I’ve come to realize Washington has some great restaurants and chefs who know what their doing! Who are not afraid to use flavors and try something bold. Now if you are a parent you are always on the lookout for restaurants that taste good, not fast food but aren’t going to break the bank and most importantly are family friendly! I’m here to let you in on our favorite family friendly restaurants in the Pierce County area, that are out of the norm(not Olive Garden, Red Robin, ect). That adults and kids alike will love! Without further ado, here is our favs!!
♦Casa Mia Lakewood
7304 Lakewood Dr W #1, Lakewood, WA 98499
This is our favorite pizza joint! They have this out of the world – out of the norm pizza called the Potato Gorgonzola and it is so amazing!! Definitely a MUST TRY!! It is a very family friendly place and all the staff members are friendly, the food is also kid approved. The only thing I found with a thumbs down is, the side order of caesar salad is a complete rip off. Other than that 5 stars from us!!
5615 S Tacoma Way, Tacoma, WA 98409
We love this burger joint, great tasting food we’ve tried the burgers, hot dogs, philly-cheese steaks and our favorite MILKSHAKES! All soooo tasty! And not to mention HUGE HUGE proportions – see that hamburger it can feed 4 people! This place can get busy and there really isn’t many tables but don’t let that detere you.
♦The Peanut Sauce
5003 Tacoma Mall Blvd #105, Tacoma, WA 98409
We love this thai place! The food is always amazing, options for kids – kid approved, relaxed atmosphere but still family friendly. If this place isn’t already your favorite place to get Asian food, it will be after you try it!
6430 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA 98406
Go for the family dining time: Monday – Thursday: 5:00 pm to 9:00pm, Friday: 5:00 pm to 10:00pm, Saturday: 11:30 am to 10:00pm, Sunday: 11:30 am to 9:00 pm
This place has very good pizza! But the best part of this the family dining area is perfect for families; they have a couple arcade games, tv for sports games on, AND board games. No stress while eating out with your kids, they don’t need to be stuck in their seat or to be quiet!
2618 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA 98406
One of the BEST and biggest breakfast places in town! With that comes very busy, so be prepared for a little wait if you go on a busy time. The food won’t disappoint! Your kids will love the huge pancakes! Just another thing to keep in mind, parking will be another tricky thing since this place is on 6th ave.
