In some areas, it’s tough to find restaurants that are welcoming to children but also promise a fun night out for their parents and adult friends. In The Woodlands, this is happily not an issue! The vibrant restaurant scene in this lively community includes restaurants that welcome children and have a great family atmosphere.


Here are a few top choice restaurants for families and kids in The Woodlands:


The Olive Oil Restaurant

This local, family owned Greek restaurant is lively, and fun! On Friday and Saturday nights, Olive Oil Restaurant has live Greek music, belly dancing performers, and a dance floor all ages will love. The delicious food includes a children’s menu, and your family can also order the breaking plate special, where staff breaks plates and yells “Opa!” The restaurant is loud, so a crying or fussy child won’t bother other diners.


Skeeter’s Mesquite Grill

This American and Tex-Mex casual eatery is perfect for entertaining the kids while their parents relax. A Kids Korner area of the restaurant features arcade games and activities, making this restaurant a huge hit for active, slightly older kids, and the menu includes a children’s menu. Adults will enjoy the reasonably priced, fresh food and watching the game on one of several TVs.


Black Walnut Cafe

Casual counter service, an extensive menu that will please all diets and appetites, and a kid’s menu make this a favorite for families, especially for brunch, breakfast, and lunch. The sitting areas has booths for big parties, perfect if you have a large family or big group with kids. A relaxed, diner style decor and atmosphere means slightly fussy young or fidgety older kids won’t be a problem.


Crisp Woodlands

Crisp is a great option for families looking for a night out at a trendy restaurant and want to bring the kids along. Adults will love the extensive array of sophisticated food, wine, and drink options, while kids will be pleased with the unique, delicious Crisp Critters children’s menu.
