    Under the guidelines which warrant the refusal of service; the safety, welfare, and well-being of fellow patrons means what this manager did was permissible. Now, if the underlying theme behind the customer's complaint was in fact race than that demonstrates the customer understands these guidelines and was smart enough to use the proper language to prompt a refusal of service.

    Waiting 2 hours however seems suspicious. A party of 25 would either be informed that we lack the accommodations or a swift rearrangement would be made of an entire portion of the restaurant -- even setting up two tables -- to seat them. Restaurants are in the money making business last I checked, and a party of 25 would bring in money....

    However, not understanding the logistics of seating people, of accommodating parties of that size, many people who came in after them probably were seated ahead of them and that may have caused a bit of rambunctiousness on their parts creating a hostile atmosphere which could lead to people feeling unsafe or threatened. People dining there do have a right to a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. The party's size doesn't give them the right to infringe on other customers dining experience.

    Not in the context of the conversation.

    Her premise was that anyone who was willing to use a weapon to defend themselves was "scared".

    I replied with post #191.

    Are you able to follow that line of reasoning?

    24 people, no reservation, at a chain resturant. Yea, OK.
    That's my whole problem with the story. I see no indication that they had a reservation.

    If the restaurant had a valid reason for denying them service, then why would they offer the people a free meal?
    I took a look on Google maps. judging by the size of the building and parking lot, it looks like 25 people is a significant percentage of the capacity. I could see it being impossible to seat a group that large together, at one time. I wonder what the likelihood of the mistakes might be someone not telling them when they first walked in "we don't have room to seat you all together."

    What if the "one custom,er complaint" isn't true?

    Do you believe everything on facebook?

    Definitely something to fire a manager over if true, unless the customer recorded a threat or something, on his smart phone... Which is getting more common these days.

    Why does anyone care whether or not they had reservations?? Can you help me understand how that is the least bit relevant?
