The Controversial Restaurant Surcharge That's Raising Eyebrows
When families in the United States dine at casual chain restaurants, such as Chili's or TGI Fridays, they expect that basic accommodations will be made for children, including kids' menus and high chairs. But not every eating establishment is designed with kids in mind.
Singapore restaurant Angie's Oyster Bar & Grill has implemented a $10 "screaming children surcharge" penalty on customers with uncontrolled children. An online reviewer, who received a note about the potential surcharge after making a reservation, shared it on social media, expressing their displeasure with the policy.
Angie's has yet to impose the fee on anyone and has told media outlets they are receiving fewer complaints about noisy kids, which was the impetus for the surcharge. Angie's posted a thank you on its Facebook page to customers who supported them over their surcharge policy and provided constructive feedback.
