Kids are always celebrated at this classic New England seaside restaurant, right from the entrance, papered with coloring pages from the weekly contest that scores a coupon for a free meal. Tuesdays, kids eat free with a paying adult, but the main attraction is on Fridays, when Jason Willinger travels from table to table, performing sleight-of-hand, passing out neon-glow necklaces, and crafting engaging balloon animals. It’s perched on the edge of Long Beach—let the kids chase the seagulls before and after dinner.
