Lobster Pound and Moore restaurant

April 18, 2015

Richard Moore owner of the Lobster Pound and Moore restaurant posted the following: effective immediately, “we will no longer allow small screaming children.

We are an adult themed restaurant that caters to those who enjoy food and are out to enjoy themselves.”

The post caused an onslaught of negative comments. Mr. Moore deleted it and replaced it with the following.

“I chose the wrong words to convey a message I didn’t want, I love kids and would have them if I could. I shouldn’t have used the word screaming but should have said something like ‘Lil diners having a moment.’

The fact that Mr. Moore received very negative posts is really a shame.

I do believe children should and can display good manners if and when their parents expect good behaviour from them. I also believe most adults enjoy seeing and spending time with well behaved children. However, having said that, I believe diners expect and deserve to eat a meal in a relaxing atmosphere. Otherwise they may as well stay home.. just saying.
