This afternoon, my wife and I and are two daughters (ages 1 [who was sleeping] and 3) visited this restaurant for lunch. While there was an ABUNDANCE of space in the dining room, we were told that strollers were not allowed and a woman with whom the hostess conferred suggested we wake up our sleeping one year old and place her in a highchair because she "cannot allow strollers in the dining room."
While I am sure there is some logic underlying this policy, I would assume it has something to do with space issues and/or hazzards associated with a stroller in the walkway. However, when the dining room is not half full, the logic behind such a policy clearly does not apply. Moreover, the ignorance/arrogance of the "manager" (or woman passing herself off as "in charge") was beyond rude.
Though we are regular visitors to Chatham, we will not step foot in this establishment again.
