When my daughter was a little girl, taking her to the restaurant was a nightmare. I just wanted to feel like an adult and I wanted to act like a little kid in a tantrum. I finally gave up taking her to restaurants until she was big enough to sit without a booster seat. All those delicious restaurant meals that I missed…I wish someone had made this menu for me when my kid was little!
I decided to make this list for parents so they would know they weren’t the only ones who had to sit in horror watching their kids throw silverware into the room, make a big ketchup mess on the table, eat salt under the table, or worse. That’s what kids do and I can laugh about it now. But wouldn’t you like to take your family to a FUN restaurant in Washington state, to take your kids to an atmosphere that kids will enjoy?
Getting your kids to eat out doesn’t have to be a challenge when you go to one of these places, suggested by locals in Washington state!
5 FUN Restaurants In Washington State To Take Your Kids
The old spaghetti factory
152 S Monroe St.
I remember my dad taking me and my little brother to The Old Spaghetti Factory and it was one of my favorite places to eat. I loved the Victorian look of the décor and especially loved having Spumoni ice cream for dessert. The spaghetti wasn’t half bad either, from what I can remember. Spokane location inside an old liquor store. Maybe they have ghosts there, too! Ha, just kidding.

Petty fish sushi
3000 184 SW Street, Suite 950
My kid loves sushi, especially the avocado rolls. BittyFish has that and then some, and I’m talking about a lot of things! Check out their list here to see what I’m talking about. In addition to sushi, BittyFish offers affordable seafood tacos, crunchy rice bowls, desserts, sashimi, you name it! My friend Mark says his little boy loves this place, so I’ll have to take my daughter and check it out next time we’re out near Lynwood!
7 locations: Alki, Bellevue, Greenlake, Kent Station, Lake Union, Southcenter, and Ruston Way (Tacoma)
Just look at some of the photos people have posted on Facebook enjoying dinner at Duke’s Seafood and you’ll see plenty of families in the mix. Yes, this includes younger children as well. My kid doesn’t really like seafood, but Duke’s has chicken strips, french fries and sorbet on their great kids menu, so there’s something at Duke that will please both of our plates!

305 N Grand Ave
A place where kids can run and play while adults sit and eat (and drink)? Yes, please register us! There is an arcade area as well as a pool table and two levels of bars and restaurant seating. Get there on the right night and hear live music, watch servers play Waiter Games, and maybe even a good round of Bingo! It has been described as an “ice cream parlour, café and children’s play area”. –

Latitude Kitchen Bar
1065 E Sunset D
Baby food comes in a pirate ship! Arrrr, are you kidding me? This looks cool enough to go on the list! There’s a kids’ menu for breakfast and lunch for just $6.90 each, plus kids eat free on Sundays with the purchase of a regular-priced meal for $15 or more! Basically, for every fifteen dollars you spend on food at Latitude, a child gets food for free. It reminds me of that little girl in the old Christmas movie who says, “Every time the bell rings, the angel gets his wings!”
