We've been to the Quarry Cafe twice, and as a matter of fact are going there tonight with two friends.
Rank #5 of 6
I sympathize with the mother who was embarrassed about her child throwing food on the floor, but really, because that child "doesn't get it" at home and only laughs, does not mean other clients have to tolerate this behaviour in public. I have three grown up children, and seven wonderful grandchildren (one only four, with Down Syndrome, which makes her a challenge when in a restaurant, but it's the responsibility of the family.to maintain some control, not the proprietor of the restaurant, the waitress, or the other diners.
The distressed mother's review is not a good reason to avoid this above-average dining place, and I'm sorry the mother had such a bad experience. But the problem lay in the child's behaviour, which apparently went uncontrolled, and not in the quality of the food -- nor was it the fault of the waitress. Bottom line: what kids get away with at home is not excusable in public.
