Having a successful dining experience with children in tow depends entirely upon choosing the right destination. You have a great number of options with the many kid friendly restaurants in Wilmington. Balance ambiance, menu options, and a well-timed visit, and you will have your kids on the way to being discerning, cuisine-savvy little foodies.
These establishments are kid-friendly and food-centric, because there is no reason to teach your kids that “restaurant” is the same thing as Chuck e Cheese.
Note we’re skipping the chain restaurants, too. We often find that local places are especially friendly for families. For some mom-inspired tips on dining with kids, read through to the last page.
