An Atlanta pizza restaurant has had it with unsupervised/crying kids taking over their restaurant and bothering Yelpers who dine there. As Fox 5 in Atlanta reports, Grant Park Pizza posted the following disclaimer on their menu after receiving a number of reviews on Yelp that mentioned disruptive children:

"Dear all present and future patrons: GCP is proud of its reputation as a family restaurant, a title that we will work to keep. Unfortunately a number of our diners have posted unpleasant experiences because of crying and unsupervised children. To ensure that all diners have an enjoyable lunch or dinner with us we respectfully ask that parents tend to their crying tots outside."

Yelpers have docked Grant Park stars because "parents let there kids roam the place" [sic], "loud, unruly children...seem to take over periodically," and "I can't stand a misbehaving child- though I dislike their parents more!" Also, owner Donnie Parmer says there was an incident where "a child hit a customer in the head with a toy that was not that customer's child. Or toy."

Here's the local news report:
