    The Right to Refuse Service: Can a Business Refuse Service to Someone Because of Appearance, Odor, or Attire? | LegalZoom
    Welcome to DP - piece of advice, read the links you post and make sure they don't contradict what you're saying.

    You misrepresented what the article said and left out that they listed cases where people were refused service based on dress.

    'No shirt, no shoes, no service' holds. 'No blacks, no muslims, no disabled' would not be legal.

    Here's what the sign should read: 'In consideration of all our guests, we ask that parents please monitor their children. And silence your cell phones. No substitutions. And absolutely NO CLOWNS!'

    I wouldn't expect your kids would be a problem. I wasn't rude, just firm. And ready.

    I don't have a problem with a restaurant making such a policy. It is their business, and they should be able to make such a rule. The rule isn't really unreasonable, and no one has to go out to eat, especially at a particular restaurant.

    As for the children on airplanes comments in the first few pages, that is an entirely different story. Sometimes people do have to fly. It is no where near the same thing as going out to eat at a restaurant. There are plenty of reasons why a parent would have to fly with their children, even when the children are at ages where they are just learning to control themselves. It is obviously not practical to give the child/children a private time out on an airplane. And I can't imagine an airplane ride is all that comfortable for a toddler or baby to begin with, especially ones lasting over 3 hours. I am definitely a voice of experience, although my oldest was very good when he flew at six months old from Hawaii to Florida. I don't think I will have such good luck on this next trip though, since it will be just me flying with a 15 month old and a 2 1/2 yo from NC to San Diego. I wouldn't have a problem if they did make an airline just for adults, but it is highly impratical for anyone to think that children should not fly at all, behaved or not. Sometimes it is the most practical way to get somewhere.

    Of course Kids should fly. I flew many times as a child. Just don't let them scream, or bounce off the seat back in front of them repeatedly. That's all there is to it.

    Bob's Big Boy

    Anyplace that gives the kids their own menu and crayons... that's where you take your kids. Most parents know that. A few don't get it and drag their little ones out to the Country Club or other upscale places. It's selfish on the part of the parents who are too clueless to realize their kids aren't ready.

    Selfish parents who are dragging their little kids to upscale nicer places should pay for a babysitter. Don't show your bad parenting skills off in public.



    Uhm this dive is a strp below these places and touts itself as kid friendly.

    Kid friendly. Not tantrum or screaming friendly.

    In Rev's defense, it's pretty much the same thing. You don't expect peace and quiet when you go to Chuck E. Cheese.

    So it's not kid friendly, it's well behaved at all times or you will be kicked out kid friendly?



    Please, that place is a dive, a hole in the wall that is on the beach. It advertises on yelp as "kid friendly". either it is or it isn't.

    I disagree.

    I'm kid-friendly. I'm tantrum intolerant. And there's a lot of space in between for good, and bad, behavior.

    I'm not saying one should let kids run wild, but if you are at a kid friendly place that sticks a highchair at the table, occasional chirps and even short cries should not be of concern to you.
