    That's all vs. That's it?

    Hello, teachers.

    I'm wondering which is correct for the replies to questions, "That's all" or "That's it," in the following cases.
    Would you give any hint for the usage?

    1. A waiter or a waitress at a restaurant says to you, "Anything else?"
    2. A salesclerk at a shop says to you, "Anything else?"

    Is there any big difference in meaning between them?
    Does the difference occurs according to situations?

    I hope you'll help me with this!

    "That's all, thank you" works for me.

    Both work for me, followed by "thank you." "No, thank you" is also appropriate.
