Top 10 Places to Eat in Houston, with Kids
What I’ve learned over the last 10 years of visiting Houston restaurants, with kids, is… not all are great for families. Some are just not set up for kids, and some just don’t like kids.
I do understand not liking kids running through your restaurant or damaging property or disturbing other patrons. I find this irritating too. (And seriously, watch your kids.)
But I was once at a casual restaurant and the kids were eating quietly at the booth. We had already spent way more money than the coffee drinkers surrounding us… and the owner came out to thank every single table for their business… except ours.
This place was small and it was deliberate and I was shocked and furious. And I quickly learned to be careful where I spent my money.
So… with that said, there are many family friendly restaurants in Houston and JillBJarvis.com has updated our 10 FAVORITES!
Betsy’s is right in Bellaire’s Evelyn Park and serves up a food that’s not your typical fast park food.
6. Swanny’s – Swanny’s Grill has a patio, playground, cornhole, volleyball and soccer fields. And table tennis and pool and sports on TV. And live music (on weekends), darts, shuffleboard and fishing!
They serve hamburgers, salads, wraps, tacos and more. Plus there is a kids menu with $5 kids meals.
Buffalo Grille on Bissonnet has always been one of our favorite places. It’s casual, breakfast is served all day and the tea is highly caffeinated.
Luigi’s Pizza & Axelrad on the edge of midtown (and nearly in 3rd ward) share a patio between their restaurants. And this patio is filled with hammocks.
The restaurant is sleek and casual, in a great location, has plenty of free parking… and is a much better option than the traditional chicken nuggets kids meal!
Go inside the airport, ride up the elevator and eat lunch as you watch the planes and helicopters!
