The power of Yelp complaints has pushed one Georgia restaurant to beg its diners to keep their kids quiet, or at least remove cacophonous children so that everyone else doesn’t have to hear them screaming over their pizza.
FOX5 in Atlanta says the owners of the local pizzeria added the below request to their menu, after a number of complaints and negative online reviews.
The restaurant’s co-owner says he likes kids, and wants his place to remain a family establishment. But that doesn’t mean one feisty tyke should ruin it for everyone. He adds that no one has complained about the disclaimer since it was added to the menu.
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.
While some might argue that raucous youngins are just part of the family dining experience, perhaps parents shouldn’t have to be told to take care of meltdowns out of earshot of everyone else.
