Dining out with your entire brood can be an exercise in extreme patience. Thank goodness for smartphones and tablets to keep tots with growling tummies busy. However, if you’re looking to up the dining out fun factor, these six Seattle-area establishments will provide good eats with a side of entertainment for the kiddies.

Anthony’s Beach Cafe

Gorgeous views of the sound and delicious Northwest seafood are enough to entice anyone to the Anthony’s Beach Café in Edmonds. The kids may not fully appreciate the water views on a sunny, warm day, but they will enjoy the giant sandy play area adjacent to the outdoor patio. You can linger a little longer over your food and beverages while your kids get creative and build their masterpieces in the sand. Petite pescatarians will also enjoy fish ‘n chips, prawns ‘n chips or good ‘ol traditional mac ‘n cheese. Finish off the meal with a kid-sized hot fudge sundae and the minis will be begging to come back!
