MONTEREY, Calif., July 30 (UPI) -- A California restaurant owner doesn't want children in his establishment, so he posted a sign about two years ago informing customers that he won't provide highchairs or booster seats.

Now, Old Fisherman's Grotto in Monterey has three such signs.

In addition to informing patrons about those rules, the signs also reads: "Children crying or making loud noises are a distraction to other diners, and are not allowed in the dining room."

The restaurant also doesn't allow baby strollers.

People who don't like the restaurant's policies are advised to take their business somewhere else.

"If a place has the rules, that's what the rules are, you go in and abide by the rules or you find a place that's more suitable to your dining," Chris Shake told KSBW.

Despite the prohibitive policy, Shake said business is doing just fine.

"Well, let's put it this way -- I haven't had a down year for over 20 years and our business continues to grow," Shake said.
