    You guys must go out to eat a lot.....I can only remember one misbehaving brat, in all of my 64 years, and he wasn't loud for long. Stuff a french fry in their little mouths and they usually quiet down. Oh yeah, it was my 2 year ol grandson....
    But there have been several instances of adults acting like children, and sometimes the adults in question are the staff. One waitress didn't get a tip because she sat us next to a table with a young married couple having an argument. It was late in the evening, near closing time, the rest of the place was empty, and she sat us next to them....I am usually a very good tipper, but not that time.

    Ever see those "we reserve the right" signs people like to hang up (especially Koreans)? One of the reasons right there, buddy.

    Private business gives them that right, and I wouldn't fault them for a second.

    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.






    I call that a dive. not that its a bad thing.


    Read the links, they are rude in general. not a place I would go with or without kids.

    It's called "Olde Salty". You don't need to be Miss Cleo to realize it's a dive.

    I'm not saying name is a 100% indicator, but more often than not you can see the name of a restaurant and know what to expect. If you had a kid and had to pick between "Redwood Lodge" and "Big Mama's Stuff 'n Chug", you can kind of get an indicator about which one may run you a hundred bucks for meals and drinks with a pianist in the background on a baby grand, and which one may have peanut shells on the floor and ESPN on the big screen.

    They are entitle to post those signs all they want, it's a violation of civil rights to remove me unless it's for my safety or the safety of other patrons. Inconvenience doesn't cut it.

    I just remembered this.....we were traveling, got a really poor nights sleep, I felt like hell, having breakfast at a Denney's....
    4 " young men" were acting up, even making loud noises with those pull-popper fireworks, and I went over and told them "if you want to act like jerkoffs, do it outside. One says, "I don't jerk off", and I told him that its too bad his daddy didn't 9 months before he was born..
    His friends laughed at that one. Then the manager came over and told them to leave, after asking which one was paying. That one got to stay a few minutes longer.

    This restaurant is on private property. Thus, the owner should retain the right to exclude whomever he desires for whatever reason, or no reason at all.
