It’s no secret that there are a lot of places to get good food in Park City, it’s a little harder to tell which ones are kid-friendly. Park City is a pretty casual town, but you’ll find a mix of casual to upscale dining. If your kids are anything like mine, pizza and macaroni and cheese are the only safe bets, but I also know there are kids that are a lot more adventurous eaters than my 2-year-old.
Since pizza is always a safe bet, I’m going to start with that:
Red Banjo Pizza is Park City’s oldest restaurant. It opened in 1962 and is still running strong. They have pizza and sandwiches sure to fill you up. They also have pizza by the slice lunch specials and delivery if you are staying in town.
Davanza’s is a local favorite. They have a mix of pizza, burgers, tacos, and fried food that will hit the spot after a hard day of skiing.
Vinto is on lower Main Street and my final pizza recommendation. It’s a little more upscale than the other two but still very casual. They offer a variety of wood-fired pizza, pasta, paninis, and salads….and a good selection of gelato to finish off your meal.
Now onto everything that isn’t pizza:
The Bridge Café and Grill is right next to Town Lift so a great place to start your day and grab breakfast or lunch. Traditional breakfast is served all day, and then for lunch, they have soup, salads, sandwiches, and burgers with added Brazilian flair.
Back Door Delicatessen is right on the corner of Swede Alley and Heber Avenue near the 4-way stop. They’re only open for lunch but worth a mid-day stop for great sandwiches that everyone will love.
The Eating Establishment is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s a casual atmosphere with a wide variety of food that includes soup, salads, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, and seafood, so there is sure to be something for everyone.
Wasatch Brew Pub is the first brewpub to open in the state of Utah. And, it’s also very kid friendly. With traditional pub fare, you’ll all enjoy the night out for dinner.
Bandits’ Grill & Bar meets all of your BBQ needs. Good sandwiches and BBQ plates. And I have to say that I’m a big fan of their fried pickles, zucchini, and onion rings. Editors Note: Bandits' has recently reopened as Altitude on Main.
High West Distillery makes some of the best whiskey around and also makes some of the best food in town. It is our go-to when we are eating in town; I never get sick of it. Their macaroni and cheese is so good; it’s one of those kids’ meals that I am happy to pick at after I finish my dinner.
Those are just a few recommendations that everyone in the family will be happy with. Hopefully it helps get you started in the never-ending “what should we eat for dinner” conversation. But keep in mind, that Park City is a pretty casual town and you know your kids better than anyone so as long as it’s not a bar, they are welcome to join you anywhere. And if all else fails, you can always grab ice cream at Cow’s as you are wandering around town. I haven’t met a kid that doesn’t like dessert for dinner.
