If you’ve ever felt anxious taking your kids to a restaurant, Open Table has a list of restaurants that the whole family can enjoy, meaning you don’t have to chow down on that chicken sandwich in the play-room.

Major chains like Benihana and Hard Rock Cafe made the kid-friendly list after checking out over 12,000 reviews and 30,000 restaurants.  One big surprise making the list?  Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen in Las Vegas made the cut for fine dining that won’t have employees scolding you if your kids act like, well, kids.

Florida and New York are the states with the most kid-friendly restaurants.  Each state had seven restaurants in the top 50.

Which restaurant do you think is the most kid-friendly?  Which restaurant do you avoid taking your kids to eat?
