Black Bear Diner
•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.
•Las Vegas, NV •702-414-6200
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.
•Las Vegas, NV •702-632-9364
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.
Carnival World Buffet
•Las Vegas, NV •702-777-7777
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.
Crush eat, drink, love
•Las Vegas, NV •702-891-3222
Although the restaurant is quite pricey for its small plates, the food is fabulous. The restaurant is intimate and quite dark during its dinner hours. If taking the kids, go on the weekends when it is open for lunch. Kids who are picky will like the wood-fired flatbread pizzas
Grimaldi's Pizzeria - Green Valley
•Las Vegas, NV •
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.
HEXX kitchen, bar, chocolate
•Las Vegas, NV •702-331-5100
With arguably one of the best locations for outdoor dining on the Las Vegas Strip, HEXX features a large patio raised just above the street but perfectly suited for people watching and sun. Its breakfast is a real treat, with stacks of chocolate pancakes with caramel syrup, powdered sugar and bananas, as well as spicy, with the Chilaquiles breakfast nachos practically irresistible. The restaurant is open through dinner with a twist on American fare and reasonable prices, but be sure to leave room for the desserts in the restaurant or its neighboring chocolate shoppe.
•Las Vegas, NV •702-405-9393
This hip new restaurant near downtown's Freemont Street is a Japanese Ramen house. Build-your-own ramen bowls, small plates, hand rolls and rice bowls are low-priced but delicious, and families can enjoy a fabulous Las Vegas meal without the Las Vegas prices. Indoor and outdoor seating is available.
Jean Philippe Patisserie
•Las Vegas, NV •888-987-6667
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 •702-894-7111
For reasonably priced American food with a tropical twist, Kahunaville is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu features Hawaiian barbeque, salads, seafood and steaks in a casual atmosphere featuring a DJ pumping out music. Thursday to Monday nights, the restaurant features an Island Heat LuWow Dinner Show, bringing Polynesian dance and tribal drums to Las Vegas. Two dinner shows are offered, at 6 and 8 p.m., lasting 70 minutes.
La Cave Wine & Food Hideaway
•Las Vegas, NV •702-967-4111
A lovely restaurant with indoor or outdoor seating overlooking the Wynn's landscaped lagoons, La Cave is open daily, serving lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday, and a brunch or dinner option on Sunday. The restaurant serves small plates to be shared and that are better suited for kids who aren't seeking mac-n-cheese or pizza, although the restaurant does offer flatbreads, with a bit of a twist of flavors.
•Las Vegas, NV •702-463-9900
Nestled on a side street, just steps from the lively Freemont Street area, is a friendly, communal dining style Mexican restaurant. Open for lunch or dinner, the menu is authentically Mexican with tasty tacos, bursting burritos and enticing enchiladas. Mom and dad may also want to sample the restaurant's margaritas, as the bar has an extensive collection of tequilas.
•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.
Nora’s Italian Cuisine
•Las Vegas, NV •702-365-6713
Families who love Italian food should definitely check out Nora's Italian Cuisine next time they find themselves in Las Vegas. Menu items include pasta, pizza and salads. Kids will certainly inhale the Parmigiana pizza, while parents give the pork tenderloin a taste or the Crazy Alfredo. Open Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday, 11 a.m. to midnight, Saturday, 4 p.m. to midnight, and Sunday, 4 to 10 p.m.
•Las Vegas, NV •702-384-6868
There is a little something for everyone at Omelet House. Kids are sure to devour the stuffed French toast or the biscuits and homemade sausage gravy, while parents delight in the American Delight hamburger or the BLT. Other menu items include salads and homemade soups. Open daily, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Otto Enoteca Pizzeria
•Las Vegas, NV •702-677-3390
Sit outside to enjoy the sun or evening lights or Las Vegas, or indoors with a view of the Venetian's St. Mark's Square, and then order pizza, as Otto Enoteca serves up a perfect Italian-style pizza. Thin, wood-fired pizzas, pastas, seafood, meats, salads and small plates are all reminiscent of Italy, but leave room for the fresh gelato, made in-house daily.
The Egg & I
•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.
The Peppermill Restaurant & Fireside Lounge
•Las Vegas, NV •702-735-7635

Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill
•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.
