But all the geniuses claim they will take their business elsewhere (and pay the same higher prices but not have to think about why) and the severs will look elsewhere so they can get better tips. LOL higher prices will effect tips whether they are known or not. At least this guy is letting the people know why the prices are higher...
Here is my prediction his business will do just fine. More businesses should do this so people can start getting a clue on how things actually work instead of thinking prices rise by osmosis and welfare grows freely on trees and stop supporting idiots like Obama Bush Romney Clinton and the whole anti-liberty crowd that has been ruining this country for decades...

Tips are almost always given on the amount of the check. Higher prices = higher tips. in that respect he is screwing over the servers even more.
I'm sorry but you are wrong for the most part. Yes tips are pretty good at nice restaurants and nice people tip pretty good most of the time but a good amount of people will either stiff the waiter or not tip the regular amount. This is comming from me who worked as a waiter all through high school, I have alot of family and friends who work or worked in the restaurant industry, and I been around the restaurant business since I was a kid.

Theft would imply taking something belonging to the restaurant. If you saw a situation like that happen in the past, you shouldve screamed bloody murder for it was the establishment breaking the law, not the employee.
Tips belong to the server/bartender, not the establishment. They are not temporarily the property of the establishment until the server goes home/clocks out/whatever.

If he is going to rewrite the menu then yes just change the price but the way he is doing it will hurt the employee’s tips. He is just being an @ hole.

First of all free cell phones were granted by G.W.Bush. They are a continuation of an old law established by the FCC.The money is provided by the universal tax on your cell phone bill. You would pay this tax regardless of the free cell phones. Secondly, Romney would have done the same as Obama or worse. Where was Romney's outcry when the bailouts were given? You believe Romney was against giving these guys money? He has corporate campaign donors as well. What is this "your Obama"? I don't personally know him and I did not vote for him. He is every American's president. So please keep me out of your partisan crap. Since you have partisan memory lapse let me remind you G.W. Bush was responsible for implementing the bailouts. Why the outcry over health and education entitlements? We spend as much on defense then welfare programs. I do not advocate war yet my tax dollars are spent on bullets and bombs. I would much rather my tax dollars go to improve education and healthcare for all citizens.The reality is that everyone who pays taxes are paying for some program that they may not agree with. The difference is most people don't make it a political issue.

Hmm...Hamburgers is his biggest seller and beef prices have increased nearly 100% over the past few years...and yet he is going to tag a 5% Obamacare preium on peoples bill for an expense that he hasn't incurred yet and doesn't know if it will cost him anything?
I smell idealogical retard...

Ironically free market capitalism will punish these retards with employees leaving and customers going elsewhere for both political reasons and financial ones.edit on 15-11-2012 by Indigo5 because: (no reason given)

So you are saying that on a bill of $10 you would pay the server less because of $.50?
Again if 5% is going to be that hard on the person buying the meal they should stay at home to begin with. We are talking about a nickle for every dollar spent at a Denny's. This is not like some top dollar place. Their menu is around the same cost as any other fast food place.
