Hey all! I was thinking of organizing a Saturday lunch or brunch for 7-ish of my Charlotte-area friends (most of whom are moms with 2 kids) at a place near Huntersville where we could either eat first (probably including their children) and then go to the Raptor Center in Huntersville or possibly vice versa.
I don't have children so I haven't ever tried to look for a restaurant that accommodates kids, but as a diner, I would appreciate it if the children were in a separate area of the restaurant or at least at a time where it wasn't crowded and there aren't unruly/messy/loud children at the table next to me. In my experience, when several kids get together, it is general mayhem so I don't want to disturb there diners that are there sans-kids.
For me, I'd prefer no chains, but I wonder what options are available to accommodate these parameters. I'm thinking that I'd like to do brunch/early lunch first and then go to the Raptor Center so we don't have to be in a rush to get back in time for reservations at some point-certain.
Thank you all!
