The Check

How do we handle the check, anyway?

We often order family-style and split the check evenly. However, we leave it up to each dinner party to decide.

Possible ways:


  • Split it evenly
  • Order one check for food (split evenly), one for drinks (split among drinkers)
  • Split it evenly, except for some people request their own check
  • One bill, everyone figure their contribution using your item total times 1.3 (to cover tax and tip)
  • Separate checks (usually restaurants don't like this)
