Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Baltimore, Maryland - My Family Travels

So many families enjoy a long weekend in Baltimore that we've compiled a list of favorite family restaurants serving everything from local seafood to international cuisines.

Lexington Market
400 West Lexington Street
Between Eutaw and Greene
Baltimore, MD 21201
Seafood from Chesapeake Bay, homemade chocolates, ice cream and baked goods, Kosher corned beef, fresh produce, meats and fowl – come and enjoy the flavors of Baltimore at the world’s largest fresh food center.  As they have been doing since 1782, merchants are happy to serve and talk to you about their specialties at 130 stalls.  4,000 parking spaces adjoin the market, or travel there on either the bus or metro. There is weekly entertainment on Saturdays and special festivities at Christmas and other times of the year.

Obrycki’s Crab House and Seafood Restaurant
1727 E. Pratt Street
Baltimore, MD 21231  
This is the place to go for authentic specialties such as peppered hard-shell crabs (ask for a demonstration on how to use your mallet to open the crabs), crab cakes, and other Maryland seafood treats.  This is a hectic, enjoyable place, where kids are certainly part of the scene.

237 S. High Street
Baltimore, MD 21202
Located in Baltimore’s Little Italy, this popular spot features Southern Italian classic wedding soup, pasta, seafood and veal dishes.

Ray Lewis’ Full Moon Bar-B-Q
2400 Boston Street
Baltimore, MD  21224
Baltimore is a southern city, and here’s where you can sample such delicacies as bar-b-que chicken, turkey, pork and brisket, a catfish po-boy, pig in a potato, collard greens and mac’n’cheese, topped off by authentic pecan pie. Come hungry!

Zhongshan Restaurant
323 Park Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21201
Come here to try dim sum, (or “little delicacies”), a traditional tea lunch.  Waiters bring carts filled with small plates of food to your table and you select what looks good.  At the end of the meal, you are charged by the number of empty plates stacked on your table!  They also serve traditional Cantonese and Szechuan dishes in what was formerly “Chinatown” in Baltimore.

Attman’s Delicatessen
1019 East Lombard Street
Baltimore, MD  21202
Serving Baltimoreans since 1915, this old-world, Jewish style deli, located on Baltimore’s “Corned Beef Row,” is conveniently located across the street from the Jewish Museum of Maryland.  Attman’s serves “New York Style” sandwiches and specialties including smoked meats sandwiches, hot dogs, knishes and potato pancakes, and Maryland Crab soup along with Mama’s Matzoh Ball Soup in the “Kibbitz Room” adjacent to the take-out counter.  Now, Attman’s food is available at a second location – at 333 West Camden Street in Camden Yard!

J. Paul’s
301 Light Street
Light Street Pavilion
Baltimore, MD 20007
Come here for fabulous grilled (not fried) crab cakes which are made mostly of fresh crabmeat and not breadcrumbs, and excellent barbeque. A children’s menu is available.

Cheesecake Factory
201 E. Pratt Street, 1st Level
Pratt Street Pavilion, 21202
Popular national chain restaurant offering much more than dessert, although the variety of cheesecakes is amazing.  Extensive menu with 200 selections of salads, sandwiches, pastas and entrees offering very large portions of well-prepared food.  Don’t be surprised by the line outside – come early and try to leave room for some cheesecake.

For more information, visit the Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association or call 877/BALTIMORE.
