This Sunday, millions of Americans will be settling down in front of their TVs for the most popular sporting event in the country–Superbowl XLVI (That’s 46 for those who are a little rusty on their Roman numerals.) While you probably remember enjoying this iconic game with friends at a local bar, watching the big game with little ones in tow can be tricky, especially if you plan on going out. But, having kids doesn’t mean you have to stay home with take-out buffalo wings to watch the Super Bowl. Check out these Seattle restaurants that cater to families and sports fans.

The RAM at University Village
Families love The RAM (pictured) for family friendly dining anytime of the year, but if you’re looking for somewhere to catch the game with some root beer-aged fans, you’ll especially love it here. There are huge flat-screens along the back of the main dining area that are visible from most tables. The kid’s menu at The RAM is incredible and so is the beer selection for mom and dad. Take the kids outside into University Village during half-time to get their wiggles out – there’s a play ground in the center of the Village.

Magnolia Village Pub
Locals to the Magnolia neighborhood probably won’t appreciate us revealing their favorite spot to watch the game with kids, but it’s too good not to share! There are flat-screens at every table at the MVP, which makes the game easy to watch for the entire family while having some appetizers and lunch. Try to get there early enough to snag one of the booths along the wall. Kids need a break? Take them up the block to the playground at the Magnolia Playfield.

FOX Sports Grill
Located in the heart of downtown, on sixth between Pike and Pine, FOX Sports Grill is a hot spot for after-work happy hour, but is also an excellent place to bring the entire family to watch the game! Next to the lobby, there is a hidden room behind the fountain that is only used for overflow seating. Ask for one of the roomy booths along the wall and you’ll have a perfect view of the big-screens hanging above the fireplace. The kid’s menu at FOX Sports Grill is tasty and the service is fast and accommodating.

Madrona Eatery & Ale House
Let’s face it, anywhere you go out to eat on Super Bowl Sunday is more or less going to be pretty loud. Even at the most calm place, there’s bound to be one cheering fan in the background, yelling on about the game. This can be a bit of an issue when the little ones get all riled up or wiggly. At the Madrona Eatery & Ale House, that’s a non-issue. They’ve got bins full of books, toys, crayons and coloring sheets to keep the kiddos entertained so the parents can watch the game. What’s to eat? The kids will find countless items to choose from on their own menus while the parents enjoy the appetizer specials, and when nature calls, there are diaper changing stations in each bathroom.

Hale’s Ales
It may seem like an odd concept, spending Super Bowl Sunday in an English style pub, but Hale’s Ales Brewery & Pub bring the two together in harmony. Mike Hale has been at it for a while, starting up Hale’s Ales almost 25 years ago. It’s is a down to earth brewery with several locations. Their pub, situated between the Fremont and Ballard districts of Seattle, serves top notch, hand-crafted ales and stellar food. The menu is extensive, so there’s no doubt that even the pickiest of eaters will find something they like.
