Amendment: Whether Reservations for Regular Customers Can Be Used as a Reason to Turn Away a Traveler from a Public Restaurant.
No, reservations for regular customers cannot be used as a reason to turn away a traveler from a public restaurant. The law says that public restaurants should treat everyone fairly and equally. Reservations are like a plan to save a spot for someone who often comes to the restaurant. However, these reservations cannot be an excuse to say no to a traveler who’s looking for food or drinks. Even if some tables are reserved, the restaurant should find a way to serve the traveler and make them feel welcome. This way, everyone, including travelers, gets the chance to enjoy the services of a public restaurant.
