There was another thread that mentioned gift certificates as payment. It seemed they were unusable.
If they're restaurant.com certificates, it's more like a 50% off deal if they are accepted.
John, i consider the GC as a flat fee. Yes taxable. You report $100 and deduct whatever you spent on the meal as an expense. Whatever you do with your profit is not accountable for tax reporting purposes.

These have not seemed too appealing to me. I don't love the idea of being out of pocket for the first shop not knowing if I'll ever want to do another one. What do people like ordering at this chain?
Bar and grill food. We have a local one. Deep dish pizza, personal pizzas, chicken in every way imaginable, salads, soup, mozzarella sticks.
