Dinner out with kids! What’s the first thing that comes to mind? Little diners excusing themselves right when you start your meal? Asking for the check while it’s still light out? Well, we’ve rounded up 11 theatrical dining destinations that will keep the kids entertained well past dessert and have you feeling like a kid again. Scroll through the slideshow and work up an appetite for fun!

Max Brenner – Boston, Ma

And for dessert, do we have you at “chocolate pizza”? We should think so! This sweet Back Bay spot (Max Brenner also has Philadelphia and New York locales) gives you a chance to top your chocolate pie with hazelnut bits, melted peanut butter, or toasted marshmallows. YUM. Kid-approved delights also include an adorable Alice in Wonderland-inspired “drink me” milkshake and a chocolate fondue tower. Sip, Dip, Hooray!
