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!

Urban Putt – San Francisco, CA 

Miniature golf in the Mission? Check! Practice your putt after some deep-dish pizza and bar bites (we’re talking Corn Dogs, Cheesy Tots, Grass-fed Beef Sliders) that would keep any kid happy—and some of which are fairway friendly! Mini-golf hours run seven days a week and kids play before 8 p.m. so lunch or early dinner crowds welcome a family scene (Putters under five golf for free, by the way, while it’s $8 for ages 6-12.). All 14 holes are handmade and reflective of San Francisco—tour the whole city!
