We took our son when it first opened. I wanted to see what it was and heard it wasn't bad. I think my son was a bit embarressed and we didn't go back. He was around 12 and those kind of feelings were coming up for the first time. LOL

I think I can understand some parents not wanting their children in Hooters.....I'm sure there's a lot of Hooter's customers that don't want the children there either.

Nothing wrong with bikers...we're a friendly lot.

To me the food is just like any other bar and grill.

All that being said, since Ker's Winghouse opened up, hubby doesn't go to Hooter's much anymore. He says the girls are prettier (cough cough) there.

Neice of the family next door works at the Hooters in NYC (while she goes to college). She says its the main one.

She says on a good night when WWF was at the Garden she was making $200 a night. Pretty girl.

It's not a lowcut shirt at all...just tight!

I am more concerned of what I see on TV and in the malls, and even in some High School grounds. Our local Hooters is more of a gathering place for some groups, we have the Cowboys (yes, the real cowboys) and some college groups, and what looks like some senior groups. We also have a "Veterans Coffee Group" (Which I may join if I can find them again).

I've been in a few Hooters around the country. It really depends on the geographical location, and the date and time you go. We have a nearby Applebee's which is too crowded on some lunch days, I just pull into the Hooters for lunch...

One man's prude is another man's lady. Just sayin'.

If someone leans more toward modesty in their opinion about kids seeing skantily clad women, that's no reason to look down on him or her. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion - like it or lump it. (no pun intended)

Can't we get some more wings at this table?

I'm kinda leery about taking them-my inlaws almost had a heart attack when I mentioned it. I have driven past and know it's mostly men there (it's also next to a Harley-Bike dealership, and the majority of the men seem to be bikers. I don't want to seem like I don't approve of them....it's just the whole male atmosphere around beer....with language perhaps....). The women do wear short shorts and tight tops. My husband says that the kids see skimpier on the beach....it's a restuarant and not a bar....I don't quite know why I am so leery about it.

Would you take your children there, or am I right to be uncomfortable?
Go with just your husband, and see what it's like. The Hooters in my neck of the woods is just a restaurant with good food. I am a female, and it doesn't bother me in the least that there are pretty, buxom servers in shorts. Your husband is correct - the kids probably will see more on the beach (and at the mall! ) than they'll see at a Hooters restaurant. But check it out first, sans kids, and then go with your gut feeling.

If you were watching the Today Show when Lady GAGA was on in the morning you saw her do a virtual orgasm after singing one of her songs. Can't get much more sexual for the kids than that.

Heck, they have little girls doing the GAGA moves in a dance program at school. By now Hooters is tame. You won't have anything to worry about, it's TV you need to censor. LOL

They're grown ups. And that's exactly what I was told when I was a kid and thank god I wasn't "sheltered" from every possible hint of the real world.

The two times I've been to Hooters (a long time ago) they didn't have any.

The neighborhood restaurants around here show more cleavage than Hooters does...
