This answer is incorrect. Federal minimum wage is $2.13 for servers. There are 3 states that are higher.

Federal minimum wage for tipped employees is $2.13/hour.

11 states pay exactly the minimum.

7 states pay the same minimum wage as non-tipped employees.

The remaining states pay anywhere from $2.23/hour up to $5.80/hour.
