ORLANDO, Fla. -

Three Orlando-area restaurants made the cut for America's most popular family-friendly restaurants.

Urbanspoon, the leading mobile restaurant discovery app and online restaurant guide, selected 100 restaurants most suitable for family dining. This list included 4 Rivers Smokehouse, Ethos Vegan Kitchen and Yellow Dog Eats.

The restaurant selections were based on the requirements of not being too fancy, not being too noisy and having something to feed kids beyond just being white and starchy. They also had to have a nice atmosphere, a diverse menu and friendly service, according to Urbanspoon.

The restaurants were given family-friendly accolades by receiving positive reviews from professional food critics, bloggers and Urbanspoon's ommunity of diners.

4 Rivers Smokehouse has locations in Longwood, Winter Garden and Winter Park. Ethos Vegan Kitchen is located in Winter Park and Yellow Dog Eats is in Windermere.
