Vortex Bar & Grill / Threated to call the cops if we didn't pay 18% gratuity for horrible service

1 United States Review updated:

I wouldn't eat here again if my life depended on it. Food was good, but the positive comments end there. A few of my friends and I decided to try Vortex to celebrate a birthday. The waiter was very sarcastic and rude when we asked about items on the menu. We asked for separate checks and we were told it would be no problem. When the bill came, not only did we receive only one check, but the waiter decided to slap an 18% gratuity on the check for himself since it was six people although his service was horrible and degrading. Seeing that we didn't think he was worthy of an 18% tip, we asked for and spoke with the manager who told us that the tip was required and that he would call the cops on us if we didn't pay the tip. IT was RIDICULOUS!!! We proceeded to pay because we didn't want to ruin the birthday celebration. The manager took the money and the waiter very rudely said, "It better all be here." DON'T EAT HERE UNLESS YOU ARE OKAY WITH PAYING FOR HORRIBLE SERVICE.

You are a sap. The cops will not enforce a tip; They can only arrest you if you don't pay the menu prices.
