Dining out with kids can sometimes be pretty unpleasant if there's a long wait and everyone is hungry and there's nothing to occupy the kids while you wait. At Tyler's Tender, there's plenty to keep everyone busy while they wait with trains to watch and ride and a small arcade.
Even I have fun pushing the buttons to operate this train:
And if I could fit in this train, I'd probably ride it, too.
Oh, and don't assume that the only food options are foods that appeal to kids. They do, of course, have the standard kid fair like grilled cheese, hot dog, popcorn chicken, macaroni and cheese and pizza. But, there's also an assortment of menu items that adults will love -- paninis, salads and wraps on garlic roasted red pepper bread, pretzel bread and spinach tortillas.
