Baltimore with toddlers - Inner Harbor

Headed to the Inner Harbor in a few weeks...kind of an unexpected trip. We'll have our 1.5 and 3 year olds with us. Staying at the Inner Harbor. What are some family friendly places to eat? Also, any good pizza? I believe there is a Whole Foods right there as well so we can always grab some prepared food and head outside to eat by the water.

All cuisines are fine. We live in New England, so seafood isn't necessary. And my kiddos do very well in restaurants.

  1. Oh, and we will have a car.

    1. For an only in Baltimore pizza, go to Matthew's, which is no more than 2 miles from Inner Harbor, and serves its very own style of pizza. Check this board and do a google search on the place. Loads written about it. As an added bonus, you can stop with at the playground in Patterson Park with the kiddies just a few blocks away.

      For regular old brick over pizza, Bagby's is right across the street from Whole Foods.

        Iggie's is close and has great pizza. Try the chick pea soup, my kids dig it. Gelato is good, too.

        Forget the Inner Harbor, I say go to Fells Point (there is a park). There are all kinds of chains in the Inner Harbor that are kid friendly, Panera, Potbelly, Chipotle, but you can get that stuff anywhere. In Fells Point, there are a lot of kid friendly places, like the french bakery (Napoleon, quiche is good), Jimmy's Diner, Brick Oven Pizza (ok place to get a slice), Pitango Gelato, Liquid Earth (great veggie eats, but a little slow), Duda's (bar food, not fast either) and many more.
