McDains Restaurant in Monroeville, PA attracted national attention this week with it's policy to not allow child under 6 in the restaurant any longer. This came about after complaints from older guest about young children disturbing them during meals.
The restaurants web site describes McDains as being "upscale, quiet and casual". It was the noise being made by young children who's parents could or would not quiet them down or simple take them outside when they became unruly that has cause McDains to impose the new no-child rule.
I for one wish I lived in the Monroeville area because I would patronize McDain for a nice quiet meal with out screaming or banging children around. I don't go out and pay money to be treated to someone elses noisy kids.
