The other night I was at a restaurant it was a chain stake house. And there was a disabled person there with her husband and companion dog (Black Lab).
She must be a regular because the staff was very accommodating even brining the working dog a few scraps as her people ate. The dog just stayed under the table and made no fuss very professional and well trained.
It was the couple next to them that pi$$ed me off…
They saw the dog come in and made a face and gave each other a look…then they said a few words to their waitress who I think she just told them that being a companion dog he was legally allowed in a food establishment.
Obviously they didn’t like her answer because they just gulped down there drinks paid and just left without eating looking rather pissed off…
I’m so glad they did I thought that was very rude…I hope someone dinged there car in the parking lot..
I’m just glad that the people with the dog didn’t really see what happened.
When I see a companion dog I am rather proud of the dog knowing that I have this wonderful breed and seeing what they can do always amazes me.
Oh wow. I can't believe people would feel that way. I just can't relate. When I see service dogs, I am just awed, and it takes every bit of self-control I can muster not to smother them with hugs and kisses.

I agree totally with what Connie has said, and it brings a lump to my throat of sheer pride when i see service dogs doing their jobs- especially as you say if it is a lab.
People like that make you sick, it should be a case of there but for the grace of God go I, let's just hope neither they or their family ever need the services of one of these fabulous dogs.

I'm the same way. I cannot understand if the dog was under the table and being quiet why they would get so upset. Their loss for never knowing the unconditional love a lab (or any dog) can give.Oh wow. I can't believe people would feel that way. I just can't relate. When I see service dogs, I am just awed, and it takes every bit of self-control I can muster not to smother them with hugs and kisses.
I just love seeing working dogs. WTG for the restaurant waitress to act like she did. In my town I know of a blind woman who do not feel very welcome when she visit the restaurants. The staff makes her feel unwelcome, even if she has the right to be there.
Oh ETA. I agree with the others of course. I can't believe how people can be so rude and heartless.

I would have requested the table this asshat couple had just vacated. Nothing better than a meal with a good view!
Sounds like the place was better off without them anyway. Jerks.
Service animals are better behaved than most kids I see in restaurants. Heck Shanny is better behaved than most kids I see in restaurants.
