Featuring restaurants coast-to-coast across 16 states and Washington, D.C., the list is culled from more than 12 million verified diner reviews of over 30,000 U.S. restaurants. From NINJA in New York to Aquarium in Denver, the Most Kid-Friendly list has plenty of establishments that will be sure to please diners of any age. Florida and New York tie in first for the most honorees (seven), followed by Hawaii with six and California and South Carolina both with four each. Georgia, Illinois and Washington, D.C. follow, all boasting three honorees. Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas are also featured.

"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. "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."

OpenTable's list of the 50 Most Kid-Friendly Restaurants in America for 2019 is generated solely from diner reviews collected between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019. All restaurants with a minimum "overall" rating and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the sum of tags for which "kid-friendly" or "child-friendly" was selected as a special feature.
