Let's say you're hangry.  You don’t want to cook.  You have offspring.  Now what?  Not all restaurants cater to the family unit but these just ranked number one for being family-friendly.  See if you agree with these pics in New York, PA, and New Jersey for being the most family-friendly restaurants.

Sometimes it is not the restaurant that makes going out to eat as a family tricky, it is the picky palates, of our kids. The website Love Food scoured the options in every US state to come up with the best family-friendly places to eat, where there is something for everyone.

You know that if you're going to an Italian restaurant in New York, you are going to be hugged with food.  Just like your mom sending you home with leftovers, this lace serves oversized portions so you'll have dinner and lunch for the next day also.  I'm talking about Tony's Di Napoli.  They love the large group and even better if tat large group is family.  Tony's specializes in Southern Neapolitan cuisine and they'll treat your bambinos like they are their own.  There are two locations, one in the Casablanca Hotel off Times Square and the other on the Upper East Side.

This is a no-brainer especially if you are married to a big kid.  They have seven locations in Pennsylvania and they are always expanding.  Dave & Busters has something for everyone and they encourage you to eat and play.  They have new and retro arcade games, big screen TVs and a menu of real meals not just bar food like you may think.  Yes, mom and dad can have a cocktail or beer which is always a nice touch when so many places are BYOB.

I’ll admit this one is not for everyone. If I’m being honest, it is not for me. However, people love it and kids do too.  If you are wanting something really different then this dinner with a show may be a great pick.  This place will bring the jousting, horses, and Medieval energy along with your dinner.  For New Jersey, the number one family-friendly restaurant is Medieval Times.  The four-course feast comes out quickly and is made to be eaten with your hands. 

Here are some more ideas that did not make the list but are tried and true.
