Customer leaves $2K tip at Swansea restaurant

It's Good News

SWANSEA, Mass. (WPRI) ─ On the heels of a generous tip to a Salisbury waitress, a server in Swansea was next in line to experience the gratitude of the “2020 Tip Challenge.”

Harvest Market posted a photo of the receipt on its Facebook page saying the customer left the server a $2,000 tip on a $12 bill.

“Shout out to the anonymous customer that left this amazing tip for one of our servers!!!” the restaurant said in the post. “You made her day! #grateful”

Harvest Market Manager Megan Sweeney said the generous tip was left by one of their regular customers, who had purchased only a salad and soda.

“He’s a very nice guy,” Sweeney said. “Quiet, but says just enough to make you laugh a little bit.”

The server who received the tip, Lena, tells Eyewitness News she’s extremely grateful and plans to put the money toward an upcoming vacation.

Earlier this week, car dealership owner Ernie Boch Jr. left a $5,000 tip for a waitress at Seaglass Restaurant.

The movement was inspired by actor Donnie Wahlberg, who began the tip challenge by leaving a $2,020 tip for a server at an IHOP restaurant.
