7 Ottawa Restaurants Where Kids Can Eat Free!

I don’t know about you but I love to dine out.  It’s a great way to have a fantastic meal and not have to worry about the clean-up or the prep.  Meals out are even better when it’s cheap but cheap doesn’t have to mean fast food.

One of the ways that we dine out, without it costing us a fortune, is to dine out at restaurants that offer a “kids eat free” option on certain nights of the week.

Below you’ll find a list that I’ve compiled of restaurants that are local to Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley that offer a “kids eat free” special.  Please call ahead though as these offers may change regularly.  If you have another restaurant to add that also offers this special, leave it in the comments below and I’ll update the post.

  1. Derek says

    We were just at the Clyde location of Denny’s today, and, unfortunately, they no longer participate in the kids-eat-free promotion.

  2. Crystal says

    Hard Stones in Manotick for sure have kids eat free on Mondays after 3pm for kids 12 and under – with the purchase of every adult meal.

  3. Annie says

    The restaurant Ardoise on Laurier (Hull side, across the Portage Bridge) in the Four Points Sheraton Hotel, kids under 3 eat free everyday.
