Looking for some kid friendly restaurant suggestions around Copley. From a search on this board, there're lots of good Italian restaurants on the North end. We'll be staying at a hotel in the Copley area. After a long flight, I'm not sure the kids will be up for the trip to the North end. Any suggestions for dinner places in the area? nothing too fancy. Just good food. The kids are used to Italian, Asian and American food. Thanks.

    Since you're not getting any suggestions, I'll jump in and suggest you take them to Legals. Not a Chowhound favorite, but one of the easiest restaurants I've found to take my kids (ages 5 and 2) and right in the heart of Copley. They have a decent kids menu (ranging from the expected seafood options to fish-shaped ravioli), the noise level is usually loud enough that a grumpy toddler doesn't cause a scene, and since the Copely location is in a mall, you can always carry them out if they need to run around or make a fuss during dinner.

      the skipjack's in copy is very kid-friendly. i'm sure chili duck would work for thai too.

        There is also Summer Shack nearby, which has gotten some mixed reviews, but many like it, and it has the kind of atmosphere you're probably seeking.

      After a long flight with 2 little ones, I have 2 words for you:
      Room Service

      Oh, and here are another two words:
      Mini Bar.
