Other than that I am kinda scratching my head for real family friendly places downtown. You could always look at the City Market or Circle Center Mall but the mall has mostly chains.
I haven't been back home in a couple years but isn't there a good local pizza place in Irvington now? Not too far from downtown, I can't remember the name though.
