I haven't really dined in restaurants since pre-pandemic, so never with two kids. My older kid is fine wherever, but my 2 year-old is definitely rambunctious. That being said, what types of restaurants would taking two kids including a toddler be a bad idea? For example I'm searching for some restaurants with outdoor seating near our hotel for an upcoming trip. A few are beer gardens. Is that bad? Is it a matter of time of day?

I know this all probably sounds really basic but I need to be reminded how to dine out and what to keep in mind for the two year-old!
