A woman who a local restaurant manager refused to serve claiming she is a habitually poor tipper told WXII Wednesday she is in the process of consulting an attorney.

Monica Covington was recently banned from the Kanpai Japanese Steak and Seafood House on Stratford Road after manager Michael Lam said servers and chefs refused to serve her because of her less-than-expected tipping history at the establishment.

Covington said her spat with the restaurant began in 2008 when she was told she would have to pay an 18 percent gratuity to dine.

"Yes, because we can't keep continuing to serve her anymore because the servers and chefs are not willing to serve her," Lam said Tuesday when asked if he refused Covington service.

I dont think she should be suing.. Go somewhere else lady. I tend to believe the owner of the restaurant that his servers didnt want to wait on her. Why wouldnt they want too? Because she is a bad tipper. They probably got tired of getting stiffed and said enough!..

If she was tipping like she should why would they do this?

Im proud to say im a good tipper   TeddyR

It's a private establishment, and they can refuse to serve anyone they wish.  And for that matter, even if she won, does she really want to eat food served to her by people she sued?

I hope the judge throws this case out.  Like Jim H said, the restaurant has a right to refuse service to someone.  We had that same policy at the grocery store I used to work at.  Also agreeing with Jim H, even if she would be successful in suing them, why would she want to go back there. 

When it said that the people who work there didn't want to give her service, I remember some training video I had to watch at my first job "you may not remember the customers, but they remember you."  After working there for a few days, I learned that is not true to some extent.  You do remember those customers good or bad.

Seeing this reminded me of a book called Waiter rant.  It's about a guy who works as a head waiter at a restaurant who mentions several times about people not tipping them enough and saying how they had on their computer system notes about customers like not tipping enough and such.
