Nominated for Best Family Restaurant on CityVoter's 2011 A-List, Steamboat Garden has been serving up affordable family food since 1933. Today, guests at the boat-shaped restaurant can peer through its bright red portholes to watch as the friendly staff fills tables with steaks and seafood, breaded pork loin sandwiches known as Tug Boats, and seven incarnations of a signature hamburger that has been a Falls Avenue favorite since the 1940s. Between bites, diners sip old-fashioned floats made with 1919 draft root beer and then send instant photos of their empty plates to mom by accessing the restaurant's WiFi with a laptop or aluminum foil helmet.

The combinations are nearly endless at Brick House Frozen Yogurt. The shop's self-serve frozen yogurt machines dispense a rotating selection of 21 flavors, with options such as cookies 'n cream, peanut butter banana sandwich, and strawberry lemonade. Then, there's the toppings bar, loaded with more than 50 types of candies, cookies, nuts, and fresh fruits so customers can bedeck their frozen creation however they choose. As if the custom treats weren't sweet enough, the shop also offers daily specials nearly every night of the week. On Tuesdays, for instance, guests enjoy free toppings on their yogurt from 6-9 p.m., while an on-going monthly promotion awards a free cup of yogurt to anyone who can fit the most flavors in one cup or suit-jacket pocket.
