Finding Family-Friendly Restaurants in Jackson Hole

Calico Restaurant - Jackson Hole

While there are dozens of restaurants in Jackson Hole offering adventurous meals for the adult palate, the ambiance may not always be as much fun for the kids. Luckily, there are also a plethora of restaurants where the whole family can enjoy a meal out. Here are 8 examples of family-friendly Jackson Hole restaurants.

Calico Bar & Restaurant

Calico’s one-and-a-half acre yard for kids to frolic on makes this American-Italian restaurant one of Jackson Hole’s favorite family friendly places for both visitors and locals alike. Parents can nibble on some tasty appetizers and sip a glass of wine on Calico’s deck while their offspring play ball, a game of “tag” and generally just run around before and after they eat dinner, all within eyesight. The meals on the kid’s menu are only $3.50, making Calico a win-win for the entire family. Location: 2620 Moose-Wilson Rd. in Wilson, WY; 307-733-2460

Q Roadhouse & Brewery

Q Roadhouse & Brewery shares the fun, kid-friendly lawn with Calico. This casual Southern eatery and brewery offers something for everyone. In addition to a kid's menu, there is frequent live music to entertain the whole family during dinner. Kids and parents alike will enjoy cracking the shells of the peanuts that are placed on every table—shells that are encouraged to land on the floor of the restaurant after popping the peanuts into your mouths! Location: 2550 Moose Wilson Rd., Wilson, WY; 307-739-0700

Snake River Brewery

At first blush you might not picture a brewery as a kid-friendly venue, but you should never judge a book by its cover. The Snake River Brewery offers more than just Jackson Hole-brewed suds. The large, high-ceilinged and high-energy restaurant is a great fit for families. While the first floor presents more of a pub atmosphere with its large bar area, the second floor screams family with its half dozen hanging TV’s for kids to watch sports or cartoons, as well a foosball table and video games for pre-dinner entertainment. Location: 265 So. Millward in Jackson, WY; 307-739-2337

Merry Piglets Mexican Grill

If your family is craving some south of the border fare, Merry Piglets — the oldest Mexican restaurant in Jackson Hole — fits the bill. This brightly colored popular eatery just off Town Square features fanciful pig drawings on its walls, which are sure to delight the young children in the family. Generous booths and tables easily fit a larger family and the menu is equally as sizeable. Crayons and such accompany a separate children’s menu — all perfect for pint-sized amigos. Location: 160 North Cache St. in downtown Jackson, WY; 307-733-2966

Sidewinders Restaurant

Sidewinders American Grill

A sports fan’s paradise, Sidewinders American Grill boasts 30 TVs throughout its dining areas, making it Jackson Hole’s go-to restaurant for those in search of a casual and lively dining experience — with a side of a good ball game. Of course, the kids love it as well. Not only can young diners choose to munch on affordable kid’s cuisine, they can also play in the special arcade room. Recently featured on The Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives,” there’s something for the entire family at Sidewinders. Location: 945 West Broadway, Jackson, WY; 307-734-5766

Liberty Burger

Liberty Burger is a great family-friendly Jackson Hole restaurant located in the heart of downtown, steps away from Town Square. The dining area is intimate yet bustling and makes for great people watching through its large picture window facing the street.  Liberty’s amazing, thicker-than-thick creamy milkshakes bring out the kid in everyone. With flavors such as caramel and sea salt or graham cracker, the restaurant makes it easy for one to adhere the adage: “eat dessert first.”  Location: 160 North Cache St. in downtown Jackson, WY; 307-200-6071

The Lift

The Lift is located right across the street from Snow King Mountain, so it’s the ideal spot for families to enjoy a good meal before or after enjoying the new Cowboy Coaster, Alpine Slide, mini-golf, or a day on the slopes.  The casual, friendly atmosphere and signature burgers are just some of the reasons the restaurant is a local and tourist favorite. Cozy booths beckon inside the bar area and there are several TV screens for viewing various sporting events. When it’s warm outside, choose a spot on the spacious patio to enjoy the full flavor of Jackson Hole.  Location: 645 South Cache St. in Jackson, 307-733-5438
