 Then they ran from the scene, leaving the restaurant a complete disaster. Napkins, silverware and broken furniture covered the floor. 

Two families had an all-out brawl in a busy Mississippi restaurant on Saturday.

‘I was really concerned for the children,’ Stella Jones, the assistant manager of Juicy Seaford, told News 12 WJTV. ‘It was two separate families that were arguing amongst each other, and the little children nearby could have easily been hurt.’

Jones criticized the Jackson Police Department for not responding soon enough. She said she and other customers called the department multiple times during the fight, but they arrived too late. 

“This is our first experience of something like this, so we’re going to have to put something in place and definitely need to call the police sooner because they did not get here in time,” Jones told News 12 WJTV. 

 Councilmember Ashby Foote, who oversees Ward 1 where the restaurant is located, downplayed Jones’ comments about the police’s response. 

“JPD got here in a timely manner, but once they heard police were on the way, they left. The police got here in five minutes,” he told News 12 WJTV.

After chucking restaurant supplies at each, the warring families began a fist fight before running from the restaurant after police were called.

The restaurant, formerly known as the Kickin’ Crab, offered discounts to those who witnessed the fight, News 12 WJTV reported.  

The fight happened on Saturday, but it’s still unclear what sparked the drama. 

Luckily, no customers or employees were hurt. 

Some customers had the presence of mind to snap photos of the suspects, their cars or their license plates as they ran from the Jackson restaurant, News 12 WJTV reported.

‘If citizens out there recognize people in the video, I hope they’ll call up the police or the police station and let them know so we can track these people down and hold them accountable,’ Foote told WAPT.

So far there haven’t been any arrests, according to multiple media outlets in the area.  

DailyMail.com left a message with the Jackson Police Department. 

While police work to identify the suspects in the video, Twitter users reacted to the viral video in typical fashion. 

Many either used the #JuicySeafood or retweeted video and added their own quick quips. 

Just like @FlueyKung, who said, ‘Who amongst us haven’t rioted inside a Juicy Seafood Kickin’ Crabs when they ran out of hush puppies?’

@SaveJxn played up the sign seen in a photo outside the restaurant: ‘All Jacksonians must be accompanied by an adult.’
