Tipping while eating at the bar in NoVa/DC/MD

LoveFood2Much | Feb 5, 200805:22 AM

I apologize if this belongs on a different board but couldn't find any other post like this.

After many years of overtipping, I want to ask fellow CH's what is an acceptable tip when eating at the bar of a restaurant. I've put too many incompetent servers through college with the money I've let behind as a tip.
I'm a single male who eats out 95% of the time at a variety of price levels. From a Ruby Tuesday's to a Proof to Dixie Bones to Il Forniao.
When you only have a bartender most of the time serving everything, and in this area the service is possible the worst I've experienced in my 27 years of world traveling and dining, what are accetable levels of tipping for poor, fair, good, and great service???
