Winner: Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews
Seattle-based chain Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews dropped off the list last year, but now it’s back as the 2019 winner! Some of the reasons ParentMap readers love Red Robin: bottomless fries served with a heavenly array of dipping sauces (try the campfire sauce on your next visit), table games, patient staff and a lively atmosphere where you don’t have to worry about keeping the kids quiet.
Last year’s winner, Elliott Bay Brewing Company offers traditional pub fare (fish and chips, burgers and beer), ample space and a laid-back, if often busy setting at locations in Lake City, West Seattle and Burien.
Endolyne Joe’s in West Seattle satisfies kids with updated American classics while keeping things interesting for more adventurous eaters by taking the menu on a road trip through a different region of the country each quarter.
While the “lounge” side of the Serendipity Cafe & Lounge is strictly for the adults, the café side is a hit with Magnolia families. It offers coffee shop treats and delicious meals that parents can enjoy in peace while the kids hang out in the play area, reading books and playing games.
A perennial favorite with ParentMap readers, Vios Cafe & Marketplace serves traditional Mediterranean fare at its Capitol Hill location. Fans particularly crave the lamb skewers, spanakopita and galaktoboureko (creamy custard in flaky phyllo), and parents rave that the play area keeps kids busy.
