Tip: Can you separate the waiter/waitress service from the overall experience?

In theory, the restaurant tip is for the waiter and waitress, but I wonder if we follow that guideline. Last week, I went to Famous Dave's and my waitress was nice. She gave me a basket of free BBQ chips for sampling the BBQ sauces :) She probably thinks I am a first timer because I looked confused, but I have been there several times.

The barbecue, on the other hand, was not so great, worse than my average experience at Famous Dave's. At the end, I gave her a tip at 15% for my lunch, which I think is the average.

Now I wonder if I should have tipped her more because she was nice to me or should I have tipped less because my overall experience at the restaurant was not so great.

Imagine these:
If you have one of the best tasting and best enviromental dinner with an average waitress, would you pay her a big tip?

If you have bad tasting dinner but with a good waitress, would pay her a big tip?

What do you think?
