Foodie Parent’s Guide: Where to Eat in Park City with Kids

There’s no shortage of excellent dining in Park City.

Whether you’re looking for tasty mountain comfort food or a fancy 4 course Italian meal, you can find it all in Park City. We sampled a little bit of everything during our 3 days there this past fall and went away impressed by all the various types of cuisine the city had to offer. It’s no doubt that the recent influx of money into Park City has had an effect on today’s restaurant scene.

Park City in general can be quite expensive, and we experienced the sticker shock of a $40 plate of chicken ourselves. But if you are able to bite the bullet and splurge, you’ll enjoy some really fantastic food and service here. And despite the high price points, nearly every restaurant we visited in Park City was very kid-friendly, with high chairs, kids menus, and several even having kids mocktail menus!

Here are a few places worthy of your patronage in Park City!

High West Distillery Saloon

While High West’s actual whiskey distillery is outside of Park City, diners at the saloon can still get a peek in at the barrels and take some whiskey home from the shop. But this place isn’t just about the whiskey. With it’s modern industrial decor, the large dining room is comfortable and spacious. And that’s not to outdo the food, which is pretty magnificent in its own right. The long menu will have you wanting one of each with its dishes that resemble the heart-warming comfort food you’d crave on a chilly winter day. The chicken schnitzel is an absolute must.

Serving: Lunch & Dinner  |  High Chairs: Yes
Kids Menu: Yes  |  Reservations: No

Zoom

With classic American fare, Zoom is a good crowd-pleasing choice. Visitors in the summer will enjoy the outdoor patio overlooking Main Street, while in the winter, the cozy dining room at the end of the ski lift sets the perfect tone after a day on the slopes.

Serving: Dinner Only  |  High Chairs: Yes
Kids Menu: Yes, along with kids’ mocktails
Reservations: Yes

Wahso

Wahso takes Asian Fusion to a new level, blending Asian and American flavors and cooking techniques to create truly unique dishes. Matt went with the pork short rib ramen, which reminded you a little bit of classic pork roast, but distinctly different with the addition of kimchee and ramen noodles. I enjoyed the duck confit Chinese buns (above) and Thai beef salad (a twist on beef carpaccio). As for Evelyn, she stuck to the wonton chips and curry mustard dipping sauce, despite the giant bowl of tater tots the kitchen had whipped up for her.

Serving: Dinner Only  |  High Chairs: Yes
Kids Menu: Yes, along with kids’ mocktails
Reservations: Yes

Squatter’s Roadhouse Pub

This casual eatery was on our short list, but we ended up running out of time and didn’t get in a visit. A good choice for a casual breakfast or lunch, Squatter’s is a more affordable option and super kid-friendly. For the adults, go for one of their award-winning craft beers on tap.

Serving: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner  |  High Chairs: Yes
Kids Menu: No, but menu is very kid-friendly
Reservations: No

Grappa

Grappa is old school American-style Italian to the max. The restaurant sits on the far south end of Main Street at the top of the hill and exudes a sense a warmth the moment you walk in the door. It’s a Park City staple and even though I’ve had better Italian elsewhere, it is (in my opinion) a must for any visitor.

Serving: Dinner Only  |  High Chairs: Yes
Kids Menu: Yes  |  Reservations: Yes

Java Cow

Whether you need a morning pick me up or an afternoon treat, Java Cow is a great stop right smack dab in the middle of Park City’s main street. We stopped for hot chocolates on a chilly day after hitting the shops and Park City Museum.

Serving: Coffee, Pastries, Ice Cream
(also light breakfast, lunch & dinner)
High Chairs: Yes

Chimayo

Our last stop of the trip, we enjoyed one of our favorite meals at Chimayo, a Southwestern grill. The small restaurant’s semi-private booths helped us feel a little more at ease with our noisy dinner-mate. I hate to use the word cozy again, but…dang, everything about Park City is just so cozy! The margaritas and duck enchiladas (a sort of southwestern version of duck cassoulet) weren’t too shabby either.

Serving: Dinner Only  |  High Chairs: Yes
Kids Menu: Yes, along with kids’ mocktails  |  Reservations: Yes

We are so looking forward to visiting again and adding some more favorites to our list. Any recommendations??
