Where Kids Can Eat Free South of Boston

Where Kids Can Eat Free South of Boston

I don’t know about you, but there are definitley sometimes in which I don’t feel like cooking, but don’t want to pay a fortune for the four of us to go out to eat. I knew there were some places around where kids could eat free down here on the south shore, but wasn’t sure which places had offers. I decided to make a list of all of the places I could find so that I could refer back to it when I needed it. If you live south of Boston, I hope you find this helpful.

  1. Alissa Apel

    How fun! We have some restaurants here to where kids can eat free. The trouble is, is that Mica eats as much as I do. Isaak still eats kid dishes though.

  2. Ashley Gill

    This list is seriously awesome! With 2 children, my husband and I find all the delicious places where kids can eat free, so this list will make it all a little easier on me! Thank you!

  3. Ellie

    Friendlys ( I know!) kids eat free Monday after a Patriots win. The one in Norwood is really pretty good.

  4. maria s.

    I wish we had this many places near us that let kids eat free! There are so many on this list.

  5. toughcookiemommy

    I would love to head to Boston to sample the cuisine. I have heard great things about the food there.

  6. Theresa

    You have a lot of places that kids can dine free! We only have a few and they are places the girls aren’t too fond of. *sigh*

  7. Sarah Bailey

    What a fantastic list, it is amazing the amount of places that offer a kids meal for free! x

  8. Amber NElson

    I plan on going to Boston one day. This is a great list to have.

  9. Joely Smith

    I had NO idea there were so many places where kids can eat free! I think my kids were no longer kids by the time places started offering this. You have provided an amazing list here – very helpful to those with kids.

  10. MJ. L

    What a great list of places kids can eat free! More places should do this since going out to eat gets so expensive sometimes!!

  11. moesly15

    This is a great list of places to eat free if you live south of the city. Best list I’ve ever seen. Can you do one for the northerners?

  12. Liz Mays

    I can’t believe how many options there are. Boston is where to be with kids!

  13. jmanandmillerbug

    Wow – this is a great list! I don’t know of many places where I live that let kids eat free! I wish we had more places around that did this.

  14. musingmainiac

    What a great list! I should do one for up here in Maine. I wish we had some of your cool restaurants here!

  15. Jeanette

    WOW! This is a great list! I don’t live there I will have to see if some of these places (or others) do the same thing here!

  16. JessicaACassidy (@wifetoalineman)

    Wow! This will help parents save money. I should check our restaurants here in Buffao if they have those kind of freebies.

  17. Jennifer

    This is so great for any parents in that area. I have kids with friends, and they’re always looking for places to offer freebies to kids.

  18. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    That is so great! I need to find a list like this for my area. This is going to be really useful for a lot of people.

  19. aimee (@HouseofFaucis)

    I always seek out places where kids can eat free or at a discounted price. My kids are such small eaters that I hate to waste money and food.

  20. Pam

    We were the same way. Our kids hated leftovers, too, so taking extra home just meant that I had to eat it.

  21. Michelle Liew

    This is a boon for parents! Great and helpful info!

  22. Jessica Beal Harlow

    This is a great list to have handy! There are definitely nights that this Mom just needs a night off from cooking and finding a kid-friendly restaurant that has free kid’s meals is a big deal. It can cost us big money for a dinner out with a family of 6 so a free meal is always welcome!

  23. crystal

    I could use a night off now and then. Now there’s no reason not to get out once in a while.

  24. Shaylee

    Wow what a great list! I had no idea so many places offered free childrens meals!

  25. Jen V

    I have never been to Boston, but will have to keep these restaurants in mind if we do ever travel there. We have a family of 6 so eating out is expensive. I love it when restaurants offer free meals to kids.

  26. Megan Elford

    Oh my goodness, this is an awesome list! We only have one more child that’s still under 12, but do we ever appreciate the free meal for her when we can get it. It makes such a big difference, especially when you’re on a budget!

  27. Annie {Stowed Stuff}

    What an amazing list! I love SKY in Norwood too! I’m totally pinning this! Thanks!

  28. Danielle

    I love when restaurants to the “kids eat free” thing. My son hardly ever eats when we’re at a restaurant, but we still order something for him just in case. With the “kids eat free” specials I don’t have to worry about wasting any money on food he may not eat!

  29. Lisa Nolan

    This is quite a list! I wish someone would make one for our county! Great job! Kids eating free is at the top of my list!

