Kids Eat Free {or Almost Free} Around Columbia

Kids Eat Free & Other Columbia Area Dining Deals for Families | Columbia SC Moms BlogGoing out to eat as a family can be fun. Of course, if you’ve got squirmy little ones, it can also be challenging, but it’s always nice to get out of the house and enjoy a meal out once in a while. Especially on those nights after a long day when you just don’t feel like cooking dinner. I know we’ve all been there! 

But, what’s not fun about eating out is the price. Depending on where you eat, a family meal can add up pretty quickly … but it doesn’t have to! Here is a list of places kids eat free {or almost free} to accommodate even the pickiest of eaters!
