Bj’s Country Kitchen

8 Apr

200 W Shaw Ave # 103 Clovis, Ca. 93612

1 Star out of 5

Pros:

  • High chairs

Cons:

  • No boosters
  • Tight spacing, no room for stroller
  • Nowhere to nurse
  • No changing table

Personal Experience:

I’ve been to this restaurant before & had good dining experiences, I don’t know if the economy has gotten that bad or just customer service in general. Yet the thought that kept coming to my mind was…So gross.

I mean, I feel grossed out even thinking about eating there. The food was heeecka greasy & I mean GREASY.We waited so long to get our food & I began to wonder if it was because they were letting the hash browns soak in the oil for that long. Granted, when the waitress said we had 5 tickets ahead of us (after waiting 20 mins from our order being taken) I asked if there was ANYTHING they could bring out. She happily said she could bring out my biscuits n Gravy…Thank you Lord!

The tables are SO close together, even if it is loud enough for your kid to make noise, the tables are only an arm’s length away so it’s like you’re sharing a table, haha!

Now this is my own growing pet peeve, but everything was sticky. I get a little grossed out thinking that it’s been THAT long since the plastic menus have been wiped down,especially being that you handle them BEFORE you get your food, so it’s not from the food that it’s getting that way.

The food just wasn’t that good & I regretted not eating at Denny’s. Not that Denny’s food is top cuisine but it sure beat Bj’s Country Kitchen.

1 Star out of 5 Stars
Pros:
  • Have high chairs
  • If your child is noisy, it’s not really an issue.
Cons:
  • No booster seat
  • No Changer
  • High chair cannot be turned upside down for a car seat
  • No car seat sling
  • No Nursing area.

Personal Experience:

I think the atmosphere of a place & how comfortable you feel w/your child makes a difference in each place that is visited. Since our son is older, the place was fine for him to walk around, look at toy/candy vending machines & not disturb others as he walks past them &/or waves : D There are some booths, so a car seat could go in one of those & if REALLY needed you could always use the bench seats as a changing table. Although my husband & I try not to do that in restaurants, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to take off that poo! = P

Starbucks

2 Oct

1/2 Star out of 5

Pros:

  • Drive thru-you don’t have to stay there.
  • There are a couple of items kids can have & some drinks can be modified w/out caffeine for kids.

Cons:

  • Nowhere to nurse-no nursing room & the chairs are uncomfortable.
  • NO changing tables
  • Not really room for you to park your stroller inside.
  • No high chairs

Personal Experience:

This review is from a subscriber; She noticed that there really isn’t a baby/kid friendly Starbucks. There doesn’t seem to be a changing table or high chairs at ANY of their billion locations.

It seems intentional to keep kids out; which is a growing trend of making places “Adults only”.

I personally almost never go to Starbucks, I’ve never been much a of a coffee drinker. Altho, I have wanted to down a few cups just to have the energy to get through the day of taking care of my son, but I figured the caffeine would go to him too & HE didn’t need more energy.

I Love Sushi

465 W. Shaw Avenue  Clovis, CA 93612

3 1/2 Out of 5 Stars

Pros:

  • Have High chairs
  • Have Boosters
  • Loud enough for children but won’t give you a headache.
  • Changing tables in BOTH men & women’s restroom.

Cons:

  • There’s not really room to put car seat in booth & the chairs are too small for that as well.
  • The high chairs can be turned upside down so that u can put the  car seat on the chair but its on a slight tilt so you would have to make sure NOBODY pushes it and that you are RIGHT next to the baby. It’s a little too dangerous for me & I’m too nervous to risk that.
  • No nursing area. The tables are too uncomfortable to nurse at & if you can get a booth in the back, that’ll help, just be sure to not get in view of the tinted window next to you.

Personal Experience:

The name of the restaurant matches how I personally feel when I think of sushi (*sigh 🙂 I have always had a generally good experience there as well. On this particular occasion our waitress was Judy, VERY sweet girl but in general the staff is nice & accommodating. Any questions I had, especially regarding for my child, they were happy to help.

I wish I could rate this place a little higher but as a nursing mother it is not very comfortable & I would have to say that it is more kid friendly rather than baby friendly.
