Now that summer is over, school is back in session. Trying to get back on a schedule can be tough, and on those nights you’re just not up to cooking, why not mix it up and check out some of the best family friendly restaurants in the Denver area?
Note: All these places Emily has taken her 1 year old daughter, and can vouch that not only are ALL these places kid friendly, but her kid wasn’t the only one there!

Casa Bonita

6715 W Colfax Ave, Lakewood, 80214

You can’t have a restaurant list that’s kid friendly without the famous Casa Bonita! The divers alone make the experience one that kiddos love. The 30 foot tall waterfall was created to look like the cliffs in Mexico – the pool is over 13 feet deep. It can seat over 1000 people, so you’ll always make a friend eating alongside lots of families.

Punchbowl Social

65 Broadway, Denver, 80203

While Punchbowl Social is a hip place for adults to grab a drink, the arcade games and bowling alley are perfect for families looking to have a great night. The bold décor and neon lights make for a fun environment for kids. Big plus, they cater to large groups of people!


523 E 17th Ave, Denver, 80203

One of a few locations, Steubens is such a cute vibe in the heart of Denver. The upscale retro diner has some of the best chicken and waffles around. The eats and cocktails are delicious, and the kids have tons of fun options to eat.

Dad & Dudes

6730 S Cornerstar Way D, Aurora, 80016

This gem is a family owned place with great pizzas and an awesome selection of local and housemade beers. The gluten free pizza crust tastes amazing, and they have tons of options for pizza toppings. The servers are extremely knowledgeable about the beers and pizza parings. The family vibe is apparent, it’s in the heart of a shopping center in South Denver.


3200 N Pecos St, Denver, 80211

Such an iconic place in Denver, with awesome views! I was hesitant to bring my baby there, but it was a hit. There are tons of different bites, so no matter what you want to eat there’s something for everyone. Located in LoHi, you can feel the energy of Denver and enjoy the beautiful weather. Great for weekend nights before it gets too cold!

Chop Shop

3150 S Broadway, Englewood, 80113

This will be your new favorite spot – at Chop Shop, you order at the counter and find a table while you wait for your healthy salads and other fresh food options. It’s truly the best thing for parents – it’s QUICK! Great for a weeknight when you are looking for a healthy option for your family.

YaYas Euro Bistro

8310 E Belleview Ave, Greenwood Village, 80111

Located in the heart of the DTC, YaYas is an instant family favorite. They have a full menu with salads, pastas and pizzas, and their Happy Hour is extremely affordable! If you get lucky, you might get a spot on the patio and overhear the live music from the Crescent Amphitheatre.

No matter where you eat, there’s no better time to be living in Denver. Take advantage of these awesome eats next time you’re in the neighborhood!
