drinks will cost you $17-$25, and not caring.
