Georgia Restaurant Under Fire for $50 Poor Parenting Surcharge

Toccoa Riverside Restaurant in Blue Ridge, Georgia, received backlash after a Reddit post revealed their strict gratuity requirements.

The restaurant charges an extra 20% for parties over six people, separate checks, and orders from the birthday menu.

They also have a $3 surcharge for sharing food and an additional 3.5% charge for card payments. (Trending: Democrat’s Disturbing Ties to Terrorism Exposed)

One particular rule that stood out was an “Adult surcharge” for adults unable to parent.

A customer recounted an incident where the owner berated them and threatened to charge an extra $50 because their children were allegedly too loud and running around outside, even though they were chaperoned.

“I remember thinking, ‘No way is this real,’” restaurant guest Lyndsey Landmann told TODAY.

“The kids were sitting at one end of the table and they were being so good,” Landmann claimed about 11 children who accompanied four families at the restaurant.

“I even commented halfway through the meal, ‘I can’t believe how well-behaved they are.’” (Trending: Kamala Harris Serves Up Another Dish of Her ‘Signature Word Salad’)

The owner claimed the surcharge was implemented during the pandemic, but multiple Google reviews support the customers’ claims of rude treatment.

“He has the menu in hand and he’s showing us where it talks about the fee,” Landmann recalls. “At first I thought he was gonna compliment us and be like, ‘But you won’t be charged because your kids were so well-behaved.’”

“I was like, ‘They were quiet the whole time.’ He got in our faces and told us that we belonged at Burger King and not at his restaurant. We asked to speak to the owner and he said he was the owner,” Landmann explained.

“I looked around the restaurant and everybody was frozen watching this show he was putting on. He was yelling,” she added.

“The owner came out and told me he was adding $50 to my bill because of my children’s behavior,” the Google review, obtained by the Daily Mail, said. “My kids watched a tablet until the food arrived, ate their food and my wife took them outside while I waited and paid the bill.”

More Google reviews obtained by the Daily Mail seem to back up the couple’s points.

“We were three adults, two children and our 4mo baby and since we entered to the place they gave us a bad look,” one reviewer wrote. “Later my wife was rocking the baby (not crying, just to make him sleep) and this “manager” told her that you don’t do that in a fancy restaurant (of course this is not a fancy restaurant) and later moved our stroller in a bad way.”
