9 Restaurants That Require You to Give Up Personal Liberties

Some restaurants in the U.S. prohibit photography, dining in large groups, and even the ability to see—but which are actually worth forgoing your freedom to eat at?


We’re all familiar with the three standard restaurant rules: no shirt, no shoes, no service. As a society, we’ve accepted that these rules maintain a level of civility when food is involved, but what happens when a restaurant tries to take away an actual liberty—say, speech? Or the freedom to take pictures with your cell phone (gasp!)? What if a restaurant tells you that you're not allowed to tip your server?

Some of these restaurants are good enough to justify the assault on your personal freedom—others are just plain gimmicks and should be avoided at all cost.
