Best Local Family Restaurant

Idaho Pizza Co.

With 15 locations across the state, Idaho Pizza Co. is a Gem State mainstay. The lunchtime pizza buffet and salad bar is one of the best values around, and thanks to roomy dining areas, smiling staff, kid-friendly options and to-die-for signature pies, choosing Idaho Pizza for a family night out (or in) is a no-brainer.

2nd Place: Highlands Hollow—"The Hollow" is a beloved Boise institution as history-rich as it is welcoming. It's the oldest microbrewery in the city and was built with pieces from the old Boise State University. The Hollow is a family destination specializing in elevated pub food and signature suds for the adults.

3rd Place: Smoky Mountain Pizzeria Grill—Kids are always welcome at Smoky Mountain, where high chairs abound, a game room keeps tykes busy and the kids' menu includes a make-your-own pizza option. To keep the party going, Smoky Mountain has Teddy Grahams for dessert and a frisbee to take home.
