 we take out kids everywhere, from fast food to places with linen table cloths.  We feel its important to teach our children how to behave in public and resturants are a great place to learn.  depends on where we go for dress.

Us too. I mean budget wise it is rare we go anywhere to fancy. But we have gone to those places before with the kids and never had a problem. My kids know that we don't play with behavior in certain situations, and they are foodies so they enjoy those kinds of experiences. They are more adventurous than even dh and I!

 We used to take the kids out a couple of times a month.  Ranged from casual dining (Friendly's,  Chellos, Chilis) to semi casual (Rivieira, Galitos - these are both local portuguese restaurants).  When we went to casual places, jeans and tshirts were fine, I always dressed up a bit regardless because as a sahm I lived in yoga pants so a nice pair of jeans or skirt and dressier top were a welcomed change.   When we'd go semicasual my ds would wear khakis and a polo and dd would wear a simple dress or skirt.   Even now being a "single" (divorce will be final in 6 months - we hope) I still take them out once a month so it maintains the quality of life illusion for them - I don't want them to notice major changes in their day to day activites because their dad left, it's hard enough for them to be with one parent during the week and another on weekends.

Our favorite family restaraunt is Big City Diner. It's very casual. My luttle one does not behave well enough yet to go to a nicer restaraunt.

 We do take them out.  With 5 of us we cannot afford fancy very often but they like to go to Elmers or Denny's or Wubbas.  Unless it's one of those rare occassions when we can go fancy, we dress casually. (I do not allow my kids to go out in public in pjs though)
