Waffle House refuses to give server generous tip

RALEIGH, North Carolina (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - It appears Waffle House has a limit when it comes to tips from customers.

On Mother's Day, Waitress Shaina Brown received a $1,000 tip directly from her customer.

But Waffle House refused to give it to her because it was left on a credit card.

The restaurant says it refunds large tips unless they're paid by cash or check to avoid dispute about charges.

But then Shaina got a call last week from a customer, who wanted to remain anonymous. The caller had heard about her problems and wrote her a check directly.

Brown now calls the customer her hero.
