Kids Eat Free in Grand Rapids + West Michigan

OFFERS CHANGE OFTEN – PLEASE CHECK!

My husband and I love to eat out on nights when things are busy or we just want to taste something new (and not have to clean up the mess!). Now, though, with three kids tagging along, the restaurant budget is blown with just one meal. Grand Rapids families love “kids eat free” restaurants so we’ve put together a list for you for those nights when you just want to eat out without breaking the budget.

We’ve researched restaurants in the Grand Rapids area that offer free or cheap kids’ meals. Terms and conditions apply and are subject to change. Please verify with the restaurant before you go.
