Rounding up some of the best kid friendly restaurants in CT for today’s post because there is nothing worse than a terrible restaurant experience with kids, AM I RIGHT?! I will continually add to this list for you all but there is just the starting point. We have visited a lot of these but some of the others were recommended by my community, all of YOU! When we get the chance to visit them all, we definitely will! If you have a restaurant that you love and think should be added to this list, please email me 🙂
