Best Family Friendly Restaurant: Dish Society
Little ones can order off the “Childish” menu at this locally-sourced, all-day diner (and they’ll get a free fountain drink if they do). The friendly, casual kitchen makes for a super easy family meal, offering counter service for breakfast, lunch and brunch, and full service for supper and social hour at its multiple locations around town. Kid-approved eats range from popcorn shrimp, buttered noodles, and grilled chicken strips with veggies and queso to breakfast-stuffs like Nutella French toast bites and fried chicken and biscuits. Meanwhile, you can devour BLTs and avocado toasts, seasonal grain bowls and vegetarian tacos, brisket-stuffed sweet potatoes and citrus-glazed salmon, and apps like the fried smoked gouda grit balls that you may need to order two plates of, because we have a feeling the entire family will want in.
