School’s out, the kids are back home, and they’re probably tearing up your house. These 5 family-friendly restaurants in Atlanta have features that make dining out with little ones a little bit less of a headache AND will save you from having to cook a meal or two!
We think Vintage Pizzeria is the perfect spot when you’re looking for ooey, gooey, cheesy pizza and pasta or fresh salads that are also affordably-priced. There’s a chalkboard wall at the Dunwoody location that kids will love drawing on, and mom and dad definitely shouldn’t miss out on the Blue Pie, a pizza made with a craveworthy combo of diced chicken, spicy wing sauce, blue cheese, ricotta, and a smattering of spices. YUM!
Bring the kids right back to school by visiting Public School, a Midtown gastropub that has a fun schoolhouse theme to its decor. There’s plentiful seating, games for both kids and parents to play, a pizza on the kid’s menu that they’ll go nuts for, and a changing table in the women’s restroom. Try their amazing Bison Burger and delectable Nutella Cookie Sandwich the whole family will want to share.
Offering up some of the best Southern food ITP, Folk Art is moderately-priced, outrageously good, and family-friendly. Come for a weekday lunch as the weekend wait can err on the long-side, then follow up your visit with a family walk or bike ride on Freedom Park Trail and the Beltline. We love, love, love their biscuits and gravy. Valet parking available!
This adorable, fast-casual spot doesn’t sacrifice on freshness or taste, making it a great place to bring the kids for a healthy meal. They’ve got a kid’s menu that has a gluten-free mac and cheese that even the pickiest eaters will love, and there’s great wine and beer offerings for mom and dad as well! Locations in Buckhead and Sandy Springs, and we especially love the patio in Sandy Springs! Try the Mother Earth bowl.
Fast-casual Urban Cookhouse has it all for families with little ones. Crayons and coloring books are available for the kids, and they’ve got a drive-through if you’re on the go! Kids will love the Piggy Mac, a hot cheddar pasta with ham, and the Grilled Peanut Butter Fluff, the stuff of every 8-year-old’s dreams. All meats are cooked on the Big Green Egg grill, and kids eat FREE with the purchase of an adult entree on Mondays between 4pm-8pm!
