Percy Street Barbecue

Yum! I recently went to the kid friendly restaurant, Percy Street Barbecue in Philadelphia, and had a lunch to fit a Queen! For a drink, I had sugary and sweet iced tea (which I got a refill on). For an appetizer, I enjoyed scrumptious pulled pork and cheese french fries (WOW!). These are to die for! It sounds like an odd combination at first, but it’s worth trying something new like this! To eat for an entree, I had pulled pork on a potato roll, with a creamy citrusy cole slaw that delighted my taste buds, and baked beans that contained the yummy, smoky black edges of pulled pork. percy sandwichThese were all delicious, AND I took some home as leftovers. Although, I had to save room for minty, and chocolaty grasshopper pie for dessert :) This was my first and very delicious grasshopper pie experience. percy dessertAt Percy Street BBQ, the place is set to look like a cookout! there are various picnic tables and wooden chairs. There is also huge garage doors that open to the street, with outdoor seating as well. Large chalkboards show the Specials at the restaurant. Overall, the environment is very kid friendly.


Hey Kids! There is no kids menu, but I’m sure you’ll find a kid friendly barbecue favorite on Percy Street Barbecue’s menu.


Hey parents! This is a great place to come to eat! Enjoy! My parents said that there are over 200 beers on the menu, and they all come in cans. Might be a good date night destination…


Overall, this place deserves 2 thumbs up out of 2 for their truly kid friendly joint. This was a special stop for my Birthday, and I would certainly stop here again! The kid friendly service was good. The place was packed, so the serviced slowed a little, but depending on when you go, it could be a little quicker.


Be sure to check out their website at


Thanks!


Enjoy!

Cross Keys Diner - 4125 E Swamp Rd, Doylestown, PA 18902

Sorry for the delay, everybody, I’ve been busy with Back-to-School stuff. But, I’m back with kid friendly restaurant reviews! :)


Mmmm! A little bit ago, I visited Cross Keys Diner in Doylestown, PA and had a delicious and gourmet kid-friendly breakfast! Yum! I had a delicious omelet with smoky Gruyere cheese, savory prosciutto, hearty spinach, and mouth-watering Portabella mushrooms. Oh, and don’t forget the fresh sautéed potatoes on the side. cross keysSounds a bit (okay, a lot) gourmet for a child’s palette, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! :) For a drink, I had tart orange juice. YUM! What a perfect way to start the day! A special thing about Cross Keys is that if you order a coffee, It comes in a cool mug that might have Santa or many other common mug designs on yours! The service is totally kid friendly because the waitresses are perky and stay on top of things. The environment is kid friendly because it’s retro but modern at the same time! A fun fact is that when my parents were dating many years ago, this used to be their favorite breakfast spot. I’m glad to see that it is still around, and that I got to experience it.


Hey Kids! There is no kids menu, but I suggest picking a kid friendly dish that also appeals to the senses.


Hey Parents! This place is swell, but always busy. I advise coming here if you are patient for waiting, but otherwise, it’s totally worth the experience.


This place I rate 2 thumbs up out of 2! It’s kid friendly, but keep in mind that it can be very crowded.


They don’t have a website :( but check out their restaurant! You can check out Google Plus for hours: https://plus.google.com/111754827231726021421/about?gl=us&hl=en

Seasons 52 Fresh Grill - 160 N Gulph Road King of Prussia,PA 19406

Delicious Kid Friendly Restaurant found! I recently went to Seasons 52 in King of Prussia, PA and had a delectable meal for my Mom’s birthday. My grandmother came along as well. They are known for seasonally inspired ingredients at their peak of freshness. This day happened to be the first day of their Summer Menu, and the vegetables offered on the dishes are best for the Summer Season, like tomatoes, sweet corn, and snap peas. For an appetizer, I had succulent, to die for crab and cheese stuffed mushrooms. Also, my grandma and I shared a fresh shrimp cocktail, and I tried a slice of the delicious asparagus and gruyere cheese flatbread that my parents had ordered My dinner choice was a  savory shrimp pasta with mixed, seasonal, locally grown vegetables over a bed of pasta. Seasons 52And if you thought things couldn’t get more delicious, we had toothsome, adorable desserts! I ordered two. A Belgian S’more, with a chocolate coated graham cracker and a chocolate dusted marshmallow on top. It had chocolatey pudding as far as the eye can see below the toppings! My second one was a carrot cake dessert. On top was a sweet, candied carrot and below it was layers of delicious carrot cake and sweet cinnamon cream cheese. Oh! they were delicious, to die for, kid friendly desserts! I had water to wash it all down.


Inside, It was classy, but modern, and it had dimmed lights, to give the restaurant a fancy feel. We sat right next to the kitchen! (that’s where a blogger deserves to sit) We could watch them make our delectable dishes from our seats! Our waitress was always on her feet, and always smiling. Talk about kid friendly service! :)


Hey Parents!


