The responses were varied and of course, full of strongly-worded opinions. We rounded up all the comments via Facebook, Twitter and our original post and below are the results:

  • Limit the hours in which when kids can dine there: 5 votes
  • Allow them if they are well-behaved: 4 votes

  • Ban them completely: 10 votes
  • No ban, but parents should know better: 3 votes
