Pro Tips Gratuity Included

Yes, a 'service charge' is the same thing as gratuity.

The Problem

Tipping is well known around the world as a way of thanking someone for outstanding service offered during your stay. In Miami, tipping is not quite obligatory but it is often included in the check. If the bottom line of the bill includes a 20% tip, you absolutely do not have to add more for the server.

The Other Problem

Here’s the catch, the waiters and waitresses don’t explicitly tell you the gratuity/service charge has been included when they give you the bill, so if you’re careless, you end up tipping twice. Be careful when signing restaurant and drink bills, make sure to look at all line items in the bill, especially in South Beach.
