Has anyone hosted a private party at From The Boot?

We are hosting a christening lunch for my daughterr at From the Boot. It will be fairly large, 70 people, and served buffet style in a private room. I went over contract details with the owner yesterday and they are really giving me a good price. But they are including 18% gratuity, per server. There will be 2 servers. I understand 18% gratuity, but not per server, that is like paying 36%. I questioned the owner and he said its because the servers will be doing everything - bussing tables, clean up etc. He said they do it for all large parties. Still seems odd. He said it was standard and others pay it. Has anyone hosted a private event there and paid this? I am curious. I am praying I misunderstood but I doubt it.......
