Family Friendly Restaurants in Fredericton!

I love it when I find a good restaurant, but I really like it when I find a restaurant where there is an abundance of colouring pages, crayons, kids’ menus and high chairs. To help you in your quest to feed your little ones in a relaxed atmosphere, we’ve compiled a list of some great Family Friendly Restaurants in Fredericton. 

Unplugged – A Board Games Café
418 Queen St | 206-6500 | Menu
What a perfect combination! Grab a table, get a board game and while you wait for your food play a rousing game of “Candy Land” or “Battleship” or whatever strikes your kid’s fancy! Enjoy gourmet grilled cheeses and poutiness, while you choose from a huge selection of family oriented board games. If you want to come in and play while you eat, there is a $5 cover charge ($3 for kids 10 and under), but if you are inclined to come in for the food only, there will be no cover charge.

The Cabin Restaurant
723 Woodstock Road, 459-0094 | Menu
Mini jukeboxes on the tables? Oh yes! This is such a cool little spot, and add to it the great memorabilia (perfect for a game of “I spy”) and the cool little jukeboxes on the table, this place is perfect for the whole family! Oh and of course the homemade milkshakes have always been a huge hit with my kids.

Frank’s Finer Diner
80 Two Nations Crossing, 459-0707 | Menu
I remember taking my kids to this restaurant for the first time.  They were absolutely entranced by the working model train that circled the perimeter of the room! Apart from being known for its “sky high” cakes, Franks’s is a great diner style restaurant, complete with a kid’s play room to entertain the little ones.

Isaacs Way
649 Queen St, 474-7222 | Menu
The first thing that will definitely make an impression on the kids upon entering Isaacs Way is the large wooden carving of “Saucepan Sam”! Kid’s (and adults too!) can browse the paintings from local artists that adorn the walls – they even have artwork from young artists! Kid’s can colour with the colouring and doodle pages and be sure to bid on the many pieces of art; part of the proceeds to towards sponsoring underprivileged children in the arts..how cool is that?

Dip Pool Bar & Grill & [Catch] Urban Grill
Delta Fredericton, 225 Woodstock Road, 451-7925 | Menu
On a nice day, what better way to enjoy your meal than to sit outside by the pool! The Outdoor patio, open until September has a great view of the beautiful Saint John River.  Bring the kids’s swimsuits and go for a “dip” in the pool (note: there is a $10 towel charge to use the pool, but it is free to restaurant goers).  And here’s a deal: If your child is 6 or under, they eat free, and kids 12 and under eat half price off the regular menu! The same holds true for Catch Urban Grill; perfect for the little seafood lover in the family!
