Restaurant Tries to Make Kids Feel Unwelcome

iStock/Thinkstock(MONTEREY, Calif.) — Chris Shake is shaking things up on Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey, California.

Shake, owner of the Old Fisherman’s Grotto restaurant, is enforcing new rules that are definitely not kid-friendly.

Customers with small children won’t like the fact that strollers, high chairs and booster seats are not permissible at the Old Fisherman’s Grotto but Shake says those are the rules and if people don’t like them, they can eat somewhere else.

For good measure, Shake won’t allow noisy youngsters or crybabies either.

And he isn’t worried that these tough restrictions will hurt his business because he hasn’t had a single down year in the last 20 years, or so he claims.

While kids appear to be an irritant to Shake and some of his diners, people with children have also expressed their annoyance with tough rules that preclude many families.
