They charged us a full buffet price for DS "since he ate". Yeah...needless to say, that didn't happen, and in addition to really bad service, the person that should have received a HUGE tip from our table received nothing.

If 18% was automatically included, we wouldn't have added any additional tip, especially just for "okay" service.
My local buffet allows children under 2 to eat free. They charge a discount kid's price from 2 to 12. That is crazy to charge for a full price when the child is basically eating off Mom or Dad's plate.
