Dining With Kids in Branson

Find the perfect place for the whole family to dine in Branson. These four kid-friendly Branson restaurants are sure to please even the pickiest of palates!


There’s a giggle from the backseat, followed by a, “Hey, can we eat there?” You look out the window. There’s a giant meatball with a huge fork – one that’s taller than the adjacent building – stuck in it. Yes, you’re at Pasghetti’s in Branson and yes, your kids are going to love it.

Pasghetti’s, a combination Italian restaurant and attraction, is just one of many places to take your kids for fun meal in Branson, where family comes first and the kids feel like VIPs. Pasghetti’s specializes in Italian cuisine, and its traditional Pasghetti and meatball (which is huge, just not quite as big as the one outside) plate is among its most popular offerings.

Inside, the kids enjoy the game room, themed dining rooms and Ferris wheel. This is a fun family experience the kids won’t soon forget. Oh, and if you’re in the mood to sightsee or take in a show, Pasghetti’s is located next to two popular Branson attractions, the Starlite Theater and the Titanic Museum Attraction.

Papa Grand's Pizza

Of course, if you’re traveling with the kids and you want to find a great way to combine dining with sightseeing or activities, you may need look no further than The Fun Spot at Grand Country.

Fun Spot is home to Papa Grand’s Pizza, where the incredible assortment of pizzas and desserts is matched only by the on-site fun that’s waiting for you: There’s a two-story arcade, laser tag arena, mini-golf and bumper cars. If the kids aren’t psyched about this, you might need to take their temperature.

Cici's Pizza 

CiCi’s Pizza is another Branson favorite where play and pizza make a fun pairing. Along with a massive buffet and a nearly endless supply of pizza, salad and dessert, CiCi’s has a game room to help keep the kids occupied while the grown-ups finish their meals.

Billy Gail's Cafe 

Of course, when it comes to family meals, you can’t skip the most-important meal of the day. That’s where Billy Gail’s Café comes in. Your kids will love the massive pancakes on Billy Gail’s breakfast menu, which is frequently lauded as one of the region’s best. The pancakes – which literally are the size of hubcaps – are awesome by themselves, but kids seem to enjoy the chocolate-chip variety. It’s like having a massive chocolate-chip cookie for breakfast – only better. Hey, it’s vacation, let them go for it.

 These are just a few of the kid-friendly restaurants waiting for you in Branson, where family fun and good food are waiting for you year-round. Find even more great Branson restaurants here, and remind your kids to pack their appetite!
