    Re: Would you go to a restaurant that banned crying and screaming children?

    I said no. If you are going out in public, you should have no expectation of controlling the actions of anyone else. Children are not the problem, adults are. I don't like the fact that you're walking down the sidewalk and blowing cigarette smoke into my kid's face or the fact that you're on your cellphone talking to your bff or co-worker about God knows what at the table right next to me. However, I don't expect people to modify their rude behavior just to accommodate me.*

    I know my kids act up sometimes and I'm quick to take them outside. I also go someplace more private to have a phone conversation. I'll manage my personal affairs, you worry about managing yours.*

    Misbehaved children are not the problem, they are a symptom. I'd much rather deal with a misbehaved child than a rude adult with a sense of entitlement, but, again, I realize I'm in public and realize that my rights end where someone else's begin.*

    yup, if they provide me with a high chair, it comes with the notion that sometime a one year old will make some noise.
    no it doesn't. it comes with a seat belt to restrain the child. fortunately that seat belt has a release the parent can use to remove the misbehaving child from the dining room
    Perhaps. then again a beach town is a family town, those that don't cater to childeren tend to fold rather quickly.
    my guess is this practice will cause that restaurant to thrive. those who do not want to have to endure children not being made to behave in a civil manner will choose this establishment as a haven
    now, once other restaurants adopt the same no-brat policy, that original restaurant will have lost its unique compelling feature pushing patrons in its direction

    You sound like a miserable old man.


    We take him where he is welcomed. If you come into that same establishment and try to get all lippy with me about my kid, (you wouldn't), I'd make it hurt a little.

    I know old men like the early bird special, but if they accommodate children, you simply will have to deal with it or dine elsewhere if the establishment has no issue with said children.

    My talk about brats. Seem some can get AARP these days... Here's a clue old timer, if you don't want to dine where children are, get dinner sometime later than 4pm.

    I seriously doubt that. There are completely smokeless establishments that thrive due to their selective standards, and there is a higher percentage of smokers that eat out than parents who take children not of the appropriate age that eat out.

    And, as bubba has suggested, there should be implicit "rules". One might expect this at a McDonalds or equally low-brow establishment. However, if I'm dropping 40 bucks a plate on a meal with mellow ambience and upper-tier clientele, I'd be incredibly pissed at this happening.

    Olde Salty - Carolina Beach, NC



    so this is a burger joint that touts its "kid friendly"?



    Besides look at the reviews of the place. It's looking for attention. It sucks, Justabubba shouldn't have to worry about childeren interupting his 4pm dinner. Ain't nobody going there.

    Nothing gives anyone the right to dictate my child's behavior in a public place. End of story.

    Oh btw I support this dive's right to do so. But to tout yourself as "kid friendly" seems to be a misnomer....

    It could be a dive. Probably is. However, it strays from the original point.

    Ultimately, if you're on vacation or just visiting, finding a quality restaurant is hit-and-miss. I've been to awful places too. Chalk it up to experience.
