Family friendly near Lincoln Park Zoo?

We are planning on having a very early dinner (5 p.m) on THursday after the zoo. Anyway that is very accomodating for 2 toddlers? We were thinking RJ Grunts. We would like to be within walking distance.
Thanks!

    RJ Grunts is close by and I would call it kid friendly - http://www.rjgruntschicago.com/

      There is a Cosi at the corner of Clark and Webster.

      I also think there is a deli (not Kosher) Max's on the corner of Webster & Clark

        Try Stanley's Kitchen and Tap on the corner of Lincoln and Armitage. A short walk from the zoo, kid friendly, and good food (note: the front area is a bar, but the back room containing the restaurant is homey and kid friendly). We often go there with our two little ones after trips to the zoo.

          I agree that Stanley's and RJ Grunts are probably your two most convenient choices. You'll see the strollers lined up outside RJ Grunts.

            There's Francine's Deli on N. Clarke and depending the time you're going, there is the Pancake House, right by the zoo...I think it is open until 3PM
