The owner of McDain's, a casual eatery and driving range near Pittsburgh, has banned children under 6.
"This is not a kid-oriented place," Mike Vuick told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "There are many child-friendly restaurants that are a lot cheaper to go to."
He told TV station WTAE: "Nothing wrong with babies, but the fact is you can't control their volume. And there may be restaurants that prefer to cater to such things, not here. I think it's the height of being impolite and selfish and so, therefore, I instituted a policy."
The P-G points out that McDain's has never offered a children's menu. The ACLU, usually eager to weigh in on every aspect of American life, says the policy does not violate any laws.
