In an attempt to answer complaints about screaming and unruly children, an Atlanta family restaurant has added a new disclaimer to their menu to control the nose level in the establishment.
If you visit Grant Central Pizza, you’ll notice the menu offers pizza, pasta, and a parental disclaimer that reads as follows:
“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.”
Donnie Parmer, the restaurant’s co-owner, says he wants to make it clear he likes kids, and he wants them there. He says Grant Central Pizza is a family establishment. But, he says, he doesn’t want one person to ruin the experience for everyone.
Parmer says the restaurant received a number of complaints about children crying on Yelp, and there was also an incident where a child hit another customer in the head with a toy. That’s when Parmer says the written request to parents became necessary.
