Family-friendly seafood in Escondido/Carlsbad area?

I'll be a tourist in a few weeks time, traveling with my parents, my almost 3 year old boy who hasn't liked fish, and my four year old niece who happily devours almost any kind of fish she is offered. My parents and I are looking to get some suggestions on what might please all of us. The three adults on this trip will try anything, and our entree price range is like $15 or so. Hopefully the kind of place that doesn't require a reservation, and recommendations of specific dishes to try are appreciated.
What comes to mind? Thank you in advance!

Queen Anne/downtown with a young toddler

Hello, I'm new here. *waves at everyone*
For my college graduation gift, my parents are taking my 18-month old son and me to Seattle. We'll be staying near the border of Queen Anne and downtown, and we have no plans to rent a car. My parents and I are fans of ethnic food, with our favorites probably being Thai or Middle Eastern (them) or Korean or sushi (me). However, we are up for anything. I think my dad and I would like to try the local beers, so a brewery with good burgers is what I'm after. My son does well at restaurants, but I think noisy, kid-friendly places would work best for us. We are Arizonans, so places with patio seating are a bonus too! It's triple digits for us now.
Cheap eats are great too, as I am unemployed and they are retired teachers.
Oh, and seafood. None of us are big fish eaters, but when in Rome... Any recs on seafood restaurants whose waitstaff will be patient with a family who does not really do fish?
Lastly, we will be doing a day at Bainbridge. Sifting through the boards, I see a lot of Cafe Nola recs, and that's not our speed at all. Is there an amazing brunch place there?
We'll be catching a ballgame, and I know we're taking Little Man to the kids' museum and Experience Music too, so any recs in those areas are much appreciated. Pike Place is on the agenda, and I hope there's time for me to hit up Archie McPhee too.
