Why Glory Days?


About Glory Days Grill

The Glory Days Grill story began in the spring of 1996 with a single restaurant in Burke, Virginia. Our goal? To introduce a new restaurant concept to the community: one that was family oriented and also emphasized the positive attributes of sports. Our original concept was a nod to the “Glory Days” or the “good ole’ days” of sports and highlighted famous moments in sports history. Glory Days Grill was not only the “go to” place after a soccer game, but was also the neighborhood favorite where friends and families gathered for every day celebrations. Our new concept was such a success, the Glory Days Grill franchise was born.

Glory Days Grill is a sports themed American grill and bar that appeals to people of all ages with all types of interests. Since our inaugural opening in 1996, we’ve expanded in Northern Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, North Carolina and Florida and we continue to grow!

Our customers care about great food at affordable prices, outstanding service and real-time entertainment–and that’s exactly what they get here. We are focused on providing our customers with all around excellence and strive to maintain three pillars of focus: commitment to quality food and ingredients, a love of sports and generosity in the surrounding community.

Commitment to Food

Glory Days Grill offers high quality food and drinks at affordable prices. Our diverse, award winning menu features fresh and local ingredients and has something for everyone. From mouth-watering burgers to “Mom’s Mac & Cheese,” we serve up generous portions of a variety of foods to keep our customers coming back for more. Our family friendly menu also offers extensive Gluten Free and allergy friendly options, and tons of choices for kids. We feature daily specials and promotions, ensuring guests always receive high quality food at a great value.

A Love of Sports

Sure you can catch a game on your home TV – but nothing beats watching the last few seconds of a Power Play in high definition, with the community rallying behind you. Couple this with some top notch food and you’ve got yourself a winning combination. Our spirited atmosphere is equipped with numerous high definition TVs and individual volume controlled speakers at every table, always giving you the best seat in the house. While on any given day, Glory Days Grill is packed with die-hard sports fans enjoying a drink and cheering on their teams, our numerous TVs also broadcasts news, popular events and cartoons, making it the perfect restaurant for the whole family.

Generosity in the Surrounding Community

Since our inception, Glory Days Grill has made a concerted effort to focus on the individual communities in which we operate. It’s important to our guests that they feel a sense of community and belonging in the neighborhood, and that’s just what Glory Days Grill gives them. We’ve worked hard to establish ourselves as the go-to place after the local little league game or where friends and families meet to celebrate every day accomplishments.

We realize the importance of giving back and pride ourselves on sponsoring local sports teams, hosting fundraising events and donating to local community programs every year. Being known as “The Official Food of Hometown Sports” is much more than a tagline, it’s a way of life.

Our commitment to those three pillars of focus is what has kept Glory Days Grill as a leader in the industry for over 22 years. Our founders, who are still involved in the day-to-day operations of the restaurant, boast over 120 years of combined restaurant experience and expertise that they continue to bring to the business today.
