Six Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Hoboken
Imagine you and your family are seated at a table, waiting for your order, at a restaurant. The diner is packed and your kids, being kids, become impatient and antsy. Your 2 year old starts bawling (okay, screaming), your four year old starts chasing your five year old around the dinner, and your curious 7 year old is rubbing the bald head of the patron sitting by the adjacent table. People are frowning at you and are visibly annoyed.
It can be tough to take young children to a restaurant: some diners do not permit children or may ask a family to leave if the children are being rowdy. So, with this in mind, we complied a list of six best kid friendly restaurants which, based on various customer reviews and diners’ policies, are the most accepting of children, often have children running around (so yours won’t be the only ones!), have a wide range of kids’ meal options, possess strong kid-friendly environments, and are inexpensive. Check it out below.
Johnny Pepperoni tops our list of best Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Hoboken.This Italian diner serves pizzas and Italian entrees with a red and white checked tablecloth theme. One yelp reviewer notes that the restaurant provides kids’ cups with “spill-proof’ lids while another review says that there are appropriate, inexpensive menu options for kids. Overall, the reviews illustrate the diner to have an environment which encompasses both characteristics, “classy” and “playful.” It may remind one of a scene from the children’s Disney movie, “Lady and the Tramp,” when Lady and the Tramp share a spaghetti dish on a red and white checkered tablecloth, served just outside the door of a quaint Italian restaurant.

WICKED WOLF TAVERN
This is a very popular and casual restaurant! I would suggest this place for lunch but you could still do dinner! There is sometimes live music but it is also known for a place to go when a sporting event is on. This is a traditional American cuisine with burgers and pub food. It is also known for its waterfront view! The servers here are very friendly and outgoing and really care about their tables. The prices are very reasonable all around. I do want to note that due to being a sports bar, Sundays are very crowded so plan accordingly! Highchairs are also available upon request!
