america's greatest eateries for family travel

Going out for a meal as a family with young children can be stressful and sometimes parents avoid taking their children out to eat, in order to avoid facing any embarrassment. However, it can be an enjoyable experience, especially when it is an eatery which is family-friendly, and is known for being different to accommodate children of all ages. Therefore, in addition to you applying for an Esta before you travel to America, it may be useful to take a look at these eateries we have found for you, so you can add them into your itinerary, and enjoy meal times, instead of dreading them. 

TGI Friday’s

This family restaurant is now very well-known in the UK for its American-style food and interior, which of course is amplified in the USA. With a wide variety of food to choose from for all the family, including burgers, nachos and steaks, you can rest assured that there will be something for you and your children to enjoy here. Furthermore, you can enjoy alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails, whilst your children indulge in one of the very many milkshakes available!

The Rainforest Café

Once again, this eatery is a popular choice in London as well as their 19 US locations, which is fun for all the family. Choose your meal from the large choice on both the regular menu and children’s menu, and enjoy the delicious food, whilst surrounded by a rainforest, which is emphasised through the lighting and sound effects in the restaurant. This outstanding restaurant has themed food, so you and your family can really feel as if you are in a rainforest, while you enjoy your dinner.

Planet Hollywood

If you are visiting Orlando, Los Angeles, Las Vegas or New York, then dine with your children amongst the stars, and give your children a dining experience they will never forget. Not only is the food delicious, but it is exciting, which will engage your children. This restaurant really will provide you with a fun evening with your family.

Hard Rock Café

This eatery can be found all around the world, but originated from the USA, with an authentic American cuisine being at the heart of the café. From hamburgers to salmon to macaroni and cheese, you will definitely be full when you leave this fantastic café. 

Red Robin

If you love burgers and you love lots of food, then we recommend that you eat at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brew. You will love the flavours that melt in your mouth from the unique burgers that are served here.

Red Lobster

For something a little different, try Red Lobster if, of course, you love fish! From red lobster to shrimp to crab and many other types of fish, you will be in heaven at this eatery. A varied dessert menu also means that you can complete your meal with a sweet treat. What’s more, there is a separate kids menu, so your children can enjoy the fish too, but in a smaller portion. If they are not a fan of fish, then they can enjoy macaroni and cheese or grilled chicken as an alternative.

Hopefully, these brief insights into some popular eateries in America to take your children to, will allow you to plan your holiday knowing that there will be suitable restaurants nearby for you to eat at as a family.
