While Seattle certainly has its fair share of bars, pubs, restaurants, and nightlife for the over-21 crowd, where can you turn when you’re looking for a good old-fashioned family food run? These locations cater to all ages with lip-smacking and kid-friendly palate pleasers.
Doc's Marina Grill | Multiple locations
For a ferry ride followed by family-friendly fare, look no further than this favorite Bainbridge Island and Port Townsend joint. Kids will love the outdoor deck seating on a nice day while they chow down on chicken strips, mac and cheese, a hot dog, a hamburger or cheeseburger, fish and chips, or parmesan pasta (several of which are served with classic house fries).
Elemental Pizza | Multiple locations
At any of Elemental’s three locations in U Village, downtown Seattle’s Columbia Center, or Tacoma, kids 10 and under can fill up on kids’ menu favorites while the adults enjoy a dressed-up woodfired pizza and glass of wine. Options include the rigatoni and meatball pasta plate (with smoky tomato sauce or butter and parmesan), pesto grilled cheese with fruit and veggies on the side, grilled chicken skewers with marinara dipping sauce plus fruit and veggies, and mac and cheese with fruit and veggies. They’ll love to wash it down with fresh raspberry lemonade, and the whole table won’t be able to resist a homemade ice cream sandwich after lunch or dinner.
Peso's Kitchen & Lounge | 605 Queen Anne Ave N | 206-283-9353
Bring the kids along on your margarita outing! This Lower Queen Anne Mexican spot caters to all with a kids’ menu featuring two chicken or beef tacos with beans and rice; a chicken, beef, or cheese quesadilla with beans and rice; a child-size chicken or beef burrito; children’s alfredo; beef sliders with fries; and chicken strips with fries.
Teddy's Bigger Burgers | 17705 140th Ave NE, Woodinville | 425-408-1604
Even the little ones can enjoy a bigger, better burger at Teddy’s! The kids combo features their choice of a cheeseburger, chicken tenders, or a corn dog served with a drink and fries or applesauce. While you’re at it, why not treat them to a kids milkshake or malt? Choose from chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, peanut butter, chocolate peanut butter, pineapple, root beer, Nutella, cookies and cream, mint chocolate chip, or orange dreamsicle.
