Disney World Restaurant Bans Children.
I found this article interesting in the wake of last summer when a certain restaurant in the big city close to us banned children under a certain age. The said restaurant was getting considerable complaints from patrons about certain other patrons letting their children run around treating the restaurant like a MacDonald's or Burger King. This particular restaurant decided to cater to the majority of their patrons who happened to be adults by giving them a place where they could go to relax without a Burger King type of atmosphere. This restaurant just for your info, is a chain type of restaurant but of the "classier" kind, but not fine dining, located downtown in the business district where a lot of business people partake of it. They cited that if patrons with the younger children still wanted to go to this particular restaurant, that there were several of them scattered throughout the city. Some in the city stood and applauded them and they gained much business, but other's cryed foul and were highly offended and took it to the news and complained to city hall. The restaurant manager stuck to his guns.
After reading the News article link and the above paragraph, what do you think? Should restaurants have the right to cater to patrons only above a certain age, whether they are fine dining or not, or should they have to open thier doors to everyone regardless of age and behavior to the consternation of the majority of thier patrons. Is it discrimination to cater to a certain crowd? Would you be offended if you walked up to a restaurant only to see a sign or be informed that that your children had to be a certain age? What say you?
