Best Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Schaumburg

Discover a range of family-friendly dining experiences in the northwestern suburb.

When most people think about the suburbs, chain restaurants always come to mind. But if you visit Schaumburg, you don’t have to default to fast food.

There are a wealth of places that not only provide good food for kiddos, but cater specifically to them through themes and experiences. Here are some of our favorite family-friendly places to dine.


Located inside Woodfield Mall, Enterrium is a child’s dream come true. Part restaurant, part video arcade and bowling alley, the whole family can enjoy playing games and dining out under one roof. Grown-ups can keep the kids busy for hours while they enjoy an extensive menu of craft beer and upscale American fare (flay iron steak, bone-in pork chop, pot roast). After working up an appetite during a few rounds of games, kids can feast on a menu that includes everything a child’s heart desires (chicken tenders, cheeseburgers, pizza).

Kura Revolving Sushi Bar

While the sushi is great, the best part of Kura is how it is served! Kids and adults can expand the horizons of their palate as various types of sushi wind around their tables on a conveyor belt!.Try something new by grabbing it off the belt, or use a tableside interactive touch screen menu to customize your own sushi or noodle dish.

Travel back in time and take in dinner and a show at Medieval Times. Prepare to be amazed by a two-hour action-packed event that includes pageantry, falconry, magnificent horses, authentic sword fights, and jousting. So much excitement calls for a hands-on (no utensil), four-course feast of garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet, buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes and the pastry of the castle. Parents can also enjoy a full-service bar.

Pilot Pete’s

Chicago’s only aviation-themed eatery, Pilot Pete’s is situated so guests can watch planes take off from the Schaumburg Airport. Inside the restaurant, old plane photos, postcards and other aviation memorabilia line the walls. Even model planes hang from the ceiling! Kids can take in the runway action while munching on fan favorites like grilled cheese, buttered noodles and quesadillas.
