Best Family-Friendly Restaurant

The Montana Club

Readers' Pick

Few things are more awkward for parents than watching their angelic spawn become “that kid”—the one who saves his or her most epic meltdown for the one night mom and dad need a break and decide to brave a local restaurant. It just plain stinks. But no worries at The Montana Club, a restaurant that takes pride in catering to the entire family and safeguarding against any such outbursts. On our recent visit, the manager took the time to engage the smallest member of our party—he inquired about her coloring skills on the crayon-friendly menu—and the service was NASCAR-level fast. To top things off, the affordable kids menu features a wickedly naughty dessert: The Muddy Cub Surprise, which includes chocolate pudding, Oreo bits, whipped cream and gummy bears for $1.29. The promise of that alone is enough to ensure your wee one behaves. Montana Club: 2620 Brooks; 4561 N. Reserve; 543-3200;
