Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Stamford

3 restaurants that are perfect for family dinners


Feel like going out to eat tonight but aren’t sure which restaurants are kids-tested parents approved? Well you’re in luck because we’ve got the top kid-friendly restaurants in town. After all, a family that eats together stays together, right?

Coalhouse Pizza

What’s better than eating pizza? Well, making it of course. Every Sunday at Coalhouse Pizza owner Gerard Robertson invites kids of all ages and parents to join him in learning how to make pizza using the restaurant’s enormous coal-fired oven. Robertson teaches kids how to do everything from working the dough to ladling the sauce to spreading the cheese. But this isn’t your typical “cooking class” as kids are encouraged to be creative and of course make a mess. But don’t worry; you don’t have to clean up. 

If the delicious pizza isn’t enough to keep you coming back for more, the atmosphere sure will. Robertson’s love of Jazz and Blues music can be seen and heard throughout the whole restaurant. So next time it’s a rainy day or you just don’t feel like cooking hop on over to Coalhouse Pizza and have a ball (no pun intended).

85 High Rd. Road; 203- 977-7700

Lucky’s Classic Burger and Malt Shop

Give your kids a taste of what a real diner was like back when you were a kid at Lucky’s Classic Burger and Malt Shop. When you step inside the retro-themed joint you will instantly be transported back to a time when poodle skirts were in and milkshakes were a dime and a nickel.

The menu is filled with kid favorites like grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken tenders, mac and cheese and of course their famous Lucky burger. And parents don’t worry there is a variety of options for you too.

You can choose to enjoy your delicious meal inside, where the walls are fashioned with vintage black and white photos reminiscent of the post World War II era, or in the outside seating area.

209 Bedford Street; 203-978-0268

City Limits Diner

There’s a reason why City Limits Diner was voted Best Diner by our readers in this year’s “Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut” and continues to rein supreme beating out hundreds of diners year in and year out.

But this isn’t your typical diner. This part diner, part grill house, part bakery is serving up everything from Maryland lump crab cakes to lobster Benedicts to free-range chicken. And don’t forget about its specialty cakes and desserts.

Whether it’s the friendly atmosphere or down-home good cooking, City Limits is the perfect place for a family meal.
