Kids’ Favorite Foods Are At Broadway At The Beach

Posted in Dining

Dining out with kids doesn't have to be a challenge. Just like adults, kids want to eat at places where they feel welcome and comfortable. From time to time, they enjoy servers who give them a little special attention and make them feel as important as the adults. Seeing their favorite foods on a menu and having several options makes them feel free and relaxed. If there's some kid-centric entertainment or a place to blow off some steam, that's icing on the cake for both the kids and mom and dad.

But where can you find all that and still enjoy adult food favorites with prices that won't break the bank?

Broadway's restaurants put the welcome mat out for you and your kids. Menus featuring great food and ample servings are supplemented by kid's menus and special pricing for youngster's portions. Some even let kids eat free.

Special favorites like burgers and chicken tenders are always on the kid's menus at Landry's Seafood, Liberty Brewery & Grill, and Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville.

Have you ever met a child who didn't like spaghetti? There's lots of that and more Italian favorites at Capriz Italian Feast. Parents can enjoy a relaxing meal while teenagers stuff themselves at a buffet that has everything from a soup and salad bar to pizza and several different Italian entrees. The littlest kids get to eat whatever they want — and the food is free for those six and under.

Both the food and energy of Johnny Rockets make it an ideal place to take the kids. Your family will want to return again and again to this cozy restaurant with the diner motif, singing and dancing waitstaff, and great burgers, fries, and shakes.

Over at Joe's Crab Shack you'll find a kid's menu with seafaring twists. They'll love dishes and drinks with names like Rockin' Popcorn Shrimp, Captain's Catch, and Beach Buddie beverages like the Shark Nibble. When the weather's nice, the kids can even work off some energy at the on-site playground.

There's no better feeling that finding places where your kids actually love to eat. Discover the fun and kid-friendly restaurants at Broadway at the Beach.

Did You Know? Ten Interesting Facts About Broadway At The Beach

We get questions about Broadway at the Beach every day. Visitors stop by Guest Services or drop us a post on our Facebook page wondering about all sorts of things. Most folks are intrigued by the sites, the sounds and the size of Broadway. We're asked about our fireworks, traveling performers and even the fish in our lake. So we thought we'd share ten interesting facts about Broadway that answer many of the questions we're asked. And, if you have more, head over to our Facebook page and ask away!

1. Broadway at the Beach's 14 million visitors a year literally come from all over America and beyond. The top 5 states that send us visitors are North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

2. Our 75 in-line shops and 30 kiosks offer everything from trendy sandals and delicious fudge, to beautiful jewelry and apparel. We even have a magic shop called Broadway Magic.

3. Sixteen nightclubs provide a wide variety of entertainment from comedians performing at the Carolina Comedy Club to live bands playing all kinds of music at several clubs in Celebrity Square and nearby restaurants.

4. Twenty-six attractions fill up your senses at Broadway. Tribute artists give high energy performances at Legends In Concert and an awesome magic show is currently playing at The Palace. Ripley's Aquarium lets you walk through a tunnel with sharks swimming overhead. You can even get your photo taken with a life-like wax model of your favorite star at our new Hollywood Wax Museum.

5. There are more than 20 amusement rides in 3 different parks around Broadway. From kiddie rides to thrill rides, we've got it. It's also an adventure to soar over Lake Broadway on a zipline or have some fun just riding on the lake in a jet boat, paddle boat or water rollerz.

6. Events are a regular part of the Broadway experience. Broadway at the Beach hosts an average of 25 events and/or festivals annually including several 5K's, car shows and charitable walks. And our Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration is one of the most popular events in the area as we illuminate our 52 foot tall tree with 141,000 lights as performers bring in the holiday season.

7. Just how big is Lake Broadway? Our 23-acre lake is 100 feet across and 1 mile in length. Depths range from 3 to 15 feet.

8. How many fish are in our lake? We've stopped counting! We originally stocked the lake with about 29,000 fish including Bream, Catfish, Hybrid Bass, Japanese Carp and Israeli Carp when we opened in 1995. A quick look around and you'll see that we have a pretty healthy (and growing) aquatic population that now also includes wildlife such as seagulls, turtles, ducks and more.

9. Our fish consume approximately 34,000 ponds of fish food every year, thanks to our many visitors who stop on the bridges at our feeders and toss in the food that draws the fish up to the surface for chow.

10. Our most popular regular events are our fireworks shows held Tuesdays and Fridays at 10 p.m. during the summer as well as several seasonal shows throughout the remainder of the year. Weather permitting, we'll present 30 free fireworks shows this year. And by seasons end, we will have exploded nearly 100,000 shots over Broadway.

Now that you have the facts, come out and enjoy!
