While not a stand-out show, Family Restaurant is an enjoyable series for foodie families who are fans of Magnolia Network's other programming. Host Andrew Zimmern's laid-back, charismatic personality is perfect for telling the restaurant-owning families' stories. Family Restaurant also does a great job showcasing delicious dishes and cooking techniques from various types of cuisines. Foodie kids may gravitate to more exciting food programming, but it's a heartwarming and uplifting show that the whole family can watch together.
