Top 75 Kid Friendly Restaurants from Open Table's Diners' Choice

kids restaurantKids Eat Free night is Tuesday at our family’s favorite special occasion restaurant, Montana’s. If you’re not there by 4:45, you’re waiting.

It’s a fun place that serves up noodles, garlic toast, and ice cream for the kids, and big plates of ribs for us to share. On Tuesdays, they even bring in a balloon animal artist to entertain the kids. We go every couple of months, and the boys love it.

Last weekend on our Montana road trip we pulled in to an Applebee‘s after a longer than we’d have liked day and we were done. The server saw the stress on our face and showed up with applesauces that she showed from under the table to ask if it was okay to amuse the boys with an appetizer. Wow, did that ever make the night better. They had food even before we ordered, and the rest of the meal went smoothly.

Doing the family restaurant thing is a special skill, that’s for sure. OpenTable recently honored the Top 75 Family Restaurants in the country, see if yours made the cut after the jump.

The OpenTable list was compiled with 5 million user reviews submitted to the site. “These winning restaurants are creating a child- and family-friendly dining experience that has more to do with food and fun than merely price and portion size,” says Caroline Potter, OpenTable’s chief dining officer. “They offer inventive menus that can satisfy any child, from those with picky palates to adventurous young eaters — as well as mom and dad.
