Is not tipping illegal?

The whole point of the service charge for large parties depends on a lot of reasons. Most of the time large parties want separate bills, and as a waitress who works at an establishment that doesn't impose a SC, usually it's one or two bills out of a party of 16 that will tip, which as someone pointed out is frustrating especially when you worked hard all by your self for such a large table. Or you'll get big families on one bill and sometimes they figure since the kids shared a few entrees, the tip doesn't have to be great even though they don't consider 8-14 year olds drink soda an iced tea like it's going out of style. So I'm down with the SC, but I'm not down with crappy service. My solution, especially for the SC is if something has gone wrong more than 3 times, be it the server hasn't refilled drinks, been to the table or is taking wayyyyy to long to get back to you for whatever reason, GET THE MANAGER! because they are the only ones with the authority to do something, like cut the SC and in that situation, your providing some kind of proof that that 18-20% SC is not being justified by that server, and if they're not an idiot, they'll know exactly what to do. I think if you don't make an effort to talk to the manager or get someones attention as soon as you see that service is gonna be a piece of shit, you deserve to pay the 20%
