Are children still taught table manners?

This question came to mind because I was thinking about when my son was small. I took him and the grandson of a friend out to lunch. The little boy was drinking from the cream container, crawling under the table, and doing everything else that was unacceptable while eating. I spent most of the meal keeping him in check and trying to teach him a mini version of table manners. Even my son was appalled by his friend's behavior. Needless to say, this was the only time that I took this child out to eat with us.
