After an excellent meal, the staff took it upon themselves to add 17% gratuity. The reason given was that 'between November and May, gratuity is sometimes added !' After checking with two adjacent dining tables, (one table of four persons, another of six) it was clear we were the ONLY ones to whom gratuity was added. We were a party of three people, but of course even though we have a home in Lauderdale and have been visiting for over 20 years, it was our British accent that led to the imposed gratuity. I telephoned the owner the following day & he was most apologetic; he was even more shocked when the duty Manager that evening, claimed to be the owner. Although I left 15% gratuity, a pleasant evening was ruined by such rudeness !
