We know finding things to do with the family that don’t cost an arm and a leg can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. We’ve picked out five great spots to go out to eat with the family in Cleveland.

They’re all good, they’re all fun to visit, and they’re all affordable. Enjoy!

Sweet Moses

6800 Detroit Ave, Cleveland

What family doesn’t like sweet treats? This classic style soda fountain and treat shop is jam-packed with delicious ice cream, desserts, and more. Trust us, it’s worth the calories. It’s enough to make your mouth water! Plus, there are few things that delight the kids more than a stop in a place like this. Make it happen!


Mia Bella Restaurant

12200 Mayfield Rd, Cleveland

You can’t have a list of great local family restaurants without mentioning an Italian place at least once – and Mia Bella is a good one. Wonderful traditional pasta dishes, tasty Italian, good portions, reasonable prices, and a comfortable like-home feeling make this a great stop for the family.

Great Lakes Brewing Company

2516 Market Ave, Cleveland

Don’t let the “brewing” part put you off. This place is part of one of the region’s best brewing operations, sure, but it’s also a fantastic restaurant with delicious food the whole family will enjoy. Throw in a lively atmosphere and excellent beers for mom and dad and you’ve got a great weekend stop for you and the family.


Das Schnitzel Haus

5728 Pearl Rd, Cleveland

Few regions do German food as well as Ohio does, and in the Cleveland area if you want German you’ve got to stop at Das Schnitzel Haus. Fantastic meats, hearty soups, delicious stuffed cabbage, and a great traditional atmosphere that will make you feel at home. Definitely worth a look!

Mitchell’s Ice Cream

1867 W 25th St, Cleveland

The best way to cap things off is with some ice cream, right? If you agree – we KNOW the kids do – then try Mitchell’s, a great traditional ice cream plays that also makes its way into the modern age by offering vegan options. Nothing like a tasty treat to satisfy the family!
