Dining out as a family can be a wonderful way to spend time together. The added perks of not having to cook or clean up are a huge bonus for the adults. But restaurant meals can definitely add up when you’re out together. No problem! We’ve created a list of great spots here in YYC where kids eat free.
Cravings is a wonderful market restaurant that is off the beaten path. They make fresh food daily and offer a great selection of menu items including pastas, steaks, pan Asian cuisine, seafood, pizzas, and burgers. And be sure to check out their beautiful dessert counter.
When to go: Kids ages 6 and under eat free Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays with the purchase of an adult entrée.
Via Cibo is a casual restaurant that serves Italian street food. With pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, and salads on the menu, you are sure to find something that pleases everyone’s palate.
When to go: Kids eat free on Mondays with the purchase of an adult entrée.
The Park Kitchen and Bar
The Park is a nice, yet casual, spot that serves local flavours including ‘bowls’, pastas, pizzas, burgers and more. You’ll definitely want to check out their patio in the summertime.
When to go: Kids under 12 eat free Tuesdays after 2pm.
Montana’s is a great place to go with your messiest of eaters. They specialize in BBQ, so everyone’s hands are dirty anyhow. As an added-bonus, they encourage colouring on their paper-covered tables – that’s about as child-friendly as it gets!
When to go: Kids eat free on Tuesdays, with the purchase of an adult entree (excluding the airport location).
Bonus: Certain locations also offer additional entertainment such as balloon-twisters or magicians – contact your nearest location, ahead of time, to find out.
The Fairmont Palliser Hotel
If you’re going out to celebrate something special and are looking for a finer-dining option, this is the place to go. This luxury hotel is beautiful and centrally located. They have highchairs available upon request.
