Does the idea of "child-free" resturants offend you?

I don't even have little ones anymore and it bothers me. I don't mind kids at all - cranky, crabby old people, though, they bother me. I don't guess there will ever be a resturant that won't allow them in, though.

    Yes it does. Clearly people don't have children and are assholes to even think of this idea. If they are worried about children affecting their customers then each one of these places should have a family section for families with children

  • Yes. It doesnt ever bother when kids act up or babies cry. When i go to a resturant its family time.

  • I don't really care. If it is child free it would be hard to go there so I suppose they won't get my business. On the other hand, it would be nice to go out in public with no screaming babies or whiny children around.....

  • No, not in the least. If you are going out with your family then go to a family restaurant. If you are going out on a date you may not want a screaming baby or kid at the next table. Or parents yelling at their kids. Or kids throwing food at your table. Or bouncing around and knocking into you, Etc Etc Etc
    No one FORCES you to go to a kids free restaurant and it's private property so they can make the rules they like. That's the bottom line.
