Chicken Run restaurant is a family friendly restaurant in Windham, New York near Windham Mountain Resort. They hosted us for a dinner as part of our Family Travel to the Catskills series.
When we arrived at the Chicken Run restaurant for dinner we were greeted by a friendly waitstaff in a country-like atmosphere. With its country décor and hospitality it was almost as if we were eating in the South and not Upstate New York in the Catskill Mountains. The Chicken Run restaurant is a fun place for a family dinner year round.
What makes Chicken Run restaurant extra special for families?
- Popcorn – Some restaurants give complimentary bread. The Chicken Run restaurant gives a community bowl of popcorn to munch.
- Outdoor seating and decor – During the warmer months, the Chicken Run restaurant has plenty of outdoor seating. Enjoy your dinner at a table near the seafood shack or closer to the campfire. The teepee is a fun touch.
- Ice cream/penny counter – Kids can buy candy at the old-fashioned penny counter or have their favorite candies added to their ice cream sundaes. My 8 year old chose Swedish Fish.
- Arcade – Near the front entrance the Chicken Run restaurant has an arcade with a few video games.
- Wikki Stix Wall – When we sat down with my boys at the Chicken Run restaurant Melanie, our waitress, gave each boy a pack of Wikki Sticks. They were encouraged to get creative and add their creations to the Wikki Stix Wall.
- S’mores – During the warmer months, Chicken Run restaurant guests can order S’mores for dessert and make them over the campfire outback.
- Quick service – The food came out quick when we dined at the Chicken Run restaurant. So quick that it was almost hard to get pictures taken before courses. But as a mom, I appreciate when the food comes out quickly enough that kids don’t have enough time to get bored.
