So, we're contemplating Ballys Steakhouse for dinner and see printed below each option on the prix fixe menus an 18% "service charge". After doing a little research, I'm pretty sure this is in addition to any gratuity, which sends their price into the Stratosphere ! (on par with say, Picassos or Le Cirque, who have no service charge to my knowledge...) I've yet to experience this "service charge" scam( I recognize the need for an added gratuity for large parties, etc.,but for parties of 2? c'mon!). Is it just for the prix fixe? How many other establishments are now engaging in what, IMHO is a deceptive practice in Las Vegas?
