Noise Prompts Pennsylvania Restaurant to Ban Kids Under 6

Published July 09, 2011 | Associated Press
MONROEVILLE, Pa.-- A restaurant in western Pennsylvania says it's no longer allowing children under age 6.

McDain's Restaurant and Golf Center in Monroeville says the new policy will take effect July 16.

Restaurant owner Mike Vuick said there's "nothing wrong with babies, but the fact is you can't control their volume." He said all that screaming and crying disturbs many of his customers.

Some restaurant customers said they support Vuick's right to set rules that he thinks are best for his business. But others said they're offended by the policy.

See the rest here:

Personally, I think the restaurant owner can do anything that he thinks is best for his businss (within the law of course). This should be interesting.

I cannot recall a recent restaurant visit we have had that was impaired by the behavior of small children, although I know it has happened in the past.
