Restaurants with teenagers

I know there are a lot of "nice" restaurants in and around Palm Desert, but can anyone recommend some good restaurants to bring teenagers? Anything with a nice view? Good food, yet not sky high prices? I love Tommy Bahama, but it gets costly with 3 kids. Thanx!

Elephant Bar is a nice suggestion, the food is pretty decent there, I love their Mango Swirl drink. Ambiance is fun there for teens, it has an African flair to it. There is a nice variety of menu items also, a little something for everyone there and the desserts are great! :)

Hi Melba, a place our whole family loves is the Cliff House on Hwy. 111. It's built right into the side of a mountain, great views, and has lots of water features, and the best part is the Hula Pie for dessert.


A new restaurant we tried last month was Chapellis Homestead, in old La Quinta. Most items are $10-$20. If kids finish their plate they get to go in the candy store.


Have you heard of the Mimi's Cafe restaurants? There is one by The River on Hwy 111 in Rancho Mirage.


Also inside The River, is Babes BBQ

I agree with a previous post in regards to the Cliff House, but you want to eat at the bar side called the Cactus Grill. Much cheaper with great happy hours and nightly specials. Sit outside by the fire pit. It's great. Also Babe's barbecue at the River shopping area is very reasonable (no view).

Just down the road from the Elephant Bar is a Mexican place called Casuela's. We enjoyed both places.
