The service charge and gratuity are included in my catering contract, but it lists both individually. I don’t remember the percentages off the top of my head but it added around $1500 to our overall bill if I am remembering correctly. So basically what I was trying to say is that I think you would still need to add gratuity.

My venue charges a 21% gratuity and I’m not planning on tipping my waitstaff any additional $. Isn’t it just like being charged 18% at a restaurant automatically for large parties? You can tip more for excellent service but it is not required.

I agree this always confounds me.  If it doesn’t go to staff, then what the hell does it go to?
