8 Spots to Dine Out with Kiddos

Long gone are the days where we could make our own personal pizza’s at Noble Romans and watch the oven from a special kid viewing area. Where to head today? Here are our top picks:

  • Steak and Shake - who doesn’t love the kids eat free deals, hats and milkshakes? If you head to the downtown location head to the Circle for pics by the monument, carriage ride or Rocket Fizz afterwards.

  • Good Morning, Mamas- These yummy SoBro spot is full of delicious eats and fun environment in this remodeled gas station. Afterwards head over to Eagle Creek for a nature hike or zipline with Go Ape.

  • Bub’s Burgers- outdoor seating with people watching on the monon, burgers, ice cream, waffle fries and busy bags with the little ones.

  • Mackenzie River - offers all types of food and gives you goldfish for little ones to hold them over while your food is being prepared. Head over to the Monon Center for a pre or post nature walk. The entrance from Rangeline offers trails in all directions from parking lot and picnic shelters.

  • Scotty’s - Sundays are a must for Scotty’s. Kids eat for $2(also on Tuesdays), face painting and plenty of TV’s to watch sports. Greenwood location even has a play area.

  • Teppanyaki/Hibachi Restaurants like Izakya, Benihana, Tomo or Fujiyama - onion volcanoes, jokes(BUTTER-fly as they drop a big glob on the cooking surface), knives and fire :)

  • Fire on the Monon- great outdoor seating, coloring books, park by the and after your meal hit BRICs for ice cream or take a stroll on the Monon.

  • Pizza King - Sitting in train cars and a train delivers your drinks, plus outstanding pizza. Choo- choo!