This place is fancy, delicious, but pricey. I suggest coming here on special occasions! Anyways, whenever you visit, Bon Appetite!


Hey kids!


There is no kids menu, But I’m sure you’ll find a delicious kid friendly meal on the menu that you’ll enjoy! Make sure that you get dessert!!


Fun Fact: Every dish here is under 500 calories!

The Butcher and Barkeep - 712 Main Street, Harleysville, PA 19438

Delicious! I recently went to The Butcher and Barkeep to find another Kid Friendly Restaurant to share with my readers, and had an unforgettable meal! Sadly, it was a special, so it might not be available when you go. I had a crispy, tempura-battered, soft shell crab with sweet, roasted watermelon, crisp, fresh, pea shoots, and spicy Creole mustard. butcher and barkeep I had never had soft shell crab before, and my parents told me that I must try it! So, I did, and I can tell you, YOU must try it! Oh my gosh, it was the most scrumptious seafood dish I’ve ever had. Soft shell crab is kid friendly, too, because you just plow through the whole thing until not a speck is left! You eat the shell, the legs, (even the claws!). It really is a fun kid friendly experience, eating a soft shell crab, so next time it is available, you must try it! To wash it down, I had tart, toothsome, kid friendly lemonade. For an appetizer, my parents and I all split a plate of garlic parmesan wings. They have a bit of a bite to them, but otherwise, they are kid friendly, messy, and scrumptious. For dessert, I had a brownie sundae. An out of this world family recipe brownie with Freddy Hill Farms Chocolate ice cream. Together, these two beloved desserts make a kid friendly, delicious combo. There are many welcoming decorations in the restaurant, (example: We Can Do It! poster in the ladies room). Our waitress was peppy, and always there when we needed her.


*One special thing to note is that they specialize in always having 5 constant items on the menu. Wings, Flatbread, Mussels, Soup, and a Cheese Plate. These change on a regular basis, and make you keep coming back to try the latest and greatest.


Hey Parents! There is a huge bar here, but the environment is still kid friendly. Consider taking your family here! My parents said that the Small Plates can be fun to share.


Hey Kids! There are delicious choices on the kid’s menu, but I’d suggest getting the chicken and waffles on the adult menu.


I rate this place 2 thumbs up out of 2; the food is spontaneous, the service is kid friendly, and the environment is kid friendly.

Hungry Bear Café - 429 S. Bethlehem Pike Fort Washington, PA 19034

Delicious! I recently went to Hungry Bear Café and had an out-of-this-world burger! I had the Truffle Hamburger- Truffle aoli, wild mushrooms, and tomato. hungry bearThat was one of the BEST burgers from a kid friendly restaurant that I’ve ever had! For example, I’m a HUGE mushroom fan, and this burger satisfied my mushroom craving. Also, the tomatoes compliment the mushrooms, giving the burger a garden-fresh taste. It also comes with fresh hand cut steak fries… DELICIOUS! For a drink, my parents and I all had crisp, refreshing, water. This place is small, with limited seating, but don’t let that confuse you of their awesome burger abilities! There is a big chalkboard here that is often decorated with a chalk bear-their symbol and daily specials. They even decorate their windows! The staff is compassionate and kid friendly.


Hey Parents! What a great joint to come to, you should definitely stop by sometime! It’s a little tricky to get to, and the best reference is that it is on the opposite side of the Fort Washington Train Station Parking Lot.


Hey Kids! There is no kid’s menu here, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy one of the many, savory kid friendly burgers on Hungry Bear Café’s menu.


I give this place 2 thumbs up out of 2, the food is delectable and the staff and atmosphere are kid friendly.

The Washington House Restaurant - 136 N. Main Street, Sellersville PA 18960

Yum! I just went to The Washington House Restaurant for a delicious and filling Kid Friendly dinner for my Dad’s Birthday. I had their pasta special- chicken stuffed with tomatoes and basil. It was served on top of fettuccine with smooth tomato sauce and cheese. The chicken was cooked perfectly, and the basil and tomato inside was delicious and fresh. wash houseThe pasta was savory as well, together they all made a melodious combination! For drink, I had sweet lemonade, my favorite! For dessert, I had their dessert special-  vanilla ice cream with almonds, a homemade chocolate chip cookie with ganache, and edible glass candy. My waitress was very kind and friendly. She did an awesome job and was very attentive. There were many cool, retro pictures hanging all around the restaurant, which made it feel welcoming.


Hey Kids! There is a kid’s menu, but I did not order from it. I would suggest, if you are willing to be adventurous, getting a special or an item off the menu.


Hey Parents! What a wonderful place to come-by yourselves- or taking your kids! The service is kid friendly, the atmosphere is friendly, and the food is delectable!


I give this place two thumbs up out of two- the service is outstanding, the atmosphere is kid friendly, and the food is out of this world.
