restaurant service charge

i had lunch at my favorite restaurant today and there was an 18% sevice charge added to the bill
is a service charge in place of or in addition to a TIP
i asked the waitress but she was new and didn't have a clue
So it was the waitress who had no clue, eh? That's funny. Why would you even consider paying a tip (for service) on top of a service charge? Or did you happen to order the "service" a la carte?
Actually, you sound as if you might have some extra money to invest. Can I interest you in some real estate in Brooklyn/Manhattan? There's this certain bridge, see?
