Best Kid-Friendly Dining

Glory Days Grill

1220 E. Joppa Road, Towson, (443) 901-0270,

Posted 9/17/2008

We hesitate to recommend a place to take kids that boasts as many TV screens as this sports-themed Towson spot does. But if you do TV with your kids, you know few things make a meal easier for everyone than a little Tom and Jerry, and the staff here usually has a few sets tuned to Boomerang for old-school pre-toy-tie-in cartoons. But more than that, said staff at this regional chain has never, ever thrown us any 'tude when we show up with the young 'uns in tow, or when we leave maybe just a little bit of a mess. The grownup food--burgers, ribs, salads, pasta, etc.--is decent pub grub (Glory Days is a regional chain), and the kids' menu features something for almost every picky eater. And if all else fails, there's the Shark Attack, a kid's cup of Sprite decorated with a hollow plastic shark full of grenadine syrup. Dump the syrup in the soda and it looks like a feeding frenzy over ice. These are clearly people who understand what kids dig.
