Took some friends to experience Buffalo Chips Restaurant and was very embarrased with what our waitress said when she came to pick up our money. She simply said it is a min 18% gratuity, and walked away. (How Rude) Have worked in the dinning industry for 30+ years and if she was my employee she would be reprimanded for sure, that kind of server is bad for buissness. A gratuity is a gift not a given, unless stated on the menu.
Certainly would consider NOT returning just because of that, even though the wings are tasty, there are much better places out there.

OK the beers on tap are good. This is a fun place with good food, not elegant.
The fried green tomatoes are gooood! So are the chicken wings, hamburgers and fires.
What else is there to ask for in a local little place like this. They deliver what you ask for.

Just another average place. Nothing to brag about. I feel like screaming when a restaurant charges extra for celery and dressing when wings are ordered. The grouper sandwich was delicious, but very pricey for a sandwich.

You won't mistake this place for the Anchor Bar and Grill in Buffalo anytime soon. Wings are average - meaty but greasy. Curly fries are a little overdone and not cooked in fresh oil. Service is OK. Setting is more neighborhood bar than it is restaurant. This restaurant is living on a reputation from years past. Many better choices for wings in Bonita/Naples area.
