How often do you eat out? Are you more likely to go somewhere quick or sit down? How do your kids behave?

We eat out a lot when we are traveling back and forth to different cities etc, because there isn't much near us.

We try to go in, it's becoming more challenging because Arthur isn't quite old enough to sit in a highchair, but we don't have an infant seat for him, so he's a lap baby. He is extremely well behaved though, and i hope that his exposure to eating out will help him be a well behaved kid in those settings... who knows though.

We used to eat out a lot more than we do now. It used to be at least 2 days a week, now there's nothing near us, so short of driving 30+ minutes for a meal, we eat at home. I'd say we bring something home to eat once every other week or so now and if we're actually going to eat out we make it a nice sit down meal.

The kids are pretty well behaved in restaurants. I always have little books and some dinky cars in my purse though to entertain them when they start to get bored if the meal runs long.

we dont eat out that often, maybe 1-2 times a month. We prefer to go to a sit down place, but with 3 little boys that isnt always an option, lately when we do eat out its been grabbing something quick after grocery shopping or running an errand in the evening

We eat out a few times a week, most often take out, and if we do it eat, the kids behave pretty well

We rarely go out to eat with all 7 of us to a restaurant. Maybe once a year. If we are out and about and need to eat, we usually go to costco, then we're done for $30.

Usually once a month to go in somewhere and once or twice a month to somewhere quick if we're rushed between appointments or something.
