With school starting up again and family time getting scarcer and more precious, OpenTable released a list of the country’s 50 most kid-friendly restaurants. Four New Jersey restaurants made the cut.
The family-friendly environments in Maggiano’s in Cherry Hill, Maggiano’s in Bridgewater, Carmine’s in Atlantic City, and Sugar Factory in Atlantic City were each included on the list.
“When you’re dining out with kids, you want to find a restaurant that has something for everyone—a menu that appeals to younger diners, great cocktail options for the adults and, of course, the ambiance to match,” said Caroline Potter, chief dining officer at OpenTable, in a statement. “Whether you’re a family of foodies celebrating something special or you’re avoiding doing dishes on a weeknight, these restaurants have a fun family-friendly vibe and fare that’ll hit the spot.”
Restaurants from 16 states and Washington, D.C. had a spots on the list, based on reviews from more than 30,000 restaurants nationwide collected between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019. Restaurants needed a minimum overall rating and number of reviews to be included for consideration. They were then scored and sorted based on the number of reviews that tagged their review “kid-friendly” or “child-friendly.”
