I'll be visiting Columbia MO the week prior to Thanksgiving and would like to take the family out for a casual dinner. There will be 3 adults and 4 children ages 7 to 17. Moderate cost level and a varied menu would be in order. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. Pizza and the like are more casual than I am seeking. I know about a few in that category. There is a BBQ in Jefferson city though I do not recall the name or location and that is a distance I would not seek out so more local choices would be better. Any assistance is appreciated.

        You might look at Flat Branch Pub and Brewing. Good food, varied menu and the place is nice and noisy...very kid-friendly.

          Thank you for your recommendations. They are helpful and I will report back to let you know how it went. I missed these comments at first glance and reposted my request - sorry about that.

            search the board. it's sluggish, but there have been many others with similar requests, the comments may have sunk way down in the list, but places don't change really fast in mid-missouri (just call ahead to be sure they're still in business)
