Sittin' pretty

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!  A real post follows this one -- yes, you read that right, a real post, from me, remember me? But first, I have a quick question.  Have any of you out there had any experience with those portable high chairs that attach to the side of a table top?  The whole family will be heading to Seattle for Christmas this year, and my stepmother has graciously proposed to find one of those new-fangled gadgets to use when we're all out celebrating pre-Christmas Eve dinner at the Space Needle.  And, of course, to take back home with us afterward.  My question is, is there a particular brand or style to look for?  Mademoiselle is getting big now, and will be one year old in a week (I know, I can hardly believe it either...), so it has to be something that will hold up to a toddler's squirming.

Thanks!

The Phil & Ted's Lobster chair. It's awesome. Highly recommend it and it's rated up to 37 lbs.

We never had the kind that clips onto the table, but we had a folding canvas booster chair called the MyChair. It was OK, not great. But it can also double as a chair at a park, etc. For the most part, we just use restaurant high chairs.

The one we had worked but only on certain (few) tables. If the table has a ledge underneath it won't clip on or if the table is too thick, etc. It didn't get used as much as I thought it would. Restaurant high chairs won out in the end.

The Fisher Price Healthy Choice booster (actually a high chair) is only $20 on Amazon and cheaper if you can find a used one. It's a little bulky, but works great. But we almost always use restaurant high chairs - I've only run into one restaurant without.
