A place for moms to connect
I just came across a blog that raises an interesting question...Is Hooters a family-friendly restaurant? What do you all think?
I have eaten at Hooters a few times in the past, and I want to say we ate there once when Aubrey was much younger. but it's not a restaurant I've ever really considered when thinking of somewhere to go with my family.
i don't consider any restaurant that serves alcohol to be a "family restaurant." perkins is a family restaurant. hooters is casual dining.
I would say yes. They have a kids menu. They do cater to the kids. We've not had a problem. Just don't go on sporting events.
I'm obviously not a mom. I'm only here to add facts. I have seen men and boys (mildly, such as a single inappropriate grab) physically harass waitresses and management did nothing. [Still I wouldn't want my 7 year old nephew to copy that disgusting behavior.] Recently, a Hooter Girl put my computer on her facebook page where she was naked. Anyone could have looked over my shoulder and seen that. I have actually seen Lesbian Hooters waitresses (not at all mildly) physically sexually harass the straight Hooters waitresses (in a Hooters restaurant and in their uniforms while working.) I would not want children seeing that. The only two women I have ever known to be whores, yes, actual prostitutes, were Hooters waitresses (in costume and working while making this known to me). No I would not want children hearing that. No, neither incident was a joke. And no, I did not accept their offers of services. Now you may think that that my experiences are terribly unusual. But consider the behavior by a Hooters Corporate Trainer outlined in the Jarman Gray case. To see a copy of the original court petition see The Smoking Gun website, or just Google Jarman Gray and Hooters. There a Corporate Trainer encouraged the waitresses to perform sex acts for money with the customers. The Asst. Manager Jarman Gray was fired for objecting. These are not the most graphic things by far, but these are some of the things I have seen in the afternoon or early evening before 6. I'm old, single and not going to be affected by anything. Especially since I know who to stay away from. But I would never take a child into that place.
