A mystery patron has baffled servers in Ogden, Utah by leaving tips in excess of US$1000.

The Consumerist first drew our attention to the tipster, who reportedly frequented two bars in the town's historic district.

The person left a US$5000 tip on a US$214.75 bar tab, reports local newspaper the Standard-Examiner. The next night, waiters received a US$1000 tip on a bill of US$49.

The tips were so generous that the waiters checked with the customer to make sure he wasn't intoxicated.

Waiters from one bar told the Standard-Examiner that tips were split evenly among staff working that night.

There were rumours that the generous tipper also left an impression at the local golf course.

"I guess they were golfing in Eden the day before and tipped the girl with the beer cart US$1000," the waiter told the Standard-Examiner. "I heard she was crying."
