The owners of Grant Central Pizza, an Atlanta Georgia restaurant, have banned crying kids, asking patrons to “tend to their crying tots outside”.
Dear all present and future patrons: GCP is proud of its reputation as a family restaurant, a title that we will work to keep. Unfortunately a number of our diners have posted unpleasant experiences because of crying and unsupervised children. To ensure that all diners have an enjoyable lunch or dinner with us we respectfully ask that parents tend to their crying tots outside.
According to Bites, The owner says he’s “still in favor of kids visiting his restaurant”, but that he was forced to enact an official policy on crying after customers complained about noise.
I get lots of emails asking for family friendly places, and some emails asking for restaurants that families don’t frequent. It’s been a common issue raised in comments. What do you think? Should you be asked to take your crying children outside?
