Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Regulations

One thing a lot of people forget about when designing a restaurant is accessibility for the disabled in terms of dining comfort. Your restaurant may have ramps, handicap accessible bathrooms, and parking spaces, but there is more to making a space accessible to the disabled. Below are the standards for designing with regards to ADA regulations for access to tables.
