19 Canadian Restaurants Where Kids Can Eat for FREE!!

Canadian Deals & Coupons


I was just checking out the freebies section here on Smart Canucks and came across a great thread by Freebiechick.  She has compiled a list of 19 Canadian restaurants where your kids can eat for free!  She has even included the days of the week that the free kids meals are offered and the restrictions, if there are any.

This is an amazing post that I’m sure every parent out there will really appreciate.  Eating out is great and it’s even better when it doesn’t have to cost you a small fortune.

So without further ado, here is the list that Freebiechick has compiled for us:

Kids eat free on Wednesdays at participating restaurants.

Babaloo Restaurant
Kids eat free on Saturdays at participating restaruants.

Boston Pizza
Kids eat free any day of the week with an adult meal purchase of $10 or more at participating restaurants.

Kids eat free on Sundays at participating restaurants.

Crabby Joes
Kids eat free on Sundays at participating restaurants.

Kids eat free on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 4-10 pm at participating restaurants.

East Side Marios
Kids eat free on Mondays at participating restaurants.

Golden Griddle
Kids eat free on Wednesdays at participating restaurants.

Kids eat free on weekends at participating restaurants.

Kids eat free every Friday between 5 – 9 pm.

Joey’s Fish and Chips
Kids eat free on Sundays at participating restaurants.

Jungle Jims

Keltic Rock
Children eat free on Sundays at participating restaurants.

Montana’s Cookhouse

Pizza Delight

Pizza Hut

Swiss Chalet

My personal favorite is Hooters having free kids meals on weekends, so funny.  Not really where I would take my son for dinner, but hey, too each their own.  If you know of any other places that offer free kids meals, please feel free to add them into the comments section.

Thanks again to Freebiechick for the heads up on all the free kids meals!

    Buffet des continents (Quebec) – kids eat free Sunday to Friday.

    My family loves this place – good food, good price. If we eat there on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday a dinner for four is less expensive than McDonalds.

  2. Lark says:

    Kids? Hmm… What about adolescents?

    Thanks for posting this!!!

  4. maybe says:

    You would have to call your local restaurants to see what they consider a “kid” I guess. I would assume it’s under the age of 12 at the oldest and maybe under 10 at some.

  5. RobynCD says:

    Who would take their children to Hooters, or some place called Philthy McNasty’s? Sounds like great family dining! Why not take the Grandparents too?

    • Candice R says:

      I was hoping to bring my 3 year old there for his birthday after a private viewing of 50 Shades of Grey. Now that I feel mom shamed 😂😋 TOTALLY KIDDING!

  6. Cheripou says:

    For the Buffet des continents, it’s usualy 12 years and younger…

  7. Cheripou says:

    Sorry forgot to add, kids eat free when accompanied by an adult… If you are 1 adult and 2 kids – you will have to pay for a kids meal…

  8. Lindemann says:

    What’s wrong with taking a boy to Hooters? Heaven forbid he sees good looking women. I wish my parents weren’t all uptight about stuff like that. I might have become a guy who can actually talk to women instead of a coward that can’t even approach them.

  9. FreebieChick says:

    Np for posting this! Enjoy 🙂

    Thanks Maybe 🙂

  11. jaggy says:

    @Lindemann : Seeing women in an arguably exploitative situation isn’t the best way to develop self-confidence. Pornography isn’t either, by the way.

  12. Lindemann says:

    ^ True it won’t do anything for self-confidence but my point was that sheltering kids from even the slightest displays of sexuality (Hooters is pretty tame) is unnatural and harmful.

  13. lynn says:

    frankie tomato has a kids free on tuesdays great resteraunt

  14. tnp says:

    Thats ridiculous, why would you even say that?? hooters?? fav place to take the kids too? your lame, this blog specifically should be aired on the news… don’t give bad rep to smart canucks.

  15. tnp says:

    im taking this to the ottawa sun media,about your poor judgement. Their children! not adults!

