Boston Market – Daily: While Boston Market doesn’t offer a specific Kids-Eat-Free Deal, they do offer a daily family dinner special in the form of their Family Meals ranging from $20-$40 depending on the number of servings. They also offer lemon slices for water. Because my goal, with Kids Eat Free deals is to feed my family of six for $40 or less, this amounts to pretty the same thing. These work great when you have kids with tiny appetites. (Verified 10/31/2019)

In St. Paul, the attached restaurant is The Liffey. (Verified 10/31/2019)

International House of Pancakes (IHOP) – Kids eat free everyday from 4-10 pm., but not at every location all the time. Call your favorite location to verify.

13 thoughts on “Kids Eat Free or Cheap Twin Cities List”

  1. I know that at the Lakeville Green Mill we often go for Sunday Buffet. Most of the time they let our kids eat free…once they did charge us. They said it was for kids 4 and up. I told them we had a 4 year old but they only charged us for the 6 year old. I can’t remember how much maybe $6?

    1. Hi Lisa:

      I called the Old Country Buffet in Burnsville (the one we list) and they are still open and still offer the same Thursday night deal. I know some others have gone out of business recently. We will verify these deals and add an updated verification date to the various entries.

  2. Rosemount – Carbone’s Tuesdays kids eat the buffet for $1.99 with adult purchase ($8.99 buffet).
    Fireside Tuesday’s kids eat for $1 with adult entree purchase.
    Rudy’s Red Eye Grill Wednesdays kids eat free with a $11 adult entree purchase.

    1. Good news. I have heard back from Fuddruckers and they DO still offer both deals.

      “Good Morning Joy,
      Yes we are still offering those deals. Both are valid after 4pm and are exactly as you stated. Please feel free to reach out to us with any further questions.

      Delighted To Help,
      Garrett Beatty
      General Manager”
