The Snyder family considers itself pretty good at "whipping restaurants back into shape. " They've done it several times in recent years when flooding caused temporary closures of the family's Snyder's Willow Grove restaurant, and they're planning to do it when they reopen late next month. But when Snyder's Willow Grove opens this time, it won't be at the familiar Hammonds Ferry Road location in Linthicum Heights but at a new one about a mile and a half away. "The family doesn't want to give up the restaurant business," said manager Kim Snyder, daughter of owner Vernon Snyder.

There will be no more wedding receptions, birthday dinners or high school reunions at Snyder's Willow Grove. For 77 years, the Linthicum Heights restaurant and banquet hall hosted countless family and community celebrations and special dinners. But storms at the end of April forced the Patapsco River over its banks, depositing a foot of water and mud in the Snyder's dining rooms. For Mother's Day, co-owner Vernon Snyder was preparing to serve 1,200 customers, a healthy crowd on one of the restaurant's busiest days of the year.

So close and yet so far.Around the Beltway's many miles, no restaurant may be closer to the roadway than Snyder's Willow Grove, a pebble's skip off I-695 on Hammonds Ferry Road on the south side of town.Yet, in years of driving around the road with no end, neither I nor my husband had ever stopped at Snyder's -- until a recent Sunday when we went there with our two daughters.What we found surprised us. This is a fine, old Baltimore restaurant that cooks with respect for traditional methods, serves with a touch of hominess and generally lets you relax.