  16. wow says:

    tnp, your grammar is giving a “bad rep” to smart canucks. Please learn the difference between the correct usage of ‘your’ and ‘you’re’, and ‘their’, ‘they’re’ and ‘there’. As well, learn when to use a period instead of a comma. And lastly, there’s something called an apostrophe!

    Frankie Tomatto’s Monday Kids Eat Free (11 years and under) (1 Child per paying adult). Lunch and Dinner. http://www.frankietomatto.com

  18. elizabeth says:

    ive taken my daughter to hooters with my bf … she sees worst things on commericals or on the beach people are to uptight now a days she loved the deep fried pickles

  19. Tammy says:

    Angel’s Diner also has kids eat Free during the week I believe.

  20. James Bonney says:

    Boston Pizza kids eat free is no more.
    They are starting a new promotion where you donate $5 to BP charity and they give you 5 free kids meals…starts soon I believe.

  21. OldHootersGirl says:

    Hooter’s is actually considered a “family” restaurant by many, including the corporation itself. I had many families visit me while working at Hooters, including quite a few kids birthday parties! The kids love taking pictures with all the girls. The uniform really isn’t that inappropriate – suggestive, yes, however children see that on tv, walking down the street or even in school! Moxie’s also has suggestive uniforms, in fact many of the restaurant and bar combinations have lower cut shirts for women as their uniform.

  22. Wrong on Boston Pizza says:

    James Bonney already commented on this, but I’d like to second it: Boston Pizza does NOT have free kids meals no matter the expenditure of accompanying adults, and hasn’t for the past year or two.

    Last year I was able to make a “Kids’ Help Phone” donation of $5, which provided us with a card for eight free kids meals (an amazing deal, as these are valued at $6.99 each). The back of the card states that the card cannot be used on the date of purchase, but our server at the time did allow it. This particular card expired on Sept. 30th, so I suspect that what James referred to above me is the same program, just fewer free meals (even one free meal is still a savings). YMMV for the use on date of purchase, and only some locations sell and honour these.

  23. Jason Archibald says:

    Hey thanks for the post, I have to take care of my nephews for a week this is going to save me some coin; and give me an excuse to go to hooters, besides the wings.

    – And just a heads up as a previous poster said “moxies” is quite suggestive and they only hire based on looks (and a little skill) yet is still suggested as a mid to high end family establishment. The times are changing, for better or worse, who are we to judge?

    Thanks again for the post.

  24. Gussy says:

    Thanks for posting this!

  25. Monica says:

  26. Maria says:

    Jack Astor’s kids eat free on monday

  27. Shoegal says:

    Philthy McNasty’s is a great place – don’t judge by the name. Lots of families go there for dinner. Just don’t take them late at night when it turns into a club.

  28. good topic. thanks for sharing knowledge

  29. Annette says:

    Join the kids birthday club at Lonestar and receive a coupon for free kids meal once a year.

  30. Cdngal says:

    What’s wrong with taking a child to Hooters? Most people take their children to the beach where women wear less clothing than the Hooters uniform. It’s shorts, a tank top and an owl logo. Hoot!!

  35. Amanda says:

    Boston Pizza in Medicine Hat doesn’t have free kids meals at all…whats up with that?

  36. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the long run and it’s time to be happy. I’ve learn this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some attention-grabbing things or advice. Maybe you could write subsequent articles regarding this article. I want to read more issues about it!

  37. Colleen says:

    Your site should take Boston Pizza off showing kids eat free during the week. We went to Peterborough, last night , the kids meal is $6.99. Still not a bad deal.

  38. babs says:

    I can’t believe the people saying how horrible it is to take their kids to hooters. I think the food sucks, so I wouldn’t go because of that. But they wear worse at Moxies, but because it isn’t called hooters it’s ok to bring your kids there. WOW!Anyways I work at Montana’s so you should bring your kids there Tuesday. Make sure you tip a little extra since your bill isn’t as high as it should be. ;)lol

  39. Carly says:

    At Boston Pizza you need to buy a card they stamp so kids can eat free. Just a heads up before you go thinking they are free.
