The Alligator Restaurant was a terrible idea.
As customers entered, they had to walk down a long hall with a live alligator walking behind them. The hallway was only wide enough for one, so they could not stand aside and let the alligator pass.
In the restaurant itself, the tables floated in alligator-infested waters. The seats were separate from the tables, and were top heavy, so they bobbed unsteadily. One had to be very careful in order to keep the seat upright.
The idea of the restaurant was that diners could toss scraps of meat from their plates into the water, and watch the alligators eat them. But this made the alligators stay very close to the tables, and they were aggressively hungry.
