Don’t be afraid to take the kids out to dinner! We get it and we’ve totally been there–some restaurants aren’t the best place for restless kids and toddlers which is why we put together this list of 7 kid-friendly restaurants in Tampa Bay! We’ve tried them and we can guarantee the whole family will have a great time!
This is one of our new favorite places to take the kids in Tampa Bay! The Heights Public Market at Armature Works features several local restaurants, so there is truly something for everyone in your party. The Market does not have table service–you go up and order from one of several restaurants and bring your goods to a table inside or outside! Our favorite spots are Inside the Box Cafe, Ava and Astro Ice Cream Company. If you want something with table service, try Steelbach! It’s delicious! ArmatureWorks.com
If you have hyper kids and need a way for them to burn some energy Game Time offers a variety of games like Skeeball, Air Hockey, and Dance Dance Revolution. While the family waits for their entrees they can enjoy playing games and winning tickets which beats them having to wait restlessly for the food to arrive. Game Time offers a complete menu of family meals to share, along with adult entrees and kids meal classics. gametimeplayers.com
We love snagging a table outside after playing at the nearby Water Works Park! Situated along Tampa’s Riverwalk, Ulele’s children’s menu won us over with the price and selection…at $6 for kids 12 and younger. Ulele.com
Datz has long been a favorite for local families, but when they released their children’s menu…they won our hearts once again with selections like ‘I’m Not Hungry (boneless fried chicken strips), ‘That Looks Gross (peanut butter sandwich with marshmallow fluff and sliced bananas), and ‘I Want to Go Home Now’ (elbow macaroni with marinara sauce). datztampa.com
On sports nights it can be hard to get the whole family out of the house. Usually what’s on every husbands mind is will I be able to see the football game at the restaurant we go to? Reassure him he has nothing to worry about because Eats!American Grill offers an array of HD TV’s so he can watch his favorite team play. Are you worried about what your child might be watching? At each table there are audio channels so you can choose what you want your child to listen to. In addition children can enjoy several children’s movies that are displayed on select TV’s.
This beachfront restuarant is a long time family-friendly favorite in Tampa Bay! Sink your toes in the sand while the kids build sandcastles before you head in for lunch or dinner–the grouper is always delicious! Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill is a great place to enjoy a sunset with the family!
RumFish Grill® has made a big splash on St. Pete Beach with its one-of-a-kind restaurant, bar and shop located in the TradeWinds Beach Resort. But did you know that it’s also a place where you can learn about Tampa Bay’s tropical environment?
Simply dining at RumFish Grill will open your family’s eyes to the wonders of the underwater world. A 33,500-gallon tank spans an entire wall of the dining room. There’s a touch tank outside of the dining room and so much more! Learn more here.
