Try Something New
It's good for kids to have new experiences! While your child may not order anything new for themselves, they may have a bite - or two - of your dish. Opportunities like this can help them learn to keep and open mind and try something new without having to risk anything big. If you have older kids, everyone can order something different and everyone can share, which allows everyone to try something they wouldn't have ordered otherwise.
Distraction Free Family Time
With everyone having a busy schedule, it can be tough sometimes to find time to spend together at home. Even dinner can sometimes get lost in the shuffle and be a rush. By eating out at a restaurant, you get the chance to slow down and take a breather. Eating out together can become another family tradition, whether it's a birthday dinner at a favorite restaurant or enjoying Li'l Rizzo's wing special every Tuesday!
Small Treat or Big Celebrations
Going out to eat can be a treat for a special event, such as a birthday, graduation or holiday. However, it can also be a reward for getting good grades or acknowledging their efforts. Your kids will love to dig into our Gummy Bear Pizza (6" cheese pizza served with a side of gummy bears) as a special treat for doing good!
Builds Social Skills & Manners
For little kids, eating out is a great way to practice their social skills and their good manners. Restaurants provide a ton of opportunities from interacting with the wait staff to patiently waiting for the food to come out. In addition, the meals at restaurants usually last a little bit longer than the ones you enjoy at home, so conversations may be longer too, which gives them a chance to work on their conversation skills as well.
No Dishes To Clean!
One of the best parts about dining out is not having to prepare, cook, serve dinner or clean up afterward. Dining out provides those who do it all, cooking, cleaning and taking care of the kids a night off! Let us do the hard work and you can enjoy a nice night out and a delicious meal.
At Li'l Rizzo's, we have two of the best Italian restaurants at the Lake of the Ozarks. We love it when you come in as a family and join us for a delicious meal. Our Osage Beach location features a large dining area, which is perfect for bringing the extended family along for dinner. Li'l Rizzo's on Horseshoe Bend features a beautiful view of the Lake of the Ozarks and offers a small, homey feel, which is perfect for date night! We look forward to serving you soon.
