Once Upon a Restaurant is a fairy tale-theme restaurant in Elwood City. It is built in the style of a royal castle, and features employees depicted as various fairy tale characters including the Big Bad Wolf, Little Red Riding Hood, the Three Bears, and Ali Baba. There is also a river where the customers ride on the swan boats to go to a specific table to eat.
The restaurant's name comes from "Once Upon a Time", which is how many fairy tales are introduced.
In the episode "D.W., the Picky Eater", D.W. and her family, including Grandma Thora, went there to celebrate Thora's birthday. D.W. ordered Little Bo Peep pot pie, eating without finding out afterwards that it had spinach in it. As a result, this improved her eating habits.
- In "D.W., the Picky Eater", Arthur had biked to the restaurant with D.W., which means that it is within biking distance of their house.
