Top 50 Family-Friendly Restaurants in the DMV

We’re excited to announce our list of Yelp’s Top 50 Family-Friendly Restaurants in the DMV for 2019!

We’ve scoured the Metropolitan DC area to find the top-rated local spots to dine with kiddos in tow. From restaurants where the menu options are plentiful, to spots with play areas just for the littles, this list has something for everyone with a tiny one. Scroll on if you’ve been feeling like you’re dragging the fam out to the same ol’ stand-bys week after week — we hope Yelp can help you break out of your restaurant rut! Feel like your favorite spot is missing? Write them a review on Yelp to help them earn a spot on the list next year!

Bonus! We’ve made it easy for you to keep these spots handy with our specialized Bookmark Collection where you can access this anytime with a few taps into the Yelp app. To do so, open this link on mobile (make sure to have the free Yelp app downloaded!) and hit ‘follow’ once you’ve opened it in the app. Follow us on Instagram, @YelpNoVA, as we showcase local businesses you’ll want to know about throughout the year.
