Places Where the Kids Eat Free in YYC

Calgary Restaurants Kids Eat Free_feature

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

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.

When to go: Kids 5 and under eat free from the children’s menu every day. Kids ages 6-11 can enjoy dining from the regular menu at half off.

    Hi, Thank you for all the valuable info 🙂 I noticed that you go ‘Glamping’ in the mountains…we’re a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 kids, ages 7 & 10yrs) & would love to know about Camping cabins, RVs, etc. for rent. Would you recommend any places near Calgary? Within 3-4 hours drive? I’ve heard of Pigeon lake yurts but they seem to get booked so fast! 🙁 Any other ones you would suggest? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Summer!

    Yes – we LOVE glamping!

    To be honest, we actually only rented an RV one time before we went ahead and bought one for our family.

    It is a little further than 3-4 hours but, because the spot was so fabulous, I’ll give you the info still…just in case.

    The spot we rented our RV from was Country Camping RV in Salmon Arm ( They were pretty good to deal with and had several options that worked for our own family of 4. They delivered, and set it up, at a near by campground – so everything was ready for us when we arrived!

    We rented a little spot at Sandy Point, which was great! The property is beachfront which was so fun and convenient! Here is the website for you:

    I have heard good things about the Yurts from friends..but you are right…you really have to book those early!

    Good luck with your camping adventures! It is such a fun way to spend summer holidays!
