For Cocktail Servers, wages are rounded out by a healthy number of tips. Of the $16.34 they earn per hour on average, a little more than half comes from tips. Job satisfaction is considered about average by most people in this profession. Women account for the majority of Cocktail Servers who took the survey — 86 percent to be exact. Although a majority lack health benefits of any kind, roughly two in five do enjoy medical insurance, and just under one in three get dental coverage, too. Figures cited in this summary are based on replies to PayScale's salary questionnaire.
