Pennsylvania Restaurant Bans Kids Under Six

Ad Feedback

It's simply one of those chances people take when they choose to eat out. They go to a restaurant to enjoy a meal, when the voice of a loud child disturbs them.

While most people understand and sometimes expect such an occurrence, one Pennsylvania restaurant owner has put his foot down saying, "No more. "

Mike Vuick has decided to ban any child under the age of six from eating at his McDain's restaurant. He says kids under that age are just too noisy.

While many customers say kids in the restaurant don't bother them, the owner says he has the right to deny service to them.

"Nothing wrong with babies, but the fact is you can't control their volume. There may be restaurants that prefer to cater to such things. Not here. I think its the height of being impolite and selfish and therefore I instituted a policy," Vuick explained.

"It was an ignorant decision," said customer Stephanie Kelley. "Who says that at six you're magically mature enough to eat in a restaurant?"

"I am offended. It's like you're being discriminated against because you have children," she added.

McDain's is a small establishment that seats 40 people. It's nestled on a golf course and typically serves an older clientele.

Vuick says he's imposing the rule so that those customers will no longer be bothered while eating.
