Family friendly restaurant in San Francisco with dancing

My family usually spends the holidays in San Francisco. Family includes kids ranging from 5 - 16 years old. We usually go to The Tonga Room because it has dancing afterwards. Does anyone know of a similar place that is family friendly dining and has dancing for the kids. Most of the hotel restaurants/nightclubs are for adults only.

  1. Russian restaurants, like "Russia House" have dancing and food. Most parties there are family celebrations and you'll see all ages (very old and very young) and styles there.

    1. On the coast in Pacifica is Nick's Rockaway beach which has a live band and dancing on weekend nights. Good American traditional menu, very retro early 60's look and feel. Great crab sandwich.

        You may want to call first if interested, because the video on their website implies that the dancing may be over 21 only (and possibly over 65), but I've been there when kids were in the dancing area, just never actually stayed for the band.
