10 Best Family-Family Restaurants in Honolulu

Hawaii is a popular family vacation spot and traveling families are a common sight in the islands. Here at 10 Best we know families, and it's nice to dine in a place where kids don't stand out and little chatterboxes don't stick out like a sore thumb. So we've compiled this list to guide visiting families to the best family friendly restaurants in and around Honolulu. From kinda fancy to simply casual, hungry families can find the perfect meal for the perfect occasion.

A true favorite with local families, Anna Miller's in Pearl City is a home style, family friendly gem. Open 24 hours and offering round the clock breakfast (and lunch and dinner too) Anna Miller's is a lively and warm place. They're known for their homemade fruit pies, so don't forget to try one.

For something a bit more upscale, Lei Lei's Bar and Grill at Turtle Bay Resort is a place both kids and parents will love. This classy but casual restaurant on the golf course is where the parents can kick back and relax at a table with great food and drinks, while kids run around the putting green and gaze at the turtle pond. It's ideal for kids who get antsy when their meal is done but the parents want to keep sitting down.

For a night of real family entertainment and food, the Polynesian Cultural Center is sure to wow. An abundance of food at a near theme park is fun for the whole family.
