Readers' Choice Family-Friendly Restaurants: And The Winner is?

Lots of people voted in our Readers' Choice Poll which asked the question: What is the best family-friendly restaurant in Sherman Oaks?

When it comes to great family-friendly restaurants, it's clear there are a wide variety of opinions, based on the large number of votes we received and the additional places that people added in the comments section.

The winner in our poll was Mels Drive In, twenty six percent of the people who voted in our poll named Mels as the best family friendly restaurant in Sherman Oaks. And it's no wonder, Mel's serves large, juicy burgers with tasty french fries and the atmosphere is comfortable and friendly.

Also, the juke boxes on each table offers hits from the past thirty years, and let's not forget all those signed celebrity pictures on the wall, some of them go back fifty years.

The number two finisher is Stanley's restaurant. This is a high quality bistro that caters to families and they also draw a large crowd of single people. The food and service are also excellent.

Let's not forget the writing bartenders, of Stanley's profiled by reporter Barbara Sternig on Sherman Oaks Patch.

Our other family-friendly restaurants did get some support as you can see in the Readers' Choice poll below.

Nat's Early Bite serves breakfast and lunch. It's in a little strip mall on the NorthWest corner of Burbank and Hazeltine. Nat's has teamed up with Big Kids - a retro toy store right next door. You can shop and play while you wait for a table. They'll call your name at Big Kids when your table is ready. Reliably good food and service. Really reasonable prices. We've been brining our kids there since they were infants. We love Nat's!

Agreed! Nat's and Big Kid are an awesome way to spend a Saturday morning! Big Kid is the most fun for grownups and kids! The owner, Dave Levy is a great guy.
