We know the feeling well: it’s 6:32 pm and your kids are either crawling beneath the restaurant table or breaking the sound barrier with their delightful shrieks because you just might’ve forgotten to pack the arsenal of snacks that they require. When three crayons and a coloring book won’t do, the 13 restaurants below deliver with child-friendly entertainment that’ll keep them occupied until dinner is served.


Wildfire’s kids’ menu is always delicious (with options ranging from mac ‘n cheese to grilled salmon with broccoli—you can always dream, right?) and accompanied by apple sauce and juice or milk—but we especially love their seasonal activities. Make time for their fall pumpkin carving party, or their wintertime breakfast with Santa.
