Industrial-Sized Eats: Best Places to Dine with Kids in Georgetown

Read next


We’re not sure it’s a secret anymore, but for those not yet in the know—Georgetown is too cool for school. Located in what was (and still is) an industrial area just west of I-5 and the train tracks, just south of downtown and just north of Boeing Field, the hip, bohemian, just slightly grungy-in-a-good-way neighborhood of Georgetown offers more than antique stores, crumbling brick buildings and hipsters sipping cappuccinos; it’s also home to some seriously satisfying grub! Click through for our round-up of the best eats this happening little ‘hood has to offer.


Cutting Board
Sitting on the northern edge of the main drag of Georgetown in a small spot sits the Cutting Board, opened by the former chef at Belltown’s Wasabi Bistro—one of the best kept sushi secrets in Seattle, according to dozens of glowing reviews. With over 60 fresh and extremely cheap (many starting at $3.50) sushi rolls on a menu that also includes bento boxes, curries, yakisoba, udon and more, you’ll be shocked you didn’t know about this place before. Servers are ready for your littles, with kid chopsticks, kid-sized dishes and more set out as soon as they spy a mini-me. Open every day except Sunday for lunch and dinner, peruse the menu, place and pay for your order at the counter, and get ready for a Japanese food jamboree!

Chew on this: Although there isn’t specifically a kids’ menu, one of the reasons we love Japanese food is that there are lots of kid-friendly options. Their Nabeyaki udon offers chewy udon noodles in a delicious broth that you and your kidlets will love to slurp, and their variety of katsu and homemade croquettes will please your pickiest pumpkin. There are so many sushi rolls to choose from, your difficulty may only be in trying to decide what to order! (If you need help, we recommend starting with the Hiroshima Roll.)

You’ll be pleasantly pleased with the ambiance, service and sushi at this relaxing spot in the Georgetown Plaza, located across from Harbor Freight Tools. Open for lunch and dinner Monday-Friday and dinner on Saturdays, they specialize in sushi, and their seafood is fresh and delicious. A hot pot of tea comes with your meal, and they will pretty much make you whatever you’d like, so if you’re not finding a roll that makes you happy, just ask and ye shall receive! (On one visit we watched a little girl ask for a banana she saw behind the counter. The server brought it right to her without batting an eye.)

Chew on this: They have a great selection of veggie rolls, and their rockin’ Rainbow Roll combines a California Roll with assorted fresh fish. Because it’s a sushi joint, you kiddo might be limited to miso soup and edamame, unless you have a sushi connoisseur on your hands. Or maybe they’ll spy a banana behind the counter…
