This Week’s SPOTLIGHT On:

Glory Days Tavern

1200 Hornberger Ave., Roebling


Representing Florence Economic Development Committee


Glory Days Tavern is a local pub found in the historic town of Roebling in Florence Township. It is just off Route 130 and a short drive from Exit 57 of I-295.

Roebling was founded by Charles Roebling in the early 1900s and the town is a lasting monument to the Glory Days of the industrial revolution. The Tavern is committed to celebrating and preserving the history of that historic city.

John A. Roebling's Sons Co. was the business that really established the town. The company had outgrown its space at the Trenton Wire Works Factory as the brothers endeavored to build a steel manufacturing mill. The Roeblings purchased the property with distinct intentions to not only build the mill, but also homes for the workforce, and convenient transportation from Trenton and Philadelphia with a river line stop in the heart of downtown.

Until 1974, when the mill closed for good, the town was home to strictly mill workers and its families.

Modern Roebling is unique and ever-changing, and Glory Days Tavern reflects that. It is an open venue that believes in creating some of the best days for people of all ages and to stir your memories. The intention of Glory Days is to bring all of South and Central Jersey great food, craft beers, specialty cocktails, and good times. 

Hours: Mon., Wed., Thurs. 11 a.m.-12 midnight; Fri. 11 a.m.-1:30 a.m.; Sat. 9 a.m.-1:30 a.m.; Sun.12 noon-11 p.m.

(Expires April 30, 2017 and cannot be combined with any other offers)

Why Buy Local?

If each household in Burlington County spent just $10 more each month at Burlco businesses, the resulting annual impact to the local economy would be about $19.9 MILLION DOLLARS!

For every $100 spent locally in independently owned stores, shops and restaurants, $44 to $83 is re-circulated in the local economy.  When $100 is spent in national chains, only $14 to $43 stays in the local economy.

How we all benefit by shopping Burlington County:

  • Keep Burlington County's economy strong and growing.
  • Embrace local businesses, which create 80% of new jobs and often provide better wages and benefits
  • Save time and money and protect the environment. Shopping locally saves travel time and gas money
  • Get great products and services at competitive prices at any of Burlington County's 8,000 one-of-a-kind, independent businesses 
  • Create a sense of community. Community groups get 350% more support from local business owners than non-locally owned businesses.
