Scenario 1 (quasi-pizza parlor style):

You order from a counter, pay immediately, then find yourself a table.
Server 1 brings a pitcher of water, fills your glasses, and leaves the pitcher on your table.
Server 2 brings one round of bread, but later asks if you want another.
Server 3 later brings your entrees.
Server 4 clears your table as you leave.

How much do you tip ?
If you pay and tip in cash, do you give the tip to the cashier before you even seat yourself, leave the tip on your table before you leave, or drop the tip in the tip jar as you're leaving ?

Scenario 2 (Armadillo Willy's style):

You order from a counter, pay immediately, then collect flatware, napkins, water and water glasses, and find yourself a table.
Your order is called out, you go back to pick it up, and take it to your table.
A server clears your table as you leave.
