As a parent I truly understand how expensive eating out can get. This list was created to help parents find deals that make eating out more affordable and fun. The following restaurants offer kids nights, free meals or discounted prices for the kids! Keep in mind almost all of these restaurants require an adult entrée purchase. Promotions are subject to change! I have called each of these locations to verify 2018 participation. I will do my best to continue updating this as the year progresses. Restaurant events and kids night activities are also kept on the CALENDAR LINK Thank you for following The Playful Parent!
