    Default Restaurant that has banned screaming children says business is better than ever

    Restaurant that has banned screaming children says business is better than ever

    A North Carolina restaurant has put a ban on unruly children, with a sign on the front door saying screaming children will not be tolerated.
    Brenda Armes, the owner of the Olde Salty's restaurant in Carolina Beach, said she got sick of customers complaining about parents who couldn't control their children during meals.
    She said many parents allowed their children to treat the restaurant like their personal playground, misbehaving and 'squawking'.


    No brats allowed: Olde Salty's restaurant in North Carolina, where owner Brenda Armes has banned diners with screaming children


    Parents will whining children will not be kicked out of the restaurant, but an employee will approach them and ask them to take their child outside and calm them down.
    And the policy seems to be working, with business booming at the restaurant.
    Mrs Armes said: 'It has been a good thing for us. It has brought us in more customers than it has ever kept away.'


    Daring policy: Mrs Armes and the sign at the front of her restaurant. The move has been greeted with mixed reactions, but Mrs Armes says business is booming

    The new rule has had a mixed reception with diners.
    Gary Gibson, who was visiting Olde Salty for the first time, said: 'It's not very enjoyable when you hear a bunch of kids screaming. It's nice to see a sign like that up.'
    But Ashley Helfin, a mother of two, said: 'I've never seen a restaurant say, don't bring your screaming kids in here. You can't help it if your kids scream.'
    But Mrs Armes disagreed, and said her 'no brats' policy was here to stay.
    She said: 'We want to attract the type of people that come in knowing they aren't going to have to sit behind a table with a bunch of screaming children.'


    Quiet environment: Mrs Armes said she got fed up of customers complaining about parents with unruly children

    Thumbs up

    Excellent! I absolutely HATE eating somewhere with screaming kids who run around, touch EVERYTHING & annoy you when you're trying to have a peaceful meal - whilst the mother ignores them.

    I would go to this restaurant because of the new policy. THANK YOU! Huge thumbs up from me.

    You can't help it if your kids scream.
    Yes you can! It's called teaching children manners i.e. parenting!

    Thanks for posting!

    Apparently now she's anti-autism because a symptom of autism is screaming.

    ''No screaming children'' sign at restaurant creating lots of noise

    Ha! There is a mediclal condition called 'exaggerated subjective response of loudness' by the ear, in which the listener who has a tested audiogram ‘within normal limits” but still finds certain sounds abrasive, painful, and irritating.

    BLAM! PEANUT BUTTER AND JAM!

    There's a disability to counter you screaming autistic kid's disability, lady. Personally, I don't care if you have a medical condition or not, you should still treat others with respect and not do rude things, like sit and scream in the middle of a resturant. Kelly Chambliss looked like a whiney bitch in the video too. She needs a beat down.

    good for the owner.

    I wonder how the mother of the 2 screaming brats would like it, if I showed up at dinner time at her house,and just stood there and screamed for the entire meal?

    Gawd bless The Olde Salty and Brenda Armes! Totally reasonable to expect your customers to control unruly children, I think it's what any considerate person would do.

    I would pay to see that and finally a restaurant with balls. I hope this catches on. Parents need to take better control of their sprogs. It is impossible to enjoy a night out when there are ferals running around and screaming.

    Good! I never tolerated my kid acting an ass in public and would certainly never subject anyone else to that shit. Take your damn brats home, Ashley - and honey, you need to take a good look in the mirror before you leave the house in the future! That dress is in worse taste than those little screaming shits you drag around with you.

    Kill her.

    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    Good. If parents can't manage their children's behaviour they should stay home.
    When your daughter plays "House," she pretends to be an annoying doctor with a pill-addiction and a limp.

    Ah! See I wasn't the only one that noticed that....

    I don't have an issue with kids in a kid-approprite "restaurant"; or well behaved ones at adult restaurants, but I hate kids (esp the screaming kind) so I don't go to Chucky Cheese, etc so don't bring your little monster to my restaurants!
