I will be going to Cedar Point in the near future. I would appreciate information on what the best food is that they have to offer. Thanks.

I was there last Thursday and found what I'd call a hidden gem, Miss Keat's Smokehouse. An entree and side is $11.49, comparable in price point with other lacking options you may find (ie. Midway food). It is also on the meal plan. There are four entree options, I had chicken. Everyone in my party got Mac n' Cheese for a side which delicious. All meals come with cornbread. We were joking we would get the meal plan to eat there every 90 minutes.

Personally, I'm a big fan of Famous Dave's as long as you're willing to exit the park for a meal. The prices aren't ridiculous and the barbecue is very good. I have yet to try Miss Keat's, but have heard very positive things.

Of course, you can never go wrong with the new Chick-Fil-A back by Maverick. It is very popular around traditional meal times, but you know what you're going to get.

In all seriousness, I like Miss Keats better than Famous Dave's - at least the Famous Dave's location at Cedar Point.

There are some good places off property in the nearby area. Chet and Matt's, Thirsty Pony, etc. On property, Famous Dave's is our go-to and worth the trip across the street. Miss Keat's was good, Dave's is better. Melt is great as well.

If you are nostalgic and like average food (which I am and I do) , Milan Road has a Ryan's Buffet and a Fazoli's - two big 90s chains that are hard to find these days.

Bay Harbor, though outdated decor-wise, has a really great menu.

Melt is a great: great atmosphere, great food (at least better than expected), great beer, and great air conditioning!

I've only been there once, and it was years ago, but at the time the menu reminded me of My Father's Seafood Place: lots of things broiled in butter. Hopefully that's changed for the better....

Melt is great, pricing isn't far out of line from their suburban locations, plus free refills if you buy soft drinks so you can screw 'em for a few bucks. People gotta drink.

There's a BBQ sandwich place by where Shoot The Rapids was. I thought it was a Famous Dave's quick-serve but I may be mistaken. Their smoked brisket sandwich is really good.

There WAS a burrito place by Mean Streak, but I think it was rethemed this year. The burritos were not spectacular but also not bad, and they were easily big enough to feed 2 people for about 9 bucks with how much they packed in to them.

Everthing else I had there last year was basic frozen food.

Surprised no one has mentioned Pinks. All the way up front by the main entrance, Pinks and Melt seem to be the only places that serve Interesting food. Yes, Pinks is Hot Dogs, but they are good hot dogs with unique topping combos and, IMO, worth the trip.

Melt is worth a visit for the artwork on the walls alone. I've taken out of town Coastertool friends into Melt just to show them all of the old memorabilia, and the employees don't mind at all. Stop inside no matter what, it's worth it.

My new favorite is Sidewinder Sue's (near Maverick on the way to Steel Vengeance). Don't let the price deter you -- it's easily a meal for one, or a good size snack for two. I like the Smokehouse Sidewinder, which is a hearty serving of semi-crispy fries loaded up with pulled brisket, black beans, and BBQ sauce. They also have options with chili or pork with cheese and jalapenos. Also, that area of the park smells pretty awesome this year.

Forgot about that! Really cool stuff. Old rider height signs, tons of photos.

It was Famous Dave’s branded last year but that didn’t last long.

Famous Dave's all the way! But that's just me. I love BBQ and I love the idea of having a full service restaurant at an amusement park! It's a great way to relax during a day of riding coasters. Of course, I am biased! I love the Famous Dave's brand and rarely have anything bad to say about them!

I was just there and expected to go to Famous Daves, but others in my family arrived late and we ended up eating at the Fridays at the Breakers. It was ... a Fridays. The Perkins was a Perkins, too, but we had breakfast there twice and it offered solid, quick, friendly service and the food you'd expect.

In the park we went to Miss Keat's (I just got the pun) and I'd give it a qualified thumbs up; for me it was about as good as I would expect theme park food to be - my expectations are very low, to be sure - but another family member got a serving that was entirely fat. I'm sure they'd have fixed it if we'd complained, but I had more than I needed and gave up half of mine. You can take that as a comment about serving size, but in reality I don't eat much meat. I'd prefer they had offered a roll instead of cornbread so I could have made a sandwich.

By all means, do not, do not, do NOT go to the wraps and salads place on Frontier Trail. It's sandwiched between a pretzel joint and a funnel cake joint. It was as dismal a food experience as I've ever had; way below my very low expectations for theme park food. (The rest of my family had Panda Express, which was what you would expect with fewer choices.)

If you're willing to leave the park and go to downtown Sandusky, there was a nice little taco place called Barra where you'll get much better food for the same money. It's not far from the Merry Go Round Museum (which is totally worth a visit, btw).

Cedar Pount’s food offerings havevactually come a long way. Also, Melt.

^I actually have no doubt about that. Miss Keat's really was pretty OK. I think we just missed some of the other better places, mostly being kinda tired.

As we were walking near Iron Dragon I remembered being a kid and loving the footlong chili dogs they used to have at the Paddlewheel Cafe, roughly in that spot. I can't imagine I would think that today.
