Long Lunch at the Chart House

In: 3 stars, Dinner, Lunch, Seafood

The experience It was our last day of vacation and we decided that we head to the Kemah Boardwalk as it is on the way home.  We tried to eat lunch in Galveston, but the restaurant we chose was closed so we headed on to Kemah.  When we arrived and parked, we ate at the [...]

The experience After a crazy night spent at the local urgent care center for Ogre’s awful migraine, which left me driving back and forth across the island with kids in tow and put me in bed at 5am, I awoke wondering if I’d be going to the spa as planned with Adrienne.  She decided that [...]

The experience We went to the Galveston aquarium today, which by the way, was awesome.  Against Ogre’s better judgement, we decided to head straight from there to dinner.  It was 5 o’clock and we thought it would be fun to take the ferry to Crystal Beach where there was a seafood restaurant that caught Adrienne [...]

The experience We did not leave Dallas til about 4:30PM and the kids (Benji) had not napped all day.  We had not even left Plano when Benji was out  and Mina was soon to follow.  I did not want to risk waking either of them up with any sort of stop, so we drove until [...]

The experience Ogre was finishing up lawn work (we have an acre) and as he was finishing up, I found out that I had an admission to see at the hospital.  We decided it would be the best plan to eat in Rowlett so I could head over to the hospital right after dinner and [...]

The experience This afternoon and evening were busy (as usual).  My car needed new tires, so we dropped off my car in the afternnon, then I had to take Mina to hula class, which is all the way across town while Benji napped.  Our original plan was to meet somewhere like we usually do, but [...]

Great Patio at Obzeet

In: 4 stars, Dallas, Dinner, Lunch, Patio, sandwiches

The experience It cooled off this weekend, and I wanted to find a nice patio where we could eat lunch.  As always, we had a laundry list of errands to run include going to Central Market, so I tried to think of a place near Central Market that would have a patio that was not one [...]

The experience Ogre and Dusty had a business meeting over in Addison, so we decided it would be easiest if we met out there for dinner when they were finished with their meeting.  Ogre told me he’d call before 6:30 to let me know what the deal was, and not surprisingly, he called at about [...]

Good Stuff at The Fish Shack

In: 3 stars, Dinner, Lunch, Plano, Seafood

The experience We decided to stay in Plano for dinner tonight and after some discussion, we remembered that we’d been wanting to try.  This spot has been home to many restaurants over the years, but was originally a Long John Silver’s.  It seems as though it’s back to it’s roots, as it is now the [...]

The experience Ogre told me that he was in the mood for soup tonight.  I suggested Mr. Shabu Shabu and he thought it sounded like a pretty good idea.  Mina was not with us as she was with Oma and Grandpoo.  So, it was just us and the Benj.  We’ve never been here before and [...]

About Child's Plate

Childsplate.com chronicles our journey to find the perfect family restaurant. We are looking for restaurants with excellent food and a great attitude towards kids, even the whiny, cranky ones! We will be headed out to a different restaurant every single day to provide ourselves (and you) with some entertainment and good information about DFW area restaurants. We hope you will visit frequently and use our experiences to create some fun dining experiences of your own! Watch out, DFW, the Phipps family is going out to eat!
