9 Places Kids Eat Free in Destin


kids eat free in destinWe love dining out as a family, and along with our beautiful beaches and great local attractions, there are some amazing restaurants here! But, if your kids are anything like mine, you may spend $$$ on a kid’s meal they decide not to eat.  

We have tried all the tricks but my kids, like many, are just picky. We have resorted to buying one meal they can share, or tracking down the restaurants where kids eat free or close to free. That way if they decide they’re not hungry, or that the tiny piece of lettuce that touched their chicken made the entire meal inedible, we are not wasting food or money. I always suggest they touch it and smell it; if they still do not want it… fine don’t eat it. (insert sigh and eye roll)

I searched far and wide for the best places to bring my kids for a stress free dinner – mkay, actually just in Destin but it’s sort of wide. 

Here’s the list of 9 places I’ve found where Kids Eat Free in Destin:

IHOP – Everyday –  4pm-10pm – With purchase of an adult entree

AJ’s Seafood and Oyster  – Monday/ Wednesday/ Friday – Seasonally Offered

Chick-fil-a – Tuesday –  6pm-9pm – One free kids meal with purchase of an adult combo meal

Cheeseburger in Paradise – Tuesday – With purchase of an adult entree

Millers Ale House – Tuesday – With purchase of an adult entree

Applebees Wednesday – Kids eat for $0.99 all day 

Moe’s Southwest Grill Wednesday – 5pm-Close– Kids eat free with purchase of an adult entree

Zoe’s Kitchen – Sunday – 11am-7pm- One free kids meal with purchase of an adult entree

The Melting Pot 2nd Sunday of each month– With purchase of an adult entree

***All restaurants, time/date, and details are subject to change. We will try to keep this list updated but always call ahead to check if they are still honoring these deals!

The list may not be long compared to the list of restaurants in the community, but this opens up some options!  We love going out eat so I ❤️ finding spots that show customer appreciation for families with small kids. Props to these restaurants who get it!

Carrie is originally from Illinois but moved to the Destin area in 2009, where she later met her husband Lee.  They now have two spunky little boys, Elias and Oliver.  Carrie and her family moved between Destin and Nashville, TN for quite a few years - almost as backwards snowbirds - Summers in Florida & Winters in Tennessee. While in Tennessee Carrie finished her degree in Communications and soon after moving back to Florida, settled in Santa Rosa Beach. Carrie started working with Destin 30a Moms Blog once it was founded in 2017 as a contributor and purchased it early in 2019 with business partner, Whitney Whidden. The two continue to believe in connecting local moms both online and off, and creating a go-to resource for everything you need to know about motherhood on the Emerald Coast.   When she's not out around town (probably at Target or looking for the best cup of coffee) she can be found with her family enjoying trips to Walt Disney World, golfing, staying active, and spending time on the water by boat or beach!   Contact her via email at [email protected]