  30. Elizabeth @ Being MVP

    Wow what a great list of restaurants! I really want to visit Boston some day.

  31. Jason Young

    What an awesome list. I’ll have to bookmark this for when i bring to kids to Boston.

  32. sicorra

    Love the list of places for kids to eat for free. It is always nice for families to be able to find ways to save money while still being able to take their family out for meals. And many times kids eat so little, that it feels like it doesn’t make sense to pay for a full meal for them anyways.

  33. sippycupmom

    What a great resource! I’m always looking for places where kids eat free.

  34. Pam

    I love finding restaurants where kids eat free. It really helps when you just don’t want to cook.

  35. rachellemama

    This is a great list! Gotta love finding places the kiddos can eat free!

  36. bismah2010

    This is a really awesome list with so much assortment of foods! I would never have thought that there were so many places that offered the kids eat free option.

  37. Amy Desrosiers

    What an amazing list that actually benefits me! I just wish there were some for Fridays because that is when I would need it the most.

  38. Kristen from The Road to Domestication

    WOW! I had no idea that so many places would allow kiddos to eat free! This is amazing!

  39. Erin (@SugarCrumbs)

    I love that there are still restaurants that let kids eat free! Such an awesome thing!

  40. tamaralikecamera

    GREAT list! We’re not South of Boston but we live in MA and do pass through quite a bit through the city or Cape Cod or just for exploring.

  41. Jennifer

    This is a great resource! I love when restaurants do kids eat free nights. I never used to think about or plan around kids eat free nights, but now that I have 3 kids, it’s totally on my radar. Thanks for taking the time to put this list together.

  42. Jeanine

    Wow! This is an amazing list! I hope to visit down there some day so this will be great to know. Such a great list you’ve compiled… theres a lot!

  43. Shann Eva

    This is awesome . I’ll have to check for some of these in my area.

  44. Liz Mays

    Oh my gosh, Dickey’s has the discount? I love that place so much! Their food is awesome!

  45. twolittlecavaliers

    What a fantastic list! I bet that families with kids are so appreciative of restaurants that offer kids eat free. It allows families to go out as a family and try new things without breaking the bank. Plus it gives mom or dad a night off from the kitchen!

  46. Terri Ramsey Beavers

    I didn’t know there were so many places kids could eat free. We only had one restaurant in our parts where they could but it closed down and now there’s no where where they can eat free.

  47. lisamc7

    This is a great list! I love that you laid it out by day.

  48. Heather

    Wow there are lots of great deals in Boston. Love that.

  49. Brett Martin

    What a great list! I wish I was closer to Boston so I could take advantage of these great deals.

  50. Michelle

    This is a great resource for families. I sure wish I’d thought of looking for places that weren’t going to break the bank when my daughter was young and I was too exhausted to cook a nice dinner.

  51. Rosey

    This is an extensive list. You were nice to put it together, and you’re lucky to have so many options!

  52. socialite123l

    Its great of all these place to be offering free dining for Kids. I like that families will get the chance to have a great meal together without breaking the bank

    What a list. I know of a few restaurants here where the kids could also eat for free. I have to check all of them and make a list, too.

  60. Chubskulit Rose

    Wow that’s a lot! Over here in my neck of the woods, only Ponderosa offer a free meal for kids on certain time of day.

  61. Amber Edwards

    I seriously love when so many places offer “kids eat free” options! We took advantage of the IHOp kids eat free promo a lot this summer. It’s always a great deal!

  62. lisa

    It’s really cool that there are places near you where kids eat for free every night of the week. I’m not sure if there are any places near me that do this.

  63. espacularaiesa1

    That is a spectacular list. I am impressed with how many offer meals for kids. I think that makes the choice to eat out easier.

  64. leechrista

    That is one extensive list you’ve put together of restaurants where kids eat free in Boston. We had a Tony Keith’s here in Orlando for about 2 months and it shut down. That was odd.

  65. Courtney

    That’s an incredible list! So awesome. I had no idea so many places did this.

  66. Valerie Remy-Milora (@vremilora)

    Wow that is a pretty comprehensive list of options! Boston definitely is kid friendly and that also means mommy friendly since mommy gets a break!

  79. Allison

    Wow! What an awesome list you put together! Now wanna create one for NYC? I WISH there were this many place nearby me that did free stuff for kids meals, my son was just telling me that they do this at IHOP though.
