Dinner suggestions near JW Marriott?

We will be staying for three nights at the JW Marriott over Memorial Day weekend. I am seeking some dinner suggestions near our hotel that would be toddler-friendly (we have a well-behaved 3YO) and moderately priced. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as most of the restaurants in the area seem to be national chains that we frequent at home. Would prefer to stay reasonably close to the hotel.

Pita jungle is one of my favorites in the area.

If you're at the Marriott anyway, do have dinner at Roy's, or at the very least, go for happy hour. They have excellent food and drink specials. Otherwise, there are lots of restaurants at Desert Ridge mall, or head further east to Kierland Commons, which also has lots of shops and restaurants.

And finally, this may sound odd, but there is actually an excellent casual restaurant inside the 'Tom's Thumb' car wash/gas station at the corner of 94th Street and Bell Rd. It's just a short drive on the 101 from your hotel to get there. Tom's Thumb has been remodeled and is actually quite nice inside (very "Scottsdale chic", lol!), and the staff is friendly and helpful. They have indoor and outdoor seating - perfect for a toddler - and they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

As mentioned the marketplace nearby does have a lot of options. Yard House and KEG would be my suggestions. I have not visited YH there as I have one near my home. But Keg was great.If you go early, like 5, your kiddo would not be an issue.
