Does anyone have recent information on dinning at or near the Baltimore Inner Harbor? My parents are taking my son to the aquarium next week and I wanted to scope out restaurants ahead of time.

I searched old posts, which said that the aquarium itself used peanut oil, but I just called there and they said that they use "absolutely no peanut oil or peanuts" in their food service.

We took my DD to the aquarium two years ago and she was able to eat at the cafe in the aquarium. She had a hot dog. She was egg and PA at the time (has since developed additional allergies). It's been a while since I've been in the Inner Harbor Pavillions so I don't remember what restaurants they have there.
I just checked and there's a McCormick and Schmick's in the Inner Harbor. We've eaten at the one in Bethesda and Philadelphia and found they handled allergies very well. However, this is a more expensive option for lunch/dinner.

there are three mini malls within walkign distance of the aquarium. One has a McD's and the other a pizza place which, when we checked, was Peanut free and the last has a Pizzeria Uno.
When we travlled last (for the FAAN conference) we went over to Little Italy and ate at some great (familiy oriented) places - each was Peanut Free.
have fun!

If I'm not mistaken, the Acquarium has a sort of food court w/ a McDonalds. If time allows, try to check out the Maryland Science Center. We love to spend a day there & the restaurant manager was very helpful. We also called ahead & ate at the ESPN Zone. They were great!

We too have eaten in the cafe at the Maryland Science center several times with no problems. They offer uncrustables rather than PB&J sandwiches which I consider a good alternative since it is prepackaged. The cafe serves pizza, burgers, chicken sandwiches, nuggets, as well as salads, yogurt, and various snacks.
Also, we've safely eaten at Legal Seafoods. Although they do have some items with nuts, they are extremely allergy aware and actually have an ingredient list for all items. They made mac and cheese for my kids with great care to reduce cross contamination.
