Las Vegas Family Friendly Restaurants

Las Vegas, NV 702-368-1077
Who doesn't love a good diner? Not us! Parents should savor in the awesome tastes of the breakfast burrito, because, well, you only live once, and kids are encouraged to delight in the southern scramble. The "Little Less" menu serves up smaller portions of food for those who don't want to eat quite as much, and the "Lil' Cubs" menu offers kids 12 and under some of their favorites, including chocolate chip pancakes, cinnamon apple French toast sticks and spaghetti. Be sure to make an appearance at this authentic diner in the midst of your next journey to Las Vegas.

Just because you have young kids doesn't mean you can't hit a five-star restaurant. Try this light and airy -- and family-friendly -- bistro from Thomas Keller (of French Laundry fame) for its stellar brunch. The basket of warm pastries and beignets that's served as you wait for your French toast with custard and apples or slice of the quiche du jour will ruin your kids for Dunkin Donuts.

Even a lowly burger and fries can be taken to the most decadent levels, as this sleek eatery shows. Here, you can order your burger anyway you want it, from an American classic with bacon and cheese to a truly luxe Kobe beef burger topped with truffles and foie gras -- and top it off with a customized shake (order yours with a little Chambord or Jagermeister). Ask for a booth, which comes with its own TV -- and your kids can chill out with cartoons while you enjoy a little quality time.

You haven't really "done" Vegas unless you've hit one of the massive all-you-can-eat buffets on the Strip. And if you're traveling with kids, the Carnival is the perfect place to eat -- no waiting for meals to prepared, a vast selection (over 300 different dishes, from dim sum to peel-and-eat shrimp) to please even the pickiest palates, and lots of people-watching action to keep the little ones occupied.

Stop into this nice, but just as much casual and family-friendly pizzeria for some grub that will surely warm your bellies. Families are encouraged to split a large pizza with their choice of just about every topping under the sun, or a large calzone. There are a few salads to choose from for those that want to keep it light, and fountain sodas to wash down all that deliciousness. Open Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to midnight.

Treat the family to some of the most delicious pastries and desserts you can find in Vegas at Jean Philippe Patisserie. Located at the Bellagio, the European-styled shop welcomes visitors with its chocolate fountain. Kids' eyes will grow large at the assortment of cookies, chocolates, pastries and cakes. The shop also provides crepes, sandwiches and salads for light meals. Jean Philippe is open daily at 6 a.m., closing weeknights at 11 p.m. and at midnight on weekends.
Las Vegas, NV 702-735-6828
This top-rated Mexican restaurant is not your standard taco joint -- the menu features more authentic Mexican delights such as cactus and multiple variations on the classic mole sauce (including a green mole apparently favored by the Aztecs) in addition to the standard chimichangas and fajitas. Weekend nights may be your best bet, when the mariachi bands will keep your little ones entertained (or at the very least, keep the restaurant noisy enough to cover up any rowdiness).
Las Vegas, NV 702-732-2550
This is the perfect place for families to indulge in an authentic Italian meal as it offers a family style menu that feeds parties of four or more to ultimate satisfaction. Try the bruschetta to start or the steamed mussels, and cannonball into the fettuccine Alfredo for your main course. Kids will love the cheesecake, while parents kick back and relax over a nice glass of red wine. Open daily 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Las Vegas, NV 702-364-9686
This relaxed, family-friendly restaurant serves up some of your favorites at a reasonable price. Kids will love the waffles topped with blueberries or strawberries and whipped cream, while parents savor in the sweet tastes of the eggs benedict washed down with a coffee. Open daily 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Las Vegas, NV 702-891-3000
This casual eatery from chef-to-the-stars Puck is one of the few swank Strip spots to offer a kids menu (stocked with his famous wood-grilled pizza or the standard chicken fingers) -- though some of the "little bites" on the main menu, like steak skewers or chicken noodle soup, might also make a nice children's dinner. Grownups can pick from stellar steaks, gourmet pizzas and an excellent array of pasta dishes.
