Sure, many bars and restaurants in the Twin Cities will be screening the big game. But not every single one of them will be cool to bring the kiddos. 

Here are five family-friendly places in Minneapolis and St. Paul to enjoy the game with the whole brood.

Red Cow 

The fancied-up burger chain that's popular on both sides of the river has an easygoing atmosphere and reasonable prices. It's an approachable spot when you've got kids or picky eaters in tow because face it – everybody loves burgers (yes, there's a veggie burger, too). On the kids' menu, check out mini versions of the classics – sliders, corn dogs, and wings. On game day, beginning at kickoff through the end of the game, all Red Cow locations will feature $2 Minnesota beers, a $5 Ultimate Burger and $5 Wings (Buffalo, BBQ, and Japanese Sticky).


West 7th Street’s gourmet taqueria is owned by a couple of white tablecloth chefs who decided that tacos are their real passion in life. The restaurant has become a neighborhood fave with friendly service and something-for-everyone Mexican fare from casual to finer. On Super Bowl Sunday, celebrate with a “Super Bowl House Party” including a buffet of classic game-day eats, including Pajarito-style chili, chips and dips, plus and many other favorites. A $40 ticket admits two, and includes a pitcher of beer and unlimited access to the buffet. 

Smith and Porter 

If you're daring enough to brave the neighborhood near the stadium on game day, try this typically peaceful spot to hunker down and chill once you're gloriously inside. This quiet, New American bistro serves charcuterie, poutine, even a fancy grilled cheese. On Super Bowl Sunday Smith and Porter will serve brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with bottomless mimosas. At 4 p.m. a dinner menu will begin with special of a 9 oz beef filet with crab butter. Enjoy it while watching the game in the dining room – they're bringing in a big screen for viewing. 

Seventh Street Truck Park 

With an indoor food truck park and a 15-pound ice cream sandwich, there are few other spaces with this much sensory overload and space for your kids to run wild. The menu is practically built with the game in mind: chicken, ribs, pizza, chips and guac, plus much more. And, there's a full weekend of events leading up to the big day. On Friday and Saturday, hear live music from 5 p.m. to midnight. On Super Bowl Sunday, enjoy $10 bottomless Bud Light, a pizza buffet, and Super Bowl bingo. 

Pimento Jamaican Kitchen 

Counter-service Jamaican cooking and cool, Caribbean vibes make this place super welcoming no matter who you are. Both owners are family dudes, so you're likely to find kids, grandparents, and everyone in between zipping around, dancing, or just chowing down on curry, jerk, or braised oxtails. For Super Bowl Sunday, you can enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet, a drink ticket and the game on the big screen for $30.
